Waking up in the same bed and heading down to the same bacon, eggs and coffee getting to be a little monotonous? An overnight winter escape may be just the thing to reinvigorate and pull you out of the domicile doldrums. Indulge in an indoor pool, buffet-style breakfast, fitness room and the other luxuries of spending the night at an inn or hotel. Get the most for your money, and spend the night at one of these four hotels offering all-inclusive packages. Heading back home afterward may be hard to cope with, but that’s why return trips are possible.
