The Intercontinental, 888 Howard Street, 6th Floor—Feel like you need a whole new face after a long time spent in recirculated plane air? The spa at the Intercontinental has you covered. Make an appointment to get their truly amazing NuFace microcurrent treatment. The device is clinically proven to improve facial contour, tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Add the treatment on to a regular facial (starting at $120) for $30. You can also get the L.E.D. light therapy add-on ($30), which can improve skin texture and increase collagen production for plumper looking skin. We've seen this in action, and the results are undeniable.
The Clift Hotel, 495 Geary St, San Francisco, CA 94102; (415) 775-4700—No matter how many exercise gurus tell you its of extreme importance to maintain regular workouts while on the road, for many of us that's just not going to happen. Hitting the hotel gym, alas, will never be as fun as hitting a destination city's hottest new restaurant. But what if your workout is also a way to experience the city, and in close proximity to fabulous shopping? The Clift's Silver Skates package, starting at $217 per night, includes accommodations, access to the Union Square Holiday Ice Rink, skate rental for two, buffet breakfast, and 20% off dinner at the Velvet Room. It's available through January 20, 2014 with the code PKSLVR. We promise it won't feel like exercise.
W Hotel, 181 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94103; (415) 777-5300—Ever get to your destination and decide you hate everything you packed? Us too. Conveniently, the W has teamed up with Joie and Uber to facilitate the ultimate shopping trp for a fickle traveler. The W's Holiday Style Shopping Package comes with an awesome room, a sweet treat, a sample of Joie's Folle de Joie perfume, plus a $200 gift card per night to the Joie Fillmore boutique. Get there using a $20 credit for new Uber users, and Joie will welcome you with champagne and a personal shopping experience. Book your shopping appointment in advance with Gordon Kramer, and reserve your stay using the code LZPKG1. Rates start at $379 and the offer is good from now through January 11, 2014.
