Little Pail Escape: Just a Nice, Quiet Getaway After Quarantine

I normally post bucket list events here, but I know that is not what most of us want right now. I’m in the same boat. I had a cruise planned with the family that was supposed to depart June 1. That isn’t going to happen now, but I don’t want to forego vacation altogether. I want to put on real pants and see some lovely place. Even if my cruise was not canceled, I don’t think a cruise ship is where I want to be right now. I’m just not that brave. I don’t even want to get on a plane with my severely asthmatic daughter. My solution — road trip.

The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, GA

I want to go find a beautiful, not too crowded resort and forget my recent worries about running out of toilet paper. I don’t want a remote cabin in the woods. I live in a forest. My home is a remote cabin in the woods. I want room service, a spa and sparkling pools. I want a beach, just not a super-crowded one. I know I’m not alone. I’ve been watching hotel reservation levels and things are starting to pick up.

I also know that as soon as most of the states open up, the pent-up demand for all those lovely resorts will be overwhelming and they will fill up. That’s why I booked mine today.

I also want to showcase a hotel chain that I feel has earned a place in my heart. I know that sounds a little dramatic, but hear me out. Marriott International committed to providing $10 million worth of hotel stays for healthcare workers fighting Covid-19. Marriott also makes it easy for me to book your post-quarantine trip risk-free. They will allow cancellation or date-change of your reservation up to 24 hours before you arrive. That means I can book you now, watch to see if things are opening up at your destination of choice, then push back your date or cancel right up to the last minute. By booking through me, you will not even have to spend a minute on hold trying to change, cancel, or request a refund. I will do all that for you and stay in contact with you throughout the whole process. All of this is important because, as many of you have found out the hard way recently, most trip cancellation insurance companies do not cover pandemics.

Marriott International includes 30 different hotel brands at a wide variety of price points, from Fairfield and Courtyard to The Ritz-Carlton and St. Regis. There is really something for everyone. Call me to book your risk-free getaway today!
