Tired of those same old hamburgers and hot dogs? Try something different this Memorial Day weekend! #GetUpandGO and experience some of the best cuisine our unique Stayful hotel restaurants have to offer. And you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors, just minus the ants in your food.
Get outside: Central Park
The ultra-modern Chambers Hotel is home to Momofuku’s award-winning má pêche restaurant. Start your Memorial Day weekend with whiskey brioche French toast at the restaurant, then head to New York’s famous Central Park, which is literally just two blocks away. Stroll through the picturesque landscapes, take in views of the New York City skyline from Gapstow Bridge or relax in the Conservatory Garden.
Did we mention the hotel is only two blocks from the park? Which is perfect, because it means you can return to má pêche for lunch (pork buns or citrus lobster sandwiches anyone?) and dinner (try the deep fried short ribs or lamb noodles) before you fall into your plush bed.

Get outside: Presidio of San Francisco
The Mystic Hotel is owned by Master Chef Charlie Palmer and staying there is a unique, chef-driven culinary experience. The Hotel’s Burritt Room + Tavern has an inspired menu of steaks, chops and local seasonal vegetables that will make you dream of your dining experience for years to come.
Before you splurge on one (or two) of the Burritt Room’s excellent desserts, take a Lyft to the Presidio of San Francisco. Huge Redwood trees and the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge make a trip to the Presidio the perfect Memorial Day outdoor activity.

Get outside: Torrey Pines State Reserve
A.R. Valentien in the Lodge at Torrey Pines has been named as one of the Top Ten Farm to Table Restaurants by Epicurious.com. Chef Jeff Jackson is known around the country for simple preparations that allow the flavors and textures of fresh local ingredients to shine. Belgian Waffles with Honey Pecan Butter, Strawberries and Whipped Cream for breakfast will fuel you up for a long hike in the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.
With its gorgeous trails, amazing views of the coast line and beautiful greenery, the Torrey Pines State Reserve is a must-see in San Diego. Food isn’t permitted in the park, but that’s not a problem. Just remember that a Roman Style Liberty Duck Breast and confit leg with roasted plum and fennel shortbread are waiting for you back at A.R. Valentien.

Get outside: Boston Common
The modern steakhouse Mooo, in the luxurious XV Beacon Hotel, not only serves a mean Prime Dry-Aged Rib Eye that will make you cry tears of joy – it also has a full bar and award winning wine list.
Walk to the Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States (dating back to 1634). The Boston Common is part of the Freedom Trail and is rich with history and stories. No visit to the Common would be complete without a stroll through the Public Garden and a ride in one of its iconic Swan Boats.
Got inspired by BBQs in the park but still not in the mood for hot dogs? How about a classy picnic in your room at XV Beacon? You can order from the complete Mooo restaurant menu, 24 hours a day.
