Whether it’s a staycation or a trip to a far destination, these hotels have activities to keep you (and your kids or travel buddies) busy during the winter season.
It's nice to be home for the holidays, but sometimes, you just want to get away. From relaxing in a SoCal resort pool with a Rudolf floaty to harvesting glacial ice for craft cocktails, these six packages are sure to bring you a little—or a lot of—cheer.
1. #StyleOrdered In at Hotel Zelos, San Francisco
Perfect For: Girls Getaway
You’ve been shopping for everyone on your list this holiday season—but what about yourself? Enter Hotel Zelos. The downtown San Francisco hotel has partnered with fashion startup Boon + Gable to give guests a stylish stay in more ways than one. Prior to their stay, guests can fill out a style profile. A personal stylist from Boon + Gable will bring 20 hand-picked items directly to a guest’s hotel room (in the appropriate size) for a fashion consult, accompanied by complimentary mimosas and $120 credit to spend on a new outfit. It’s a unique shopping experience and a relatively affordable way to have a personal stylist for the day—plus, if you are from the area, you can continue the service in the comfort of your home.
Starting at $414/night. Book here.
2. Glacier Adventure at Four Seasons Whistler, Whistler, B.C.
Perfect for: Adventurous Food Lovers
If farm-to-table dining isn’t exciting enough, try this glacier-to-cocktail experience. When guests book the ice cap foodie experience, a private helicopter flies them past stunning mountain peaks to a remote ice cap where they will be outfitted with Canada Goose Black Label parkas and Sorel boots for champagne tasting and ice-cave exploring. While adventuring, guests can harvest pure glacier ice, an essential ingredient in the custom cocktail the resorts’ mixologist makes for guests upon their return.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-966-2700 to book a package; price upon inquiry.
