People often do things in hotels that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley and Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-night stay at La Posada Lodge and Casitas (a $99 value) and $30 worth of New Latin American fare and drinks at Miguel's at La Posada (a $123.50 total value).
La Posada Lodge and Casitas is a cozy, southwestern boutique hotel tucked in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. With its adobe architecture and rustic setting, this alluring hotel hints at the area's cultural history. Don a favorite crown and receive royal visitors while staying in a room outfitted with a standard king or two queen beds as well as handmade furniture and unique artwork. The deluxe rooms overlook heart-stirring mountain views and include comprehensive modern amenities, letting visitors make a phone call while ironing some freshly brewed coffee into their swimming trunks. A relaxing night in the pet-friendly room ($25 extra) ends with a complimentary morning meal the following day.
Visitors also enjoy $30 worth of delectable eats at the attached eatery Miguel's at La Posada, where the chef dishes out a menu packed with luscious, sophisticated renditions of classic Latin American recipes. Stretch ravenous stomachs with an appetizer, such as the crispy fried calamari ($8) or the ceviche latino ($9), before taking advantage of the body's newfound elasticity with the seafood- and cheese-infused chili relleno ($14) or the pollo a la brasa ($14).
