Pick a coast, any coast. Springtime just begs for relaxing escapes that start with coffee and a view and end with wine and something indulgent. And right now, both coasts have hotels offering great deals in prime retreat destinations.
In Northern California, Hotel Healdsburg sits on an idyllic corner of the town of Healdsburg, just north of Sonoma in wine country. It’s modern without being out-of-place with the sweet park it sits in front of or the rolling vine-covered hills just beyond town, has a full-service spa, and a fireplace in the lobby that draws guests and locals in for nightcaps. It also happens to be mere blocks from one of the region’s best restaurants, Cyrus. The hotel has their Explore Sonoma Wine Country Package, available now through May 31, which includes three nights in a deluxe room; a chef’s tasting menu at their lobby restaurant, Dry Creek Kitchen; VIP tasting passes to some of the best wineries in the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, and the Dry Creek Valley; a special wine country gift; and daily gourmet breakfasts. The package will run you $988.
Then, back east, the much-lauded, cozy, and antique-filled Old Inn on the Green (it was once a stagecoach stop in the 1700s) is offering a two-night escape to the Berkshires. The hotel has racked up awards for their rustic fine dining restaurant on the property, their catering and events arm, and their countryside-chic Southfield Store, where they sell freshly baked goods, locally made gelato, and serve casual breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The romance continues with wood-burning fireplaces, a swimming pool, small library, and wraparound terraces. And they are offering a two-night spring escape (with meals) now for $349. (This trip would regularly set you back more than $850!) The two-night stay includes a four-course fireside dinner for two, three-course lunch at the Southfield Store café, and breakfasts each morning. Book here, through TravelZoo, and redeem with the hotel when you’re ready to decide on dates.
So go somewhere new, or take advantage of these deals to re-experience a place you love, but either way, act now.
