Romance for Those Sans Budget

Valentine's Day is just two weeks away so now's the time to plan. If you're stuck, consider this offer from the Ritz on Place Vendome:

Love is in the Air - Valentine's Package

02/01/2009 - 02/28/2009

Each couple who stay at the Ritz to celebrate their love will be showered with attention during the entire month of February.

- Upon arrival, all guests will be offered a half-bottle of Ritz rosé Champagne and a box of chocolates specially created by the Ritz’s Pastry Chef.

- The Ritz will discreetly place a superb “passion” rose in the room.

- As a souvenir of this special occasion and to celebrate Ritzy nights all year long, each couple will receive two personalized pillowcases embroidered with their initials.

Package includes American breakfast.

One night in a deluxe room, 895 euros.
One night in a deluxe suite, 2,325 euros.
Being considered the best valentine ever: priceless.

Hmm, let's see....a half-bottle of champagne (house name unknown), a box of chocolates (size undetermined, but probably small), a single rose, two pillowcases and breakfast....all this for only €895 ($1,145) or €2325 ($2,974) per night....those people at the Ritz certainly know how to entice a couple, don't they?

Hi Anne
I am afraid my thoughts were very much along with those of Starman.
I firmly believe that when it comes to being romantic it is the thought that counts. Not the cash.
Many years ago, on holiday in Paris I bought some roses and gave one to each pretty girl I encountered. It was worth it just to see the reaction, they were not sure about laughing, smiling, blushing or.

No need to be afraid. Dropping that much money on a hotel room only makes me laugh, and my husband feels the same way. If, on the other hand, it were a freebie....well, one can dream.
