Sochi may have headlined as the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics, but the city in Russia has long taken center stage as the country's unofficial Summer Capital. Visitors from across the globe flock to Sochi in order to soak up the sun, kick back by the beaches of the Black Sea, and see wildlife. While staying at hotels in Sochi, you'll be just steps from the action at the Monkey Nursery Center, the gorgeous gardens of Riviera Park, or the new Sochi Olympic Park. When you're not sightseeing, cheer "Nostrovia" with the locals and try a regional vodka cocktail, or dig into a Russian take on the area's fresh seafood.
A day of dolphin spotting, beach walking, tea shopping, and vodka sipping can leave you exhausted, which means that Sochi hotels are a must. Expedia has what you're looking for whether you're in the mood for an upscale luxury hotel housed in an ancient palace or a charming inn with a view overlooking the Black Sea. Cheap deals abound for those one-night stays, long weekend getaways, or epic vacations with the entire family in tow. Snagging discounts from Expedia helps you save money on your trip to Sochi, which puts cash right back in your pocket. Use it to upgrade your vacation by splurging on a bottle of the famous local Abkhazian wines, a hiking tour to the peak of Mount Akhun for world-class views of the city, or a seriously relaxing traditional Russian massage. You earned the chance to indulge, so take advantage of great hotel deals for a trip you'll remember for a lifetime.
