The final weeks are summer are best spent outside—particularly in the backyards of some of T+L favorite hotels, from the Wyoming’s Rusty Parrot Lodge, in Jackson Hole, to Hotel Madeline Telluride, a resort we love for its high-altitude massages and it’s easy access to hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails—all more than 8,000 feet above sea level. Is preppy New England more your style? Consider a stay at Boston’s XV Beacon, ranked No. 3 Small City Hotel in this year’s World’s Best Awards, where you can unwind before exploring the rugged landscape of Boston’s North Shore.

Rusty Parrot Lodge - up to 35% off
Jackson's ski resorts hog the spotlight, but you don't have to sleep slope-side. If you love the après-ski experience, or if you're traveling in any season beside winter, the plush, western-style Rusty Parrot is your best choice. An easy stroll from Jackson's restaurants, shops, and galleries, the family-run, 31-room hotel delivers top service without an ounce of pretension. Rooms are short on cowboy kitsch and long on creature comforts (L'Occitane bath products, incredibly comfortable mattresses), plus there are the requisite high-tech touches (flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi). The small Body Sage spa offers a wide range of treatments, from a four-hands massage to a lemon coffee blossom scrub. The staff is friendly, informal, and very knowledgeable about the area's wealth of activities—horseback riding, fly-fishing, and more. (Sale ends in 5 days.)
Hotel Madeline Telluride - up to 34% off
This chic property in the heart of Telluride's Mountain Village upped the luxury factor in Colorado when it opened in 2009. Though its 100 rooms and suites—set just steps from the Number 4 ski lift and the gondola into town—were built with local stone and timber, they're hardly rustic; each has a giant marble bath with separate soaking tub and shower, plush beds swaddled in Pratesi linens, and furnishings in burnished wood and tobacco-colored leather. Every guest is assigned a personal assistant, who can arrange everything from ski rentals to dinner reservations and childcare services. Even furry friends get special attention, such as doggie beds and summer pupcicles at check-in. (Sale ends in 5 days.)
XV Beacon - up to 35% off
One of Boston's first modern design hotels when it opened in Beacon Hill in 1999, the surprisingly homey 60-room XV (call it "Fifteen") has stylish, bold interiors that contrast nicely with the 1903 Beaux-Arts building. A svelte scheme of dark wood, brushed steel, and cream-colored fabrics prevails, but it's punctuated by bold abstract paintings and vintage touches like a cage elevator, marble busts, and canopy beds in every guest room. The rooms are spacious—some as large as 900 square feet—and all have gas fireplaces and mini-bars that might tempt you to snuggle in on a cold night. Venturing out? Take the complimentary car service around town. (Sale ends in 4 days.)
