Extreme Luxury and The Ultimate Valentine’s Package Equals Perfect Romance

???????????????????????While women are running around trying to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, men too are looking to find a cute and sweet gift for their beloved.

Finding Valentine’s Day gifts shouldn’t be a difficult task because really, most women just want a thoughtful, meaningful gift and maybe some flowers. (and a nice dinner and dessert!) See? Easy!

But if you really have no idea what to get your loved one for V-Day, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

There’s never been an easier way to say “I love you” than with The Sutton Place Hotels’ ‘Once In A Lifetime’ Package. Forget the heart-shaped box filled with chocolates. This package contains Dom Pérignon, a Maserati, and a $100,000 shopping spree at Holt Renfrew.  What’s not to love?

The ‘Once In A Lifetime’ Package was designed to showcase everything passionate that Valentine’s Day has to offer and is available for a mere $500,000. The romance begins right away with door-to-door limo service. Upon arrival at the hotel, the lovers will be whisked away to the Presidential Suite, where they will be served a bottle of Dom Pérignon and hors d’oeuvres. As the couple relaxes with their bubbly, a white-gloved butler will ensure their glasses are never empty and will proceed to serve the couple for the next 24 hours. A six-course candlelit dinner with paired premium wines will then be prepared by a Private Chef in a private dining room. But the romance does not end when dinner does. In the morning, a champagne breakfast will be served in bed while the couple lounges in their personalized monogrammed Frette terry robes. A helicopter will then take the couple on a private scenic tour of the city that is sure to leave them breathless. To complement the hotel experience, the package keeps giving:  a private $100,000 Holt Renfrew shopping spree, a personalized Maserati, $50,000 worth of diamonds and fine jewelry, weekly couple’s massages, and fresh flowers delivered weekly to the couple’s home.

Time Saving Tips for Thanksgiving


Nothing beats the glory of a home-cooked Thanksgiving feast. From the joys of basking in the brilliance of your perfectly-cooked bird to the accolades and compliments from your friends and family, truly the turkey has a way of bringing everyone together…don’t you agree?

On the flip side of things there are also the countless hours of preparation that go into cooking your feast and the countless number of things that can go wrong. From not having enough time to defrost your bird to burning your potatoes and forgetting the dessert, there are equally as many pains as joys when making the perfect holiday meal.

That’s why The Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver has their Thanksgiving Weekend at Fleuri Restaurant. Come join us on October 7th and 8th between 5:00pm – 10:00pm for a perfect setting for your friends and family, you can savour all the traditional delights cooked to perfection by our award-winning chefs, without the preparation, wait time or (drumroll please) dishes!
