Whether it's to escape the kids for awhile or celebrate an anniversary, consider these romantic getaways in Sacramento next time you need some alone time.
The Delta King Hotel
If you are looking for a unique Sacramento experience, then take up lodgings on The Delta King. This historic riverboat makes its permanent dock on the Sacramento River along Front Street in Old Sacramento. There are more than 40 staterooms, including the Captain's Quarters. Although The Delta King is centrally located in Old Sacramento, you won't have to leave the boat to dine or find some entertainment: The Pilothouse Restaurant, Delta King Theatre, and Suspects Mystery Dinner are all found on board.
The Sterling Hotel
The elegant Sterling Hotel beckons couples to spend their romantic getaways at this Victorian hotel. This four-star hotel features spacious rooms, Italian marble bathrooms, and luxurious and feathery beds. Guests can also enjoy an equally romantic dinner at the Chanterelle Restaurant.
The Inn & Spa at Parkside
The Inn & Spa at Parkside is a bed and breakfast with perfectly landscaped grounds. Whether you stay overnight or just escape for a meal or beauty pampering, this is the ultimate in romance and relaxation. Every room comes with a gourmet multi-course breakfast, and it also happens to be the closest luxury hotel to the Sacramento Airport.
Made up of two historic homes in midtown, Amber House has an attentive staff and plenty of specials and packages year round. This is a popular wedding night destination, but can also serve as a weekend getaway no matter what stage of relationship you're in.
Creating the Perfect Escape
Wherever you choose to stay, remember to make things special for your romantic getaway. See if the hotel provides champagne or flowers for anniversaries, or bring your own. If you're more in the mood to just de-stress, check for special spa packages and offers at the hotels which are applicable for such services. Most importantly, take some time to enjoy each other. Turn off all electronics and dedicate your stay to some quality alone time.
