From limousine shuttles to four-course meals to Ferris Wheel rides, below are 10 V-Day packages from around the world guaranteed to make you (and your special someone) feel like royalty.

It’s nearly that time of the year again: cards, flowers, candle-lit dinners, moon-lit walks in the park, and more-or-less crazy Valentine’s day hotel packages. We’ll give you a round-up of options to spoil your special someone with on February 14 soon, but before we get to those we’re throwing one suggestion in the mix that will require a little bit more planning (and perhaps slightly deeper pockets).
First of all, you’ll have to make your way to Singapore, more specifically Sentosa Island, and the luxurious Capella Resort. Once you get there, you’ll need $14,000 (S$17,999) for the “Eternally Yours” package, which you’ll burn through in one short, but hopefully memorable, night.

Yeah, the Bieb knows how to sleep around. After being spotted at the Dream Downtown's lobby restaurant last weekend, he found another, less scene-y spot for him and Selena Gomez to do a little dinner-and-a-movie action in a swank suite for Valentine's Day—except we're guessing there was a lot less "dinner" than "movie" going on, if you know what we mean...wink, wink.
The window is fast closing on ways to impress your lover today on Valentine's Day but you won't have to settle for downing a love potion at the hotel bar. Thanks to the last-minute hotel booking app, HotelTonight, you can actually stay inside a hotel--in a suite--tonight. And you can do it, without forking over thousands of dollars.
The Suite Heart Sale, which just began a short while ago, is offering frazzled lovers eager to please their sweethearts a luxury suite stay at the same price as a regular room.
For those who haven't downloaded HotelTonight to their phones yet, the app works like this--deals for tonight's hotel rooms show up at noon local time and feature three different hotels ranging from Elegant to Hip to Classic. But now with the Suite Heart Sale, you'll be getting a suite for the same rate as a regular room as well as a complimentary bottle of champagne!
For better or worse, today is Valentine's Day. And in honor of all the naughty business we know will be going down in hotel rooms around the globe today, we thought we'd take a look at some of HotelChatter's favorite bathrooms ever.
That's right. We've been serving up hotel stories for over eight years, and along the way, you can be sure we've done our fair share of hotel bathroom lovin'. So what are you waiting for? Click below to see our photo gallery!

BLT Steak at The Betsy
The Valentine's Day hotel packages have been running hot and heavy for awhile now. But with the day upon us, we though you might appreciate these last-minute options. Here are Three Tasty Hotel Valentine's Day specials being served up today:
1. BLT Steak and The Betsy Hotel
This restaurant (a favorite of ours for its pretty decor and meat-alicious menu) is offering a poem with dinner all this week--you can request one from your server although they'll probably offer it up when they bring your bread basket and water. Guests can choose from poems by Maria Rainer Rilke, Hyam Plutzik, Campbell McGrath, EE Cummings, and other lovelorn souls. They're free to take, and of course read to your dining partner at your leisure. Apart from being old-time romantic, the poetry idea seems to have sprung from the fact that the hotel owner's late father was himself a poet. (You can request one of his poems, too.)
On Friday, we shared a deal we found for a hotel room in NYC going for the very reasonable rate of $115/night on Quikbook. Now, we get that this is still winter and all—aka the slow period for hotels—but that post made us stop and think to ourselves, 'Surely there are other ways to enjoy NYC without breaking the bank on a hotel room?'
And indeed, when you're willing to get a little creative, there are.
Start with Manhattan's flophouse-turned-chic-hotel, the Bowery House. Rates here start as low as $49/night for bunks and $59/night for cabins, though honestly, you may as well bite the bullet and go for one of the cabins. You'll forget all about that $10 difference once you end up with one of those cute cubbyhole rooms all to yourself!
V-Day is now less than a week away and if you've planned on doing a romantical weekend in Vancouver with your honey but are clueless on everything else, then you should probably book a room at the OPUS Hotel where there's now a Cupid Concierge on staff. The cupid concierge even has their own email! (Cupid@OpusHotel.com)
This specialty concierge of love is a part of the hotel's Exclusively Yours romance package which has the standard love weekend amenities of bubbly at check-in, more bubbly in the guestroom, fresh flowers, breakfast in bed and a late check-out. The concierge will also set up a framed photo of you and your lovah along with a love note when you arrive in the room.
If you need help planning something a little more extravagant, the Cupid Concierge is the one to call whether it's to arrange a romantic experience about town, craft a handwritten love sonnet or plan a gourmet picnic with wine selected by a private sommelier.
The package starts at $295 a night (not including any costs associated with other romantic activities) and is available throughout the rest of the year. So any day can be V-Day at the Opus Vancouver.
Last week we rounded up some hotels for lovers this Valentine's Day but if you're not currently attached, that doesn't mean you can't hit up a hotel for V-Day. Quite a few hotels have put together some fun packages and events for singletons. In fact, we're kind of jealous. These are waaaay more exciting than champagne and rose petals. Here's where you can let your single flag fly high and proud.
· Four Seasons Miami: The downtown Miami hotels is hosting a "Lonely Hearts Club group dinner on Valentine's Day. Served in a communal table in the Hotel’s new restaurant, Edge Steak and Bar, the prix fixe dinner will serve singletons Love Sucks (stacks of east coast seafood), Burnt Bitter and Bleu (bitter greens salad, burnt almond praline, blue cheese and balsamic), Home Alone TV Dinner (whole roast prime rib, truffle macaroni and cheese and vegetable succotash) and the Broken Hearted Napoleon with passion (less) fruit sauce. The cost is $65 per person but the hotel says in case a love match is made at the dinner, rooms are available starting at $469 per night. Call 305-358-3535 for reservations.

Yes, it's a Leap Year! An entire day added to the month, an entire extra day for some hotel-lovin'. And the hotels are pretty excited about it too! We've hunted around for the best Leap Year deals from San Antonio to New York to London. Unsurprisingly, several of them overlap with Valentine's Day festivities—but as they say, bargains make the heart grow fonder...
Grand Hyatt New York, fresh from its recent $130 million renovation, is feeling generous. So they're singling out people who are either turning 29 this year or who were born on a leap year. While the 29-year-olds actually make out with something cool (free appetizer or dessert at New York Central, pictured above), leap year babies (anyone born in 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996, etc), as usual, get the short end of the stick. That would be a "free" Dylan's Candy Bar cupcake...-shaped tin (not even an actual cupcake!) from the hotel's 24-hour convenience store, Market.
With a purchase of $9 or more. Seriously. These guys only celebrate their birthday once every four years. Can't we just give them a free cupcake and call it a day? Rates from $309.

· Mondrian Los Angeles: The Morgans hotel on Sunset in West Hollywood is offering a pretty straightforward sweetheart package that includes complimentary upgrade, a split bottle of champagne, early check-in, late check-out, continental breakfast for two and free WiFi. Rates start at $315 a night. The offer is good from February 12-24, use code PKLOVE to book.

Rooms start at $319 a night for the hotel's Experience More package which offers a $100 hotel credit when booking a two-night stay.
