Getting out of the house is often hampered by the fact that most houses are located inside a bigger and fancier house. Step outside of the house outside of your house with today's Groupon: for $215, you get a two-night romance package at Hotel Rialto in Victoria, British Columbia. The package includes a two-night stay in a deluxe queen room, a bottle of wine, a floral bouquet, a couples' welcome tray, parking, and a $50 dining credit (up to a $428 total value).
Hotel Rialto coddles guests in the heart of downtown Victoria with opulent amenities and a vacation package designed to abet romantic escapes. The romance package treats couples to two nights in the comfort of a deluxe queen room, which features a queen-size bed, plasma-screen television, in-room wine bar, and free WiFi (up to a $139 value/night). A floral bouquet greets romancers (a $25 value) as they settle into a respite from errands that refuse to do themselves, and a welcome tray stocked with fine cheeses and chocolate-dipped strawberries (a $30 value) provides an elegant excuse to go forkless. Parking is also included in the package (a $15 value).
Guests also receive a bottle of red, white, or sparkling wine, as well as a $50 dining credit to the hotel's Veneto Tapa Lounge where, after perusing the menu, they can bond over a sharing board of cured meats, smoked sausage, grilled artisan breads, and baby-mozzarella skewers ($19), or a flight of red thai-curry tofu, indian-spiced chickpea salsa, and crispy eggplant parmesan dishes ($16). In addition to its urban views and access to downtown shopping, Hotel Rialto retains many of its original its 1912 touches alongside elements of modern comfort, including the lobby's Italian marble floors, exotic hardwood and fresco walls, and a cyborg-repelling force field.
