Extended Love Day Travel Deals

February is a notoriously slow period for the hotel industry.  This translates into a golden opportunity for frugal travelers looking to save a bundle on a much-needed romantic escape.  Just because Valentine’s Day is over, doesn’t mean you can’t sneak away with your sweetie on a luxurious weekend trip without breaking the bank.

Many hotels around the country are extending their Love Day-themed deals through the end of the month, including:

Coronado Island Marriott Resort and Spa:  The upscale property is offering a money-saving deal dubbed the “Coronado Island Romance” package.  It features deluxe accommodations in a bay view room, champagne upon arrival, in-room breakfast, tennis and health club access and complimentary bike rentals for two with rates starting at just $364. The picturesque resort is surrounded by lush landscaping and lagoons and breathtaking views of San Diego Bay and the downtown skyline.

The Commons Hotel:  Heat up your weekend getaway in chilly Minneapolis with a red-hot “Pen Your Own Prose” package deal offered by the Commons Hotel.  For just $699, you and your sweetheart will be treated to accommodations in a one-bedroom suite, $100 gift card to the Beacon Public House, chocolate turn-down service, chocolate covered strawberries, a couples’ stationary class at the Minneapolis Center for Book Arts, massages at Aveda Spa, a bottle of champagne, and Love Mixology lessons.  Given that the suite alone costs nearly $300, getting the extras, including the $100 gift card is a real bonus.

The Mining Exchange:  The “Suites and Sweet” package deal offered by this Wyndham Grand Collection property in Colorado Springs, Colorado, includes accommodations in a Junior Suite, gourmet chocolates, a $50 dining credit, a bottle of wine, and late check-out for just $199.

Westlake Village Inn:  Located in quaint Westlake, California, the Inn is running a “Sweet Escape” package deal complete with a deluxe room, chocolates, champagne, and dessert for only $189.
