Take this as our gracious reminder that you better start planning for Valentine's Day. Whether you want to celebrate love with romance, fun, or adventure, we've got the answer.
We'll kick things off with the most serious surprise. If you're ready to take things to the next level, the OPUS hotel has the ultimate elopement package. Starting at $2950 CAD (~$2175 USD), you and yours will be greeted by champagne and macarons in your stunning Signature Suite; complete with fireplace, wrap around balcony and jetted spa tub. Enjoy complimentary Jaguar service to the restaurant of your choice. Enjoy a romantic in-suite couples’ massage before your big moment, the perfect way to relax. At the time of your choice, your in-suite ceremony will take place complete with flowers, champagne, marriage commissioner and witnesses. That evening, celebrate your "I-dos" with a romantic 4-course dinner for two at award-winning La Pentola or keep things personal and enjoy your dinner in suite by candlelight. Sleep-in forgivingly late and enjoy breakfast in bed until 1PM.
For those of you looking for a less committed experience, at the Loden Hotel there is no pressure or rush as Valentine’s is a month-long celebration. Satisfy your Appétit For Love with the Loden’s French-inspired romance package including a 4-course tasting menu, breakfast, romance-sparking gifts, and a mischievously late check-out. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to whisk your special someone away for a night in the city. Couples who book the Appétit For Love experience will indulge in an exclusive 4-course tasting menu carefully paired with complementing wines. While you enjoy your meal, your room will be set for a romantic evening, with rose petals on the bed, massage oils, and massage cards to spark that sensual touch. As in France, food is a focus of any romantic occasion, so your stay will end with a decadent breakfast in bed and a mischievously late 1PM checkout.
With our mild February weather you can stroll or rent a tandem bike to cruise the Stanley Park sea wall. Pack a picnic or grab a cup of cocoa to keep your hands warm as you take in the calm of the ocean and mountain views. If a snowy escape is of more interest, try a snow shoeing tour at the Sea to Sky Gondola just a 45 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.
For a fun night out on the town, skip the traditional dinner and cocktail bar-hop instead. Try the Inception Negroni at Prohibition, a classic French 75 served in a coup at Royal Dinette, or visit the Lobby Lounge at the Fairmont Pacific Rim to enjoy some live music while you sip on a lounge favourite such as the Geisha made with vodka,strawberry, Elderflower, and Chambord.
