This is a big month in Paso Robles. The city launches its fifth annual Hotel Month to coincide with California’s Restaurant Month in January. Participating hotels will offer up to 20 percent off room rates if you book two or more evenings, plus they present you with a complimentary bottle of wine at check-in. I’ll toast to that deal!
Next, celebrate your foodie-side by mapping out a meal at one of the many local restaurants for a special three-course meal priced at $30-$40 per person. Even better, no corkage fees on those complimentary bottles of wine you picked up at your hotel check-in.
To make your stay even sweeter, Paso Robles wineries have “Go Local” wine deals for special wine tastings, wine and food pairings, and vineyard tours.
Participating hotels include Adelaide Inn, Best Western PLUS Black Oak, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn and Suites, La Quinta Inn and Suites, Paso Robles Inn and The Oaks Hotel and Suites.
Check out meal deals at Artisan, Bistro Laurent, Buona Tavola, Cello Ristorante and Bar at the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, Enoteca Restaurant and Bar at La Bellasera Hotel, Estrella Restaurant, Fish Gaucho, Indulge Restaurant at The Oaks Hotel, La Cosecha Bar and Restaurant, Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse, Paso Terra, The Grill at Hunter Ranch Golf Course, The Hatch Rotisserie and Bar and Thomas Hill Organics Bistro and Wine Lounge.
Be safe and comfortable by making arrangements in advance with a local car service. Fetch, transportation service, is offering two promotions in January. Book a wine or specialty tour and receive an extra hour for free. Or call for pick-up or drop-off service and receive a voucher for an hour free for when you book a tour of four hours or more. Don’t forget to tell them you want the “Hotel Month” to redeem these special savings.
