Date Night Escape

Date Night Escape Hotel Reservations

As new parents, it is bittersweet leaving our baby girl for a night because we miss her so much…BUT as new parents, we also need our time to recharge, reconnect, and have a grown-up date. We found the perfect place to do all of that at the West Baden Springs Hotel at French Lick Resort … close to home, but we felt like we were millions of miles away!

Once again, the Atrium pulled us in. It takes on a whole other life at night, especially with a bottle of wine. Live music was playing and the lights had been dimmed down for the light show. We relaxed into two chairs and generously poured the wine into our glasses. We sipped while talking, laughing, and enjoying the romantic atmosphere.

We slept great, but we had to be up early because of a wedding. We made sure to stop by Café Sinclair’s for breakfast before heading out. Again, our waitstaff took care of our every need…even offering to get us Starbucks coffee from Xanadu. The menu had many options, so we went to our go-to breakfast order…a Belgian waffle with bacon and scrambled eggs for me and biscuits and gravy for Tommy.


Even though our stay was only for one night, the luxurious surroundings made the escape feel like more. It was definitely what we needed! Now that we've experienced West Baden Springs Hotel as guests, we know we will be back because we haven't experienced it all. Did someone mention they have balcony rooms overlooking the Atrium? We will have to start saving a little for that that indulgence, and maybe make an entire weekend out of it!
