Travelling together is one of the best tests (and celebrations!) of your relationship, but that doesn't always have to mean jetting off to a far-flung destination as a testament to your love -- not that we would ever object. Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery via a romantic weekend getaway and breakfast served in bed as the perfect escape for just the two of you. So we scouted out the best North American hotels to plan an extra-long date night or weekend rendez-vous as Valentine's Day draws near (no pressure).

1. The Chanler at Cliff Walk

Retreat to one of The Chanler’s old-world inspired rooms to cozy up by your fireplace or sink into a butler-drawn aromatherapy bath with a bottle of spiced pear sparkling wine. Cheers!
