Why is it that hotels are automatically more conducive to romance than staying at home? Whether it’s the anonymity, the thread count, or the absence of your dirty dishes, a Valentine’s staycation in New York or Los Angeles makes it easy to relax. These four hotels offer several twists on a seductive stay – including one that brings the hotel to you, astrological readings, or a couples fashion photo shoot.
Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles
The Love Bubble from Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles brings the posh lodgings to your house. The $3,350 package delivers an at-home experience including a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, macarons, signature microfiber robes, sea salt scrub, plush pillows and a full set of Frette bed linens.
Indoor dining isn’t happening in Los Angeles – unless you’re in a deluxe king suite at the historic Sunset Strip hotel (pictured), where the Valentine’s Day stay ($875) includes a three course dinner for two from the Tower Bar, served in the room, and a bottle of Moet & Chandon.
Love & Luxuries from the midtown Manhattan hotel offers chocolate, souvenir champagne flutes, cashmere robes and breakfast in bed – plus a private, one hour fashion photo shoot with professional styling, hair, make-up and outfit selection in the glam Grand Salon or bar.
Four Seasons Hotel N.Y.
The Downtown Manhattan hotel’s Just for Two package starts at $895, with a Rose Revival couples’ soak service. Take it to the next level by adding a “Ready for Real Love” hypnosis session or astrological reading based around compatibility or love and partnering, available in-person or virtually.
