Not sure about you but the thought of Valentine’s Day makes me wanna say, “Blah!”

Thankfully, there are some places trying to make it a little brighter for single ladies, such as the Sutton Place Hotel in beautiful Vancouver, B.C. If you and your favorite gal pal are looking for a place to escape cupids, sappy love songs and tacky heart-shaped chocolate boxes, book the “Be My Anti-Valentine” Single Ladies Package.

This “Be My Anti-Valentine” vacation package promises to give single ladies an excuse to celebrate without romance and consists of:

  • Overnight accommodation
  • Complimentary porterage
  • Two specialty drinks in Gerard Lounge
  • Build-your-own-sundae
  • Voodoo Doll (Hmm, what will you name your doll?)
  • One black rose
  • Unlimited in-room movies
  • Breakfast for two in-room or in Fleuri Restaurant
  • 2 p.m. late check-out
  • Cost:  The “Be My Anti-Valentine” single ladies package starts at $219 per night (CAD plus applicable taxes, based on double occupancy).
  • Package is valid between Feb. 10 and 14, 2011.

Book the package either by visiting the Sutton Place Hotel website or by calling toll-free at 866-378-8866  or  604-682-5511.

Don’t know what I’ll be doing this Valentine’s Day and unfortunately I won’t be flying out to Vancouver to take advantage of this package but I will be visiting the city  in June for TBEX. The last time I traveled to Vancouver was in 2006 and had a great time which included trips to Granville Island, Chinatown, Museum of Anthropology, and a visit to Gastown. In 2011, I’m looking forward to checking out some of the winter Olympic sites.

What are your Valentine’s plans?
