Milliken Creek Inn & Spa Encourages Playing Hooky

For Immediate Release

Napa Valley, California - 2010 -- Are the sounds of summer calling to you in your cubicle? Is stress killing the creative spirit needed to get that big project off the ground? If so, Milliken Creek Inn & Spa has the solution: a new, midweek package titled Playing Hooky. Guests can choose their arrival day (Sunday through Thursday) and enjoy an inviting Milliken room nestled in the historic main house, a much needed 60-minute aromatherapy massage to put the “verve” back in the work day, and, in the morning, a fabulous gourmet breakfast. In addition, Milliken’s concierge can arrange a day of wine tastings, a Napa adventure, and a casual or fine dining experience.

For guests seeking an über-leisurely escape, Milliken is tucked along the Napa River and offers a Zen garden ideal for an afternoon of reading, or they can choose to cocoon in their sumptuous guestroom and enjoy a gourmet popcorn snack and their pick from a selection of movies, including titles such as Working Girl and The Informant. To truly spotlight the essence of the Napa Valley, every evening at sunset, Milliken offers the complimentary Magic Hour, which is a gastronome wine tasting, and a late-night cordial bar in the main house.

The one-night Playing Hooky package is available from just $325* a night. The package is available from April 15 through December 23, 2010.
