This year, go for a fall getaway close to home with one of these area favorites:
The Delamar Hotel, Greenwich, Southport and West Hartford, CT: If you want the feeling of a European vacation but the proximity to home, book a room at one of their three locations. Enjoy cocktails with a view, exceptional cuisine or a massage in the spa.
Mayflower Inn & Spa, Washington, CT: One of our favorite places to recharge is this almost 60-acre hotel, where you can spend lots of time at the spa and enjoy great meals made from local ingredients.
The J House Greenwich, Greenwich: While all the rooms at this modern hotel are well-appointed and high-tech, consider their suites, some of which come with private patios, work spaces (weekday getaway, anyone?) and kitchenettes.
The Brenton Hotel, Newport, RI: Just opened in July, this hotel is right on the water, and the floor-to-ceiling windows are a great way to take it in. So is their Garden Roof Top, which offers games and incredible views.
