Published 02/02/2011

San Diego’s romantic Cosmopolitan Hotel and Restaurant, in the heart of Old Town Historic State Park, is offering a special Valentines weekend package: stay two nights, between Feb. 10 and Feb. 15, and receive a $50 certificate to the restaurant and saloon.  A special three-course Prix Fixe menu will be available all week for $29.95.

And to sweeten the deal even further, the Cosmo pastry chef is creating a special selection of her most enticing desserts. For reservations call: 619.297.1874 or email Room rates range from $160 to $290.

After a $6.5 million dollar rehabilitation and restoration the Cosmopolitan - the oldest surviving building in San Diego - has been returned to its historic appearance as the 1869 Cosmopolitan Hotel, fulfilling a 50-year goal of historians and many San Diegans to restore the 19th-century landmark and recapture some of San Diego’s most important architectural legacy.

Overnight guests at this charming B&B stay in 10 spectacular rooms on the second floor, each room unique in its appointments with antique furniture matching that of the original hotel opened in 1869. And, yes, there is WiFi.

The Cosmopolitan Hotel houses a popular full-service restaurant and saloon, brimming with luxurious vintage ambience.  But the cuisine is 21st-century, featuring American grill, seafood and favorite Mexican favorite dishes, served al fresco on the beautiful orchard patio, indoor in the sala, in the privacy of a guest room or out on the veranda.

At the saloon bar —the oldest in San Diego, dating back to 1870 - the bartender gladly mixes one of his favorite old drinks served there in the 1870s as well as a full selection of beers, wines and modern cocktails. 

Within walking distance guests will find historic buildings and quaint shops. Close by: SeaWorld, beautiful beaches, Mission Valley (shopping), Downtown San Diego (everything!), the harbor and embarcadero, Little Italy (restaurants), Balboa Park (museums) and more.

Clift Hotel in San Francisco isn’t getting as romantic as it is celebrating the Year of the Rabbit in already romantic surroundings.

Mention the Year of the Rabbit at the hotel and receive a complimentary dessert at Velvet Room, half off a second cocktail at Redwood Room or an upgrade to the best available room at check in. Valid through March 31.

The swanky, mod hotel is already offering an interesting “Lust” hotel package for those romancers.
