6. Castle Hill Inn, Newport, R.I.
Playing a Rockefeller [and I do not mean Clark] or a Vanderbilt for a day, or a weekend, would encapsulate your stay at Castle Hill Inn. It's a true testament to the charm and splendor of the Victorian seacoast. The Romance Package is good for Valentine's Day weekend and includes two nights luxury [and I am really talking luxurious here] accommodations with a special "In-Room Amenity" to be delivered on arrival, a movie-standard-romance dinner, exclusive guests-only afternoon served tea, and gourmet breakfasts overlooking the bay.
