While it hardly spurs the high level of travel that holidays like Christmas and Labor Day bring about, Cinco de Mayo often provides travelers with a rare opportunity to get away and have some fun, even if only briefly.
With countless festivals and celebrations kicking off Thursday and likely continuing through the weekend, Priceline.com has done your homework for you, pinpointing five luxury hotels in five major cities where travelers can celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style without breaking the bank.
Take a look.
The Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey
Where: Los Angeles, California
This five-star hotel is located just west of Los Angeles and sits waterfront on the scenic Marina Del Rey.
With rates as low as $379 per night, the Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey is the ideal accommodation for celebrating Cinco de Mayo in the City of Angels. Guests can cool off in the pool, unwind in the spa or work off all those margaritas at the hotel's fitness center.
There's also no shortage of dining options here, so guests won't have to venture far to grab a bite to eat or a late night cocktail.
Bellagio Hotel & Casino
Where: Las Vegas, Nevada
Sin City's Bellagio Hotel & Casino is a favorite among the world's wealthiest travelers and, ironically, the five-star experience could be yours for just $169 per night this holiday weekend. That means visitors to Las Vegas can stay three nights for just over $500.
In addition to the stellar price, the Bellagio boasts a tremendous location on the middle of the strip and is also home to Cirque du Soleil performances.
Head out for a night of celebration on the town, try your luck at the casino or sample some festive cuisine at one of the many available restaurants.
The St. Anthony, a Luxury Collection Hotel
Where: San Antonio, Texas
Located just three blocks from San Antonio's renowned Riverwalk, the St. Anthony, a Luxury Collection Hotel will place guests at the center of the action on Cinco de Mayo.
Celebrations are likely to continue through the weekend and with rooms available for just $239 per night, travelers won't have to worry about going home after just one night. That means they'll have additional time to enjoy this historic hotel's lengthy list of amenities, which includes a pool, gym, restaurant and lounge, among others.
If for some reason guests tire of the amenities at the St. Anthony, they should head over to Market Square to experience the city's Cindo de Mayo festival.
Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia
Where: Phoenix, Arizona
With the 2016 Cinco de Mayo Phoenix Festival running all weekend long, the five-star Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is a no-brainer.
Situated northeast of downtown Phoenix, here guests can reserve a one-night stay for as little as $321. Plus, they are guaranteed a room with a view since every room at the hotel features a balcony or patio. Yoga and Pilates are available at the fitness center and guests will also have access to a spa for winding down afterward.
The U.S. Grant, a Luxury Collection Hotel
Where: San Diego, California
Like the St. Anthony in San Antonio, San Diego's U.S. Grant hotel is a Luxury Collection property, offering unrivaled character and charm.
But the hotel's location and price are poised to win over travelers as well. Located near the city's historic Gaslamp District, the hotel is just a short Trolley ride from Mission Village in Old Town, where travelers and locals alike will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo during the annual Fiesta Old Town.
What's more, a holiday stay at this historic five-star property will only cost guests an affordable $319.
Travelers looking to save even more on a five-star stay in a popular destination can book an Express Deal through Priceline.com. Select your travel dates, neighborhood and amenities and receive a discount of up to 60 percent on a hotel that will be revealed after booking.
