Fall Foliage Hotels For Allergy Sufferers

September 30, 2013 at 11:20 AM | by | ()

With a name like Harvest Inn, best bring your hanky and keep your wine glass full!

We get a bit hesitant when it comes to fall foliage season. Sure, the leaves are in full color around most of the country and the change is so pretty to witness. But we're wary of jumping on the Leaf Peeping Bandwagon.

It’s selfish really. For some of us, this means the start of allergy season when we'll begin raking up endless piles of...tissues. Not a good look. Still, we won't be leaf-peeping poopers. Instead, here's a handy guide to some lovely hotels promising awesome autumn splendor.

As a bonus, our Sniffle Meter gives you the highest pollen count you'll face there on a scale of 1-10. The highest meaning bring your Claritin!

So pack your mock-turtleneck, Keen's, and Kleenex. It's time to embrace Mother Nature's bounty!

The Golden Arrow at Lake Placid, New York is high on the allergy meter. But go anyway!

Sniffle Meter: 7
You'll be in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains at this traditional ski resort town. But during the fall months it's all about hiking and biking the miles of trails, and getting the last bit of golf in. The Golden Arrow has an awesome location overlooking Mirror Lake, and better yet have allergen-free rooms so you'll be comfy at night on dust-mite covered beds and a hepa-filtered room after a woods-filled day. Room rates begin at $119 in October.

The cool air, the brilliant leaves, the pumpkin spice lattes, the big sweaters to hide our bellies—ah, fall, how we’ve waited for you. And how we love to getaway to big cities like Chicago now, when the autumn season makes for a beautiful, sensory backdrop to our hotel shenanigans. Think it's a coincidence "The Layover's" first episode is in Chi-Town next month? We think not!

Speaking of Chicago hotels, several grabbed our attention this week, especially those hotels wooing us in with all the right moves well before the wicked cold snap of winter kicks in. Leaf peeping in Lincoln Park? Check. Hearty fall fare and ghoulish cocktails? Right on. Spooky pumpkins carved side-by-side with a chef? Sweet.

Yep, we’ve honed in on the best Chicago hotels to get your fall swagger on, so go on and get it now.
