Spring has arrived and now is the time to start planning your summer travel schedule. Marriott International is inviting all travelers, from families and couples to eco-friendly and history buffs, to celebrate warmer weather and longer days with a trip that suits their interests. Whether your idea of paradise is a tropical beach, a cultural museum or a vibrant city, there’s a dream destination that’s waiting to be discovered.
The St. Regis Deer Valley in Utah
Park City, UT – Best known as a ski town, Park City should not be overlooked in the summer months. With warmer weather comes an abundance of outdoor activities for the whole family, including fly-fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and hot air ballooning. Offering luxury accommodations, 2- to 4-bedroom residences and fantastic onsite restaurants, The St. Regis Deer Valley is a top hotel for families. Throughout a family’s stay, the hotel team can recommend and arrange a selection of recreational activities and enriching experiences.
Landmark Bucket List
Boston, MA – One of New England’s favorite weekend getaways is best explored in the Summer. There’s no shortage of baseball games, outdoor dining and concerts, or neighborhoods to discover by foot or bike, not to mention the endless historic landmarks and monuments. Don’t miss the statue of Paul Revere, Boston Common, Harvard University, or the Freedom Trail. When the day is done, return to a cozy, comfortable room at The Westin Copley Place, Boston, not far from Boston’s famous shopping district on Newbury Street.

Philadelphia, PA – Like Boston, the City of Brotherly Love is most popular in the Summer – and for good reasons. Warm weather is crucial for touring around and tracing U.S. history around the city of Philadelphia, which is home to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, also known as the birth place of the U.S. The modern Courtyard Philadelphia South at the Navy Yard offers a location to easily explore the landmarks, local colleges and universities as well as popular sports venues.
Washington, D.C. – An easy trip from most eastern states, Washington, D.C. is a great destination for the budget-minded travelers who like to keep busy on vacation. Marriott Marquis Washington DC is the perfect home base to explore the city’s best attractions – many of which offer free admission.
Las Vegas, NV – Vegas is buzzing year-round and summertime is no exception. It’s especially ideal for a quick escape from the western states, with affordable flights. The Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel offers an onsite Navigator which curates a weekly list of In-The-Know recommendations to help visitors discover the city’s hidden gems, and keep cool.
Denver, CO – Named one of America’s most fit cities, Denver is also emerging as one of the best destinations for a green summer vacation. Denver has a bike sharing program with more than 80 stations and 700 bikes across the city. Many of the stations are located within two blocks of The Ritz-Carlton, Denver. Centered in the heart of downtown Denver, the luxury hotel balances Denver’s earthy vibes and places guests near the city’s most popular attractions including Coors Field, Mile High Stadium, outdoor recreation, museums and culinary experiences. Of course, even the most wellness-minded travelers wouldn’t want to miss the local breweries.
San Francisco, CA – The JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square has an ideal location in the heart of the city, which is perfect for biking around town. Northern California bike culture is booming – just two years ago, San Francisco was named the second most friendly bike city with one of the best bike share programs in the country. By the end of 2018, the Bay Area’s Ford GoBike network will be the second-largest bike share system in North America, with 7,000 bikes and 546 stations.
Fire + Ice Vacations
Honolulu, HI – There’s no shame in wanting a luxury tropical vacation, especially when the resort incorporates the local culture. A landmark on world-renowned Waikiki Beach, The Royal Hawaiian Resort, a Luxury Collection Resort is known for its rare, authentic, indigenous experiences. Referred to as “The Pink Palace of The Pacific,” guests can soak up the sun and cool off in the water on a private beach, enjoy a spa treatment, or immerse themselves in Hawaiian culture with one of the resort’s daily activities, including making floral lei, shell bracelets, Hawaiian quilts, and more.
Montevideo Uruguay – Because Uruguay is in the southern hemisphere, those looking to escape the summer heat of the northern continents should consider a trip during July – September. The temperate climate of Uruguay brings temperatures of about 40-60 °F in the winter months and there’s no shortage of sun. So while the days may feel cold, they are usually sunny. Explore Old City and the authentic culture of Montevideo while staying at the Four Points By Sheraton Montevideo. Stroll “La Rambla”, a beautiful oceanfront promenade with outstanding beaches and beautiful sunsets.
Health & Wellness
Vancouver, Canada – Vancouver is a walking city and the downtown core measures just 1.2 miles across at the widest point, which allows visitors to reach multiple landmarks by foot. Located within Parq Vancouver, the new entertainment destination in downtown Vancouver, the DOUGLAS, Autograph Collection seamlessly introduces nature into an elegant, urban environment, with a living green wall that breathes fresh air into the space and in-room amenities including purely natural Aesop products, detoxifying charcoal water and locally sourced refreshments. In the destination there’s no shortage of bike paths, group runs or yoga classes.
