Flower baths plan slated

NEW ORLEANS -- There's always something new at the International House, located two blocks from the historic French Quarter.

Since its 1998 opening as New Orleans' first boutique hotel, the 119-room property has highlighted a number of innovative special focuses.

The new focus is on sensuality, with a special Southern Flower Baths package, beginning Dec. 22.

Beginning with an in-room massage for two, the plan includes a flower-filled bath accompanied by scented aromatherapy candles and

Southern Comfort blended with an iced tropical punch.

The package price is $539, including a room upgrade subject to availability.

Rack rates run $189 to $250.
