Looking for a Valentine's Day getaway in the city?
Take a staycation with or without your sweetie this weekend by enjoying one of these package deals.
Style at the Park Hyatt Chicago (800 N Michigan Ave, 312-335-1234, parkchicago.hyatt.com)
The package: Whether you’re a single lady or simply want to leave your fella at home, the Park Hyatt offers a classic girlfriend getaway. Spend the day shopping downtown with personal stylist, and then kick back with a complimentary cocktail at the hotel's stunning NoMi Lounge. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a swag bag, but we’ll keep you guessing (okay, we don’t know either) on its contents.
Rates begin at $455 per night.
Live Green at Hotel Felix (11 W Huron St, 312-447-3440, hotelfelixchicago.com)
The package: Show your love for your sweetheart and the environment by staying at this LEED-certified hotel.

Romance, Relax and Revitalize at Dana Hotel (660 N State St, 888-301-3262, danahotelandspa.com)
The package: There’s no reason to leave to the room when you opt for this package. You and your plus one will enjoy pink sparkling wine, chocolate-covered strawberries and up to $200 of room service from aja. Sleep in late and wake up to the sweet smell of breakfast in bed. Let's hope the walls are soundproof.

Cooking Class and Wine Pairing at Omni Chicago (676 N Michigan Ave, 312-944-6664, omnihotels.com)

The special is only available on Saturdays, which means you can spend Sunday practicing your new tricks.

I Love Chocolate at Sofitel (20 E Chestnut St, 312-324-4000, sofitel.com)
The package: This would be a good weekend to embrace the notion that chocolate is good for you.
