Love is in the air this month and we want to make sure you’ll sweep that special someone right off their feet this Valentine’s Day. What better way to show someone you love them than by helping them take a load off and completely take a break from real life? You don’t have to plan a huge getaway to an extravagant destination; you’ve got everything you could need right here in Alberta! Here are our top hotels in and around Calgary for the perfect Valentine’s staycation.
Hyatt Regency Calgary
Besides being perfectly located right on Stephen Ave. with incredible restaurants and activities steps from its lobby, Hyatt offers a fantastic couple’s deal. Add the Romance Package when you book a night or two with them and you’ll get some sizzling perks. How does chilled champagne in your room sound? And some delicious chocolate truffles? You’ll also get a welcome gift, turndown service, and a free full breakfast — all tied together with late checkout. Sounds like Hyatt has taken all the guesswork out of planning a romantic staycation.
Le Germain Hotel
Another hotel placed beautifully in the heart of Calgary’s downtown, Le Germain offers some other amenities that make it a top staycation location. For starters, you have no set check out time when you book from their website, so you can snuggle with your sweetheart all morning. You’ll also have a free deluxe continental breakfast prepared by the incredible Charcut Roast House. Speaking of which, you have Charcut Roast House right in the hotel, so your dinner is guaranteed to be unforgettable. Finally, there is an amazing spa. At the RnR Wellness Spa, you can book a classic couples massage, and then you can add additional side by side services so you have the perfect spa day to boot.
Fairmont Banff Springs
The iconic Banff Springs hotel is a guaranteed V-day win. Just an hour out of Calgary, you’ll get the most incredible mountain views in an ultra-luxurious hotel that will make you feel like a king just being inside of it. Whether you choose to explore the town, or cozy up in bed and enjoy the view, there’s no better place to celebrate love. This is the perfect pick for Calgarians this February because the Fairmont offers an Alberta Resident Rate, which can get you up to 30 percent off their best rates — lucky us!
Falcon Crest Lodge
A dream come true for the adventure-loving pair, the Falcon Crest Lodge is a lovely hotel in Canmore. Been talking about trying a new activity together this winter? Falcon Crest has you covered. They offer countless packages that include a room and different tours. Whether you’ve always wanted to try dog sledding, or just love a great snowmobile tour, there’s a one that’s perfect for you! You can also choose from a big variety of rooms and add-ons like breakfast in bed, so you can be sure that you’ll have exactly what you need to make the getaway extra special.
We know what you’re thinking, “This isn’t romantic at all, what?,” but hear us out! You can spend a night in some of the city’s most beautiful apartments in great locations, for under $150. That will leave you with about 50% savings to WOW. That is a lot of extra little touches to make sure that your girlfriend or boyfriend feels like the luckiest person in the whole world. It will also be easier to personalize the space since you might be able to arrange an early entry to head over beforehand. In case you want to fill the entire room with red roses and chocolate — just saying.
