With travel restrictions being lifted and life starting to slowly return to “normal”, we wanted to share a couple cool spots to help you escape the crowds and relax this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend. Here are a few of our favorites:

Grand Hyatt Baha Mar – Nassau, Bahamas: A quick flight from most southeastern states, beckons travelers with 1,000 acres of ample outdoor space, 40+ international dining options, and 1,800 spacious rooms with waterfront views. Guests can soak up the sun on the white sands of Cable Beach, lounge in a private cabana alongside one of seven elaborate pools, snorkel with marine life at the on-site Beach Sanctuary, enjoy treatments at the 30,000-square-foot ESPA Spa, partake in a round of golf on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Design golf course, or enjoy a unique flamingo yoga class in Flamingo Cay. Travelers who book a 3-night stay will also receive their 4th night for free, plus $100 resort credit. 

French Quarter Inn – Charleston, SC: Recently named No. 1 Hotel in the U.S. for the second year in a row for TripAdvisor’s 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards, this 50-room luxury boutique hotel is in the heart of the Historic District and footsteps away from the city’s major attractions. Days can begin with enjoying complimentary artisanal in-room breakfast followed by a bicycle ride to the waterfront with the hotel’s vintage bicycles. Leave time to explore the city’s historic architecture, award-winning culinary scene, and shopping along famed King Street before winding down with hotel’s complimentary southern turndown service and extensive sleep programming, which includes a seven-option pillow menu and sound machine to lull guests to sleep.

The Foundry Hotel – Asheville, NC: Set among the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains with mild temperatures and blooming scenery, Asheville makes an ideal MDW. Guests at The Foundry Hotel can immerse themselves in local culture with one-on-one neighborhood tours with an on-site historian, chauffeured brewery visits via the hotel’s Tesla Model X house car, and drives along the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway for a daytrip to The Biltmore Estate, the largest private residence in the U.S. 5x James Beard nominee John Fleer leads the hotel’s culinary program, complete with a 100-seat Appalachian-inspired soul food restaurant and second-floor lobby bar, Workshop Lounge.
