Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday this year. But we're going to be celebrating for the entire weekend.

A February stay at our House puts you in one of the more romantic areas of the city. The sidewalks around here are wide, perfect for a hand-in-hand stroll. The local BIA puts the effort into things like beautifully lit streets. And no matter how long you and your love have been together or what you like to do, you’ll find something within walking distance.

Here are some romantic date ideas in our hood. 

A Romantic Campus Walk

Just west of us are the iconic grounds of the University of Toronto. And a walk through the narrow pathways is a treat for couples. The old buildings provide a gorgeous backdrop and you’ll find more than a few places to stop for a smooch. We’d recommend anywhere along Philosopher’s Walk, which you can pick up from Bloor Street to the north, or from Hoskin Avenue to the south.

Dinner and a Movie

Just north and west of the hotel is the Manulife Centre, home of the Varsity Cinema, which we can confidently say is the best movie theatre in Toronto. The auditoriums have all been recently upgraded for comfort and sound. The VIP theatres are full service and licensed so you can enjoy a glass of wine or two during the show.

Love is Love

Toronto’s LGBT district is one of the most welcoming areas of town, and we’re right on the western end of it. If you’re one of those free-expression couples, you’ll fit right into the gaiety of the area. The district is just as friendly to straight people as they are to gays and lesbians. You’ll find great shopping and excellent restaurants.

And if you really want to dial up the love

Spend the evening locked away in your room with some nibbles and bubbly from Constantine, our in-house restaurant. And don’t worry — the building is over 60 years old, and was built at a time when thick walls were par for the course.
