This week, we've got our sights set squarely on Valentine's Day and the romance that should surround the day. This year, it falls during the work week, but, whether you get away the weekend after or a month later, here are some ideas to keep the romance alive.
#5 - Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Las Vegas No list of romantic get-a-ways is complete without Las Vegas. The Mandarin Oriental rises above the rest, from start to finish. Enjoy the glittering views of the Las Vegas skyline as you check in at the hotel's 23rd floor Sky Lobby. In your spacious and luxuriously-appointed guest room or suite, you can arrange to have champagne, chocolates & flowers awaiting your arrival, to enhance the romance. At all of their properties, Mandarin Oriental is known for their legendary service. Allow their concierge to arrange your evening plans starting with dinner at Twist - you'll love the food! Next, it's off to enjoy the romantic or the risque side of Cirque De Soleil (Love or Zumanity), both shows are perfect for a couple seeking a romantic evening.
