I am trying to pick a destination, on the romantic side, for early to mid-December. The catch is that I will have three nights free up to Category 5 + a little over 30,000pts (Cat 6). The original plan was Miami beach and the Dolphins/Patriots game BUT of course all of the Miami beach Marriotts start at Category 6 so I cannot use my certificates. From here I've tried to utilize Tripadvisor and Travel+Leisure to find top destinations that won't be freezing and have good Marriott Category 5 options.
I have pretty much narrowed my options down to San Diego (Downtown or La Jolla) and New Orleans (French Quarter).
What does everyone think? Does anyone have other ideas?
