ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - Summer vacations get plenty of play, but winter escapes are just as tempting. Whether one lives in the Sun Belt or snowier climes, the wintry holiday charm of the Washington D.C. area is hard to resist. But resistance is no longer necessary thanks to the Key Bridge Marriott, Crystal Gateway Marriott, and Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotels' latest hotel offer, Winter Getaway in Arlington, Virginia, which makes a quintessential holiday escape more accessible than ever.
The Winter Getaway package extends a savings of up to 33 percent for stays lasting three nights or longer. Of course, between the luxe accommodations and extensive area attractions, no one will be in a hurry to put an end to the holiday merriment.
As one of the most well-appointed hotels near Georgetown University, the Key Bridge Marriott welcomes guests into the heart of the D.C. area, while the Crystal Gateway Marriott and Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel are both situated conveniently in Arlington near DCA Airport.
During the holiday season, the advantages of this location are only amplified. In Dickensian Georgetown, for example, visitors can glide along the D.C. area's largest ice-skating rink (its proportions trump those of the Rockefeller Center rink in New York), check out the chic boutiques and experience one of the countless cultural events -- think wreath workshops and Swedish Christmas bazaars -- scheduled all winter long.
And that's just the beginning. Old Town Alexandria welcomes travelers to its brick-lined streets with bedecked Christmas trees and events ranging from Scottish parades to boat parades. Take a walk down the cobblestone streets and stop inside the quaint shops lining the famed King Street. Washington, D.C., meanwhile, lures guests of nearby Arlington, Virginia hotels to its multitude of sights and events. Arts enthusiasts flock to Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage for the free daily performances of music and theater, while families marvel at 500,000 LED lights on display at the National Zoo. History buffs shouldn't miss watching "A Christmas Carol" performed at Ford's Theatre, and everyone must see the nightly lighting of the National Christmas Tree and the Pageant of Peace near the White House at least once.
In fact, there's not much one can't do from these hotels near Clarendon, Virginia. And with special winter rates and a bevy of holiday experiences on hand, there's never been a better time to embrace the glory of the season.
The Winter Getaway package is available through January 15, 2014 with rates starting at $66 per night. Guests may book their winter escape by calling 1-888-737-0577 or visiting http://www.marriott.com/specials/mesOffer.mi?marrOfferId=837085&displayLink=true.
