One major travel trend that we are seeing more and more is the “Stay at One, Play at All” set up for hotels and resorts. This means that guests can choose to stay at one specific property within a hotel group, while still using the amenities, dining area, and activities at all of the properties within the collection. This sets up the perfect opportunity for travels to get the most for their money and have unforgettable experiences during their stays.
Below are several properties across the country that offer this type of stay for its guests.
