INSIGHT: Where to travel nowSPOTLIGHT ON: An all-time favorite
With its tempting tropical temps, Hawaii beckons to you in the cooler months. There's a catch, of course: You pay extra for that winter warmth, and you have to share paradise with the masses. We're long-time fans of Hawaii, and in our opinion, now is an ideal time to enjoy its islands--the weather is delightful, the crowds have thinned, and there are deals to be had!
For help in choosing an island or islands for your Hawaiian experience, simply get in touch with a Travel Specialist in Hideaways Travel Services (toll-free: 800-843-4433); club members are invited to get the inside scoop through these highlights from our extensive online article archives:
An "Aloha" Experience Hawaii, Deja Vu Hawaiian Villa Living
Spotlight On: The AthenaeumThe Athenaeum in London is one of our favorite city-central-but-sane escapes. It's a perennial winner with members, too, receiving a perfect rating of "5" on Hideaways.com.
Talk about seeing London like a local! You can have your very own "flat" at The Athenaeum, which has luxurious Mayfair apartments available to rent (you also can stay in a beautiful guest room at the main hotel). Then there's the close-to-everything location, the family-friendly atmosphere--complete with a kid's concierge and hotel nannies--and a range of unique attractions, from its exterior "Living Wall" created from dozens of plant species to the 270 whiskies served in its Whisky Bar.
Last but not least, one of The Athenaeum's best qualities is its congenial and often witty staff (oh, those Brits!). The people here, like the helpful and entertaining concierge staff, will really make your day with hefty doses of good cheer and a real zest for going out of their way to make sure you have your best possible stay. Club members are invited to learn more--including how one concierge got rid of a guest's indiscretion--through these online article archives:

Great Bag = Great Trip
When you pack your best belongings in a high-quality piece of luggage (as opposed to, say, your old gym bag), you're setting the tone for your entire trip.
Great news--you don't have to pay a premium for a premium bag!
After catching wind of eBags, everyone in our office is now sporting nicer luggage (and nicer handbags, messenger bags, and backpacks, too). Of course, we can't keep a good thing to ourselves--lucky you--and in addition to our eBags recommendation, we can offer you an extra 20% off + free shipping on orders over $100 at eBags.com!
