Break The Covid Groundhog Day Cycle Safely

Do you feel like you’re caught in a time loop, living Groundhog Day or even Groundhog Year? Last year, Covid-19 crashed the spring break party. This year, Covid-19 is still an uninvited guest. Yes, a full year later, there is still a pandemic between us and the beach. But that doesn’t mean we have to cancel the festivities all together. One thing we’ve hopefully learned during these “rinse and repeat” days is to take the lemons, make the lemonade, then find a friend with vodka... at a hotel... with a pool... and a spa… and a restaurant… or something like that. Seriously though, take that spring break you desperately need and deserve. Grab the kids, the dog and the sig other -  or any subset of the above -  and head to an Irving oasis. Staycations are still the best way to vacation, and Irving has the hotels... with the pools... and the spas... and all the ingredients for a safe spring break that rocks!   




Four Seasons: The Hotel… With the Pools… And the Spa… And Activities Galore



What would you do if you really were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same? I don’t know about you, but I would pray that I was stuck at the Four Seasons Resort in Las Colinas instead of a B&B in Punxsutawney.



With all the activities they’ve got planned, there’s no way every day could be the same. The resort has a special calendar chock full of events that allows you to effortlessly entertain and stimulate your children through sports camp, outdoor movie nights and more – all while squeezing in some relaxing adults-only time too.




Where else can you send your kids to a Little Chef's Cooking Class?


Little Chefs

Relax at the oasis-style pool, pamper yourself at the Well & Being Spa, enjoy live music by a rustic fireplace on the Agave Pool and Bar’s patio. Have breakfast in bed or dine in luxury at the hotel’s signature restaurant, LAW. Learn more about the property and it’s wonderful amenities and take advantage of any one of these special offers to plan the perfect stay.

Spring Break Fun Predicted for March at the NYLO



The NYLO Las Colinas Hotel is a unique gem with many of the same activities and amenities as the Texican Court, but instead of an old-spaghetti Western vibe, you’ll find the whimsy feel of a chic boutique hotel and loft style guest rooms - exposed brick, polished concrete, and industrial windows.




Fun and games are front and center at this trendy spot, along with pool time and R & R with a fancy feel. 



Corn-hole, Jenga, giant Connect 4 or Foosball, anyone? 


If you prefer hibernating in your room, they are super spacious and comfy.



Just ask this pampered pup! 



However you choose to spend your time at the NYLO, one thing’s for certain: you'll find all the ambiance, scenery, service, amenities and activities to make sure you and yours get a break from Groundhog Day 2020/21.
