Douse Yourselves in Romance at The Horton Grand Hotel This Valentine’s Season

Vintage style couple with suitcases on train station platformElegant buildings, delicious restaurants, and the Padres are just a few of the things that come to mind when thinking of the Gaslamp Quarter. Today the Gaslamp Quarter is a bustling San Diego neighborhood perfect for a girls night out, family gatherings, business meetings and more. Above all else, though, the Gaslamp Quarter oozes romance.

 

Cities have long been the stage for passions to burst into life and weave their stories. The Horton Grand Hotel, one of the oldest establishments in the Gaslamp Quarter, has existed throughout the many chapters of San Diego history, bearing witness to the comings and goings of love affairs and adventure.

 

Romantic date in historical residenceThe Horton is a lavish hotel that was built to host important people, such as diplomats, celebrities, and even kings. The hotel was constructed right before San Diego debuted it’s first ever transcontinental railroad in 1885. A railroad that brought with it thousands of new tourists excited to venture into the “land of the sundown sea.” As far as modes of transportation go, none are as drenched in the way railways are.

 

Bustling city, new railroad, combined with an exquisite hotel built for kings, makes the Horton Grand Hotel a romantic getaway destination. This Valentine’s season, come sit in the Horton’s gorgeous lobby and absorb all the love affairs that may have taken place in the very same space. Imagine the coming and going of people past, and embody the romantic nostalgia, the kind that only comes from dreaming of history and what may have taken place.

No amount of fluffy teddy bear’s and boxes of chocolates can elicit romance the way a historical experience can. Be unique this holiday season and surprise your loved one with a historical getaway, steps from the finest dining, drinking, and shopping San Diego has to offer.
