Sometimes, you just want to chill in a hotel room with your bae. Whether it's romantic or not, it doesn't matter. However, romance is definitely a key to a relationship and booking a hotel room for just the two of you is a great way to do that.
Whether you're drinking wine and talking all night, watching Netflix until you fall asleep, or if it's a place to crash after a night out in the market, you'll love all of these 7 places. You don't have to leave the city to have a getaway–you'll see after booking a room at one of these hotels!
1. Lord Elgin // 100 Elgin Street
Lord Elgin just went through a huge renovation, and they're back and better than ever. This hotel is in the heart of downtown, and is walking distance from everything you need.
