By Jay Lloyd

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A much sought after summer getaway splurge is the room with a view. Here are some ideas on where to look.

It could be as close as an overnight getaway in Philadelphia or a destination vacation abroad, but the view can become the single element that sets the mood.

There are many hotels in Philadelphia, but none with a room’s eye view as spectacular as the Hyatt Regency on Penn’s Landing with the Delaware River and its collection of historic ships below.

Cape May, down-the-shore, offers more than a dozen ocean front stay-and-play spots with the Marquis de Lafayette producing some of the best vistas, that often include an evening parade of playful dolphins.

But when it comes to the dramatic….

“Beautiful,” says a visitor to Niagara Falls. “I was not expecting them to be so grand.”
