Every once in awhile, you need to get out of town and enjoy something unique a little further from home. Even though we're pretty far from Valentine's Day, it's never too early (or too late) to visit a romantic hotel that's known for its quaint and charming atmosphere.
Also, these hotels are unique and renowned enough to visit even if you're not coupled up.
Girl's (or boy's) weekend, anyone?
Here are the top five romantic hotels you have to visit that are just a little outside the city.
If you don't want to travel too far, the Hazelton Hotel -- situated in Toronto's chic Yorkville neighbourhood -- is a good choice if you don't mind forking over a little extra dough (some rooms cost about $600+ a night). One of the first luxury hotels in T.O., the sophisticated destination boasts "sexy, dramatic interiors" designed by Yabu Pushelberg's firm. If you're fancy, this space also offers an art collection and a private screening room. It's also the home of acclaimed chef Mark McEwan's ONE Restaurant.

On Friday evenings from 5:00-8:00 p.m., the hotel hosts an evening reception with hors d'oeuvres.
