A new San Francisco getaway package

A 'small hotel' getaway that includes a fab dinner? Why didn’t I think of this? Joie de Vivre Hotels has an amazing collection of boutique hotels throughout California, each with a distinct style and personality. I recently enjoyed a stay at The Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, so I’m intrigued by their Hotel Drisco in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights.

But what interests me most are their new stay-and-dine package deals, aka Epicurean Packages. Hotel guests can choose to book a meal with their stay, or more precisely, a three-course prix fixe menu with wine. The classic Drisco (built in 1903 and beautifully decorated and renovated) has partnered with four popular restaurants, each offering a different menu: Cassis, Garabaldis, 1300 Fillmore, and Yoshi's. All are just a short distance from the hotel.

Details: For example: the Package Provencale lets you dine at Garibaldi’s (available Sunday through Thursday evenings 5:30-8:00 p.m.). The Menu features a 3-course Prix Fixe Dinner, including a glass of wine with the first course, another with the Entrée and a glass of Port with the Dessert. The price of this Package, including tax and tip, is $180.00 for a couple.

[Note: Packages must be booked at least two days in advance; bookings not valid for same day arrival. There is a $25.00 cancellation charge per person for any cancellation within 72 hours of the arrival in addition to the room cancellation fees.]
