Here in Texas we have two more weeks of summer!  Two more weeks to craft and cook and play and plan something to make this summer memorable!  On a budget, of course!

As you know, I have enjoyed a few staycations this summer!  One of our favorite was our stay at Embassy Suites in Downtown Houston!  The rooms were beautiful, the service was great (especially their efforts to make up for a service error earlier in the trip) and the amenities were plenty.  By the time we left we really felt like we ‘got away’ even though the hotel was only 45 minutes from home!

There is still plenty of time for you to head to your city’s Embassy Suites and get more out of summer! It takes no time to book a room, throw a bathing suit in a bag and head out with your family for a relaxing weekend to wind down Summer 2012!

And, of course, while traveling anywhere this summer – at home or away – remember these valuable tips to make your trip even more enjoyable!

Find a balance between activities and vacation!  In the effort to relax as much as possible, don’t forget to relax!  I know – at least with my girls – I want to take and do and make sure they are having fun the entire time we are on vacation.  But I have to remember that the time away is for me too!  There is nothing wrong with letting the kids color or read books while I have some much needed down time!

Stay in a Hotel with as Many Ammenities as Possible!  The previous tip being said, I really need a place to stay where the kids have things to do!  At Embassy Suites, the pool, the hot tub, the kids area at the restaurant and the park across the street (Discovery Green in Houston, TX) are all perks that can help me wear my kids out entertain my little ones without having to pay extra for a theme park or other activity!  When calling to book a hotel for a staycation, ask what is available for kids both in and out of the hotel!

At Embassy Suites this summer, you can still enjoy the perks of a great get-a-way!  They are still offering the double room suites (SO great with kids!), the delicious cook to order breakfasts and the fun and FREE Manager’s reception where mom and dad can have an adult beverage!

All of the perks save money, time and the headache of figuring out how to fit a stay at Embassy Suites into your budget!  There is a reason that Embassy Suites was named one of the“10 Best Hotel Chains for Families of 2012“!  Gather your family and head out this weekend!
