Independence Day may have passed, but have a US celebration of your own, with one of these dual-location suggestions from Mr and Mrs Smith combining a city stay with country or coast

City escape? You got it. West Coast road trip? Just dial for a Mustang. We’ve paired some of our favourite city hotels with a perfect country or coastal partner, so whether you fancy a two-stop trip or a standalone stay, you can get your fix of the Stateside summertime.

New York and the Hamptons

Standard High Line_NYC 1-620 Mr & Mrs Smith

The Standard High Line (above) is witty and minimalist. Its bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling views over the Hudson so you can indulge your inner exhibitionist before heading up to the rooftop terrace, right in the heart of the West Village. What’s the deal? Get 25% off if you book for a long weekend.

Sunset! And beach! At Sunset Beach! Glamorous movers and shakers looking for whitewashed private sundecks right on the ocean come to this Hamptons hang-out for casual, contemporary cool. Tack on a Shelter Island stay after a stint in the city and you’ll have the perfect all-American affair – and you can get 15% off midweek too.

Miami and the Florida Keys

Soho Beach House_Miami 5-620 Mr & Mrs SmithIn-the-know SoBe scenesters hit the Soho Beach House (above) for its retro cool atmosphere, rooftop pool and Cowshed spa. The ideal destination for Florida fun time, this light, bright, beachside retreat is the perfect pitch for pure relaxation. With an exclusive 20% off, you could save more than £46 a night.

Sidestep the kitsch of the Keys and head straight to Islamorada, home to the palm-fringed pool and serene beach-chic of Casa Morada. Hop into a hammock, enjoy the balmy tropical breeze and generally relax your socks off at this adults-only pocket of paradise, with 15% off three-night stays.

Washington DC and Chesapeake Bay

The Inn at Perry Cabin_Chesapeake Bay 2-620 Mr & Mrs SmithThe Dupont Circle Hotel is one of the best addresses in DC. Polished and perpetually hip, this elegant city stay is bang in the centre of the city, and has a splendid whisky bar too. Book for a summer weekend before the end of  August and get 15% off. That’s a double room from just £91.

Follow a capital stay at the weekend with a midweek break at the clapboard-colonial Inn at Perry Cabin (above) in Chesapeake Bay (two and a half hours east of Washington). It’s a nautical-but-nice spa retreat set in lovely leafy gardens, and it is offering 10% off midweek stays.

LA and Santa Barbara

Oceana-Santa Barbara_Santa Barbara3-620 Mr & Mrs SmithLike the idea of supping cocktails beside a rooftop pool while a funk DJ hits the decks and the sun sinks over the horizon? You should probably check into the Thompson Beverly Hills ASAP. With 15% off weekend stays, you can save some spending money for a spree on nearby Rodeo Drive.

If you need more of that famous California sun, breeze up the coast to the Oceana Santa Barbara (above), a colourful bayside bolthole every bit as bright and brilliant as the beach across the street. Combine a weekend in LA with a weekday stay here and claim 10% off a midweek stay.

San Francisco and Sonoma County

St Regis_San Francisco 2-620 Mr & Mrs Smith If LA’s not your kind of California, there’s always San Francisco, home to the sophisticated and spoiling St Regis Hotel (above), where you can get 5% off between now and the end of August.  

For a real escape to serenity, don’t miss the Farmhouse Inn in the Californian winelands of Sonoma County. There’s a wrap-around porch, fire pit and outdoor infinity pool – and a Michelin-starred chef at work in the kitchen. After a weekend in the city, three nights for the price of two at this romantic ranch could save you up to £100.
