31 S


owned by Frank Sinatra, is scheduled to reopen after a full refurbishment in the summer of 2015. Meanwhile, Elko, Nevada's glitzy new Mustang Monument Wild Horse Eco-Resort,

is offering

overnight safaris and accommodation in lavish teepees. Other picturesque – if not so lavish – teepees are featured in Route 66's Wigwam Motel near Rialto, California. But if you really want an authentic Native American experience you should head

for Arizona and an

overnight in a Navajo hogan or the Historic Thunderbird Lodge in the midst of the Canyon de Chelly, in the mesa-dwelling Hopi nation's Moenhopi Legacy Inn, or in The View hotel, sited in film-set Monument Valley on the Utah/Arizona border. Also

in Arizona there's

Tucson's Casino Del Sol golf resort, owned by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, or indeed the area's chic Canyon Ranch, celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. Also in the west, Phoenix and Scottsdale are known for their wealth of golf and spa resorts while Texas, Colorado and Kansas, for example, are renowned for their guest ranches.


Colorado Springs' renowned Broadmoor Resort has added to its allure with the outpost Cloud Camp located at 9,200 feet on nearby Cheyenne Mountain. Meanwhile, keen golfers head for such eastern mountain and valley resorts as Virginia's Homestead and West Virginia's Greenbrier as well as for the resort islands of South Carolina and Georgia. Other cities and states with a wealth of accommodation and attractions include

Seattle – where the newest hotel, Motif Seattle, has sweeping views of the downtown waterfront and the Olympic Mountains – San Francisco, Washington, DC and Boston. Massachusetts is also promoting the new Inn at Hastings Park, a boutique property in the charming colonial town of Lexington. If you're heading to Woodstock in Vermont, 506 On the River Inn is a charming rustic retreat. Indeed,


Chicago's new hotels include two with UK connections. London- based Soho House's six-storey Soho House Hotel and Virgin's fi rst Virgin Hotel"


England and much of the rest of the USA inns and B&Bs are ideal if you want to savour the local ambience while plantation stays in the Deep South offer an insight into that region's heritage. Some of these options are

more geared to adults or older children whereas families with younger children might prefer to

head to the numerous easy-come, easy-go motels, places with self-catering facilities such as Manhattan's Hotel Beacon or the Resident Inn in Memphis, Tennessee, or, of course, the family-focused theme park resorts in Florida, California and elsewhere.

NEW ENGLAND WITH A TOUCH OF LUXURY "Luxury boutique country inns such as the Old Harbor Inn on Cape Cod make

for a true New England experience. Located in the pretty upmarket village of Chatham, it has a handful of nicely-decorated bedrooms, breakfasts made to order and is just a short walk from the charming high street's fi ne dining restaurants and shops. Watch the fi shing boats and seals at Chatham Harbor, explore sandy, unspoilt beaches, get local tips from the friendly innkeepers and perhaps return for after- noon tea on the inn's deck. ”
