It may not be the biggest travel holiday of the year—that’s in November—but plenty of hotels are still rolling out warm welcomes for dads with all sorts of special offers. Here are seven that caught our attention.
This coastal property in Kennebunkport is offering a 15 percent discount for two-night stays, a round of golf, a dinner for two, and breakfast daily in what it’s calling the Empty Nester Father’s Day package, starting at $653 for the trip.
This iconic Coral Gables resort has launched a “Fore Your Improvement” package that includes three hours of pro instruction, video swing analysis, and unlimited play on the Donald Ross Classic course. And since golf isn’t limited to dads, the package, which starts at $569 a night including breakfast, is open to anyone.
This private jet company typically costs more than the average dad might want to pay for a flight. But a new batch of last-minute “SuiteDeals,” with flights from $536 each way, make the idea a bit more realistic. Dad will have to be flexible—the trade-off on price means routes are predetermined—but if his travel plans match up with JetSuite’s, it’s a fun option.
The Marriott brand is launching a social media contest for fathers in the run-up to June 14. Dads (or anyone) can share their favorite Father’s Day memory on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #RIAdoresDads for a chance to win airfare, two hotel nights, and tickets to an upcoming PGA Golf Tournament—as well as a one-hour lesson with pro Michael Putnam and new clubs from Cleveland Golf. Residence Inn will announce the winner “on or about June 17.”
This all-suite property in Lake Placid, New York has just announced a man-friendly menu that range from sports massage to exfoliating treatments. Not a special, per se, but it’s another reason for dads doing outdoorsy stuff in the Adirondacks to pick Whiteface Lodge.
If you really owe dad a big gift, this blowout package from Kimpton includes a night in a suite, monogrammed robes, a magnum of Champagne, breakfast in bed, fancy shave kits, a discounted spa treatment, and a $100 Uber credit for rolling around town. It’s only available this Father’s Day weekend, from $1,828 a night.
If travel for Father’s Day isn’t an option, the home-sharing site smartly points out that July is National Fishing Month—and suggests a few excellent properties from California to Utah (pictured) to Tennessee where you might take dad for a make-up trip.
