Haven't made plans with your sweetie for Valentine's Day yet? Have no fear. We've put together a short n' sweet list of seriously sexy Valentine's Day packages that are still available to book. But the clock is ticking!
CANYON RANCH MIAMI BEACH: The oceanfront wellness hotel is offering several new classes to "liberate one's libido" for Valentine's Day, including "Position Yourself", taught by Dr. Yoav Suprun. The renowned physical therapist will demonstrate important strengthening exercises to help you achieve the most desired sexual positions. Rates for the hotel for tonight and tomorrow start at $630 for a one-bedroom suite with a city view.

THE REVERE HOTEL, BOSTON: This new spunky spot on Stuart Street is offering a Screaming Orgasm package which includes overnight accommodations and a private mixology lesson where guests will learn to make X-Rated cocktails with Boston's own Kirsten “Kitty” Amann, author of The Screaming Orgasm: 69 X-rated Cocktails. As if the orgasm weren't enough, a copy of her book, in-room chocolate covered strawberries and whipped cream and a late checkout top off package, which is priced at $499. Go here to book.
Given one of our HC crew just went on a mini rant about technology, we're giggling a bit about all these new travel apps that seem to be coming out weekly-blah-daily. Some of them are good and we frequently use them, but now the word "app" is becoming a pain in our "apps"..if you will.
The latest comes from Hotwire who has just released their own iPhone app for discounts on last-minute hotel rooms located in 3145 cities and 61 countries. So now they join HotelTonight and most recently Jetsetter in this category of mobile applications capitalizing on a hotel's unused room inventory. OK, so what makes this one different?
Well, first it's only available on the iPhone and iTouch, and more specifically, designed to work best with the new iOS 6 and iPhone 5. Ay. So, what, they are they anti-Android?
There are other tiny differences that won't really matter in the long run if all you want to do is quickly find a hotel room at a good price, which Hotwire assures you'll be able to do within 30 seconds using their app. But we're not completely sold.

When we saw Alyson Shontell, reporter for Business Insider had booked herself a room in SF for a conference this week, but quickly regretted her choice of hotel, we felt guilty. We should have helped her back when she tweeted out for hotel selections in SF. But better late than never, right?
Well, our first thought was, eesh. September is a notoriously busy month for all hotels—not just in San Fran. But it turns out there are some good finds out there right now, and Union Square isn't exactly lacking in hotel options—so when you do find the good deals, it becomes that much more exciting! For starters, take the Palace Hotel, an historic hotel located just a few steps from the Montgomery St BART station, where a King bed starts at just $189.
