Two hip hotels in Vancouver and New York City are offering guests special access to romance-dedicated staff this February. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, look to OPUS Vancouver’s Cupid Concierge, who's tasked with bringing customized romantic experiences to guests on request – primed for those who could use a little help ramping up the romance department. Or, bunk down in NYC’s 70 park avenue, where an on-site Romance Sommelier is encouraging ladies to borrow from the British tradition of proposing to their fellas on Leap Day (February 29), with special month-long planning services available to help women pop the question in style.
OPUS Vancouver’s Cupid Concierge’s services run the gamut from providing simple hand-written poetry to orchestrating elaborate gourmet picnics complete with private wine sommeliers – nearly anything is possible, so long as 48 hours’ advance notice is given ahead of arrival. Best of all, the Cupid Concierge's services are entirely free, with only the activities/items provided coming at cost. Note that while the program is officially kicking off in time for V-Day, the special services will continue to be made available to guests year-round. For the month of February, book the hotel’s "Exclusively Yours" romance package – it was Cupid’s very first endeavor to put it together – which includes champagne, fresh flowers, a framed photo and love note in-room, breakfast-in-bed, late checkout, and deluxe accommodations from $295/night. vancouver.opushotel.com
Meanwhile, 70 park avenue has rolled out complimentary “Leap of Faith” planning services for the month of February, courtesy of the hotel's Romance Sommelier. Ladies can adopt the St. Brigid-inspired British tradition as their very own, and propose to their guys on Leap Day, February 29. The Leap Day proposal guidance services – or any other romantic inklings for that matter – can be discreetly arranged with the Romance Sommelier ahead of your stay or upon arrival. Rates start at $249/night. www.70parkave.com
