Omni Grove Park Inn (Asheville, NC) – Nestled in the heart of the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina is Asheville. This up and coming city is one of the cleanest in the US and is becoming recognized as the “Napa Valley of craft breweries”. The Omni Grove Park Inn has been in operation for over 100 years and is situated amongst some of the best attractions in Asheville. Not only does the resort offer golf, tennis and a beautiful spa, but visitors can also check out the gorgeous Biltmore Estate only a few miles away. If you want to see a different side of North Carolina that is perfect for visiting in any season, we highly recommend the Grove Park Inn.


Omni Corpus Christi Hotel (Corpus Christi, TX) – Corpus Christi is the largest coastal city in Texas so it’s not surprising that there are plenty of beautiful beaches and outdoor activities available. Omni has a fantastic property set up right by the water and a couple of blocks from downtown. The best of arts and culture, from the Port of Corpus Christi to the Art Museum of South Texas, are all within walking distance from the hotel. If you’re looking to journey a bit farther out, you can also see King Ranch and the South Texas Botanical Gardens. Texas is a huge state with lots to offer and we think Corpus Christi is a great place to stop.

You can catch a Suns or Diamondbacks game at Chase Field or take a look at the past through the Pueblo Grande Ruins.

Doubletree Berkeley Marina (Berkeley, CA) – With San Francisco right next door, Berkeley is sometimes overlooked. This is unfortunate because this city is bursting with culture and a vibe that is all its own. The historically renowned UC Berkeley campus is enjoyable for people of all ages to visit, as are the downtown shops and sites. Visitors can also experience true California cuisine in the “Gourmet Ghetto”, an area full of innovative and distinctive restaurants. If you are looking to get the full Bay Area experience, you can hop on the Doubletree’s complimentary shuttle, which will take you within a few miles of the hotel and BART station. Between Berkeley, San Francisco, and Napa, this hotel is perfect for those looking to see Northern California.
