Any month of the year can be a great time to get away for that romantic getaway. As I meet our guests each day at The Hotel Pattee, I learn about anniversary celebrations, surprise birthday getaway, or the more common “I just wanted to do something nice for my significant other.” Most of the time the latter is a guy who has surprised his lady for a night or two away at the Hotel Pattee and perhaps includes some of our services at the Copper Door Spa. 99.9% of the time, I will joke with that couple and say something like “You have a smart man here! Or what did you (the guy) do to get in the doghouse? Whatever it was, you are out of it now…great job!” Or something along those lines.
Some of the fun stories are the couples who stay each year on their anniversary in the room they stayed on their honeymoon night. Or the couples who get engaged at the hotel. Recently, we had a gentleman reach out to us to arrange for a dozen roses, a bottle of champagne and some chocolate covered strawberries to be placed in the Louis Armstrong Suite. He was going to propose to his girlfriend. We gladly helped with these little extras and yes…the young lady said YES to him!
The other fun part of my job is meeting people from literally all over the world. Young couples, old couples, same sex couples or traditional couples. We’ve hosted rehearsal dinners, weddings, receptions and anniversary parties for all of the above.
One other common theme that I hear is this: “We should have done this a long time ago, as we kept putting this trip off as we are so busy.”
Bottom line is this: Love is in the Air. 365. Don’t let another month go by without doing something
special for the one who loves you!
No matter who you are, we welcome you at the Hotel Pattee for your next romantic getaway.
In addition to our regular guest rooms and suites, we also offer several great packages.
