Brighten up your summer with the colours of the Aquatic Capital of America: Long Beach, California.

With its splashy style, the Hotel Current is the perfect starting point, and with this today’s escape you will get a two-night stay for the price of one in a trendy Lifestyle King or Lifestyle Double Double ($179), with a complimentary two-person lunch or dinner package at Greenfield's Brazilian Churrascaria.

Each of the 100 Lifestyle guest rooms comes in one of four vivid colour schemes and features original paintings by local artists, hardwood floors, mod furniture, flat screen TVs, wireless internet and pillow-topped beds.

Green-living touches are also evident throughout this pet-friendly hotel. Curtains are crafted from hemp or recycled plastic bottles and floors are made of eco-friendly bamboo, while fridges, hair dryers and other appliances are all energy efficient.

In order to sculpt the perfect retreat, you will want to start with daily continental breakfast, followed by lunch or dinner for two — and one non-alcoholic drink — at Green Field Churrascaria, all of which is included in the escape.

Then, relax poolside in a calming cabana, or feed your creativity in the hotel's Fun Gallery. Oversize beanbag chairs mingle with a conference table, seats and LCD TVs. Talk to a hotel team member about reserving the gallery for a meeting or just a night of movies.

Let your imagination paint the way, as Hotel CURRENT's complimentary shuttle service jets you to the destination of your choice within five miles of the property. Discover colourful aquatic life at the Aquarium of the Pacific, or cruise the equally vibrant shops, eateries, galleries and other independent shops on 4th Street's Retro Row. Browse the eclectic collections at the Long Beach Museum of Art, or sit for some live entertainment at Musical Theatre West.

Comfy abodes, delicious dining, attentive service — you do not have to be an art expert to see this escape is a masterpiece.
