Mission Inn: Heroes' Welcome Package

The historic Riverside Inn is honoring military members and first responders over Memorial Day Weekend.

HONORING THOSE WHO SERVE... can be done in many moving ways, from parades to picnics to concerts to ceremonies full of pomp. But if you're a hotel, and not a full-on town or community, how do you say "thank you" to military members and first responders? A bit of inn-spiration is in order, and the historic Mission Inn in Riverside has gone the distance for a Memorial Day Weekend special. This shouldn't surprise anyone who knows of the hotel's patriotic history, and the Commanders in Chief who have stayed there (yes, there's a President Taft chair in the lobby, and yes, the Reagans honeymooned at the castle-like property). And to honor its many fans who are active or retired military, or who serve as firefighters and police officers, the Mission Inn is taking Memorial Day -- and a day beyond -- to offer the Heroes' Welcome package. The package is on through...

TUESDAY, MAY 31, and it includes an overnight stay for two, plus a dinner for two at Bella Trattoria Italian Bistro (in the amount of $65), gratis valet parking, and a pair of treats from Casey's Cupcakes. The package price? It starts at $229 per night (just be sure to have your military ID at the ready). In addition, several Memorial Day Weekend buffets will be happening, and while they're not included in the package, feel free to make a reservation if the concept of a hotel buffet is your thing. What is a nice thing, for all businesses, is to find a way to show gratitude to heroes on Memorial Day and every day. The Mission Inn, with its presidential past, is on board.
