DANA POINT, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2014) - There is no more romantic place on Earth than Paris, except, perhaps, dusk on a California ocean view resort where everything from the menu to the décor bears the stamp of Parisian influence. Either way, guests can decide for themselves this Valentine's Day when the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa hosts "A Night in Paris" under the California stars.
As one of the most casually elegant Dana Point hotels, this resort enjoys breathtaking views of the Pacific from its Vue Lawn. The lush expanse is connected to its renowned restaurant, Vue, and it is the setting for A Night in Paris.
The French experience begins with the welcome. When guests arrive at the Vue Lawn, they receive a red rose and, after being seated, a champagne toast. Then, as the accordion player evokes images of the Eiffel Tower with his music and a mime and caricature artist entertain, guests tuck in to a four-course dinner that could rival anything prepared across the Atlantic. The hotel's Dana Point restaurant, after all, has built a reputation for preparing creative California cuisine with the freshest meats and seafood available, and its rendition of French classics is nothing short of gastronomic greatness.
The dinner begins with a frisee salad done with a champagne vinaigrette, followed by traditional French onion soup. From there, diners may choose to indulge in filet mignon served with wild mushrooms, haricots verts, baby carrots and au gratin potatoes. Or they can save room for dessert and order either pan-seared chicken breast or salmon served with a tarragon sauce.
Because Vue Restaurant easily ranks among the finest ocean view restaurants in Dana Point, dessert is indisputably worth waiting for. And A Night in Paris doesn't disappoint. When the entrée is cleared, guests can pick and choose among a Crepe Suzette station with vanilla ice cream, macaroons, truffles, éclairs and mini pastries.
After dinner, lovebirds can pair off on the dance floor and drink in the vistas from this Dana Point ocean-view hotel until 11 p.m. Then, as guests retreat to their homes or guest rooms, they'll receive a gifted dessert to end the evening on a sweet note.
Priced at $99 per person (including taxes, gratuities and valet parking), A Night in Paris begins at 6 p.m. on February 14, 2014. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 949-487-7516 or the Concierge at 949-487-7577.
And if you are unable to make it to A Night In Paris, you can still enjoy a special "Package of Love" the entire month of February. Visit the hotel website or call our Concierge for more information.
