Chicago Hiltons

Escape to Chicago this winter for a cozy getaway from Hiltons of Chicago. Some of my favorite things about winter in Chicago are ice skating outside, going to indoor concerts, seeing public art at Millennium Park, as well as the Art Institute of Chicago, holiday shopping on Michigan Avenue, and dining in the West Loop neighborhood, where so many great restaurants (Girl & the Goat, Nellcote, Au Cheval, GEB, etc.) have opened over the last few years.

As an added bonus during the winter, a fully developed underground pedway can take us all the way from the hotels to stores, restaurants, and train stations without ever going above ground to face the snow.

This winter, the Hiltons of Chicago invite us to take a Chillcation – an escape solely dedicated to chilling and detaching from the winter monotony with a quick jaunt to unwind, relax, and reset. This seasonal Chicago-specific offer continues with wintery packages and events throughout the season (ending April 20th, 2014) and allows us to customize our own Chillcation, providing a variety of valuable discounts and amenities for those who are looking for a fun-filled and activity-based getaway in the Windy City. Participating hotels include: Conrad Chicago, Hilton Chicago, and Palmer House Hilton. (pictured here)

Starting at just $103 a night, the Chillcation allows us to experience Chicago without breaking the bank. Please visit online for more information and to reserve a Chillcation at a top Chicago hotel. 


South Beach Marriott

To celebrate the start of its $9 million transformation, South Beach Marriott is offering a “SOBE Soiree” package, which invites us to experience the beachfront accommodations while sipping on complimentary cocktails.

With rates starting at $269 per night, the package includes accommodations, two signature drinks at Deco Blue and complimentary Wi-Fi.  Of course we can also get to take a dip in the ocean-view infinity-edge pools and jacuzzi, indulge in the boutique spa and plant our toes in the white sand beaches at our leisure.

Nestled in the trendy South of Fifth neighborhood, South Beach Marriott’s exclusive address is an easy stroll to high-end shopping and exquisite dining options nearby.

The “Sobe Soiree” offer is valid through December 29, 2013. To book please visit online or call 1.800.228.9290. Use promotional code YQ1.

The hotel’s redesign, kicked off May 1st, is slated for completion by the end of the year and will transform the hotel’s guest rooms, suites, elevator lobbies, hotel corridors and Concierge Lounge. During the project the hotel will operate as usual with no visual impact on guests. Work will be confined to up to two floors at a time and restricted to daytime hours. All hotel amenities will be available throughout the process including the pool, spa, fitness center, dining at Deco Blue and Starbucks.

Overseeing the $9 million renovation will be General Manager David Cronin, 42, who joined the South Beach Marriott in November 2012. Minimizing impact to hotel guests during the renovation is Mr. Cronin’s top priority. 

It will be business as usual at the hotel during the renovation with a focus on maintaining guest satisfaction,“ Cronin said. “We plan to keep the community involved and updated on the process through traditional and social media updates and look forward to unveiling our new design at the end of the year.”


Sandpearl Resort Clearwater Beach

The sequel of the Warner Bros.’ blockbuster hit, “Dolphin Tale”, recently began filming at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to the famous dolphin, Winter. Since almost every family that stays at Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach makes a visit to the aquarium, the resort is offering a special “Winter the Dolphin Family Package” available to book for visits in between filming. The CMA just announced that it is open to the public on the weekends*, so it’s a great opportunity for families to see the movie set and Winter the dolphin before the second movie debuts in September 2014.
“Dolphin Tale 2” will continue to follow the true story of the rescued bottlenose dolphins, Winter and Hope. In the meantime, we can book the “Winter the Dolphin Family Package” that includes:
  • Two general admission tickets to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium 
  • Daily breakfast for two adults & two children
  • A copy of the book “Winter’s Tale”
  • Accommodations of your choice
Rates start at $299/night and a two-night stay is required. Package is subject to availability and is only available on the weekends and dates outlined below. To reserve, call 877-726-3111 or book online and use promo code WINTER.

*The Clearwater Marine Aquarium will be open through the holidays, Nov. 29-Dec. 1 and Dec. 21-Jan. 5, 2014. Once filming concludes, the resort’s package will be offered regularly.

Kauai Sands Hotel

In search of a little eye candy on your next vacation? Head to the Kauai Sands Hotel, an affordable oceanfront property located in Kauai’s Kapaa Town, recently named one of “America’s Prettiest Towns” by Forbes Magazine. To celebrate the town’s recent honor, Kauai Sands Hotel is offering a Free Car Promotion that allows us to discover Kapaa’s charm, as well as the beauty of the entire island.

Part of Aqua Hospitality’s Lite Hotels collection, Kauai Sands Hotel is a refreshed, affordable getaway located along a secluded beach on Kauai’s Royal Coconut Coast. The property features recently refreshed guest rooms, six acres of lush lawns, tropical gardens and two outdoor pools. Just outside the hotel, we can visit Kapaa, a quaint Hawaiian town home to local craftsmen, artists, restaurants and shops. Just minutes away are Wailua River, Wailua Golf Course, and Coconut Marketplace Shopping Center.

“Kapaa has a small-town Polynesian paradise quality that feels much more connected to the island’s past. It’s a very Hawaiian town with traditional ukulele makers and fish taco trucks parked under the palm trees,” said Andrew Evans, a writer with National Geographic Traveler and one of the judges that honored Kapaa with the prettiest town distinction. Evans further described Kapaa as, “A small town with a lot of Hawaiian life, minus the tourist fray. Shop in the morning, then kayak offshore in the afternoon and don’t worry about fighting for blanket space in the sand - there’s enough for everybody.”

Soak up the views, beauty and Hawaiian culture with Kauai Sands Hotel’s Free Car Promotion that starts at just $135 and includes a compact car, double room upgrade to pool view accommodations and daily parking. All hotel stays also include a complimentary Continental breakfast.
