41 Destinations for City Dwellers

From Luxe City Hotels to Plush Parisian Pads

— April 14, 2014 — World
Consumers looking for a getaway destination that won't sacrifice modern amenities and technological accessibility are in luck, because these destinations for city dwellers will surely satisfy any would-be traveller who desires to stay centrally located.

Jetting off to a faraway destination is ideal for those who desire a temporary release from the hustle and bustle of city life, but these urban retreats are more for those who want to getaway without having to actually leave the conveniences of city living. From inner city hotels that integrate social media to those that are temporary sleeping units for on-the-go travellers, these destinations for city dwellers will surely entice anyone who desires a vacation that won't take them too far from the accessible amenities that come with urban living.
