The Langham Hotel, Pasadena – A perfect romantic getaway

by Lee Rose Emery

3_hotel_lobbyHow long has it been since you and your significant other have been away together without kids even for a night or two?

Here’s a Valentine’s Day idea, find a sitter, or better yet, a family member or friends to watch your kids, pack a little bag, and I do mean little, (no diapers, no juice boxes, no stuffed animals, no leggo.) Jump in your car and drive twenty minutes to Pasadena to the Langham Hotel and Spa.

The Langham is a beautiful, grand hotel, with luxurious rooms, a spa, an outdoor heated pool, trails for jogging, and a fitness center. It is so close to LA but it feels like a world away. My husband and I were there last weekend, our Valentine’s Day present to each other. We stayed in an elegant room that felt like it was floating in the mountains. We never left the hotel. We barely left our room, frankly. (Did I mention we NEVER get away alone?) We did manage to leave the room to have dinner in the Terrace Dining Room at the hotel. We dined on filet mignon and chocolate soufflés. The service was impeccable, and the food delicious. To be able to linger and relax at dinner without checking our watches and worrying about returning home for the sitter was such a luxury. It felt like a mini-vacation.

Surprise your Valentine, and book a weekend or even one night away, just the two of you. You will love the Langham Hotel, and they have a number of reasonable rates and special packages, some of which include spa treatments. Book a mini vacation, with no kids, no airplane rides, no security lines, just the two of you. That will surely inspire the spirit of Saint Valentine, with or without a box of chocolates.
