It’s not too late to celebrate Fourth of July weekend with a luxury getaway. Here are some of our favorite hotel packages and travel deals happening around the U.S. in honor of Independence Day.
If you’re in the Austin area, Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt’s Red, White & Blues package includes two nights of accommodations, two welcome beers and a $100 food and beverage credit to use at the hotel’s rooftop bar, Geraldine’s, which is celebrating with blues music all weekend long. You’ll also have a front row seat for the H-E-B Austin Symphony Concert and fireworks display happening Sunday night from 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Rates start at $336 a night when you stay July 1–5, 2021.
New York City
This year, your biggest decision is whether you want to view the legendary Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks show from land or water—tickets for City Cruises’ four-hour premier dinner cruise range from $499 to $599 per person depending on your open bar preferences.
Those wanting to stay close to all the NYC summertime action in Times Square and Bryant Park can save 25% at the Andaz 5th Avenue, where rates start at $413 a night over the holiday weekend.
A bit farther downtown, The Standard East Village is offering holiday weekend rates from $299, including a $30 credit to use at any of its onsite restaurants when you book by August 8, 2021, and use promo code SoLush.
Celebrate Independence Day in our nation’s capital with a staycation package at The Banneker, one of D.C.’s newest Kimpton properties. With holiday weekend rates from $385 a night, the A Star Is Born package includes a complimentary room upgrade, grand opening welcome amenity and a $50 dining credit to use at onsite French bistro, Le Sel, or rooftop bar, Lady Bird.
If you’re interested in a Caribbean getaway without the hassle—as in, you don’t need to worry about having a U.S. passport or getting a Covid-19 test before you’re allowed back to the mainland United States—head to Puerto Rico, where a number of hotels are having summer sales to welcome back travelers. You’ll still need to fill out an travel declaration form through the Puerto Rico health department’s online portal, provide proof of vaccination (or negative Covid-19 test results if you’re unvaccinated) and pay attention to local health and safety protocols while you’re there, but things on the Island have largely returned to the way they were in the before times.
Save on a suite stay in the heart of San Juan when you book a stay of at least three nights at the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, whose Suite Sip of Summer special gives you daily breakfast for two, a $50 credit to use at the hotel and complimentary valet parking when you book by July 15 and stay through August 30, 2021. Rates start at $932 a night over Fourth of July weekend.
