US Cities…Virgin Holidays Style

Press release January 21, 2010 Tourism

US Cities are the next hot thing for travel in 2010, and Boston hotels are on our hot list.

US Cities are the next hot thing for travel in 2010, and Boston hotels are on our hot list.  The city is often overlooked for its bigger neighbour New York but the city offers plenty in the way of history, art, culture and shopping – all the ingredients for a perfect city break.  Hotels in Boston are very spacious and central to all the action.  The Fairmont Copley Plaza is in a stunning location – Back Bay – and even has its own hotel dog that residents can walk when at the hotel, getting that ‘at home’ feeling!  The Taj Boston is also a great Boston Hotel – on the waterfront and also walking distance from the theatre district, perfect for keen thespians.

Chicago hotels are as chic as their Boston counterparts with seven hotels offered in the Virgin Holidays range.  The James is a top pick for boutique hotel lovers and is part of the leading hotels of the world collection.  The hotel also houses David Burke’s Primehouse, a favourite amongst locals, the restaurant serves some of the best steaks in town.  Cheap hotels in Chicago are also popular, with the Essex Inn offering great value for money and some exclusive benefits for Virgin Holidays customers.  Free parking is available for all Virgin Holidays guests and a free shuttle to the Magnificent Mile – a shopaholics paradise!

Hotels in Washington include some of the trendiest picks in the Virgin Holidays programme.  The famous Kimpton hotels are in abundance with both the Hotel Helix and Omni Shoreham in the programme.  The hotels are extremely funky with late check out exclusive to Virgin Holidays guests, complementary room upgrades for certain travel dates and 20% discount on spa treatments – so a decadent break is on the cards!   Other Washington hotels for more old school glamour include the Fairmont and Ritz Carlton.  The Fairmont is in the Virgin Holidays platinum range and is in the city centre, perfect for visiting all of Washington’s best free museums.  Whereas the Ritz Carlton is in an older part of the city centre, perfect for history lovers.
