Stumped on holiday gift ideas? Here at ShermansTravel, we’re always focused on travel: taking trips, planning trips, and finding the best deals for the next trip. So our vote, of course, for those of you unsure what you get your nearest and dearest, is to treat them to a vacation this holiday season. Below are a few outstanding travel deals that are sure to make anyone excited to get away, and affordable enough that you won’t be regretting the purchase come your January credit card bill.
The approach of the holiday season brings to mind lots of cozy things: hot chocolate, fireplaces, watching the snow fall as evergreen-scented candles fill the air. But for the thousands of people in the Northeast displaced or severely affected by Hurricane Sandy, the holiday season threatens to be much less comfortable than usual. As you think of where you might travel this holiday season, we urge you to consider offers that not only cost you less but also give back to those who have recently lost so much.
You’ve heard Black Friday horror stories: the fist-fights, the pepper-spraying, the lines outside of Best Buy at two in the morning. If a sleepless night or black eye isn’t the way you like to get your shopping done, consider Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving devoted to thousands of online shopping deals. Over the past few years, hotels have caught on to the Cyber Monday trend and started promoting their own flash sales. The steep discounts below are only offered when booked on Monday, November 26, so pick your favorite destination, bookmark this post, and mark your calendars.

What can hotels do to make your stay more comfortable? That’s what Affinia Hotels hopes to learn with the launch of new nightly “comfort hours.” Each day, guests will have a chance to give feedback to hotel staff on how their stay could be improved. They’ll also be able to try out items from the “comfort cart,” including loaner video game systems (like Xbox Kinect), assorted pillows, and a hangover kit, which includes an eye mask, Advil, and a bottle of water. Some evenings, drinks and snacks will be served. To oversee these efforts, Affinia has appointed Christina Denihan (pictured) as the Chief Comfort Officer. Earlier this year, a body language expert trained all of Affinia’s staff to recognize guests’ non-verbal cues, so they know when to chat up a guest and when to back away, as well as ensure that a guest’s first impression is a good once. Affinia has seven hotels in New York City, D.C., and Chicago. www.affinia.com
