Seminole Hard Rock & Casino
This AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel is just 30 minutes from Miami and boasts 500 music-themed rooms, a deluxe spa and even a lagoon-style pool.

Be sure to unwind stretched out on the Inn’s expansive sun deck, then take a dip in the refreshing outdoor saltwater pool.
The Embassy Row Hotel
Located steps from Dupont Circle, the Embassy Row Hotel is a Washington landmark. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt, cut the ribbon at the hotel’s grand opening in 1970. Today the hotel also offers an expansive rooftop terrace—complete with swimming pool and cocktail bar—and a new in-house coffee shop and restaurant. Stop in for a weekend or just a dip in the pool for a cool escape from the bustling city.
