Travelers looking for a romantic getaway have plenty of options to spend time with that special someone or give the gift of a vacation. Hotels are pulling out all the stops to put more heads in beds and show off their restaurants, spas (chocolate massage anyone?) and recreational amenities after the partial travel hiatus of the past couple of years. Whether you are planning a staycation or looking to take a big trip with the love of your life, these romantic hotel packages around the world could be just the spark you need.
Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston
Wanna pizza my heart? That’s the question Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston is asking romantics this February. Its Valentine-themed package includes an heart-shaped pizza baked in the hotel’s pizza oven along with a “potion d’amour” cocktail including Grey Goose vodka, lemon, honey and Prosecco. The special rate package includes a space-available upgrade at check-in, and guests can earn ALL loyalty points during their stay.
