Forget Room Service: Order Up Romance at 2 Hip Hotels


 Mg 6785 W Opus ResizedTwo hip hotels in Vancouver and New York City are offering guests special access to romance-dedicated staff this February. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, look to OPUS Vancouver’s Cupid Concierge, who’s tasked with bringing customized romantic experiences to guests on request – primed for those who could use a little help ramping up the romance department. Or, bunk down in NYC’s 70 park avenue, where an on-site Romance Sommelier is encouraging ladies to borrow from the British tradition of proposing to their fellas on Leap Day (February 29), with special month-long planning services available to help women pop the question in style.

OPUS Vancouver’s Cupid Concierge’s services run the gamut from providing simple hand-written poetry to orchestrating elaborate gourmet picnics complete with private wine sommeliers – nearly anything is possible, so long as 48 hours’ advance notice is given ahead of arrival. Best of all, the Cupid Concierge’s services are entirely free, with only the activities/items provided coming at cost. Note that while the program is officially kicking off in time for V-Day, the special services will continue to be made available to guests year-round. For the month of February, book the hotel’s “Exclusively Yours” romance package – it was Cupid’s very first endeavor to put it together  – which includes champagne, fresh flowers, a framed photo and love note in-room, breakfast-in-bed, late checkout, and deluxe accommodations from $295/night.

Meanwhile, 70 park avenue has rolled out complimentary “Leap of Faith” planning services for the month of February, courtesy of the hotel’s Romance Sommelier. Ladies can adopt the St. Brigid-inspired British tradition as their very own, and propose to their guys on Leap Day, February 29. The Leap Day proposal guidance services – or any other romantic inklings for that matter – can be discreetly arranged with the Romance Sommelier ahead of your stay or upon arrival. Rates start at $249/night.
