New Mexico is home to all sorts of outdoor adventures, including hot air ballooning. As a nod to the region’s international balloon festival, this Four Seasons Resort offers all guests a special hot air balloon-inspired treat upon arrival.
The welcome treat includes all the local goodies: spiced nuts, Santa Fe beer, smoked tomato jam (made in-house), Albuquerque Gouda cheese and a chocolate-covered jalapeno. And they don’t stop there. After you’ve settled into your casita, a fireside butler will treat you to turndown service while you’re at dinner.
And when you reappear in your room after your meal, your Kiva Fireplace will magically be lit, and you’ll also find a Make Your Own S’mores Kit delivery.

This Colorado hotel is nestled at the base of Vail Mountain and is located on Gore Creek. Guests at the creek-side mountain retreat will spy a Moët & Chandon Champagne vending machine in the lobby upon arrival. Talk about extra.
Although the vending machine doesn’t dispense free champagne, the hotel does offer a complimentary champagne sabering and Après everyday at 4 pm. You will find warm cookies and a build-your-own hot chocolate station. And then the actual sabering takes place at half past four.
