What we found was the hotel website price is almost always the cheapest.

For example, we checked out prices for the Westin Resort & Spa in Cancun. Hotels.com quoted us a price of $163, Westin.com had a price of $159, and the phone reservation specialist gave us a price of $217.29 per night.

Finally, for the Millennium Broadway Hotel in Times Square New York, the price was the same across the board: $121 a night.
