Make it an Overnighter for Valentine's Day

Hotel packages to heat up Saturday, Feb. 14 (a.k.a. Valentine's Day)

If your sweetie has been bugging you for a romantic getaway, why not kill two birds (no, not lovebirds) with one stone? With Valentine's Day conveniently falling on a Saturday this year, hotels around town are offering packages that will make you look like a regular Romeo.

More is more at the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, where not one, but two amorous packages in either guestrooms or suites are available. Choose from the "Enchanted Evening" offer, including champagne, gourmet chocolates and a knockout bouquet of long-stemmed roses (rates start at $595); or the "Heart to Heart" affair, starting with a couple's massage at The Spa at Trump, dinner for two at Sixteen (the hotel's fine-dining restaurant), champagne cocktails back in your room or suite and, best of all, a late check-out the next day at 2PM (rates start at $1,450).

At the elegant Sutton Place Hotel, the "Sweetheart's Package" will sweep you off your feet -- literally. You'll be treated to champange and chocolate-covered strawberries when you arrive, an in-room massage for two, a room service breakfast delivered the first morning of your stay and a late check-out (1PM). Rates start at $350, and the offer is available through the month.

Why bother making both dinner and hotel reservations when you can get both done in one phone call? Morton's The Steakhouse at Wacker Place has partnered with Hotel 71 to offer an overnight package including a three-course meal, a bottle of Chandon Rose champagne and a dozen red roses for your table at Morton's, along with accommodations at Hotel 71 complete with a box of truffles. The package is priced at $385 per couple; call Hotel 71 at 312-346-7100 to make reservations.

The luxurious InterContinental Chicago on Michigan Avenue is offering a decadent Valentine's Day package. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted with champagne and strawberries in your hotel room, where you'll also get to enjoy a 30-minute Swedish couple's massage. Your evening will continue with a wine, cheese and chocolate tasting at Eno, the InterContinental's onsite wine bar. Rates begin at $249 a night per couple, and the package is available throughout February.

If you're looking to get out of town, try Hotel Arista, a new eco-chic destination in west suburban Naperville. You'll get to enjoy the sophisticated surroundings with an overnight stay for two in a standard king or queen luxury room decked out with champagne, strawberries and rose petals, and breakfast the next morning. Hotel Arista's Valentine's Day package is $259.
