The Carolina Inn Celebrates Carolina Month of Romance in February

Special Packages and Amenities, Aphrodisiac Themed Tasting Menu and Prizes

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (January 25, 2010) – Why settle for just a single day of romance in February when you can celebrate for the entire month at The Carolina Inn via two memorable romance packages, an assortment of romantic amenities and special prizes?

The historic hotel is offering its Divine Romance Package – starting as low as $217 per couple per night and including sparkling wine and chocolate-covered strawberries upon arrival, breakfast in bed for two and a fashionably late check-out.

The quintessential Carolina Classic Romance Package starts as low as $195 per couple per night and features deluxe overnight accommodations and a $50 food and beverage credit. 

Chef Jimmy Reale presents a Five-Course Aphrodisiac Themed Tasting Menu served in the romantic, candle lit Four Star Award-Winning Carolina Crossroads Restaurant.  Pick your three-courses for just $100 per couple added to your night stay.

And add a little extra spark to your romantic stay with other specialty items, such as Romance VIP perks, a bottle of champagne with a cheese and fruit display, half a dozen long stemmed red roses, red rose petal turndown service, chocolate dipped strawberries and an aromatherapy gift basket from Bath & Body Works to surprise your sweetheart. Easily add these amenities as you book your overnight stay.

These simple packages include everything you need to sneak away with the one you love. Easy access to the UNC campus, Franklin Street and local attractions make both romance getaways a great deal.

Packages can be booked anytime between now and February 28, 2010 by calling 800-962-8519 or online at and using promo code CLASSICROM for the Classic Romance Package and DIVINEROM for the Divine Romance Package.

The Carolina Inn will hold weekly drawings for special giveaways of up to $650 in value throughout the month of February.

About The Carolina Inn
Recognized as one of America’s “cultural resources worthy of preservation,” The Carolina Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places with elite status as a AAA Four Diamond Award Hotel and Forbes (formerly Mobil) Four Star Award-Winning Dining at the Carolina Crossroads Restaurant. From the day it opened in 1924, the 184-room Inn has played an important role in the life of the University of North Carolina and the Chapel Hill community. As one of only four hotels in North Carolina built before 1925 to remain in continuous operation, it has long been one of the most popular sites in North Carolina for special events, weddings, business meetings, and academic conferences with over 13,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space. In addition to having a rich cultural history, The Carolina Inn is architecturally significant, blending elements of antebellum Southern plantation houses with Georgian and neoclassical features often found in the Northeast. The original front of the building was modeled after the Potomac River front of Mt. Vernon. The Carolina Inn is one of more than 30 independent, upscale and luxury hotels, resorts and golf clubs in the United States managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts, the fourth largest independent hospitality management company in the country.
