Valentine's Day hotel deals
Fri Jan 20 2012
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather hunker down in a hotel room with a picnic than sink my money into an overpriced prix-fixe meal this Valentine’s Day. You can always reference last week's article on new and recently revamped hotels. Or, consider a few special VDay options.
Personally Yours Romance Package at The Talbott Hotel
It's coming up roses, literally, with a rose-petal turndown at the Talbott. Get cozy slipping into your two robes customized with each of your initials, or if you're planning to venture out, call up your personal concierge. But really, if the weather stays like this, you might just want to get extra familiar with your room. Rates start at $299 per evening.
Couple’s Midwestern Winter Retreat at The Peninsula Chicago
It's all about the upgrade. Commit to a minimum of two nights and enjoy an upgrade to the next room category for no extra charge. Perks are a plenty: 30% off spa services (excluding manis), complimentary continental breakfast (room service included), free valet and the chance to throw your hat in the ring for prizes such as a free 60-minute massage or dinner for two in the Lobby. Rates start at $360.
Disconnect to Reconnect at the JW Marriott Chicago
We're admittedly biased after experiencing the VALEO's Get Clear treatment the other week (see the write up in next week's issue), but this hotel stay starts in the best possible way: two hours at the spa with your sweetie with a glass of wine and a foot massage followed by a 50-minute treatment in the Clarity Chamber (think Turkish-style baths, massages, heated floors). Sate your appetite with an in-room dessert tasting and Champagne. Package rates start at $534.
