To immerse themselves in opulence, some revel in using diamond-studded toothbrushes, placing all 18 of their cell phones on do-not-call lists, and drinking Yoo-hoo from Henry III’s royal goblet. Experience true luxury with today's Groupon: for $179, you get a two-night stay for two at The Lodge at Sierra Blanca, located in Ruidoso (up to a $448 value).
Nestled next to docile, rolling golf greens and the defiant crags of the Sierra Blanca mountain range, The Lodge at Sierra Blanca provides a luxurious getaway against a backdrop of natural beauty and rousing local attractions. The one-bedroom and studio king suites offer hotel-goers more than 500 square feet of space to stretch one’s feet, play hopscotch, and arrange travel-sized shampoos. In addition to standard amenities such as cable TV and free high-speed Internet, suites offer both living and sleeping areas, a king-sized bed, fully equipped kitchenette, in-room fireplace, two-person whirlpool tub, and a balcony or patio. Area visitors can browse local shops or spend the day golfing, skiing, or cruising the town and its myriad local attractions. When taste buds begin to whine and bicker, offer them relief at an upscale restaurant and take advantage of the complimentary breakfast in the hotel for both mornings of your stay.
