Cozy, tastefully decorated rooms are tucked within a series of 19th-century buildings in the French Quarter, and some have charming original features like exposed brick and balconies.

Stay Near an Icon in New York City

Whether it’s your first or 50th visit, the Big Apple always has new attractions, restaurants, and cocktail bars to discover, while classic experiences, like hanging out in Times Square or shopping on Fifth Avenue, are always worth revisiting. Just two blocks from a true New York icon, the Empire State Building, the Arlo NoMad makes exploring easy. Bright, funky rooms have huge windows gazing across the city that never sleeps. You can get some shuteye, though, thanks to the marshmallowy beds.

Wake Up to Ocean Views in Honolulu

Think of Honolulu and there’s a good chance Waikiki Beach’s crescent of champagne-hued sand comes to mind. This highlight of the city is steps away from Park Shore Waikiki. The vibrant oceanfront resort certainly makes the most of the location; each room has a private lanai (patio/porch), some with ocean views and others leading directly to the pool.
