Perfect NH Hotels for fall getaways

By NH | 18:00

Every year we wait for summer with patience, preparing our holidays and planning the essential list of must dos: what to see, how to get to there, booking tours and tickets and where to eat. But when Summer is over and the season pass on the baton, we assume the worst and let the change in weather get the better of us.However, Fall is much more than grey skies and shorter days, it’s a season during which cultural cities are yours for the taking and during which long queues for museums are less foreboding. A period in which to admire landmarks and heritage sites without exaggerated crowds. In addition, depending on where you spend your Fall getaway, you’ll find milder weather that makes exploring the city a pleasant stroll rather than a sweltering endeavour.

But where to go? Today, we take inspiration from our portfolio of NH Hotels, positioned in the best locations in the world’s most desired destinations. So, with this in mind, let’s see where you’ll be going on your Fall getaway.

NH Plaza de Armas in Seville, Spain.

To start off, we’re heading to Seville, where our hotel, NH Plaza de Armas, is found exactly where you want to be, in the heart of it all. This city is unarguably one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, boasting unique architecture and monuments that act as a window into a time past. It also happens to be a place where soaring Summer temperatures generally keep holiday makers at bay. That’s why it’s best to visit during Fall, when the cooler temperatures arrive, and the crowds of international tourism wanes. Thanks to this you can explore the picturesque cityscape without overwhelming numbers in the streets and the museums being jam packed. The winding medieval streets, decorative palaces, the historical city centre and other elements which make this Andalusian city remarkable will seem even more marvellous. There are plenty of not-to-be-missed sights, like the largest gothic church of the world, Giralda Tower and the breathtaking Plaza de España with its moorish architecture.Then of course, there is the Alcazar of Seville, a spectacular royal palace that was registered as a World heritage site in 1987 and one now a part of pop culture, most notably in Game of Thrones. Guess what? All the major attractions are in close distance from the NH Plaza de Armas so no need to worry straying too far away from the centre of the city.

Aside from the renown hotel standards of stay, NH Plaza de Armas has an inviting terrace for those of you looking for a new perspective. Another plus is that it’s perfect for leisure and business, thanks to the 5 meeting rooms it comes equipped with and  its location near the 1992 World Exposition Center.

NH Ramblas in Barcelona, Spain.

We head back to Spain for our next recommendation and pass by the capital of Catalonia! Barcelona, where our many hotels dotted throughout its streets are ready to welcome you. It’s an energetic, cosmopolitan city, and home of one of the biggest football clubs in the world, FC Barcelona, as well as one of the most celebrated artists, Gaudi. October through to December is highly recommended as the period to enjoy the city, when the weather cools down considerably, humidity drops and generous blue skies are eager to please. You’ll have heard that Barcelona is one of the most visited destinations in the world, so you’ll be happy to know that during Fall people are getting to their normal routines. For this reason, the majority of the streets are filled by locals instead of tourists, and the city takes on a friendlier, more relaxed pace. The seaside city has numerous places to visit and you’ll need a centrally located hotel to have all at hand, which is where we step in.

NH Ramblas is the perfect place for all your needs. It’s located on one of the most famous streets in Spain, Las Ramblas, stretching 1.2km from city centre to sea front, and its idyllic location puts you within walking distance of all the top sights, such as Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral of Barcelona in the gothic quarter or the Placa de Catalunya.

NH Wien City in Vienna, Austria.

Vienna, the capital of Austria and city of music, is our next port of call. Fall sees cooler temperatures roll in, shades of green are exchanged for warming reds and oranges, and the nights becomes longer. Looking to for a touch of romance, then this is the city for you.

As well as being an idyllic time to enjoy the museums, the historic city centre, imperial palaces and concerts to satisfy your cultural pangs, the chilly atmosphere means cozy interiors and warming beverages are aplenty. Just like our hotel, NH Wien City, where you’ll feel right at home. Set on Mariahilferstrasse, Europe’s longest shopping street, its location is unbeatable. Within walking distance, you can enjoy the historic city centre with its beautiful gardens and baroque castle, attractions such as Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral), Hofburg Palace, the Vienna City´s Hall and many more, like the apartment which Mozart called home lived during his time in Vienna.

But, when sightseeing begins to take its toll and a well deserved relax is on the cards, head back to our hotel and treat yourself to some time out in our sauna and relaxation areas, the perfect way to end or start a beautiful day in Vienna.

NH Ciudad de Santiago in Santiago, Chile.

There are times when we ask ourselves, wouldn’t it be great to have a room with a view of the beautiful Andes? No? Well we often do and with great reason. That’s why we love NH Ciudad de Santiago, where the infamous mountain range is the backdrop to your holiday. Chile is located in the southern hemisphere where the seasons are reversed, thus during October and November the weather is mild, fresh shades of green greet you, and skies are clearer, meaning that the aforementioned mountain range is picture perfect.

The location of NH Ciudad de Santiago puts the main must-sees of this cosmopolitan Chilean capital within reach, whether by foot or public transport. Take a nice walk to Plaza de Armas, the historical centre surrounded by palm trees with prominent attractions such as the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Palacio de la Real Audiencia de Santiago. Certainly whilst here, tasting Chilean cuisine is a must and the restaurant of our hotel has a tasty menu of Chilean and international dishes. So, if you’re hungry but don’t feel like leaving the comfort of the hotel, we recommend the ‘charquicán’ a sort of pumpkin and potato stew. Even better, if you’re enjoying a night in your cozy room, why not make the charquicán come to you?  If you, like many of us, are looking for a Fall getaway then why not take a break in Santiago de Chile? Here’s more information about NH Ciudad de Santiago.
