Innnnnnn-troducing…

So,  your travels are taking you outside Florida because you want to check out the big city? Or you have to do some traveling on business? Or maybe Great-Aunt Betty keeps asking you why you don’t visit? We understand. Bathing in the sun with a rumrunner in your hand, listening to the tide come in, isn’t for every getaway. But fortunately, there are some amazing and unique hotels to the north of us, where you PCI fans won’t have to compromise on style! As a member of this set, we are excited to introduce to you the Independent Collection.

Capital Hill Suites

That’s right, this elegant boutique style hotel is located right in the heart of our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Walk the same steps our country’s forefathers took over 200 years ago to see all the sights. And like PCI, they’re pet-friendly, so your pup can pop into those vacation pictures, too!

The Independent

This exclusive hotel has a grand total of 24 guest rooms, fewer than any other hotel in this collection. Within walking distance, you’ll find the Convention Center, as well as Philadelphia’s renowned Avenue of the Arts. Looking to stay fit on your trip? Like PCI, this hotel offers its guests complimentary gym access!

Minnewaska Lodge

If you’re feeling outdoorsy, this rustic yet modern destination in Upstate New York is for you! Get away from it all and enjoy the change in seasons more than you ever will in Florida (we still have beaches, OK?). Hike, bike, or climb the mountains, and when you’re ready for a break and some warmth, relax in from of their Vermont Castings stove.

Nu Hotel

Looking for style, eco-friendliness, free WiFi, select rooms with hammocks, and a hip bar? Well, PCI, of course! But, wait, we’re not strictly talking about ourselves today. Also offering these amenities, is Nu Hotel in Brooklyn, NY. Explore the four unique Brooklyn neighborhoods that surround this artist’s haven on Nu bikes, provided free of charge.

Duane Street

This upscale and intimate hotel offers quiet charm, despite being in one of the largest cities in the world, the city that never sleeps.  Gaining international recognition from the film festival this Manhattan, NY neighborhood lends its name to, TriBeCa boasts world-class restaurants, shopping, and galleries. Truly for the discerning traveler, luxuriate in in-room spa services, 24-hour concierge service, and pastry-influenced signature cocktails.

Are Your Bags Packed Yet?

Yup, the Independent collection has something for everyone. If you can’t make it to your desired destination just yet (we know there’s that pesky thing called “work”), take a little online vacay by visiting your favorites’ Facebook and Twitter pages. You’ll get all the up-to-date happenings, exclusive specials, and new photos posted regularly, to keep you in on the action. Now, are your bags packed?
