The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year. All of the events, shopping, traveling, hosting, running all over the place — oh, and my favorite, eating — can burn a person out. This January, don't miss a chance to wind down from all of the bustle.

Visit Rhode Island is launching the first Hotel Week RI, Jan. 18–31. This new annual event offers prix fixe hotel rates of $100, $200, $300 and $400 per night at more than 20 hotels throughout the state. That reduces rates up to 40%.

While enjoying your stay, take in some of the fun winter activities New England has to offer. Get out on the ice, either in skates or an ice bumper car, at the BankNewport City Center, or take advantage of the half-priced admission at the Roger Williams Park Zoo during their Winter Wonder Days. Whatever you do, you're going to have to eat. Hotel Week RI is timed perfectly with Providence Restaurant Weeks, which offers great three-course deals at nearly 100 local restaurants.

Hotels will fill up fast. Make your reservations today. Below is a list of some of the great deals available.
