Metropolitan by COMO Miami

Serenity doesn’t have to be sacrificed just because you’re staying in the heart of thumping Collins Avenue. The eighth floor of this Asian-influenced hotel is a bastion of zen, all water views, hydrotherapy pools and steam rooms. Sign up for a private yoga or meditation session with mom, then carry that elevated mood through the Guinot Hydradermie Plus Treatment—specifically devised to make the skin, neck and eyes glow like a teenager’s. Want to say thank you in a more profound way? Book a session with “intuitive healer” Susan King, who promises to give her a new perspective on the past, the present and whatever the future may hold. Ages 16 and up

The Jefferson Washington, DC

The aptly named Petite Spa (it clocks in at 1,160 square feet) caters to just three guests at a time, which means you and mom will likely have the place all to yourself. Book in advance and lavish her with facials and massages using super-deluxe products like Red Flower and Darphin, or go for broke and take over the 800-square-foot Spa Suite, with unlimited treatments for two. Our favorite: the Spring Ritual, a steam bath followed by a wild cherry–blossom poultice massage using flowers plucked straight from the hotel garden (it was inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello). When you’re duly rejuvenated, take a stroll down the Mall: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is just four blocks away. Ages 18 and up

The Langham, Chicago Chicago

Waters run deep at The Langham Chicago’s spa. Every treatment begins with a Bathing Ritual that takes the body from hot soaks to cold dunks in an effort to deepen relaxation. We love the Escapes 80- to 120-minute rituals that include multiple treatments to settle nerves. Sign up for The Chuan Chicago, which uses a special balm and heated wooden Chinese reeds to engage pressure points. Another winner is the full-body mud wrap, where your skin is rubbed with oils and your head gets a soothing massage. Ages 16 and up

Nothing says, “Thanks, Mom,” like the Hollywood Glamour treatment, an exfoliating body scrub with diamond and amethyst powders followed by a resurfacing facial with white caviar. Ages 16 and up

Solage Calistoga Napa

Nothing can strengthen the bond between mother and child like slathering on mud and shvitzing it off. At the Solage Calistoga, the Mudslide Experience is as much fun as it sounds; guests start by choosing a mineral-rich tonic at the Mud Bar and letting it harden to a crust, then showering it off before soaking in a tub and wrapping oneself up in a heated blanket. During the power nap, you’ll slip into that half-awake/half-asleep zone—now is your chance to ask mom her deepest secrets! Ages 16 and up

Hotel Jerome Aspen

Adjusting to Aspen’s altitude can be tough, but not once you check into the Auberge Spa at the Hotel Jerome. The spa incorporates traditional therapies native to Colorado, and also aims to counteract the effects of the thin air. Try the Hematite and Basalt Stone Massage—in which warmed basalt stones penetrate deep into the muscles—or the High Altitude Sports Recovery Massage, where firm pressure and therapeutic oils work in concert to relieve sore muscles. Ages 16 and up
