Additionally, all Outbound Hotels will be dog-friendly and will offer a robust lineup of on-property programming and events, including complimentary campfire s’mores, morning yoga, karaoke night and live acoustic music performances.
In addition to the two recent debuts, Outbound Hotels locations are slated to open in Stowe, Vt., in mid-2024 and in California’s Yosemite National Park in the first quarter of 2025.
According to Outbound, the brand’s properties will play at an “approachable price point,” with rates starting at $150 per night.
