Romance for one

nolly pointed me at a Monterey hotel called, creatively, Monterey Hotel.

They have a Romance Package available on the dates I'm planning to stay. For some reason it is cheaper than all their other rates.

The Romance Package includes:
  • A trail of red, silk rose petals will lead you from the front door of your hotel room to the bedroom area.
  • The bed will be decorated with over 150 red, silk rose petals, elegant fabric tulle, and long strands of pearl beads, colorful chocolate kisses, red metallic streamers, feather boa and a large bouquet of balloons.
I told this to the OH in IM:

The OH
Ugh
No wonder it's cheaper

Exactly.
But if you can KEEP all the silk rose petals, fabric, pearl beads, and such, it's a hoarding crafter's dream
Also I find the idea of booking it just for myself kind of amusing.

2:48 PM
The OH
Just make sure to bring an extra-large vibrator

2:48 PM
Stef
HAHAHAHAHA
I am so blogging this

2:48 PM
The OH
I mean, extra-loud
What exactly are you blogging?

2:49 PM

2:50 PM
The OH
Uh-HUH

I asked my sister, assuming you haven't already decided on this place, and she said you might also want to check on Cannery Row near the Aquarium.

*laughs*

That was pretty much exactly the thought that went through my head.

Enjoy!

Sometimes "romance package" rates are quoted per person - so the rate might be twice what it appears at first glance.

Not if she's on her own :)

Well, yeah, cause the real rate is x, and they quote half of x - but even alone you have to pay the full rate. I've been tricked that way before!

I can't imagine how that could ever be romantic!

I read this aloud to my housemate, who said, "That sounds like a 13-year-old's idea of romance. Who wants to make love on a bed full of scratchy fabric and foil?"

At least the pearl beads could be useful.

Not if they're from Oriental Trading! Considering the rest of the stuff, I'd be surprised if the pearl beads are decent, or able to be taken off the string (like cheap Mardi Gras beads -- the plastic is fused on the string).

Hahahaha!!! That's great. Bring the extra-loud vibrator, and be sure to be extra-loud yourself. :)

What a mess, though. Also, what a waste - if you weren't a crafter, all that stuff would be dumped out. If you can spare some of those petals, as another crafter, I would love a few. They'd also be a great thing to put on an altar.

Oh, and also
long strands of pearl beads, colorful chocolate kisses, red metallic streamers, feather boa and a large bouquet of balloons

Kitty toys!!

OK, dangerous kitty toys, but the kitties would certainly like them.
