What’s better than relaxing with a good book in bed? Reading in bed at a luxury hotel.

The Morrison House in Old Town recently launched a new program, Bedside Reading, which offers guests great books to delve into during their stay.

The program (which is nationwide with other participating luxe hotels) offers a rotating selection of books, but the first trio includes Arlington-based author Helaine Mario and her latest thriller Dark Rhapsody.

The second in the local author’s Maggie O’Shea mystery series follows four seemingly disparate stories that all intertwine throughout the novel. A luxe Old Town hotel and some great reading material on the bedside? Sounds like the perfect staycation to us. // Morrison House: 116 S. Alfred St., Alexandria; rates from $239
