Pop The Question in Portland with a Leap Year Engagement Package at Hotel deLuxe

According to Old English law, there is one day every four years when women can take the initiative and propose. This year, Hotel deLuxe, an award-winning bastion of romantic Golden Age Hollywood glamour in downtown Portland, invites Leap Year lovebirds to seize that day, February 29, with the “Take The Leap” engagement package for a retro-inspired proposal that is sure to elicit an emphatic ‘yes.’

Those who book the Take The Leap package will be greeted with two champagne cocktails from the Driftwood Room, Hotel deLuxe’s famed classic cocktail lounge, as they check into a spacious and luxurious King Feature Suite. In the evening, they will enjoy a private three-course, in-room dinner catered by Gracie’s restaurant, a delectable cheesecake from local bakery Papa Haydn’s inscribed with “Will You Marry Me?” and romantic rose petal turndown service. The next day, the newly engaged couple can relax with a late check out before taking their $2,000 certificate to Portland’s Gilt jewelry shop and picking out the perfect vintage engagement ring.

Though finding inspiration in the past, modern lovers are no longer bound by tradition, especially in eclectic Portland.  This romantic package is perfect for everyone - women proposing to men, women proposing to women or, even, for men who want to buck convention and let Hotel deLuxe orchestrate a picture perfect Leap Year proposal.

The Take The Leap package is priced at $2,349, plus tax, and available only on February 29, 2012. To book, call 866-986-8085 or visit our website.
