Years ago, before we were married, Alex and I took a trip to The Standard hotel in Miami for his birthday. It was amazing—quiet and romantic, with fire pits, a spa and a hot tub under a waterfall.
(We were such babies!) Here's a deal from the Standard, if you'd like to stay...
The enormous infinity pool is as warm as a bathtub, facing Biscayne Bay, and the hotel restaurant served fresh Greek salads with tofu and fish sandwiches with spicy fries.
Bonus: The hotel offers fluffy white robes, so you can spend your weekend in a robe, swimsuit and flip flops—no need to pack much else! They also have a spa with mud baths and candlelight yoga. (FYI, no kids under 17 are allowed, so it feels very adult for a romantic getaway.)
Since falling in love with that hotel years ago, we've stayed in Standard hotels on a few special occasions. For example, we stayed in The Standard in New York on our wedding night and took a one-night staycation there a few weeks ago.
The Standard has hotels in New York, LA and Miami, and they're all beautiful. If you're craving a romantic getaway, I have fun news: Cup of Jo readers can get 20% off at any of their hotels through September 30th with the code ACUPOFJO. (You just have to book your stay online or over the phone before Thursday, July 24th.)
Which would you want to visit? (I'd highly recommend Miami—and it's quiet and lovely this time of year with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.) Thank you so much, Standard hotels!
