Rooftop Patios: A Breath of Fresh Air

Unfortunately, for most people, traveling consists of being indoors for huge chunks of time.  People sit at a secure airport and wait for their flight; they fiddle with their air vent, while squished in a airplane seat; they needn’t even leave to get food with a simple call for room service.

As you seek to savor the final weeks of summer sun there are a several Stash partner hotels that offer a way out(side) the box, and into the fresh air.
