Valentine’s Day Getaways in New York City — It’s Not Too Late to Book!

New York is rich in hotels that we New Yorkers never experience.  Why not try one of these packages for a different and really cool Valentine’s Day (or Valentine’s Day gift)?

Kimptons 70 Park Avenue HotelFor the on-again-off-again couple looking to rekindle the romance or just book a sexy rendezvous, Kimpton’s 70 park avenue has you covered with its “Exes and Ohhs” Valentine’s Day package.  Guests receive two welcome Hot and Toddied cocktails at the hotel’s adjacent silverleaf tavern to help set the mood before retreating for a two-night escape in one of 70 park’s cozy and intimate guestrooms.  Love birds will also receive two tickets to a three-course dinner and burlesque show to help add to this raunchy “staycation” weekend.  For additional seductive fun, the hotel’s on-site love doctor has a specially curated list of sensual activities to spice up the stay, from a sexy boudoir shoot to an in-room couples massage and chocolate-making classes. Available from February 13 – February 16. Priced starting at $862 for two nights’ minimum.  http://www.70parkave.com
