Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but don’t despair.. But you didn’t need me to tell you that, right? With stores inundated with chocolate, hearts and all things red and pink, it’s hard not to think about Valentine’s Day. But if you’ve been caught off-guard, or even if you’re an early bird planning for next year, don’t despair! If it feels like you’re hurtling towards the day with no real plan in store, Omni Hotels & Resorts is here to help you take stock and make it a most memorable day.
With its dedicated properties across North America, Omni Hotels & Resorts has something for every budget and lifestyle. Omni will help you breathe easier, and with its romantic packages and last-minute deals, each Omni property is here to help its guests take their Valentine’s breath away!
Looking for something truly romantic? Available nationwide, Omni is offering the “Retreat to Romance” package this year. With a surplus of lavish amenities, the package includes a pre-call from a concierge to customize your stay; a charming bottle of Chandon sparkling wine; late checkout; a $100 cocktail and cuisine credit that can be used for in-room dining or at on-property outlets; robes, music and even romantic mood lighting that’s set for you at turndown.
Another unique feature that places the Omni brand apart from its peers is each property’s attention to detail. Just as you’re familiar with hearing that location is everything, with the Omni brand, detail is everything. To this end, not only does each property across the country blend in with the local culture, Omni properties manage their personal touch while still providing guests the luxury and award-winning service that the brand is known for, including four-diamond services, immaculately-appointed rooms and suites, and a host of prizewinning restaurants.
In addition to each Omni property catering to the local culture, for Valentine’s Day, there are property-specific events and offerings available as well. At the Omni Parker House in Boston, for instance, rekindle the magic of Camelot by staying where, in 1953, JFK proposed to Jackie Bouvier (Parker’s Restaurant) and held his bachelor’s party (The Press Room of The Parker House).
