There’s nothing I love more than traveling in the wintertime. Exploring new cities that are beautifully appointed with holiday decorations, to trying new foods that any other time of the year my diet wouldn’t allow, traveling during the holidays is the perfect form of accepted indulgence. If you’re looking to get away this holiday season, consider a West Coast winter, where you can enjoy the festivities without the freezing weather! Here are three great choices from Noble House Properties located in both Seattle and California that are offering something special this holiday season.
The Edgewater Hotel, Seattle
Ok. So, you may still get a white winter at this location, but self-proclaimed as Seattle’s only luxury waterfront downtown hotel, The Edgewater Hotel is beautifully appointed and located in downtown Seattle, overlooking Elliott bay and the Olympic Mountains. Originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the Edgewater Hotel is a beloved local landmark that has welcomed everyone from The Beatles during their first world tour, to Pearl Jam, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin just to name a few. This holiday season, you can see for yourself why so many celebrities stay at The Edgewater by booking their “Holiday’s on The Edge” package. Starting at $349 a night, guests can enjoy ice skating for two at the Winterfest Ice Rink, two stiff drinks upon arrival, dinner for two at Six Seven restaurant, and a copy of David Sedaris’ wildly popular collection of essays, ‘Holiday on Ice’ which guests can read while cozying up in front of their own fireplace!

The newly renovated Kona Kai Resort & Marina is a great holiday haven for families, offering a bit of Hawaiian flare on the mainland! Located alongside the twinkling San Diego Bay, families can enjoy the most wonderful time of the year with their “Merry & Bright” package that starts at $323 a night when booking a minimum of a two night stay. Here, guests are provided with $100 resort credit, free in-room milk and cookies upon arrival and four tickets to the “Jungle Bells” Jungle Tour at the San Diego Zoo along with family sail for four aboard the Stars and Stripes Yacht!

For revelers seeking a sophisticated New Years Eve celebration, guests can end 2013 with a bang (for the buck) trip to the Riviera! We at Surf and Sunshine are fans of this gorgeous resort and for $600 per couple, groups can ‘Ring it in at Riviera’ with a Mediterranean Junior Suite on New Years Eve along with two glasses of champagne for a midnight toast, and dinner at the fantastic Circa 59 restaurant. If you party too hard, no worries, as part of the package includes a hangover cure breakfast for two at Circa 59 as well on New Years Day.
