There’s a small hotel called L’Auberge Del Mar, set just off the ocean in a charming California city. It doesn’t have a wishing well but it does have all the Cupid essentials for an amorous Valentine’s Day plus great deals for the entire month of February.
In honor of the most romantic day of the year the hotel has added a Valentine’s Valet program that includes an online estore, L’Petite Boutique at http://laubergedelmar.esitetoolbox.com/index.php?CID=3), where lovers can purchase hotel gift certificates that will be wrapped in a beautiful basket filled with chocolate covered almonds, a half-bottle of champagne and beauty product from Spa L’Auberge. Once you paid for your package it will be delivered to the hotel’s Valentine’s Valet where you can drive through to porte cochere and pick it up anytime on Thursday, Feb. 13 or Friday, Feb. 14.
Valentine’s Valet baskets are priced at $200 (includes a $150 gift card), $300 (includes a $250 gift card) or $400 (includes a $350 gift card) and are now available for order. For more information call the hotel’s concierge at 858-793-6455.
