§ Unlimited spa and salon treatments for one day in the award-winning Ritz-Carlton Spa, Key Biscayne
§ A five-course aphrodisiac-infused dinner for two served by a private butler in a romantic, secluded oceanfront gazebo bathed in candlelight, filled with scattered rose petals and serenaded by a violinist

§ Private limousine and driver anywhere, anytime - 24 hours a day
§ 24-hour on-call butler
§ Private paparazzi to document the entire stay
§ Rose petal turndown
§ Proof of Love certificate

I suspect hotels sell as many of these packages as restaurants sell $500 hamburgers or $1,000 martinis. The only kind of "love" being pursued here is the love of businesses for free PR, and the that of editors for an easy story.

Does anyone remember the catalog company Horchow, which pioneered this publicity-seeking approach by offering preposterous Christmas gifts like Noah's Arks with real animals?

I want to know how the Ritz Carlton cornered the market on "Proof of Love."
This sounds like a valuable tool that could put "Ask Amy" and Carolyn Hax out of business!
