Spa getaways for the city mom
Las Vegas isn't the only city with luxury hotels, spas and casinos. For a sure bet closer to home, escape to Atlantic City's upscale Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa and its boutique property, The Water Club. Room rates for Mother's Day weekend range from $149 to $469 per night.
Especially for Mom, the Borgata's Spa Toccare and the Immersion Spa at the Water Club are offering signature seasonal treatments: Spa Toccare's 3-in-1 Borgata Bliss Experience (100 minutes, $275) includes a body scrub, immersion in a hydrotherapy bath and a heavenly Swedish massage; and the Immersion Spa's Slimming Detox Ritual (105 minutes, $275) offers a detoxifying experience beginning with a bath with herbal extracts and ending with a salt scrub and body-slimming gel that help eliminate toxins and leave the skin looking and feeling firmer.
After your pampering sessions, catch up on mother-daughter bonding poolside at the Immersion's jaw-dropping indoor infinity-edge lap pool with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views of the Atlantic shore. Then, head to the Wolfgang Puck American Grille for a sumptuous Mother's Day brunch. In addition to staples like French toast and yogurt-and-granola parfait, specialty menu items include: "My Aunt Dee's Easter prosciutto pie with marinated cantaloupe"; house-smoked salmon pizza with soft scrambled eggs; and grilled ribeye steak and eggs with wild mushroom frittata and Tuscan potatoes.
To make your giddy mother-daughter getaway complete, hit the slots or surprise Mom with tickets to see one of the fabulous shows.
