Hotwire Suggests the Five Perfect Mother’s Day Getaway Gifts

Families-at-OCR

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, many people around the country are struggling to find the right way to express just how much their mom means to them. Is it a card and flowers kind of year?  Or would perfume and slippers do the trick? Maybe a spa visit or a nice Sunday brunch would be better?  I did a little research and found that the National Retail Federation estimates the average spend for Mother’s Day 2016 will be $172.22. What if this Mother’s Day, moms everywhere got what they really wanted…time away!

You might not normally correlate a Mother’s Day gift with a hotel stay, but if you’re going to be spending in the neighborhood of $150 for Mother’s Day anyway, why not give her what she really wants?  Last year, a colleague of mine booked a room at a Seattle-area hotel for his busy wife. He got a great deal and was able to add on an in-room massage with the money he saved. He took the kids for the weekend, and his wife came home relaxed and refreshed. Honestly, in today’s busy world, what mom wouldn’t want a day or two away?

To help inspire you to book a ‘staycation’ for the mom on your list, I searched and found some great deals (all prices include Hot Rate® Hotel; travel dates May 7th– 8th) that will let her relax and enjoy the getaway she so deserves. And with prices this low, you might end up spending less than you would on flowers and brunch.

Seattle – If you live in the Pacific Northwest, get mom a four-star hotel in Downtown Seattle starting at $123 a night. With plenty to do around the hotel (SAM, the Sculpture Park and Pike Place Market are just a few ideas), she’s sure to really enjoy her weekend getaway.

Los Angeles – Los Angeles has lots of options for mom to enjoy a weekend away. Get her a room at a four-star hotel in Downtown Los Angeles for as low as $140 a night. With amazing shops, restaurants and spas nearby, she’s guaranteed to have a good time.

Chicago – Chicago has some major deals for Mother’s Day weekend, including four-star hotels starting at $86 per night. With those kinds of savings, you can even get mom a massage and facial to guarantee she has the most relaxing stay possible.

Miami – If surf and sand is more moms’ style, get her an evening stay in sunny Miami for the weekend. With four-star hotels start at $93 and up, and she’ll be able to enjoy some peaceful sunbathing at her leisure.

Dallas – Texas is beautiful this time of year. With rates starting as low as $79 and up for a four-star hotel, you can’t beat the price either.

Whatever you decide to get mom for Mother’s Day, she’s bound to be thrilled. Just don’t be afraid to think outside the box a bit for what will give her the most enjoyment. To moms everywhere!
