Soak up more than the sun on the North Shore’s only resort marina at Danfords Hotel. The fireplace suite overlooking Port Jefferson Harbor is a retreat in itself, but water-view balconies alone won’t relieve those knots between your shoulders. The on-site spa will, and luckily for you, they’ve got a set of hands that know just how to ride the pleasure-pain line so you leave feeling relieved yet relaxed. You’ll float so comfortably, you might feel more at home sleeping in a marina slip instead of your suite.

Let Long Island Marriott help you redefine a spa trip. A concierge-level king suite with a marble bathroom is all you need to indulge in peace and quiet.

No, you’ll strut your style on the Eisenhower Park Golf Courses, where your definition of pampering equals putting for dough.
