ROAD TRIP DAYDREAMS: March has many gifts to give, from some impressive breezes and showers, to college basketball showdowns, to green beer and delicious corned beef, to that traditional hit-the-road week, spring break. But even if we're a few years, or decades, out of school, and haven't truly taken a quick trip in March or April, the notion can still call to us, much in the way rooting for our favorite team, or finding some old-school corned beef on March 17, can call to us, too. The lovely thing, of course, is that some hotel groups make taking a break in the spring, even if it isn't a spring break, a bit easier, thanks to a slate of specials, deals, and discounts. Those tend to flower, like so much lilac or wisteria, around the start of March, and, before you know it, those specials will blow out on the next spring-sweet breeze. In short? Best act soon, in this season of change.
HISTORIC HOTELS OF AMERICA... can help those getaway-based spring fancies, via its Spectacular Spring Savings Sale. Note first that you'll need to choose and book by the last day in March, though when you can stay, and travel, will vary. You'll want to move quickly for the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa and Omni San Francisco, which are offering savings for March 2017 stays. La Valencia in La Jolla is shaving off 25% for select nights through June 1, while Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel, is offering 20% select overnights through the end of June. The best bet? Peruse the whole list, see what the discounts are, and what nights they'll apply. If all of the elements dovetail for you, and you can follow those spring breezes and longing to take to the road to a vintage and lovely property, cheers to that.
