A time-tested way to save on a vacation is to stay at a brand new hotel and get in at the low introductory rate. On the downside, you can expect that the staff might still be working out some kinks. But on the upside, it’s a great opportunity to pay less on shiny new digs.
Here are four brand new kid-friendly hotels in popular family destinations with tempting deals to celebrate their openings:

Where: Orlando, Florida Why: Because if you’re looking for a last-minute spring break steal, the retro-themed Cabana Bay Beach Resort at Universal Orlando Resort will offer family suites that can sleep six. Save up to 25 percent when you stay four or more nights.
