What You'll Get
Like the slow accumulation of empty frosting tubs on the nightstand, the banalities of day-to-day living can chip away the romance from even the happiest relationships. Today's Groupon re-sparks listless lovey-doveys with the ideal weekend getaway, romantic getaway, or getaway to watch the Charlie Sheen movie The Getaway: for $99, you get one room (up to $139) plus dinner for two ($80) at the Houston Marriott North at Greenspoint, about 30 minutes from downtown. The room may include either a king-sized bed, queen-sized bed, or two double beds, giving this Groupon a total value of up to $219. Customers can buy up to three Groupons and use them consecutively, though the rooms will be subject to availability.
Whatever size room you receive, all guest rooms come outfitted with Marriott's signature "Revive" bed, which is (hopefully) the closest you'll ever experience to falling asleep inside a wedding cake. "Revive" mattresses are thicker than normal ones and have a plush topper for added comfort, along with a down comforter, extra pillows, and 300-thread-count sheets. It'll be a welcome respite after a day of sampling the many activities within convenient distance from the Marriott: shopping at Greenspoint Mall, loudly suggesting that racehorses run faster at the Sam Houston Race Park, or just swimming in the hotel's indoor pool. You'll also enjoy amenities such as an on-site fitness center, in-room coffee and tea, and gorgeous views of the Houston skyline in all its colors (Houston has more than half of the colors on the ROYGBIV spectrum).
After a day of infiltrating the hotspots of downtown Houston—particularly its secret teddy-bear picnics and legally questionable teddy-bear baitings—you and your dining companion can cap it off back at the Houston Marriott with herb-marinated New York strip steak, crab-stuffed shrimp, butter-whipped potatoes, sautéed spinach, and either New York cheesecake or molten chocolate cake. You can make substitutions for any part of your meal and wash it all down with two non-alcoholic beverages.
Besides offering a romantic respite from reality for locals, a stay at the Houston Marriott North at Greenspoint is a welcome deal for out-of-town guests you're anticipating, as well as a surprise gift "vacation" to temporarily vacation someone out of your life. Call ahead to make your reservation.
