Every year, Toronto hotels dream up outrageously indulgent Valentine’s Day stay-cations. Champagne, chocolate and roses usually figure prominently, but, depending where you choose to check in, the rest of the details can vary considerably. We rounded up five of the best packages, ranging from a splurge in a Yorkville suite larger than most condos to a bondage-inspired night at The Gladstone.
The Hazelton Hotel
The package: Bespoke Romance Package
The damage: from $6,999
What you get: Two nights in the 1,859–square foot Bellair Suite, champagne, chocolates, a dozen roses, couples spa treatments, custom-designed in-room meals catered by One. Plus, the opportunity to purchase a $5 million natural pink diamond ring at the Louis Black shop in the lobby.
The package: Valentine’s Celebration
The damage: $600 for just the 14th; $1,300 for the premium weekend package
What you get: One night’s accommodation at the romantic country house in Cambridge, a special Valentine’s Day dinner with a live band and dancing, and a full country breakfast in the morning.
Trump Hotel Toronto
The package: Wine and Dine your Valentine
The damage: from $926
What you get: A dozen roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, a $150 credit toward dinner at Stock (you’ll probably have to supplement), a couple’s massage at Quartz Crystal Spa and, of course, a stay in a suite endorsed by the Donald himself.
Four Seasons Hotel Toronto
The package: Valentine’s Package
The damage: from $615
What you get: One night’s accommodation, a half-bottle of champagne, breakfast at Café Boulud and a special turndown service with rose petals and bath salts. Café Boulud also has a special menu on Valentine’s Day itself, but you’ll have to shell out extra for it.
The package: 50 shades of Gladstone
The damage: $285
What you get: The Gladstone’s package includes a one night’s stay in one of their artist-designed rooms, a three-course dinner, and—bucking the usual champagne and chocolates—a “Kinky Exploration Kit” from Good For Her, complete with bondage ribbon and vibrator. You’ll have to bring your own manual, of course.
