It's not an exaggeration to say that this is the perfect place to have a romantic weekend. This historic building was once a home, but it can be your home for a short time. They don't have room numbers; the rooms have names. Just walking into the building feels like you've stumbled into an unlocked home of one of the nation's great authors. Almost everything catches your eye, and you know there's history to this place. The fact that you can actually reserve sections of it for you and your loved one is almost unbelievable. But be warned: this place is not cheap. You will pay for the elegance, but something tells me you won't regret it one bit.Recommended for:

I only went to look at a suite and spent almost 45 minutes at the St. Germain. The Victorian home-turned hotel houses several private suites with common dining and living areas. The ambiance, and everything about the decor is classically French. With antiques throughout the space, it’s hard to believe you’re in the middle of a major metropolis like Dallas. I visited the garden and was immediately transported to New Orleans. I just can’t get over how much character is in this hotel. I visited two suites, Suite 1, which was modest in size (but still crazy opulent) and the infamous Suite 6. My host, Claude, told me that he’d never heard of a marriage proposal that had been turned down in Suite 6. It’s enchanting to say the least. To describe the air of the St. Germain is hard. It’s pretty formal, but by the same token, you’re sharing living space with other guests. “Friendly formal” would have to be my best description--semi formal attire is required for dinner and there is a private chef and butlers on hand who know guests by name. But the reception is welcoming, not snooty or exclusive. It was a place unlike anywhere else.Recommended for:
