(Relaxnews) – Want to bag the award for staging the most memorable, elaborate and perhaps expensive proposal this year? For $100,000, one California hotel will hire out the entire Rose Bowl Stadium, plus the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra, and throw in a handcrafted diamond ring in its Valentine’s Day hotel package.

For The Langham Huntington, 2014 is the year the stars align: both The Huntington Langham hotel and the Rose Bowl Game (American college football) celebrate their centennial anniversary, while the Rose Parade fetes its 125th birthday.

To mark the trio of milestones, the hotel has developed an over-the-top “Proposal of the Century” package that may be of particular interest to couples who are also major football fans.

For example, the package includes the use of the Rose Bowl stadium’s video message board which would illuminate with “Marry Me”; the opportunity to pop the question directly on the field while being serenaded by the 40-piece Pasadena Symphony Orchestra, and a photographer to document the entire experience.

Oh, and the hotel will also throw in a handcrafted, 2.5-carat diamond ring, with a retail value of $35,000.

Here’s what else you get for a $100,000 proposal:

-A two night’s stay in the hotel’s presidential suite decked out in advance with 100 long-stemmed roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, monogrammed bathrobes, rose petals strewn throughout the suite, and a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal Rose Brut Millesime Champagne;

-A four-course meal either in-room or at The Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse’s Red Wine Room;

-Use of an engagement coordinator;

-Chauffeur services in a Bentley.

If $100,000 is a little steep, Hotelchatter.com reports that the InterContinental Los Angeles has also developed a Valentine’s Day package for couples where the sky is the limit.

The more modestly priced $11,000 Valentine’s Day package includes a stay in the hotel’s Presidential Suite, a 30-minute helicopter ride above Tinseltown, a six-course dinner on the rooftop helipad, and a couple’s spa treatment.

Reservations can be made at (310) 284-6557.
