Last year I stayed at a gorgeous Autograph Collection hotel in Savannah, Mansion on Forsyth Park, for an unbelievable rate of $149 night. I was hoping someone knew of other similar deals this summer at a top tier Marriott like AC Hotels, Autograph Collection, JW Marriott, Renaissance, etc. I would like to keep it within a 10 hour drive of Cincinnati.
The following are more important to me than the price:
- Walking distance to a city center (or at least walkable neighborhood)
- A fantastic bathtub or in-room Jacuzzi
I was considering the following cities (in order) but I am very open to suggestions.
- Charleston, SC
- Chicago, IL
- Ashville, NC
- Atlanta, GA
- Nashville, TN
- Pittsburgh, PA
- New Orleans, LA
Music, art, food, and cocktails (or bourbon) within walking distance are important factors for a successful vacation for my wife and I. We fall somewhere on the hipster spectrum but we aren't pretentious or judgmental. We do not have children so family entertainment is not a factor.
Thanks for your tips! We are new at vacationing and I sincerely appreciate any pointers.
