BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Don’t break the bank…or any hearts, by celebrating this Valentine’s Day, or any other special day, at participating Hilton Garden Inn hotels.

A 2008 U.S. Travel Association survey reveals that four out of 10 Americans feel “more romantic” on vacation, taking the time to reconnect with their loved ones. With couples scrambling for gift ideas this year, a romantic getaway is a great option. In fact, a recent survey by the research firm Synovate revealed that approximately one in every three women (thirty six percent) chose a romantic overnight getaway as the top gift of choice for Valentine’s Day, followed by dinner and jewelry. "We want to help couples celebrate romance with our value enticing Romance Package," said Jim Cone, vice president of marketing, Hilton Garden Inn. "In these stressful times, treating each other to a weekend getaway gives our guests time to relax and reconnect…uninterrupted.”

The Hilton Garden Inn Romance Package provides guests with deluxe accommodations for two, an early check-in and late check-out* option (based on availability), sparkling wine** or sparkling cider upon check-in, and complimentary made-to-order breakfast for two at the hotel's restaurant. And with the Garden Sleep System®, Hilton Garden Inn hotels also feature one of the most comfortable beds ever designed. For those who want to postpone their romantic getaway and celebrate later in the year to honor an anniversary or other special occasion, the package can be booked year-round at HGI.com.

With Valentine’s Day falling on Saturday this year, the holiday is the perfect time for a short weekend escape, whether at a local Hilton Garden Inn or one of the more than 450 participating Hilton Garden Inn hotels across the country. The package offers couples the flexibility to retreat and enjoy the hotel’s whirlpool and other amenities or to get out and explore the local nightlife and attractions.

* Early check-in and late check-out are subject to availability at participating Hilton Garden Inn locations. 
**Subject to state and local laws. Must be of legal drinking age. Not available at all locations. Romance package is subject to availability at participating hotels.
