Your job: Decide to get out of town and fast. Our job: Help you find where you're headed. This week, NBCLA's Worth the Drive takes us to...
In-Town Getaways: A three-day weekend is coming up, but you haven't planned. Time fleeting, obligations pending. But there are still jaunts to be had and deals to nab around Los Angeles, so no need to sweat planning something major, and majorly faraway. We like:
Omni Hotels & Resorts: The more nights you stay, the more nights you save (one night=10% off, two=20%, three=30%). Plus we're sweet on this: Omni says if you pre-tweet your vacation, you'll get a gratis cocktail. Easy. The Omni Los Angeles is at 251 S. Olive.
Langham Huntington: "Third night free." Yep, three nice words put all in a row. That's the Pasadena landmark's offer for the Memorial Day Weekend. And we're betting those lush grounds are extra lushy right about now.
The Portofino: Rates are starting at $149 a night at the Redondo Beach hotel. There's also a third-night-free thing going down. We're liking the comp beach cruisers, and the possibility of spotting sea life frolicking in the waves. Actually, we're just liking being very close to the waves. A fine place to start the summer season.
