New Slant On An Old Gambit

By Rich Steck & Judi Janofsky

Boy, you know that "times they are a-changing" when a hotel recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of the Historic Hotels of America promotes a way to test the potential of a burgeoning relationship. They suggest a kind of upscale one nightstand, calling it a "Holidate - where a last minute date can be more than dinner and a goodnight kiss!"

The simple entrance to the Casa Marina retains the look of the 20s.

With perhaps a little unintended double entendre in their slightly tongue-in-cheek approach, here's what the hotel proposes:

"The Casa Marina Hotel and Restaurant [Jacksonville Beach, Florida] is a perfect destination for a Holidate. With couples interested in traveling together early in their new relationship, testing their compatibility and doing out of the ordinary things together, this historic oceanfront hotel offers more than just a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean. Planning a simple getaway puts a relationship to the test immediately.

Beachfront dining is a Casa Marina speciality.

"The Casa welcomes guests with a one-night 'package' getaway to relax and perhaps fall in love. Located directly on the ocean where guests rise early to watch the radiant morning beach sunrise, ending the day upstairs in the Penthouse to savor the last glorious colors of an evening sunset, the Holidate season is offered Sunday night or Wednesday night for a very unique date
