The Strangest, Wildest, and Most Luxurious Valentine’s Day Hotel Packages
This time of year, hotels around the world get serious about going above and beyond for Valentine's Day, crafting spectacular (or spectacularly strange) packages that push the limits of luxury and, occasionally, common sense.
At Travel + Leisure, we love to sift through all the options —particularly the wild and over-the-top offers — to help you plan your most romantic getaway ever.
Some of these Valentine's Day hotel packages are decadent, others provocative, and all of them guaranteed to make you blush, at least a little. And isn't that Valentine's Day in a nutshell?
We love these 18 luxury properties — and their determination to help you celebrate love in your own, extravagant way.
The Dominick in New York City, New York
For some, love is so all-consuming that they can think of only one way to express it in full: skywriting “Will You Marry Me?” or “I Love You” over the Big Apple. Luckily, a new SoHo property, The Dominick, has already hired the plane. In addition to their in-house skywriting service, the hotel also offers special add-ons like helicopter rides and private rooftop dinners — plus complimentary upgrades for all Valentine’s bookings. From $6,500.
Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California
The ridiculously fancy Ultimate Lux Couple’s Package at this property’s spa is the perfect V-Day experience for couples who love to be dripping in diamonds — literally. A full menu of diamond-based spa treatments includes a Diamond Magnetic Body Treatment, diamond mani-pedi, and the intriguingly-named Diamond Life Infusion. From $1,900.
HarbourView Inn in Charleston, South Carolina
Recreate the romance of The Notebook — one of the most-watched, most cried-over love stories of the early 2000s — with the Noah & Allie’s Timeless Romance Experience at HarbourView Inn. (Minus the ending, of course.) The package includes a visit to an ice cream store, dancing in the middle of the street in front of Charleston’s iconic American Theatre, plenty of romantic dinners, and more visits to landmarks from the film. From $2,000.
Talbott Hotel in Chicago, Illinois
Throughout the month of February, this hotel in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood will help you relive your very first date with your significant other — or, at least, the good parts. The culinary team at the property’s 20 East restaurant will cook the meal from your first dinner before you awkwardly ask your boo if they want to get a drink back at your place. From $229.
Kelley House in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts
If you'd rather just get hitched, the historic Edgartown Inn — a much-loved stop for travelers since 1742 — offers an Elopement Package for those who want to cut to the chase. The team will help you set up a (somewhat) spontaneous wedding anywhere on the island, complete with flowers and a photographer. They'll even find you an officiant. Afterward, retire to the newly-renovated boutique property for your first dinner as a married couple. From $2,000.
The Tennessean Hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee
If you can’t stand to leave your best furry friend for even one night, Knoxville's The Tennessean has a package to help celebrate your love — for your dog. While you and your human significant other enjoy Champagne and long-stemmed roses, your pet will feast on house-made dog treats and a room service menu with dishes like grilled salmon and filet mignon (all under the doting care of a professional dog-sitter). From $528.
Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami, Florida
For those whose idea of romance involves Flo Rida: Valentine’s Day guests at Fontainebleau Miami Beach can be serenaded by one of Florida’s most famous exports at the property’s LIV club, which is hosting a once-in-a-lifetime dinner and show experience. There will be menus from celebrity chefs Michael Mina and Scott Conant, unlimited cocktails, and the romantic reverie of Flo Rida himself. From $549.
Henry Norman Hotel in Brooklyn, New York
This February, guests at Greenpoint's Henry Norman Hotel will be able to type up an old-school love letter at the lobby pop-up station, featuring a vintage typewriter, pretty stationery, free postage, and a bar cart stocked with cocktails and winter goodies.

Pulitzer Amsterdam in the Netherlands
If you love your significant other (but also love your Rolex) consider an opulent Valentine’s Day package at this recently renovated canal-side hotel. Among the many excursions and perks is a VIP Gassan Diamonds tour from a Rolex watchmaker — with included purchase — and a personal shopping excursion to the iconic Dutch department store, De Bijenkorf. From $2,140 per person.
Hotel Arts in Barcelona, Spain
Introducing the hotel amenity you never knew you needed: a proposal concierge. With this package by Hotel Arts, travelers can work with a staff member to plan the perfect itinerary for a storybook proposal — from the picturesque Gothic Quarter to the surreal Park Guell. After he or she says yes (which they will) guests will be taken around the city with a personal photographer before heading back to the hotel for a private dinner with string quartet accompaniment and wine pairings. From $6,215.
The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida
Treat yourself like royalty with this package inspired by the upcoming Windsor nuptials.

Five percent of the cost of the package is donated to one of Harry and Meghan’s favorite charities. From $24,000.
The Nines in Portland, Oregon
If your favorite books have Fabio on the cover, drop by The Library at Portland’s The Nines; this fabulous workspace filled with rich woods, sumptuous leather chairs, and more than 1,000 titles curated by Powell’s is getting a little steamier in February. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, guests can sip cocktails while perusing a pop-up library featuring everything from classic romances like Romeo and Juliet to vintage penny dreadfuls and contemporary romance novels. Add on their Luxury Romance Package for the full experience. Inquire for rates.
Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Yet another 50 Shades movie is debuting this February 14 — and the Pelican Grand wants to help you celebrate in the best way possible with their Suite Indiscretions package. In addition to three nights in their penthouse suite, you’ll get tickets to the film, al fresco dinners, balcony bubble baths, and use of an Audi A8 Spyder to go out on the town in style. They're also throwing in an Hermes silk tie for, well, whatever you want. From $9,999.
The Darcy in Washington, D.C.
Travelers with particularly discerning taste can take advantage of the designated caviar and Champagne butler at Washington, D.C.’s The Darcy.

And the best part — you can eat it in bed. From $169.
