6 Over-the-Top Romantic Philadelphia Hotel Experiences for Valentine’s Day
A chocolate suite, a night spa and more to impress your S.O.
We all deserve a little pampering — perhaps this year more than ever — and Valentine’s Day is as good an excuse as any to treat yourself and your significant other. Whether you and your love are looking to relax and re-center amid wedding planning, or you’re scoping out the best way to pop the question in the sweetest of ways, these over-the-top Philadelphia-area hotel experiences will set the scene for romance. And if you’re looking for more ways to celebrate, check out this list of date-night restaurants in the Philly area, too.
Remember when the Four Seasons debuted its night spa experience last year and we all went bananas? It’s still here to entice you — if you’re into throwing down an absurd amount of money for an outrageous (but well worth it) experience. Couples receive private access to the hotel’s five-star spa on the 57th floor and a 60-minute massage, followed by champagne for toasting and a dip in the infinity-edge pool. You’ll leave with two dozen roses (from in-house florist-to-the-stars Jeff Leatham and his team) and monogrammed robes. Another romantic option: the Soak Above the Clouds package, a suite staycation complete with floral arrangements, candles and an assortment of bath and body treats. Spa package available based on availability with prices from $1,500; room packages from $1,705 and available through April 30th. 1 North 19th Street, 215-419-5000.

The Romantic Indulgence package is a one-way ticket to decadence. Upon checking in, you’ll be treated to a bottle of Veuve and a charcuterie board to savor in your suite. A rose bouquet, chocolate-covered strawberries, breakfast pastries and rose petals are included in your stay as well as a $150 gift card to on-site restaurant Stella of New Hope. The package is a $390 add-on to standard room rates and is offered year-round, Wednesday through Sunday, beginning this month. 50 South Main Street, 267-740-7131.
Book the Je t’aime Valentine’s Day package for a room with a king-size bed, one dozen red roses, and an unforgettable in-room dinner from award-winning (and 2022 Best of Philly-winning) French brasserie Le Cavalier at the Green Room. Think: oysters, caviar service and beef Wellington as well as a bottle of Marie Weiss champagne. The room package is available February 11th through February 14th and during Le Cav’s operating hours; pre-order is required seven days in advance of the reserve date. Prices from $899. 42 West 11th Street, 302-594-3100.
If you believe nothing says “I love you” quite like chocolate (and more chocolate), then this uber-sweet package is for you. A stay in the Chocolate Suite treats you to truffles, chocolate-covered strawberries and other freshly made, locally sourced desserts. There are floor-to-ceiling views and a bit of sparkle, too: Jewelry designer Lagos’s Heart of Philadelphia necklace is displayed in the center of a painted chocolate heart in your room. (Yep, you booked the room, so you get to bring the gem home.) Also included in the package is a multi-course dinner for two (and brunch the next morning) in the newly opened Patchwork restaurant. The offer runs February 11th and 12th, based on availability; prices from $1,400 per night. Contact Daniel Briones at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve. 1620 Chancellor Street, 215-985-1234.
The All You Need is Love package is like an ode to the city. You’ll spend the night in the Pennsbury Suite (a 700-square-foot space named for William Penn’s country home and packed with panoramas of Ben Franklin Parkway). Relax in Rocky robes (you’re near the Art Museum steps, after all) and try your hand at cocktail making in a private mixology class at Urban Farmer. The offer also includes a visit to the Couples’ Serenity Suite for an 80-minute massage, among other treatments. A perk: Check-out time is 2 p.m., so you can lounge and linger with your love a bit longer. The package must be booked at least seven days prior to arrival and is available through Monday, February 28th. Pricing from $1,500; contact email@example.com to book. 1 Logan Square, 215-963-1500.
There’s nothing quite like the sentiments behind this destination in the former City Hall Annex building, where some very important history was made (many a marriage was notarized here). The Valentine’s Day package features Spanish wine and cheese from Sabroso + Sorbo upon arrival and a $400 gift card to Le Rêve Rittenhouse Spa for a couples’ massage. The program is available throughout the month of February and varies based on accommodations. 21 North Juniper Street, 215-496-3200.
