A tight squeeze isn't always a bad thing. Take MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, for example, which is somehow wedged between the continent's largest alpine lake (Tahoe) and California's largest ski resort (Heavenly). And with this week's Escape, you'll get a one-night midweek ($48) or weekend ($83) stay for two in a Premiere Room in November, or a one-night midweek ($52) or weekend ($73) stay for two in a Premiere Room in December. You'll also get a bottle of champagne upon arrival. Sink into the signature Bleu Cloud bed (king or two queens) or the spacious Jacuzzi-style tub for two after you pop a bottle of free bubbly to toast the stunning views. You'll have a jam-packed day of play, but that doesn't mean you won't have time to cram in a fresh breakfast with a quick cup of joe at MontBleu Cafe or a delicious California Croissant (scrambled eggs, avocado, vine-ripened tomatoes, and Monterey jack cheese) from Café del Soul. You won't have to choose between hitting the slopes or the jackpot since the Heavenly ski lift is literally steps away. Gamble on the black diamonds in the morning and still make it back with plenty of time to double down on blackjack in the newly remodeled 40,000-square-foot casino while the winter sun's still up. Or if you want to save the risky business for the nighttime, slip into the blissful heated indoor laguna-style pool with gorgeous grotto finishes and a soothing waterfall—then grab a football game on the big-screen at The Zone. Believe it or not, you can still fit in fine dining with a succulent meal at Tahoe's only AAA Four Diamond Restaurant, Ciera Steak + Chophouse, and catch a show at The MontBleu Theatre (the band Bush is set to perform this season). Doing it all is never this easy—or this fun.

Go big or go home, right? Ask the neighbors to pick up your mail and go big with this week's Escape to the 13-acre, resort-style Hilton Sonoma Wine Country in Santa Rosa. Enjoy a one-night stay with a guaranteed upgrade to a Pool View Room ($105) or a Lanai Deck Room or spacious Junior Executive Suite ($119). Both come with a $25 credit to Nectar, the Hilton's on-site restaurant, and two wine tasting vouchers per guest that are valid at a variety of Sonoma County wineries. Spread your wings at every turn on the Hilton's massive property. It starts with your oversize room, complete with an HD flat-screen TV, in-room movies, and video games. From there, you'll have a view of the junior Olympic-size heated outdoor pool and whirlpool, or the seven-mile jogging track. Yes, seven miles. Once your metabolism has kicked in, head to Nectar and take in gorgeous, unrestricted views of the Santa Rosa Valley as you dine on a panoply of local and international fare, like seared sea scallops, chicken-apple sausage pappardelle, or pan-seared Kobe beef meatloaf. Of course, you'll want to get out and enjoy the wide-open space of the other Valley, too. Luckily, Sonoma is a quick jaunt from your palatial pad at the Hilton, so within minutes you can use your wine-tasting vouchers to sample world-class labels at various local wineries. You can also opt to indulge in a massage, enjoy a round of golf among the redwoods, or just relax as you take in the expansive Valley views. Go big and leave home behind with this week's Escape. You'll be glad you did.
