Sure, Las Vegas might not seem like the most romantic city, but its Mandarin Oriental hotel might change your impression of Sin City. Book an Apex Suite with a killer view of the Strip. Enjoy twice-daily housekeeping, a goose feather bed, a modern glass-enclosed bathroom, and a private dining area. Snuggle in the complimentary bathrobes and watch a movie on the 42″ TV. Or, in the spirit of romance, forget about the TV and just enjoy each other’s company.
Enhance your experience at The Mandarin Oriental by buying its “Lover’s Toast” package, which is available throughout February. The package includes a private tour with complimentary champagne, two spa passes, and breakfast at the hotel’s bistro.

Newport, Rhode Island is a town famous for its yacht races, gorgeous ocean views, and the beautiful mansions that line Bellevue Avenue. The Vanderbilt Grace is an old mansion that was converted into a top-notch hotel. Relax in the spa or splash around in one of the pools. Enjoy fine dining at the hotel’s restaurants.
The “A Vanderbilt Valentine’s” package will get you two nights in the hotel’s State Room, a 30-minute “Chocolate Lover’s” class, a champagne breakfast, and a romantic dinner.
Greyfield Inn in Cumberland Island, Georgia
The Greyfield Inn on Georgia’s Cumberland Island has no Internet or cellphone service. That might make you a little nervous, but the lack of modern tech won’t bother you once you set foot on the island. Most of it is part of a national park, and the number of visitors is strictly limited — you’ll enjoy miles of unspoiled beaches and diverse plant life.
The building was originally built in 1900 as a private home and became an inn in the 1960s. There are only 16 rooms, so you’ll never feel crowded here.
The Conrad in New York City, New York
New York is the city of possibilities, and why shouldn’t you increase your possibility for romance by booking a stay at The Conrad? The hotel’s “VIP Valentine’s Day” promotion is the perfect way to indulge. It includes a helicopter tour of the city, a stay in an enormous suite, breakfast in bed, and a host of other delights to make your getaway ideal.
If you don’t need all those frills, you can simply book a room at this ultra-luxurious hotel and use is as the perfect backdrop for exploring the charms of New York.
Do you want to make this Valentine’s Day truly unforgettable? All of the above destinations are ideal romantic getaways, but you don’t have to wait until you arrive to get the romance rolling. Start out your escape with a flight on a private jet. There will be no crowds, no cramped aisles, and no crying babies to distract you from your loved one. Happy romancing!
