Paige offers to plan the annual holiday party at her parent's hotel in the Rockies, the Coyote Creek Inn, which will surely help her score a promotion at the upscale event planning company she works for. She decides on a "Christmas around the world" theme, to showcase the universal magic of the season through the diverse Christmas traditions of the Inn's guests. Dylan, a charismatic real estate developer and single father, is visiting Coyote Creek for the holidays with his son. What Paige doesn't know is that her parents are planning to sell the Inn and that the potential buyer is her new acquaintance Dylan. The fate of the Inn and Paige's relationships are both left for the magic of the holiday season to decide.

Built in 1845 by Jared Coffin (one of the most successful ship owners during the island’s whaling days) as a home for his family, this building — now an inn — is said to be haunted by Coffin himself. He is rumored to appear in room 223, and guests of room 609 have also claimed to see a ghost of a little girl.

The story of the “Blue Lady” precedes even the Story Inn’s current owner. Accounts of seeing the ghost in the former Garden Room (now the Blue Room) have been written in guest books for years, noting that if the room’s blue light is turned on, a woman will appear with hypnotic blue eyes. If you smell cherry tobacco, she’s already come and gone.

The minibars in midrange hotels likely have a couple of cans of soda, domestic beer and plastic bottled water. Yawn. Minibars in luxury hotels pull out all the stops with full-size wine and liquor bottles, locally made granola and candy, and kits for a romantic night, plus gorgeous crystal glasses for a sophisticated touch — like at the stunning Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York. Follow their lead. No matter if you’re sipping a whiskey Old-Fashioned or hydrating with tap water, using a crystal glass will have you feeling like you’re drinking in a classy hotel bar. Available on Amazon, the Marquis by Waterford Markham Double Old Fashioned Glasses ($41.79, set of four, amazon.com) is a chance to own famed Waterford crystal at a value price.

The centerpiece and most important furnishing in any hotel room is the bed, and the foundation of that is the mattress. If you don’t have a comfortable mattress that finds the perfect balance between firmness and softness, chances are you won’t be getting a restful night’s sleep. Given that mattresses last for several years, they’re worth the investment. Although Westin has their signature Heavenly Beds and Hilton uses Serta mattresses, we’re hard-pressed to find a mattress better than the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt by Tempur-Pedic ($4,499, amazon.com). The luxurious Hotel on Rivington also uses Tempur-Pedic brand mattresses, and this model has multiple layers with comfort and cooling ability in mind, plus a memory-foam mattress that adapts to your body shape.
