Denver Hotels for Valentine's Day

by Maria Scinto

February in Denver can be bone-chillingly cold, but enjoy a warm and cozy romantic getaway at one of the city's hotels. Several offer Valentine's Day packages featuring champagne, flowers and chocolate, and some even go mile-high with perks such as a couple's massage or a personal lingerie shopper.

Burnsley Hotel

The Burnsley Hotel, right on Denver's Capitol Hill just four blocks from the Colorado State capitol building, has 80 suites ranging from 520 square feet to a 1,200 square-foot penthouse. The hotel offers two packages for Valentine's Day or a quick romantic getaway at any time of year. The Suite Heart package includes a room with a private balcony, a bouquet of roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, chilled champagne and the choice of breakfast in bed or in the hotel dining room. Upgrade to the Romance package for all of the same amenities, along with a three-course dinner for two in the dining room.

Warwick Denver Hotel

The Warwick Hotel, also in Denver's Capitol Hill district, offers a complimentary car service to transport guests anywhere in downtown Denver. Another hotel amenity is Denver's only year-round heated rooftop pool. The Warwick offers a Discover Denver Romance Package in which couples stay in one of the hotel's suites, receive a bottle of red wine and a tray of cheese and crackers upon arrival, and get complimentary valet parking. A romantic dinner for two at the hotel restaurant includes two glasses of wine, a shared appetizer, two entrées and two desserts. At turndown, the hotel leaves a small box of chocolates, and the morning includes breakfast for two at the hotel restaurant.

Brown Palace Hotel

The historic Brown Palace opened its doors in 1892 and has been one of Denver's premier hotels for over 100 years. Awards and accolades include the AAA four-diamond rating, four stars from the Forbes Travel Guide and a listing as one of "Travel and Leisure" 2010 world's best hotels. The Brown Palace Luxurious Love package includes two evening cocktails, rose-petal-strewn sheets and breakfast for two delivered by room service or served in one of the hotel restaurants. Complimentary valet parking is also provided. The Royal Romance package upgrades the cocktails to a bottle of champagne served with chocolate-covered strawberries and includes a candlelit couples massage in the Brown Palace Spa.

Hotel Teatro

The Hotel Teatro was named the best Denver hotel for a romantic getaway in the 2009 edition of "Frommer's Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs." The hotel is across from the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and a theatrical theme shows throughout the decor of costumes, props and framed photographs from past performances. The Valentine's Day package showcases the hotel's romantic ambience at its finest: a bottle of Rosa Regale sparkling wine, two souvenir champagne flutes, chocolates and fresh strawberries upon arrival. Rose petals are sprinkled on the sheets at turndown, and breakfast is provided by room service or served in Primo, the hotel's heart-healthy Italian restaurant. Couples who prefer to spice things up a bit can try the Red Hot Romance package. This package still features the wine, the chocolates and the souvenir flutes, but also supplies a $100 gift certificate to a local lingerie store along with transportation to and from the store and even a personal assistant to help with lingerie selection.
