Turns out there is a 'week' for everything. Dutchess County Tourism has deemed there to be a 'Dutchess Hotel Week.' There are 12 hotels that are participating for 2019.

What this hotel week is is a chance for you (or for people you know) to sample some of the comforts of the Dutchess County hotels, maybe take a 'Stay-cation' or just check-out from real life to the pampered life, where you don't have to make your own bed.

The 'weeks' take place Jan 20-26, 2019 and Jan 27-Feb 3, 2019. The participating hotels have special $99 per night offers. (*General terms & conditions do apply and rates do not include taxes or gratuities).

Have you taken a "Stay-Cation" and checked into a local hotel? Is there a Hudson Valley hotel/motel that you consistently recommend to friends and family when they are coming into the area?

What do you look for in a hotel? Does it need to have a pool? Room service? Spa or even a Bar? Let us know by adding your comments to the section below.
