Living in South Florida can be a double edged sword, especially where vacations are concerned. When I worked for corporate America, my vacations were usually taken when family came HERE, rather than me going away. That’s what started my love affair with StayCations. I love the idea of taking a few days away from home, with the destination being within driving distance. Here are a couple of StayCation ideas that I’m currently pondering:
Enjoy a weekend stay at the downtown JW Marriott Marquis hotel and receive complimentary valet parking per night, along with complimentary breakfast for two at ThreeFortyFive Restaurant. Throughout their stay, “local tourists” can also enjoy a relaxing spa treatment at the hotel’s spa, Rik Rak, or a romantic dinner at db Bistro Moderne. The rates per night range from $259-349. This promotion is good 7 day a week, through September 30. Other terms and conditions apply. Use rate code ZZ1.

With luxury upgrades, savings and an exhaust-free ride through the city, Sagamore, The Art Hotel – or should we say the “smART” hotel – is wising up on how to combat gas prices by offering an exclusive package available only to guests with a valid Florida State I.D and only through September 30. The “eco-lodge-ical” deal features a special rate at the South Beach hotel and two 30-hour bike rental passes with DECOBIKE. Rates start as low as $220 per night and also include a complimentary room upgrade and free wi-fi. Enter the rate code S1 or call 877.242.6673 and ask for the package. Other restrictions, as well as black out dates apply. Should you end up here, be sure to stop by the Muse Beauty Suite, get some spa treatments, and say hi to my bestie, Sabrina Badeaux!
Well, what do you think?
