If you thought that Valentine's Day was the only romantic day of the year, think again. It turns out that September 26 is National Love Note Day, giving all of you would-be Justin Bieber stalkers hopeless romantic poets a legitimate reason to pen sappy love notes to the object(s) of your affections.

Not quite the romance writer you hoped you'd be? Allow Four Seasons Boston to help. The hotel's Room for Romance package will place a love note featuring different quotes on the bed at turndown. These notes feature either quotes from a famous author, song lyrics and even movie quotes. (But please, use something more original than "You complete me.")

Of course, if you do think your flowery musings are good enough, the hotel will deliver a personal love note as well.

Did you forget to buy your sweetheart candy and flowers on Valentine’s Day, and have been paying for it ever since? Or maybe you only just met someone special and wish you could enlist Cupid’s help to show your love, but have over six months until you can celebrate Anti-Singles Day again.

Lucky for you we look for any chance to get all sentimental and mushy, and found out during a recent trip to Shanghai that Chinese Valentine’s Day falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, and this year it’s on August 6. We also just learned about two Chinese Valentine’s Day packages being offered by the Peninsula Shanghai.

Sorry, But Champagne and Roses Just Won't Do in Our Hotel This Year

January 21, 2010 at 2:38 PM | by | ()

If you are looking to get lucky on Valentine's Day, you have to be a little more original than booking a boring hotel package that includes predictable V-Day amenities like chocolate, champagne and roses. And while couples' massages might sound sensual and romantic, we're not sure everyone wants to invite a massage therapist to be a part of their sexy weekend.

That's why we've decided to call out the hotels that are offering better twists on Valentine's Day Hotel packages, from aura soma color reading to tandem bike rides, beach picnic baskets, water slide contests, strip poker sets and edible body toppings. Yes, edible body toppings.

Find out where you can get some naughty hotel amenities after the jump.

Newlywed Ivanka Pushes Rings, Dinner, and Nights at Her Hotels

December 3, 2009 at 12:29 PM | by | ()

Now that Ivanka Trump has gone and got hitched, she’s trying to entice everyone else to tie the knot, too. As you may know, aside from being executive vice president of development and acquisitions for The Trump Organization, Ivanka has her own line of baubles, Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, which has a store on Madison Avenue. And The Don’s girl obviously learned something about synergy, because she’s just announced a promotion that marries (har har) the Trump hotels with her diamond rings.

Customers who buy a ring from Ivanka’s Bridal Bar will also score a three-course champagne dinner and a night in a Trump hotel in Manhattan. Sounds like a neat little proposal package, sure, but we’re going to stop short of calling this promo a “deal.” According to the New York Daily News, the sparkers in Ivanka’s line start at $15,000. We’re pretty sure you could hit the Diamond District and get a ring for a lot less—and still have some cash left over for a night at the Trump International Hotel & Tower (where rooms start at around $595 a night) and dinner at Jean-Georges (there’s a prix-fixe menu for $98).

Montana Mountain Retreat Guarantees No Cabin Fever

It's hard not to blanch when we see a hotel package slapped with a price tag in the thousands, but reading the fine print does help to quell the sticker shock—at least a little bit. Even hotels known for their opulence are trying their best to go the bargain route, even if that bargain is set at $4,060, like the Mountain Romance getaway we found at Montana's Triple Creek Ranch.

Stick around and listen for a moment before you burrow your wallet away: that four-oh-my-god-are-you-kidding rate is for a five-night stay in one of their Luxury Cabins (normally $950/night, per couple), which are essentially mini-private homes with bells and whistles like a double steam shower, wood burning fireplace, living room, stocked bar, and a deck with hot tub.

Our Last Post About Valentine's Day Hotels

January 23, 2009 at 12:31 PM | by | ()

For some reason this year, hotels are going crazy with creating Valentine's Day Packages. Perhaps they are frantic about the waning economy and figure if you must spend money in these tough times it might as well be to please your wife. Or husband. Or lover. Or escort.

Whomever you are spending Valentine's Day with, hotels want you to spend this romantic day with them. The only problem is we're getting overloaded with Valentine's Day packages and most of them are pretty routine. We've tried to highlight the most unusual ones---strip poker sets in room, creepy love story writers, tent pitching and so forth--but we're actually getting pretty tired of photoshopping bright pink hearts onto photos.

So, this is our last post on Valentine's Day Hotels for 2009. And we're going out with a bang. After the jump, we've listed 10 Valentine's Day hotel packages that have caught our eye. Read 'em and get frisky.

If you would like your hotel's Valentine's Day special featured on HotelChatter, then you can simply join our site and become a member. That way you can post your love special in the comments below this story.

'Naughty' Love Packages at Miramonte Resort and Spa

Let's face it. When it comes to romance packages, chocolate-covered strawberries and champange just won't cut it anymore. Hotels need to get creative in wooing us to their establishments for some romantical downtime. Which is why the "amorous indulgences" at the Miramonte Resort & Spa outside Palm Springs, Calif. caught our eye.

The resort has designated the entire month of February as the "28 Days of Love" and a "naughty" package has been put together in honor of this month of love.

The NaughtyWELL packages gives lovers room accommodations, a 60-minute couples massage with custom chocolate body butter at the resort's WELL spa, the use of a private poolside cabana, a 30-minute Naughty bath experience (more on that), breakfast in bed and a 2pm late check-out. The cost is $454 for one night and $908 for two nights, plus taxes.

Obviously, what stands out the most here is the Naughty bath which is strewn with rose petals and lit with candles made of oil, not wax. The candle oil can then be poured on your bath partner's body and used as a massage oil. Yup. Now, we're blushing.

“When men attempt bold gestures, generally it's considered romantic. When women do it, it's often considered desperate or psycho,” Le Carrie years ago said.

That Carrie Bradshaw quest to fall in love and have the story-book perfect romance play out in Central Park still exists within even the most romantically jaded of women. (Yes, Sex and the City is long over and passe, but this HotelChatterer finally saw the flick so please, bare with.) Manhattan's Upper West Side spot On the Ave Hotel takes the quintessential cheese factor and dolls it up for a romantic getaway for you and your Big by offering you the faboo services of the OTA Romance Concierge.

Oooh, Scandalous :: Run Away With Your Husband at the Amora Jamison Hotel

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 11 Jamison Street, Sydney, Australia, 2000
October 8, 2008 at 10:50 AM | by | ()

T+L Magazine named the Amore Hotel Jamison the best Sydney hotel last year so we figured we should find out what the fuss is about. Although, if you recall those listings aren't always quite accurate. Nevertheless, this hotel is pretty luxurious looking place, not small (415 rooms) and it's smack-bang in the middle of the city.

But what makes us crack up is the names they've come up with for some of their packages. Our favorite: "Run Away With Your Husband". It's a one-night package that includes a deluxe room, dinner in their Charr Restaurant and breakfast in the Gallery Restaurant the next morning.

Unlike their "Amora Affair" package, which includes strawberries, champagne and chocolate and a late check-out, the "Husband" package is plain and simple and not too romantic. Just like real-life husbands! (Har, har.)

And it's also available only on Friday or Saturday nights while you can have the Affair any night of the week. Just in case you are thinking of running away with your husband (presumably it's always wives who make the booking): it'll cost you A$299 (US$220) for weekends in the next few weeks, rising to A$329 (US$245) as summer approaches.

Palm Springs Area Hotel Guide: The Parker Returns to the Small Screen with 'The Bachelorette'

The Parker Palm Springs is returning to the small screen again tonight but fortunately it is only for one night and has nothing to do with its ill-fated reality show Welcome to the Parker.

Instead the Parker will be the back-drop for the reality show The Bachelorette featuring Deanna Pappas. The show is on tonight at 8pm on ABC. And the hotel is of course taking advantage of such prime product placement by offering guests a "Bachelorette" Package.

Will he get a rose, will he not? Ahh... the drama. For all of you who wish you were Deanna or had a chance to date Deanna, we've got the perfect solution. Pretend!!!

As seen on ABC's "Bachelorette," Deanna and her men enjoyed the Parker Palm Springs and now you can too. Indulge in a night in one of our villas and wake up to breakfast for two on your patio. Then go and strut your stuff poolside and impress "her or him" with your croquet skills. We know who the true winner is!

The package is good from now through September 16th at the price of $495 a night. Roses not included. Nor are a gaggle of men from which you can choose to spend the night. Click here to book.

Is Your Relationship Worth the $8,000 for a Couples Retreat at the Tides Riviera Maya?

Your significant other is going to be maaaaadddd if you say no to this retreat.

Like most couples chained to each for more than a decade, our relationship could stand a tune-up. And so can we. And while a romantic and spiritually enlightening package called The Art of Re-Connecting: A Couple's Retreat at the The Tides Riviera Maya sounds dreamy, it'll remain that way for us. A dream.

It is totally worth it if you and your special someone have an extra $7,460 laying around the house. It's on the Mayan Riviera amidst tropical forests and pearly-white beaches, first of all. With a luxurious six-night stay at an exclusive resort, number two. And it comes complete with your own private 1,000 sq. ft. palapos (translation: a kick-ass villa).
