Long, dark nights, and cold temperatures can make for a dreary January. But the surefire cure for keeping those blues away is to book a winter getaway at a Club Quarters Hotel. Lift your spirits and embrace the season with a stay in one of our eight destinations.
Bundle up and explore Boston’s quaint historic streets, go ice skating on the Boston Common Frog Pond, or warm up with a bowl of wicked good New England clam chowder during a winter jaunt. The city’s many museums including the Boston Tea Party & Ships Museum and its abundance of historical sites provide plenty of spots to take shelter from the blustery weather, or experience cozy pub culture and grab a pint at the Samuel Adams Brewery.
Situated in the middle of downtown, our Club Quarters Hotel in Boston is close to the waterfront, which boasts a wintertime village, called SNOWPORT, that features a 3,000-square-foot ice rink, iceless curling, pop-up bars, and dining options. The hotel is also a stone’s throw from Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston Common, and the Freedom Trail—making it a perfect starting point for discovery.
Located along Lake Michigan, Chicago transforms into a winter wonderland filled with fun, family-friendly activities. Take a spin around Millennium Park’s ice skating rink, situated near the city’s iconic Cloud Gate sculpture, commonly known as “The Bean.” Or fly down the Sledding Hill at Soldier Field, a 33-foot-tall hill with a slope that measures 220 feet. And don’t worry, even if it doesn’t snow, the city pumps out the fake stuff to keep the good times rolling.
Both Club Quarters Hotels in Chicago are conveniently located downtown, near popular attractions like Grant Park, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Willis Tower, so you have a handy spot to kick off your snow boots.
If you’re looking to escape the cold, head to Houston. Here, you’ll find milder winter temperatures combined with seasonal activities. Visit the year-round indoor rink at Galleria Houston or lace up your skates at Discovery Green’s outdoor rink, located at the base of Houston’s skyscrapers.
From our downtown Club Quarters Hotel location, you can easily walk to the Theater District, museums, and dining options, allowing you to make the most of your stay.
Be sure to cozy up with a cup of afternoon tea and some warm, crumbly scones in between sightseeing jaunts to London’s top attractions including St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Theatre District, and Big Ben. The city’s pop-up ice skating rinks including ones at the Natural History Museum and in Somerset House are also a seasonal must. Then, settle down by a roaring fire at a local pub with mulled wine for a relaxing wintertime respite.
Spread along the River Thames, our four Club Quarters hotels—London City, Covent Garden, St. Paul’s, and Trafalgar Square—are each located near popular sites and attractions, making it easy to pop back to your room to warm up.
New York City
Some cities never hibernate—even in the cold winter months. New York is one of those places. You’ll discover activities like ice skating rinks at Bryant Park and Central Park and cozy pop-ups with heated igloos dotted throughout the city to help you conquer the cold weather. Plus, after the holiday season, the crowds here tend to thin out, making it easier to check out buzzy spots.
Our three Club Quarters Hotels—Grand Central, Times Square-Midtown, and World Trade Center—are all located near popular attractions, so you can easily explore the sights and fit in a long winter’s nap.
In addition to its historical attractions like Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell Center as well as its cultural institutions such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the City of Brotherly Love is also home to a seasonal winter park, along the Delaware River waterfront, called Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest. Here, you can ice skate on the massive rink, relax in a cozy cabin, and refuel with food and drink options from local vendors.
Situated inside Center City, our Club Quarters Hotel provides a convenient location for exploring Philadelphia, including shopping at the boutiques in Rittenhouse Square and wandering through the open-air wonderland of lights and topiaries at Dilworth Park.
Although winter in San Francisco tends to be cool rather than cold, it still offers a sense of coziness that feels like a comforting hug at the start of the new year. Plus, because of its large Chinese community, the city celebrates the Lunar New Year with elaborate festivities starting in mid-January—a colorful way to brighten dreary days.
From our Club Quarters Hotel located at the center of San Francisco’s financial district, you’ll be able to easily explore the city’s neighborhoods including the Embarcadero, Union Square, Little Italy, and Chinatown, as well as the Ferry Building Marketplace.
After browsing the museums along the National Mall and visiting historical monuments like the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and the U.S. Capitol, lace up your skates at the ice rink at the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden, where you’ll be able to glide past large-scale installations.
