    Long to look upon the ocean for a whole afternoon? This could be your room.

    ROOMS INSIDE AN INN... are very often lavish, and the details and touches instantly inspire conversation among those checking in. You and your perfect co-traveler will likely discuss the local magazines, and the flowers, and the soaps, and the interesting throw pillows, and the view. But rarely are you given the opportunity to say the words "wow, a telescope!" upon entering hotel room. (The reason for this is pretty straightforward: Telescopes almost never appear in hotel rooms.) That will change should you book the recently introduced Suite Bliss package at the Blue Lantern Inn in Dana Point.

    SPOILER ALERT: There is a telescope in your Tower Suite, which is handy, because the window looks out onto the Pacific Ocean, though "gazes" might be more romantic and apt (if a window could gaze). And chances are you'll want to train the lens on the waves, the better to keep watch for blowholes (of the whale and dolphin assortment) as well as any other birds or mammals that happen to roam into view (and, of course, the occasional boat). But an in-room telescope isn't the only sweet part of the Suite Bliss deal. There are...

    ROYAL TREATMENT MASSAGES FOR TWO, a quartet of Le Belge chocolate truffles when you arrive (to go with your gratis sparkling vino), more vino and small bites in the afternoon, and breakfast for two. Good stuff, especially as those massages are out-sized at 80 minutes, but there's one more nifty quirk to consider: The robe you fall in love with, and vow to never take off, after you lounge about in front of your in-room gas fireplace? You can keep it. The two-night package starts at $1,075, and there are other treats, such as cookies and parking, to ponder as you plot your telescope-cool, ocean-adjacent, robe-keeping getaway. Follow the light of the Blue Lantern and daydream about Dana Point days now.
