Hotel St. Germain

Hotel St. Germain is a romantic Parisian getaway hidden like a French jewel in Dallas, Texas.

In their champagne bar tended by white-gloved butlers you can share a romantic rendezvous.

Breakfast in Bed - a guest favorite with fireplaces lit and rose petals strewn on the bed.

Originally built as a private home in 1906 Hotel St. Germain is united with its owner, Claire Heymann who was born into a family with old world French and new world Creole ties. The decor reflects the elegance of late 19th-century Paris and New Orleans.

Claire's flair for the romantic is evident in details large and small. Each of the hotel's private suites features a working fireplace, feather beds canopied with luxurious fabrics, a Jacuzzi or soaking tub and European toiletries. But the amenities do not end there. To Claire, true pampering calls for edible delights from morning to night. Breakfast, served in the New Orleans-style courtyard or delivered by room service, includes cafe au lait, fresh fruit compote and a sumptuous assortment of specialty breads and French pastries, baked fresh daily.

Its been a while since I visited this romantic hotel but it is truly unforgettable and my favorite weekend getaway.
