We may be creatures of habit, but that doesn't mean we don't like to mix it up with a wild getaway once in a while. Break out of your cage and start monkeying around with this week's Escape to Porto Vista Hotel in the heart of San Diego's Little Italy and just minutes away from the famous San Diego Zoo.

Capture a two-night stay for two in a Queen Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($129) or Fridays and Saturdays ($149). Feeding here starts with a round of welcome cocktails and continues with a continental breakfast for two each morning. Feel free to indulge your nocturnal nature and stay out past your bedtime––a late 1 p.m. checkout is provided. For an additional $25 per night, mark a larger swath of territory with a King or Double Queen Room.

This stylish location offers a beautiful bird's-eye view of San Diego's harbor as well as short walks to restaurants, shops, and art galleries in charming Little Italy, where you'll want to hightail it toward the bustling farmers' market held on Saturdays.

Take a walk on the wild side at the world-famous, 100-acre San Diego Zoo, where you'll see more than 4,000 rare and endangered species including giant pandas, zebras, and dolphins as well as a prominent botanical collection.

Later on, stalk some delicious prey at the award-winning Glass Door restaurant perched above downtown on the fourth floor of the hotel. Sip a creative hand-crafted cocktail and take your palate on a safari with dishes like orange-mojito salmon with duck fries or rib-eye steak in a root beer-demi glaze.

Let this Escape be your natural habitat for rest and relaxation under the California sun––with prices like these, you're definitely getting the lion's share.
