The Most Romantic Hotel in Texas Celebrates a Month of Romance

AUSTIN, Texas-January 29, 2008-Romance is not confined to one day of the year at the romantic Driskill Hotel, where all things of the heart are celebrated throughout the month of February with three newly launched romance packages. For the guy looking to "Pop The Question" on Valentine's Day, the hotel's romance specialists help coordinate everything from a custom-designed ring to executing an unforgettable proposal. There's even a special getaway designed for travelers who are heartbroken and have sworn off love.

The "P.S...I Love You" package combines luxury accommodations with amenities certain to warm the heart such as a chilled bottle of champagne, handmade truffles from the 1886 Café & Bakery and a dozen long-stemmed roses. Guests may also choose to add on a seven-course "His & Hers" Valentine's dinner in the Driskill Grill on February 14-16. Appealing to the Venus and Mars notion of opposites attract, the pre fixe menu (see attached menu) features salmon tartare, foie gras and New York strip for men and then lightens up for the ladies with parsnip ginger soup, seared scallops and poached lobster tail. Dinner, priced at $95 per person, also includes complimentary champagne, roses for the females and cuff links for males.

When the thought of popping the question causes someone to pop out in a cold sweat, the hotel's romance specialists can help alleviate some of the stress. The convenient "Pop the Question" feature, which can be added to any of the romance packages, provides for a consultation with one of the hotel's romance specialists who helps guide the proposal process from ring selection at Kruger Jewelers in downtown Austin to arranging the proposal-whether over candlelit dinner in the Driskill Grill, gathered around the piano in the Driskill Bar or beneath the beautiful stained glass dome in the hotel's grand lobby.

Romance heats up with the "Amore and More" package that includes a few sensuous surprises for guests in their rooms. Massage oils, naughty love notes and intimate games are among the amorous amenities, as are champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries.

 When Cupid's arrow goes astray, cuddling up to a four-legged friend may be far more appealing than seeking other companionship. That's when the "I Y My Dog Better" package makes for a perfect getaway to The Driskill Hotel. Canine and human guests alike receive the royal treatment with deluxe accommodations, custom-designed pet beds, bottled water and chew toys for the prince or princess, champagne and a Driskill robe for the master, and gourmet treats for both.
