Billed as an unparalleled engagement experience for couples who treasure elegance, roses, culture and romance, The Langham Huntington’s “$100,000 Proposal of the Century” is part of a special tribute marking the hotel’s 100th birthday.
Located in Pasadena, Calif., the home of the famous Tournament of Roses Parade, the luxurious hotel has put together a proposal package that includes a cornucopia of elegant components, including the private and exclusive use of the Rose Bowl Stadium and a $35,000 engagement ring.
Imagine the grandeur of delivering a romantic proposal on the field of the iconic — and mammoth — 100,000-seat Rose Bowl Stadium in the presence of 40 of your closest friends and relatives. On the stadium’s giant video message board is an illuminated “Marry Me” message as you get down on one knee and slip a handcrafted, custom-designed 2.5-carat cushion-cut diamond ring on your beloved’s finger.
All the while, the 40-piece Pasadena Symphony Orchestra plays in the background while an engagement photographer and videographer document every moment.
After the celebration, you and your new fiancée are whisked away from the stadium via a chauffeur-driven Bentley Flying Spur sedan, and when you arrive at the hotel, you prepare for two nights in the 3,200-square-foot Tournament of Roses Presidential Suite. Assigned to take care of every need is a dedicated Engagement Coordinator.
Your in-suite VIP amenities include a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal Rose Brut Millesime Champagne, 100 long-stemmed roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, a pair of monogrammed Langham bathrobes and fresh rose petals sprinkled throughout the suite.
And each day at the hotel, you look forward to a delectable four-course dinner, which is served in your room.
The hotel is promoting the Proposal of the Century as a perfect tie-in to the romantic Valentine season, but the offer will be available through December 29, 2014.
