How many times have you told your partner that you really need a night away from the kids but get stumped on the details? In addition to booking a sitter, it can get overwhelming trying to narrow down affordable ideas that you haven’t already done before or weekends away that are fun enough to make all of the prep work worth it. Well, last month my husband and I took a much needed break from all of our Christmas obligations and escaped to the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort to relax, recharge and reconnect. We both agreed that it was the best staycation we had together in years, due in part to the ease of planning and the resort’s focus on relaxation and fun. Have I peeked your interest? Then here’s What to Expect from a Marriott Resort Lincolnshire Staycation:
I received a staycation at the Marriott Resort Lincolnshire free of charge. All opinions are my own.
As much as I love hotel stays in the city, they can be stressful. From city traffic to finding a parking spot and trying to get the Internet to work in your room, it can give you a headache all before your staycation even starts. But when you choose the Marriott Resort Lincolnshire for your staycation, everything is convenient and easy.
It took us only five minutes to check in on a Friday night during the busy holiday season and I’m pretty sure we were in our bath robes toasting our weekend away together before our kids even noticed that we were gone. With so many unique onsite amenities, there is no need to leave the resort (health club, pool, spa, theatre, restaurants, cafes, bars) which makes any winter staycation at the Marriott Resort Lincolnshire that much cozier.
The Marriott Resort Lincolnshire has recently undergone a $25 million redesign that you can notice right when you walk into the hotel lobby, as well as when you enter your own modern and updated hotel room.
We stayed in one of the new deluxe guestrooms and I was shocked by how spacious it was. In addition to a large (and oh so comfy) bed, there was a large sectional couch for reading or watching television, a dining table and bar for enjoying room service and other resort treats, and a large bathroom. Needless to say, our overnight stay was one of the best nights of sleep we have had since having kids.
When we had our Marriott Resort Lincolnshire staycation, we were able to sample spa services, a delicious meal at Three Embers restaurant, and catch a show at the Marriott Theatre. Each and every experience exceeded our expectations. It was the high quality service that we come to expect from big city environments but in a much more serene environment of 175 stunning acres. I was consistently impressed with the attention to detail, from the luxurious pillows in our room to the delicious dishes at the resort restaurants.
The Spa at Lincolnshire provides a wide variety of different, customized services that will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed by the time your service is through. My favorite part about my Swedish massage was that it was perfectly tailored to my needs in a serene setting that helped all my stress melt away. Whether you are looking for nail treatments or a personalized facial, they have you covered thanks to their spa services and packages.
This popular restaurant isn’t your typical steak house or seafood restaurant. Instead, the culinary team at Three Embers follows the farm to table philosophy to provide diners with an innovative take on popular Midwestern dinners.
All of the dishes are packed full of freshness and flavor, from the warm bread and honey butter (made with honey produced by the Marriott Lincolnshire resort bees) to the seasonal dishes such as soups, salads, meats, pastas, and my personal favorite, the wood-grilled angler fish.
Be sure to try out a signature drink and enjoy it outside on the spacious heated patio if the weather allows. Even if you don’t stay overnight at the resort, Three Embers is a phenomenal choice for a delicious meal for a date night (or even a girls’ night out). If attending a show at the theatre, be sure to allow enough time before or after the show to enjoy your meal. It’s so good that you most definitely don’t want to be rushed.
The Marriott Theatre
The Marriott Theatre has received a record-breaking 500 Joseph Jefferson Award nominations and it’s no wonder. The theatre puts on stupendous shows for theatre goers of all ages. You will find Broadway shows, musicals, classic American theatre, and even children’s performances abound at the Marriott Theatre.
We saw “Holiday Inn” (pretty funny that it was at a Marriott, don’t you think?) and enjoyed the seasonal performance’s story and songs. From January through March you can catch “Million Dollar Quartet” and my husband and I can’t wait to sing along to “Footloose” from April to June.
