We know there’s a lot of pressure to make Valentine’s Day something special. Luckily, these fine hotels are making it easy with deluxe promotions to make your special day more romantic than you could have dreamed.

The Drake Hotel in Toronto and The Drake Devonshire keep romance in the forefront throughout the year. Their tantalizing Pleasure Menu offers toys of the decidedly adult variety. Opt for fun with the Pleasure Feather, or take things a bit spicy with Bondage Tape and the “Flogerella.” Over the Valentine’s weekend, you can up your romance game with promotions at both properties that include a one-night stay, a racy gift, and a bottle of wine or two cocktails.

Starting at US $233

Hotel Zed is known for its fun retro vibes. And we say there’s nothing more fun than some good old-fashioned babymaking. Check in for a “nooner” from 10 am-2 pm on February 14 in Victoria or Kelowna…if you welcome a little bundle of joy into the world in nine months, you will qualify for a Valentine’s Day stay at one of the Zed properties every year for the next 18 years! In a nod to inclusivity that we just love, this offer is good for every couple, regardless of gender expression, meaning however your baby finds its way to you…that counts.

US $44 for 4 hours with an overnight upgrade available

If you really need to up your game (perhaps you’ve got some serious making up to do?), book in at the Mark Penthouse for a cool US $97,126.
