Love is in the air–literally–as many couples take flight this Valentine’s Day, especially this year when this romantic holiday conveniently falls on a Friday. That is a romantic weekend getaway in the making. This year, combine your love of travel with the love of your life in a whirlwind trip to New York—a prime destination to enjoy the sights and some luxe hospitality. Here are five incredible packages for premier New York hotels that are passionate about pleasing their guests:
Penthouse Package at the Sheraton NY Times Square
This luxury experience is for the romantic couple who expects the very best. The Penthouse Package, priced at $15,000 for three nights, includes a stay in the posh penthouse suite that overlooks an expansive area at the heart of the city, including views of Central Park. The package also includes a two-hour cooking lesson with the hotel’s Executive Chef, Club Lounge access, and bottomless fine wine tasting.
The Plaza’s Romance Packages for Everyone
The ritzy Plaza hotel has three different Valentine’s Day packages that provide a romantic experience for many different situations, including Romance at The Plaza for couples, Delectable Devotion foodies, and Cupid for the Kids for families. The first for couples includes accommodations, chocolate truffles, champagne and keepsake champagne flutes, flowers and breakfast in bed. The other two packages are crafted around a culinary experience and fun, family activities to make Valentine’s Day a special celebration of love for everyone.
Loews Regency Toasts Love
Recently undertaking a $100 million renovation and re-opening just last month, the Loews Regency offers lovers a beautiful place to rekindle or enjoy that affection for each other. The package includes such delights as a selection of cheeses and bottle of Prosecco to enjoy in your room as well as a $200 credit that you can use toward a romantic meal for two, tickets to a Broadway show, or anything else special that the two of you like to do.
Real Romance Package at the Sheraton New York Times Square
When it’s cold outside, this is the place to be – with its cozy Fireplace Nook and Sweet Sleeper beds. In addition to these heart-warming amenities, the package also includes a $50 gift certificate to the hotel’ Landau Jeweler, as well as one bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates; complimentary full American breakfast for two per day, and late checkout.
Westin New York Grand Central Romance Package
In the Grand Central area of Manhattan, the Westin New York Grand Central provides location, location, location for the city’s top attractions as well as great amenities like sparkling wine and strawberries upon arrival; full American breakfast for two daily, and late checkout.
And, if you can’t enjoy one of these packages over the Valentine’s Day weekend, many of them are available throughout February so you can still make time for lovely jaunt to the Big Apple.
