In a perfect world, your sweetie would sweep you off your feet and whisk you away to some exotic location for Valentine's Day.  If you can't get away, here's some options closer to home!

With the recent "room boom" in Downtown Boise, its no surprise that each hotel wants to go above and beyond to impress their guests.  One of the ways they do that is through their impressive romance packages (which, in many cases, are available year round) that you may not even realize exist.  What better time to try one of these experiences out than Valentine's Day? You might want to book soon before all the great rooms are gone.  We're just two weeks away from the most romantic day of the year!

    The Grove Hotel

    245 S. Capitol Blvd

    As one of the first luxury hotels in Downtown Boise, it's no surprise that the Grove goes above and beyond with their romance package. Starting at $209 a night (depending on which room you choose,) the package includes a $50 for dinner at Emilio's or room service and a bottle of sparkling wine, champagne or cider. They sweeten the deal with four fresh chocolate covered strawberries and of course, the best view of Downtown Boise.

    Hotel 43

    981 W. Grove St

    It's no surprise that when I was planning a Fifty Shades Darker prize last year, that I chose this boutique hotel as the destination for the winning couple to stay at. Hotel 43 offers two different packages for couples looking for a little romance. Their Romantic Indulgence package lets you unwind in a Parlor Suite with its own in-room jetted tub. It includes two Hotel 43 champagne glasses for you to keep along with a bottle of champagne to fill them with. Satisfy your sweet tooth with the complimentary Hotel 43 chocolates.

    The Cozy Couples package is similar, but puts you in the top floor Capitol King Room with some incredible views of the City of Trees. The package includes two Hotel 43 wine glasses for you to keep. Fill those with a complimentary bottle of wine paired with chocolates. Both of Hotel 43's packages include valet parking for one vehicle.

    Hampton Inn

    495 S. Capitol Blvd

    Attached to a parking garage that you normally use when going to catch a movie, you may forget that Hampton's got a beautiful hotel in Downtown Boise. Their romance package includes a bottle of bubbly, chocolates, flowers and keepsake glasses for you to take home. Each Hampton location does something a little different, so you never know if they'll throw in a little something more for you!
