We couldn’t think of a better place to begin a coast to coast adventure than Portland, ME. A little known fact is that the state has more miles of coastline than California and over 4,000 islands off its coast. We’d definitely want to explore the Old Port District, with its reputation for notable architecture and nightlife.

Where to stay: AC Hotel Portland, Waterfront. With a convenient location, this hotel offers the urban vibes are seeking, while still allowing visitors to breathe in the history of marine life. The AC Hotel brand is perfect for the design-conscious traveler. This location does not disappoint!

Vast skies, friendly faces, and an eclectic city.

Chicago, IL
Our next city stop would be none other than Chicago. We’ve always wanted to touch down in the windy city and summertime may be the perfect time to explore the Midwest.

Where to stay: The Blackstone, Autograph Collection. This iconic hotel is in the heart of downtown, but beyond the central location, the best part of the stay would be waking to the most amazing views. The hotel features breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline, Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and Museum Campus. The Autograph Collection is a unique group of boutique hotels focused on design and luxury. It definitely shows in Chicago!

Seeking some time with nature in the Rockies.

Vail, CO
At this point in the road trip, we recommend exploring more countryside and leaving the cities behind. While heading out west, there are plenty of beautiful landscapes, but Vail stands alone in its beauty, as the small city aligns with the Rocky Mountains. Even in the summertime!

Where to stay: Marriotts’ Streamside Evergreen. Marriott’s Vacation Club offers timeshare ownership opportunities in over 10,000 vacation destinations. Choose from luxury resorts, Marriott-branded hotels and villas, and thousands of affiliated resorts. The distinctive Streamside Evergreen resort offers spacious rooms, breathtaking views, and all the cozy feels you’d expect from the majestic mountainside.

Landscapes like you’ve never seen!

Moab, UT
The Southwest of the United States boasts some of the most expansive and gorgeous landscapes in the country. While in Moab, plan to explore at least two national parks: Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park. Fortunately, we found the perfect place that offers convenience and comfort, only one mile from the entrance of the Arches.

Where to stay: SpringHill Suites Moab. We weren’t familiar with the SpringHill Suites brand of Marriott International until researching this trip but the hotel looks to be bright, spacious and full of small details that add comfort, especially the pool. When in Moab, you must go!

Everybody arrives with a dream.

Los Angeles, CA
After the long journey to the California coast, head straight to Hollywood to treat yourself! Right in the center of town, you’ll be able to hit all the sights: The Walk of Fame, Musso & Frank’s, the Capital Records building, and of course, the Hollywood sign. All of these iconic spots are just a step outside our door at the W Hotel.

Where to stay: W Hollywood. Located on Hollywood Boulevard, in the center of it all, this locale offers easy access to Downtown and the East and West sides of Los Angeles. The hotel has vibrant outdoor spaces and comfy rooms that offer a place to unwind from the pulse of the city.
