It’s been a hard winter—both in terms of the windchill and the COVID-19 situation. It’s not the easiest time to set up a romantic Valentine’s Day gesture, but it’s a good time to show the special people in your life how much you care.

Whether Valentine’s Day is a chance to spoil yourself or set up a romantic treat, here’s some of your best options for a Toronto Valentine’s staycation that feels like a real escape.

You don’t need to go far for your Valentine’s getaway

If staring at the same familiar walls doesn’t make you feel romantic—well, you’re not exactly alone. But it’s not too hard to find a change of scene and feel loved while keeping things COVID-safe.

Toronto’s famously a city of neighbourhoods—which means we never have to go far to find a whole new landscape. If you’re a downtown-dweller, the winter hiking trails at Mimico Creek and the Humber River can get you outside into nature, not far from Parc Nuvo. And if you’ve been aching for a little city action, the lake views and city lights downtown can set up a weekend of nice meals, great Instagram shots, and adventure.

Wherever you land, a DelSuites booking comes with soft sheets, fluffy towels, and warm, luxurious furniture that’s great for cuddling up together. Take a luxuriant hot bath in our deep soaker or Jacuzzi bathtubs, or enjoy sweeping balcony views of Toronto’s city lights.

A romantic dinner delivered to your door

Pandemic restrictions don’t have to mean missing an incredible Valentine’s dinner—or a catered breakfast. Toronto’s local dining scene has been getting creative with the limits of home delivery for two years—and they’re going all-out for Valentine’s.

High-end wine bar Grey Gardens offers full five-course meals for pickup a short walk from The Livmore. A stay at Qwest puts you down the block from Momofuku Toronto, which offers both takeout, delivery, and meal kits if you want to whip something up yourself—with a little help. Toronto chocolatier Soma is offering virtual tastings of both spirits and chocolate kits.

Even local specialty stores are offering serious options for Valentine’s Day. Local sustainable fish store Hooked is lining up three-course dinner specials–as well as oysters, caviar, and more. And for breakfast, the all-online Matchmaker Coffee can set up offering a DIY tasting tour of Canadian coffees—complete with flavour notes.

Our fully-equipped kitchens mean you can set the mood with fine plates, not takeout containers, or whip up a last-minute surprise dessert if you’re in the mood. Pack a few candlesticks and your best playlist, and you’re a restaurant built for two.

Do your Toronto Valentine’s staycation your way

Romance is personal—literally. For some people, it’s flowers, gifts, and fanfare; for some, it’s chocolate cake and Shark Week. And that means a little gesture, if it makes you feel heard and loved, can go a long way.

If your ideal Valentine’s weekend is keeping it low-key: our full premium cable packages and cozy couches let you curl up together for a movie night. If it’s big, bold, and classic, our building concierges can take delivery of as much chocolate and flowers as you need.

You can also book our buildings’ convenient—and romantic—amenities. Go for an evening swim at Ten York, enjoy the spa-grade saunas at Element and Republic, or take in the panoramic city view at The Livmore.

Whatever’s on your mind, our Guest Services team can help you put it together. With a little ingenuity, all you’ll have to do is open the door.
