Let's talk about the bathroom first. In the suites at The Donovan, there are cocoon-shaped spiral showers meant to outline a person's body. For a more leisurely soak, there are also deep stand-alone bathtubs with enough room for two people. Now, when it comes to the beds, guests can expect 100% Egyptian cotton 300-count sateen Frette linens. At this point, there's no reason to even leave the room, especially when one can order room service from the hotel’s Zentan Restaurant. [Photo via Wikimedia Commons/AgnosticPreachersKid]

If you have to go with one suite in the Four Seasons, nab yourself one of the Presidential Suites. They offer oversized tubs and enough living and bedroom space to feel comfortable, but not crowded. For a romantic celebration, the Four Seasons also equips rooms with rose petals on the beds, a welcome bouquet of flowers, and embroidered pillow covers. To top it all off, champagne is also provided along with sweet treats, framed photos of the couple, and the guests' choice of music. Couples can also take a look at the Night Spa package, which offers a myriad of sensual bells and whistles, such as two 80-minute massages and a personalized Michael Mina dining experience.
