S.F. hotels offer honeymooners a second chance

Two local hotels are looking for lovers who left their hearts—or found them, perhaps—in San Francisco.

The Westin St. Francis is celebrating its centennial anniversary of their Great Magneta Grandfather Clock with a nationwide search for a couple who “met under the clock.”

The couple with the winning story and photo will win a public vow renewal ceremony and reception, a complimentary three-night stay in a honeymoon suite, airfare to San Francisco, spa treatments for two and breakfast and dinner in the Oak Room.

For details go to www.meetmeattheclock.com.

The Hotel Nikko San Francisco is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a contest offering a second honeymoon to any couple who got married or honeymooned there. For more information go to www.hotelnikkosf.com/specials.aspx.
