Palo Alto Amoré



    Matthew Millman
    The Garden Court in Palo Alto is offering a Be Mine, Valentine package for 2011.

    BE MINE, VALENTINE: Rose petals and Champagne, yes, definitely, please. Candles, for sure. And frou-frou chocolate candies as well. But "evening port"? It's a sophisticated addition to the traditional February 14 touches, and it is part of the Garden Court's "Be Mine, Valentine" package. There's also a $25 credit toward eating at Il Fornaio at the Palo Alto property.

    THAT IS... If you don't overdo it on the chocolates. And best not, because there are Shokolaat pastries and Peet's, too. The deal is $299, and there are other hotel-nice tropes, too, so eye all, and the details, too.

    FURRY ONES WELCOME: We can't skedaddle without mentioning the Garden Court's beastie friendly policy. Read on, animal adorer.
