Grab your best gal pals and celebrate Galentine’s Day in Valencia Style

Galentine’s Day – what is it?  This is a fairly new term and “holiday” that we are embracing at Valencia Group hotels.  The term was first introduced in February of 2010 in the 16th episode of the second season of Parks and Recreation.  Traditionally celebrated on February 13th, it’s celebrating the love of a friendship.

We like to say that all of our Valencia Group hotels are built in “mixed-use” developments, but what does that mean to you?  That means that all of our hotels are located in exceptional areas where once you arrive, you really don’t need a car.  All of our cities from Santana Row in San Jose to the River Walk in San Antonio are pedestrian friendly.  You can walk to theaters, spas, restaurants and bars and do all of the girly-girl things that women enjoy doing.

From glamping in Austin to high end sophistication in Kansas City, we invite you to plan the best girlfriend getaway ever at any of our award-winning hotels.  Relax, roam, retreat, and rejuvenate your friendships with hotels that offer a refined sense of place, stylish accommodations, and premier amenities.  For more information, visit www.valenciagroup.com or call 866.842.0100.
