ART AND THE HOTEL: Any match-up between an overnight stay and a day at a museum holds an instant thrall. After all, it takes a lot of brain power to soak up art, and if you have a long drive facing you on the way home, well. The day can get a bit gray. The Omni Hotel in downtown San Diego is considering this, so consider this: You get an overnight at the tall, Gaslamp-located tower, plus two tickets to "Toulouse-Lautrec's Paris" at the San Diego Museum (the poster-filled extravaganza runs through Dec. 12).
AND: Croissants for breakfast. Mais oui. And a "Moulin Rouge!" DVD. Mais oui oui. If you're trés intrigué about this package, it is called the Belle Vue, and is available for $199 to $299. Ring the Omni and ask about it, art lovers.
