**Guest Post by the team at the Grand Hyatt, Union Square
In the hotel biz, it’s never too early to start planning for your ultimate Valentine’s Day surprise for your loved ones. We love giving just the right gift, but an experience will stay in your loved one’s memory forever. Dinner, bubbly and an intimate vacation or staycation is a fabulous way to celebrate, and the Grand Hyatt San Francisco offers a wonderful romantic getaway.
We recommend spending the weekend in Union Square and taking the time to reconnect. Enjoy time for just the two of you with the Grand Hyatt San Francisco’s Romance package, which includes a champagne toast and chocolate covered strawberries upon check-in. Cuddle in one of the newly renovated guestrooms and fall asleep with a breathtaking view of the San Francisco city skyline or our beautiful bay. Then wake up refreshed to a delicious breakfast for two in bed. A 3:00 pm late check-out leaves you and your sweetheart plenty of time to relax or wander the unique and colorful areas in and around Union Square.
While you’re looking around, you’ll find that chocolate lovers have many choices in Union Square. You can sample some of the best SF has to offer right here in the neighborhood with Ghirardelli, Chocolatier Blue, Leonidas Belgian Chocolates and Teuscher Chocolates all within walking distance.
OneUP Restaurant & Lounge at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco is offering a special menu from February 13 - 15. Start off the night with a lovely prix fixe dinner artistically crafted by Chef de Cuisine Joe Villanueva. Then, walk through the impressive wine library to the OneUP Lounge for a signature handcrafted cocktail or a glass of wine while enjoying live music performance by John Vicino, a bay area local singer/song writer.
Celebrate love with a view that will take your breath away. Bring your special someone to the Grand Hyatt San Francisco on February 15 and gain access to the 36th floor as we transform it into a romantic Sky Lounge. Indulge 360 degree unobstructed panoramic view of San Francisco skyline and twinkling city lights while sipping a glass of champagne with your love. To complete the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience, hop onto a classic San Francisco’s cable car ride, listening to the clanging bells.
For those who want to prepare a home-cooked meal for your loved one or turn the heat up in the kitchen with your honey, we suggest a visit to the Williams-Sonoma store in Union Square to learn a few tricks from renowned chefs. Steps away from our hotel, this west coast flagship store offers fun and interactive cooking classes such as date night cooking, Valentine’s Day cooking and wine pairing. As for the single ladies, enjoy a Girls Night Out Seasonal Dinner Party with friends and learn a few simple and delicious recipes and cooking techniques or learn how to make your own chocolate truffles, and use them to impress your crush.
Whether you decide to buy a gift or share an experience with your loved one, we’re sure you will find it all right here in Union Square.
