Hi All!

My mom won tickets for a two days and two nights to any marriott hotel in the United States. Now we are looking for a destination. Where should we go?

I'd say the best place to go for 2 days and 2 nights would be Las Vegas. It's a total blast! Another place I can think of is New York City.

Hi . .depends what you are after, since each city in the US is so very different.

I love Boston for its food, bars, culture, easy to walk round and history plus it has some stunning coastal countryside within easy access.

Then San Francisco offers similar things but also has the Golden Gate Bridge, alcatraz and those hills! You could also get out to places such as Yosemite, Lake Tahoe or the Napa Valley, well worth it.

New York is definitely a city which never sleeps, and the shops are just amazing.

Pittsburgh would not be on everyones list, but has much to offer in the way of the arts, museums, food, sport and no sales tax on clothes!

Well that is only 4 and there are so many more options. Suggest you look at flights and go for the best deal . .

That would depend on what kind of vacation you are looking for. You can have wild, crazy cities like N.Y. or Las Vegas or more laid back cities like Seattle or San Fran. Which are big, but still close to some outdoorsy places. Or you could go for the wilderness areas like N. Idaho or Alaska. I think Alaska in the summer time would be quite a site to see, but not for only two days. What a tease that would be. I guess what I'm getting at is that theres more to America than its sleep deprived megalopoli, hope you find what you're looking for!

The Marriott City Center in Denver is very nice, especially if you can get a room facing West. That way when you wake up in the morning you can look out and see the sun shining on the face of the rocky mountains. See if you can get concierge level acces, because they have the best food of any concerige level lounge I have been to in North America.

I love Denver the city. If you like outdoor activities and pretty geography, it's a great place. Breckenridge is only 1 1/2 hours away in the mountains, and a great place to walk around and feel the mountain vibe. Also check out Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs (about 2 hours south).

Within Denver Lo-Do has lots of great restaurants. Catch a game at Coor Field - it's a pretty ball-park so if you get bored you can wander around and enjoy the park even if the game is not good. And because Denver is a big city, you have lots of shopping and food and the like.

Denver, yay!
