For many of us, when we think of traveling abroad we think of Europe, and what better place to celebrate getting back to what we love than by visiting the City of Love? Surround yourself with luxe details at Castille Paris, located in a beautifully restored 18th-century building in the heart of the first arrondissement. Use your $100 experience credit1 toward a meal at the award-winning L’Assaggio, run by Michelin-starred chef Ugo Alciati.

1Experience Credit varies by property.

Roomers Munich, Autograph Collection in Germany is a destination in itself with its playful modern decor combining colorful flourishes with copper and brass accents. Enjoy a room upgrade at check-in, when available2, and explore the historic surroundings. Don’t miss a private tour of the incredible fairytale-like castle of Neuschwanstein, arranged by the hotel.

2Certain room categories are not eligible for upgrade.

The charming coastal haven of Borgo Egnazia in Brindisi, southern Italy, is as alluring as it is relaxing. Fortunately, there’s guaranteed 4pm check-out to maximize your time. Breathe in the fresh air rolling off the Adriatic Sea as you stroll through ancient olive groves of the Itria Valley. This hotel is made from local stone and may resemble an ancient citadel, but it has all the modern comforts you’ll desire for your seaside escape.

Settle into Santorini at Canaves Epitome. The property is perched on the northwestern tip of the Greek island and makes for a stunning place to relax and unwind.
