Not all relationships are created equal. Therefore, what makes for the perfect Valentine’s Day retreat for one type of emotional entanglement may not be suitable for another. And then there is the majority of us who are single.
To help you navigate those potentially rocky waters, here are three great getaways where you can discover love or your plus one can get a heart on for each other:
The New Squeeze
You’re still in that trying-to-make-a-good-impression phase, so the “Out & About in Philadelphia Package” from The Independent Hotel has you covered. This hip, design-forward property partnered with William Way—the city’s LGBTQ community center—to provide guests with an immersive one-hour walking tour of the Philadelphia’s Gayborhood, a welcome amenity, and a $50 credit to nearby eatery Bud & Marilyn’s. If that weren’t enough, for every package booked, The Independent will make a donation to William Way. Now you’re looking stylish, romantic, and charitable.
Jet your significant other off to paradise with a romantic weekend in Mexico. Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen is spreading love this Valentine’s Day with an exclusive promotion – a “His & His” (or “Hers & Hers”) romance package. Available with a three-night stay during the entire month of February, the package includes an arrival with sparkling wine and fruit; sensual couples treatments and massages at the award-winning spa, The Cenote; delectable culinary creations by the resort’s Executive Chef; and more.
Your Side Piece
Call him what you will,—your boy toy, your arm candy, Gabriel—the point here isn’t so much you need to romance him as you want to show him off. Parade your man around the pool at the clothing-optional INNdulge in Palm Springs. Guests who book a room for two nights (Wednesday, February 14 and Thursday, February 15) will receive 25% off the rate and a box of chocolates.
There, now you have a gift for him too.
Single. Very, Very Single
Planning to fly solo this February 14? You might as well do it in the city with the highest percentage of single residents—San Francisco—and check into the only hotel with a name worthy of your stature, Hotel Diva. Better yet, treat yourself to the “Sweet Stay” package with Ghirardelli chocolates and sparkling wine at check-in.
