A wave of nostalgia is beckoning history buffs and lovebirds alike to the San Diego Natural History Museum’s Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, and for traveling twosomes who wish to experience the echo of a bygone era The US Grant Hotel is their port of call. The romantic retreat, which has stood as a sentinel overlooking the city of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter since 1910, is remembering the centennial of the ship of dream’s sinking with the Legend & Luxury package, which includes a night’s stay in the hotel and two tickets to the exhibition.
As guests drink in the refined atmosphere of the landmark hotel they will be greeted with a welcoming cocktail before settling in their room. Guests will also receive a $100 Food & Beverage credit that can be used for a romantic repast at The Grant Grill.
At Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, visitors will find themselves in the presence of the past as they receive a boarding pass featuring the name of a passenger on the voyage, bringing the human tragedy closer to home as sightseers walk past an array of items, including a lady’s hand mirror which once reflected the hopes and dreams of a woman whose identity is lost in the mist of time; perfume vials which still hold the haunting hint of fragrance, and a piece of a deck bench which silently viewed its last sunset on April 14, 1912. Visitors will also view faithful recreations of a first class cabin and the grand staircase, and feel the frigid cold which sealed the fate of all on board as they touch an iceberg.
