If old-world California style with laid-back, luxury accommodations and unique activity offerings (mermaid pool aerobics, anyone?) sounds like your thing, then look no further than the iconic Hotel del Coronado, located in Southern California just off the coast of San Diego. With a spa that knows what a mom needs (their Mother’s Day offerings include Mommy & Me manicures, anti-aging facials, and a gemstone massage), and a Sunday brunch that some say is the best in the country (the gourmet bloody mary bar is adjacent to the design-your-own-donut station), the Del is the perfect escape for a solo artist or a mom with kids in tow.
If you’re flying solo … splurge on a 50-or 80-minute poolside Cabana Swedish Massage for $210 or $285.
If you’ve got kids in tow … turn the kiddos loose on a one-or three-hour excursions for the kids for a little alone time, then reconvene on the beach for a California clambake or s’more roast
