Whether you’re too busy to book a romantic out-of-town getaway or you prefer a low-key day of love, we could all use a little help planning the perfect Valentine’s Day celebration. These hotels in and around downtown Dallas will help you toast your valentine in a way you’ll never forget.
The Adolphus Hotel
On the weekends of February 10 and February 17, indulge with the Adolphus’ Do Not Disturb package. It includes $150 in Spa Adolphus credit, which is just enough for two 30-minute express massages so you can get back to your room for more relaxing. You’ll also score overnight valet, body oil, $50 toward room service, and sweets and sparkling wine to toast each other.
The aptly named Retreat to Romance package at all Omni Hotels treats couples to a romantic turndown with slow jams and comfy robes, a bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival, and a $100 credit for food and drink. Cupid — the concierge, that is — can make reservations at Texas Spice, Bob’s Steak & Chop House, or anywhere else you choose. The best part of the package? Late checkout. Plus, from February 11 to 19, Omni Dallas’ Mokara Spa has a 50-minute chocolate-vanilla Swedish massage for $125 for singles, or $250 for couples. Or treat yourself to a chocolate lavender pedicure — glass of champagne included — for $55. No need to be a hotel guest to take advantage of those spa offerings.
From February 12 to February 16, begin your evening of romance with complimentary drinks (we suggest something sparkling) at the Lobby Bar, followed by a day of pampering that starts with breakfast in bed. That late checkout will come in handy after you decide how to use that $50 credit to the Spa at The Joule.
With three unique packages at the Ritz-Carlton, you and your honey will be properly wined and dined, and pampered and polished. Until the end of February, the Valentine’s Day and Bed and Breakfast packages both include in-room breakfast from Fearing’s. Those who choose the Valentine’s Day package will also sip champagne, be treated to a rose-petal turndown service, and score a free gift with any spa treatment. The Prince Charming Experience, designed to assist you in popping the big question, is available all year and includes romantic turndown service with a souvenir glass slipper (the perfect size to hold a ring) and personalized love note, celebratory sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries, breakfast in bed from Fearing’s, and late checkout.
Westin Dallas Downtown
Couples looking to pull out all the bells and whistles for Valentine’s Day can score the Westin’s Delight and Indulge package. The Westin will pick you and your sweetheart up from your North Texas home in a limo, welcome you to the presidential suite with Dom Perignon and chocolate truffles, and guide you through the Dallas Farmers Market to select ingredients for a special chef dinner. After a morning of shopping (with a $1,000 gift card), indulge in an in-suite massage before a guided walk or drive for a sunset photo opportunity. The next morning, sip mimosas during breakfast in bed. This weekend, filled with special surprises such as fresh flowers and gifts, runs $20,000 on the weekends of February 10 and February 17.
Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas
The Four Seasons’ Valentine’s Day package might be called All You Need Is Love, but the tickets to the Irving Symphony Orchestra’s A Tribute To The Beatles don't hurt either. Classical Mystery Tour will play all your favorites from John, Paul, Ringo, and George at the Saturday, February 11, performance. The next morning, couples can eat breakfast in-room or dine at LAW (we recommend the blue crab omelet or LAW Benedict).
Bonus: Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
Whether you’re traveling, working, or can’t find a sitter to celebrate Valentine’s Day, the Mansion Escape to Romance for Two can be booked anytime. This package includes Swedish massages, an aromatherapy bath, rose-petal turndown, and embroidered pillowcases with the couples’ initials to take home. You’ll eat well with a three-course dinner at the Mansion Restaurant, in-room sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries, and a $30 breakfast credit per person.
