With only 3 days remaining until the busiest shopping day of the year, many American’s are gearing up for another holiday season filled with family, the spirit of giving, and the time-honored traditions that make the holidays unique and special for everyone. There are football bowl games, winter break from school, and if we’ve been good this past year, maybe a special gift bearing our name.
This season does come with its share of challenges, too. It can bring stress and anxiety to many, as a seemingly endless string of office parties, shopping lists, and decorating and entertaining chores take their toll on all of us. I can’t offer much help with your company’s office party, but I do have a great suggestion for easing your shopping burden: Redmond Town Center.
Last year my family and I stumbled onto what is for us now a new holiday tradition. A power outage the first week in December lead to us packing our bags, loading up the girls, and taking a short drive to the Marriott hotel at Redmond Town Center. We checked in for two nights, with nothing else planned than to get a little Christmas shopping done while we waited out the power problem back home.
It was the most Enjoyable yime of the season, without question. Rather than fighting traffic at Bellevue Square, or worse, trying to find parking in downtown Seattle, we slept in late and walked to the fantastic stores and shops just outside the front doors of the hotel. When we got tired of shopping, we had lunch at one of the many area restaurants. We went out to a movie together, enjoyed a quiet dinner, and slept in late once again. The following morning the girls and I checked off the last few items on our shopping list while my wife relaxed with a massage and manicure/pedicure.
We left Redmond Town Center with all of our Christmas shopping done (and the presents wrapped, no less), feeling relaxed and ready for whatever the holiday season might bring.
Now is the perfect time to make your hotel reservations for your holiday shopping trip to Redmond. While the Marriott is the most central hotel to Redmond Town Center, both the Redmond Inn and Silver Cloud Inn offer local shuttle service for their guests. You can shop, dine, explore, and get a ride back to your room without the headache of driving or looking for parking.
Have a Happy Holiday Season!
