One of Toronto’s staples is The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen St. W., Toronto ON) and one of the most luxurious accommodation options in the city gets even more glam in February.

The Drake’s Pillow Fight Hotel Package runs until February 28 and includes a special personalized pillow invite being sent to your special someone that asks them to share a night of fun with you in one of the Drake Hotel’s unique Crash Pads. The rooms are equipped with Valentine’s Day-themed treats, special gift from Come As You Are, and provocative Pleasure Menus where you can choose from a selection of toys. Packages start at $249/night. Call 416-531-5042 to book.

The hotel also features a special Valentine’s Menu from February 14-16 where you can reserve a book and enjoy cocktails and dishes designed to be shared with your girlfriend/boyfriend. These include the Lobster Fricassee (with roast shallot and oyster mushrooms, hand-cut fettucini carbonara, Perth bacon, artichokes, and grilled rapini) for $55. There’s also Drake’s Sky Yard when couples can cuddle by the fire pit and roast S’mores while enjoying specialty drinks like Love Potions (made out of bourbon, ginger liqueur, pear nectar , cinnamon syrup) or Pining For You (made out of cedar and pine-infused vodka, lemon juice, spiced syrup and egg white).

If you prefer the party scene, there are great options there as well.
