If you're looking for a Big Apple getaway, choose the Kiss and Tell Package at the Affinia Manhattan, which starts from $169 per night and includes complimentary champagne plus two cocktails and a dessert delivered to your room. Enjoy dinner and a Broadway show, see the glimmering lights in Times Square, or take in romantic views of the city that never sleeps from the top of the Empire State Building, which is just blocks from the hotel. Or, stay at a different Affinia Hotel – the Liaison Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. – and enjoy a bottle of champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, unlimited in-room movies, and a $50 room service credit for a meal from the renowned Art and Soul restaurant.
In Baltimore, dozens of hotels are slashing their rates from February 8-18 for Baltimore Hotel Week; rates start from $99 per night, and many hotels include extras like breakfast, shuttles to center city, drinks, food and beverage credit, and more.

For a truly romantic getaway far from a major metropolis, escape to the Belhurst Castle in the Finger Lakes Wine Region of upstate New York. Located on the shores of Seneca Lake, the historic property features renowned dining, a winery, a spa, and cozy rooms, many of which feature fireplaces and lake views. The Belhurst Fires Package features a bottle of wine, buffet breakfast for each night of your stay, gourmet chocolates, and a $40 dinner voucher in the on-site restaurant, Stonecutters – from $213 per night.
Don't forget that Valentine's Day weekend bleeds into Presidents' Day, which means you have a three-day weekend, and all the more reason to get away.
