TH Deal: Spring Getaway
See related: Greetings From (Just Off) I-35
It’s time to plan your springtime getaway, and have we a deal for you! At New Braunfels’ Prince Solms Inn, built by German craftsmen in 1898, mention the “Texas Highways Spring Getaway Deal,” and you’ll receive a 20% discount on room rates through May 24. The Inn’s cottages, for example, which normally sell for $175, go for $140 for Texas Highways readers. Standard guest rooms normally sell for $125 and go for $100 with the discount. (There is a two-night minimum on weekends; one night is fine during the week.)
This discount includes the room portion of the Inn’s many special packages, including the Wine Lover’s Weekend Package and the popular “Discover New Braunfels Package.” The latter— which includes two night’s lodging, a full country breakfast for two each morning, a bottle of Hill Country wine, a $50 credit towards dinner at a New Braunfels restaurant for each night, and a picnic basket loaded with goodies to enjoy at nearby Dry Comal Creek vineyards—normally costs $480 (plus tax), but Texas Highways readers can enjoy the package for $430.
The Prince Solms Inn is at 295 E. San Antonio in downtown New Braunfels, and is famous not only for its longevity (since 1898!), its architecture (made of cypress from the banks of the Guadalupe River), its shaded patio, downstairs piano bar, and its easy access to New Braunfels-area attractions (tubing the Guadalupe, golf, Schlitterhbahn, Natural Bridge Caverns, Gruene Hall, Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch), but also for its breakfasts. The Inn’s chef prepares morning delicacies such as bananas Foster pancakes, cranberry streusel muffins, and ham & Swiss breakfast pie.
