Spend your day unwinding at the spa together at the Ritz-Carlton Denver. The hotel’s luxury spa offers a wide range of services including the Couples Spa Escape, a private spa journey in which the entire spa shuts down for you and yours to have it all to yourselves.

Enjoy Denver’s beautiful scenery as you whirl your sweetheart hand in hand around the ice rink at the Downtown Denver Rink at Skyline Park.

Corinne, another buzzing downtown locale, is also offering a romantic 3-course Valentine’s special with the option to add champagne or hand-crafted “His” and “Hers” cocktails to your menu.
After dinner, take a romantic ride through downtown Denver in a horse and carriage snuggled alongside your honey. Take in the gorgeous sights and the glowing city atmosphere as you clip-clop along the streets.
