TAIPEI--Fewer men have chosen to drop down on their knees and pop the big question at hotel restaurants on Valentine's Day this year, reported a number of five-star hotels in Taipei yesterday.
Only two men have scheduled marriage proposals for later in the day at the Grand Hyatt, compared with four successful proposals recorded last year, reported the hotel's Taipei branch, citing last year's Republic of China centennial celebrations as a factor.
The Regent Hotel reported only one scheduled marriage proposal later in the evening, while not a single marriage proposal was scheduled at the Palais de Chine Hotel.
Meanwhile, motels across the country were reporting high accommodation rates yesterday.
