The elaborate Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside. (Christopher Reynolds /…)
The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside has a special offer for active and veteran members of the U.S. military this month: $159 a night for a room that includes dinner for two and valet parking. It's a good discount off the usual rates -- and might make for a nice Memorial Day getaway.
The deal: A Salute to Our Heroes package includes a room, dinner for two at the hotel's Bella Trattoria Italian Bistro and free valet parking. A military ID is required for this deal.
The historic hotel with 238 rooms has hosted presidents and celebrities since it opened as a modest guesthouse in 1876.
When: The offer is good through May 31.
Tested: I checked availability for Memorial Day weekend and found the deal available May 25-27 -- a deluxe queen room for $159 including tax. The same room on the same nights usually costs $190 a night plus tax -- without the extras.
