Vacation: a time to get away and experience something new. A time to break routine, re-new the self and experience a different environment. A chance to try new foods, new landscapes and even new decor styles in the hotel of your choice. Here are five options here in the States that are as cheerful as they are modern. To describe a place a modern can mean a variety of things. For one person, it can mean clean lines and minimal clutter; to another, a room bursting with color can feel fun and playful with a modern twist. Whatever modern means to you, these five hotels ranging in location from Portland, Oregon to Palm Springs, California represent a cross section of the diversity of happy modern options when looking for an all-American get a away this summer. Obviously this is a small selection, so feel free to add to the conversation and let us know about your favorite cheerful spot.
