Hotels have a magical way of bringing couples closer together, whether they’re married for 40 years or it’s their first weekend. And how could they not deliver romance? Crunchy sheets, stacks of pillows (even better if they are topped with a chocolate) and a beautiful room to call yourself in, at least for a while. For locals and visitors alike, New York City has plenty of activities for couples, from Michelin-starred restaurants and famous landmarks, to sweet walks in Central Park and along the Hudson River. Combine it with the right hotel for a Valentine’s Day, birthday or anniversary and you will be amazed. Each neighborhood has its own dishes that are worth exploring. Surf the early morning waves at Rockaway Beach, watch a drink at Bemelmans, or go ice skating in Brooklyn with views of the Manhattan skyline. We have selected 10 hotels in the New York City area for a romantic getaway to remember (even if you don’t leave your room).

The William Vale
This Williamsburg hotel is constantly changing to accommodate the seasons and cultural events in the area. Whether it’s an outdoor couples massage and ice skating in winter or lounging by the pool in summer, you will understand what all the Brooklyn hype is about (if not, don’t worry, the views of Manhattan are spectacular) . .
The Rockaway Hotel in Rockaway Park
Taking the subway to the Rockaway Hotel is a getaway with real escapist flair. Influenced by 1960s surf culture with ocean views, maximize a beach weekend without ever actually leaving New York City. For Valentine’s Day this year they are offering an in-room dinner with a set three-course menu, a wonderful way to make a safe celebration special.
Four Seasons Hotel New York downtown
The reissue of a New York classic is a lavish stay, especially if you book the newly opened Empire Suite (see picture), which has an area of 2,400 square feet. However, every guest should take advantage of the massive, marble-lined spa and pool, which occupy an entire floor of the hotel.
This former 17th century stagecoach stop, an hour outside of New York City, now has only six rooms, all of which are royal suites, plus a tavern and shop. GrayBarns just released a special “Mini-Moon Package” for couples. It includes a two-night stay at the inn, an in-room fireplace picnic, a bottle of champagne, and two fluffy Roette robes (the best part of any vacation).
Although recently renovated, this downtown Queen Anne building, built in 1881, has a serious history – Edgar Allan Poe published the Broadway Journal here. Start your day with a cocktail in the hotel’s nine-story atrium with a stunning skylight and enjoy a long soak in the rooms’ deep soaking tubs.
Gramercy Park Hotel
Humphrey Bogart got married here and tells you everything you need to know about the landmark of the Gramercy Park Hotel. Guests receive keys to the enclosed historic Gramercy Park across the street (a huge perk, even for the most jaded New Yorker). Browse through the hotel’s art collection and indulge yourself in the hotel restaurant Maialino – get the Cacio e Pepe, Ina Garten’s favorite.
If you ask a New Yorker, you’ll learn that Bemelmans Bar, with its mural by Madeline author Ludwig Bemelmans (the only one he did) and nightly jazz, is one of the most magical places in town. Comfortable to the hotel itself, an institution in the Upper East Side, just a few minutes’ walk from Central Park and the Met.
McCarren Hotel & Pool
Whether your love language is “rain shower” or “waffle bar”, this stay in Brooklyn is full of fun. In the warmer months, the saltwater pool is the place to go (it was designed by Fernando Santangelo, who was also behind the reboot of Chateau Marmont).
The Whitby Hotel
The quirky hotel, designed by Kit Kemp, feels like a British midtown getaway. Enjoy coffee on the balcony overlooking the hustle and bustle of Manhattan or watch a movie while you soak in the bathtubs. The “Martinis, Oysters & Jazz” on Friday nights are worth a visit if you can.
The Ludlow New York City
For couples who love to get on their nerves, check into The Ludlow on the Lower East Side. Don’t skip a meal at The Dirty French before heading out for the night. Many of the rooms have a personal terrace (a rarity in Manhattan), and all have downtown views that are best enjoyed in one of the windowed tubs.
