There are times when you get stuck in an airport due to inclement weather or to some disturbance at your destination. When bad luck hounds your plans, these airport hotels might change your perception of your situation.
Melt the Stress Away
Of course it gets stressful once you’re landlocked inside an airport when you were just expecting to be done with the business of getting to where you’re going. But when you’re at the Hong Kong International, there’s no need to worry if you get billeted at the Regal Airport Hotel. Watch the other planes zip by while floating on a pool. You can somebody else rub your back at one of Om Spa’s outdoor cabanas. If your feet are feeling a little overused, try the foot massage and perhaps some manicure and pedicure. If there’s some place where you’d be in a matter of time, just tell the staff and they’ll accommodate the treatments that suit your needs.
One of the best ways to spend the first night of your vacation is to sip your favorite drink while enjoying the best side of the city or island you’re visiting. Below is a list of the top five bars with a view. Sit back and relax because you know you deserve it.
A Pie de Ma, Italy
What’s a trip to Italy without the best vantage point to the Riviera? At the A Pie d Ma, they can give you that and more. This is also the best bar to go to if you’re in the mood for some jazz music and some Negroni cocktail. Just in case you don’t know, this is a fine mix of gin, vermouth, Campari and some bitters.
There is quite nothing like drinking at a posh environment which puts the sprawl city right under your feet. Bars built at the topmost level of their hotels provide this particular experience. However, not all bars are built equal. There will be those who will exceed the others and deserve the heights wherein they were placed. If you want to know what the best rooftop bars are, this list will enumerate them.
ADC, Washington, D.C.
People wanting a little more exclusivity in their lounging areas need to get membership with the ADC (Above D.C.) to get into the mix with politicians and co-eds. Come and enjoy their fireplaces or feed yourself with their wontons filled with foie gras delivered by the people from Todd English’s Cha.
Sunset Beach, Scottsdale
Nightlife as spectacular as the view?
The incredible skiing and winter sports might be the main draw of Aspen, Colorado, but the nightlife of Aspen won’t disappoint.
The resorts in Aspen usually have lounges, clubs, or bars too, so if a vibrant nighttime scene is important to you, look for a hotel with a reputable bar while making reservations. You can usually visit the club at any hotel, regardless of whether you actually stay there. Check out the Aspen Magazine’s Traveler’s Guide to find a list of Aspen nightclubs and bars, and details about what to expect at each.
If you prefer cultural nightlife, check out the Crystal Palace comedy club. The often political-based satire will have you in stitches, and the delicious food will ensure an empty stomach isn’t distracting you from the entertainment. It’s a popular spot, though, so ensure you make reservations ahead of time.
