Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) February 10, 2013
From local residents to international visitors, the Orlando area has plenty of fun and romantic activities to offer couples who are looking for unique ways to enjoy Valentine's Day together. To make it easier for visitors to find affordable hotel rooms in Orlando, Orlandoescape.com—the Internet's #1 site for Orlando travel—has updated its Top 20 list of Orlando hotel deals.
"February is a 'shoulder' travel season in between the holidays and spring break," said Sunil Govind, president of Orlandoescape.com. "And it's actually one of my favorite times of the year here in Florida--with temperatures warming up but fewer crowds to contend with."
Govind noted that one of the hotels listed on Orlandoescape's Top 20 Orlando Hotels page is the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, which has a full service Guerlain spa and offers couples getaway packages throughout the year. "The Gaylord Palms offers the ultimate couples experience for Valentine's Day, between the spa treatments, the fine dining options, and the fact that Walt Disney World is just a couple of miles away."
For couples seeking more of a night on the town than a secluded, intimate getaway, Govind suggests staying at hotels closest to Universal Studios CityWalk, such as the Four Points by Sheraton Studio City on International Drive. "While Downtown Disney certainly has its share of fine dining and live music, you tend to see more of a nightclub atmosphere with some of the Universal CityWalk, making it perfect for a parent’s night out," he said.
Some of the top evening hot spots that Universal CityWalk has to offer include
Emeril's Restaurant Orlando, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, Pat O'Brien's, Latin Quarter and Hard Rock Cafe.
And for the local couples who are looking for a night on the town without the tourist crowds, Govind recommends two Orlando area fondue restaurants, The Melting Pot on Sand Lake Road in the Dr. Phillips neighborhood and the Rocky Mountain Fondue Company in Maitland, FL, just north of the city. Both dining establishments offer an intimate setting and a leisurely pace as couples enjoy a meal for two with a variety of cheese and chocolate fondues.
"The Orlandoescape Top 20 hotel deals was developed with a variety of travelers in mind," explained Govind. "Whether they are looking a night on the town or a longer vacation, Orlando offers plenty of choices for Valentine's Day in a variety of settings and price ranges."
