This Valentine's Day, go big or go home. If you're not going to get out the pots and pans and cook for your loved one, our market economy dictates that the best way to show your love is by spending a lot of cash. Here, below, we list the top hotels in town and their most romantic treats.
From plump ravioli at Culina to Roasted Scallops at Scarpetta, the Italians have Valentine's Day covered in Beverly Hills. Closer to the Pacific, get an Oceanside table and Oceanside room view at One Pico. Alternately, enjoy a staycation to Morocco downtown at Hotel Figueroa. FIG Santa Monica's MEAT Market from Chef Ray Garcia celebrates the carnal instincts in all of us while the W Hotel in Westwood goes so far as to offer a jewelry consultation for those who want to reset the past and move on.

Money is no object. Money is no object. — Daniela GalarzaRead More
