Valentine’s Day Getaways in New Orleans :: Romance Package at Our Garden District B&B
Since Valentine’s Day falls in the middle of the week and on Ash Wednesday, a Catholic day of fasting, New Orleans is celebrating the romance of this special day a few days after February 14th. At Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast, we feel that love can be expressed in many different ways, therefore, we incorporated several passions into our “Retreat to Romance” package.
Passion for Antiques
If you love the romance of the past in the South, you’ll love our period furnished B&B where most pieces are from the era in which the house was built. Enjoy champagne and gourmet chocolates on one of our balconies. Each bedroom is named after a historic Louisiana plantation and features a custom-made mattress with an additional feather mattress for added luxury. Enjoy modern amenities such as a private bath with shower, personal central air and heat controls, hair dryer, ironing board, television and complimentary wireless internet access.
Passion for History
If you love history, your package includes a guided walking tour through the historic Garden District. Then hop on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar with passes included in our package to explore the French Quarter. This year, New Orleans celebrates its Tricentennial Anniversary – 300 years of history. Many events are planned as the city opens its doors to the world to share its rich history and culture.
Passion for Food
If you love food (and who doesn’t?), this package includes a $100 credit at Commander’s Palace, an exquisite Creole dining experience that happens to be a 5 minute walk from the B&B. There are also many other places to dine for fabulous NOLA cuisine just a short distance from the house. New Orleans is one of America’s food meccas that features Cajun and Creole and everything in between.
Passion for Architecture
If you love architecture, you will appreciate this Queen Anne Victorian beauty from the 1890s. It was designed and built in 1893 by famed New Orleans architect, Thomas Sully. The home was originally built for Francis Johnson and his family and is located on majestic St. Charles Avenue, right on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. Forget driving – take an enjoyable ride around the city on the streetcar with your 3 day pass included in your package. Also, you’re only steps away from the Garden District neighborhood where you can wander around marveling at the magnificent architecture everywhere.
For a memorable Valentine’s Day celebration anytime, our Garden District Bed & Breakfast will exceed your expectations. Book now!
