Hot List: Hotels to Staycation at this Valentine’s Day
Flowers, chocolates, and cards are all very nice. What’s better? Spending 48 hours under hotel sheets. Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with your partner, riding solo, or with friends this V-Day – take some time to enjoy a romantic staycation. See below for a few of our favorites.
There are many places to turn the lights down and get in the mood around NYC, but our pick is the NoMad Hotel. Why? The entire space is designed to feel like a Beaux Arts French apartment – complete with warm leather couches, a bi-level library, and in-room claw-foot tubs. We’d recommend booking an Atelier room for views and a romantic soak. The cocktail program going on at the hotel bar is second-to-none, and, of course, you can’t forget Daniel Humm’s Michelin star restaurant. You won’t have to leave the hotel all weekend.
This design-centric hotel is eclectic in all the right ways. The bright wallpaper perfectly contrasts the modern furniture. We love the rooftop lounge, where you can cozy up with whomever you please around a firepit, cocktail in hand. Proper also boasts one of our favorite hotel lobbies in SF. Perfect for morning coffee and getting work out of the way, so that you can focus on what matters.
This boutique hotel is covered in warm pink and blue hues, warm velvet textures, and beautiful Italian furniture. If that doesn’t sound romantic enough, their beautiful bar stays open until 1am for out-of-room romance. If you are trying to stay in a robe and under the sheets all weekend – not a problem. The food and room service is top notch.
If you consider boats and the whole maritime thing to be romantic, then this is your place. CPH is a floating hotel in the Christianshavn area of Copenhagen. Wake up to the sound of birds, waves, and take your morning coffee on-deck. The rooms are designed in typical Scandinavian fashion, but the simplicity is what is so romantic about the place to begin with. Take a drink at their bar, which has floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the water. If you’re wanting a unique take on a staycation – this is your bet.
Is there anywhere more perfect for a romantic staycation than Paris? This sexy Parisian hotel is everything you want when it comes to slipping into something a little more comfortable for VDay. In-room bathtubs, view of the city, beautiful linens, and eclectic artwork all add to the vibe of this place. Open your floor length windows to let in some fresh air in the AM, and head down to the ground floor in the PM for strong drinks and great DJs.
The design of this hotel is truly theatrical. Bright reds, deep blacks, and warm leather are seen in each room. The beds look out onto amazing views of the city, but if you need some time outside the room they have tango lessons downstairs and a first class spa. On the warmer days, enjoy the rooftop pool and sunset cocktails.
