Paris may be the city of love, but New York is the city of sexiness. There’s enough food porn, chic wine bars and anonymity to put most couples in the mood to let their inhibitions go. If you’re looking to take your sweetheart to New York for Valentine’s Day, check out these hotels that are offering special packages to help electrify your romance.

For Couples Who Want … a Hot Night Out
Try the… The Room Mate Grace Hotel

The Room Mate Grace Hotel

The boutique hotel boasts NYC’s only indoor swim-up bar, which has a sexy club atmosphere with an extensive cocktail menu and a DJ who spins 5 nights a week. (If you also like to rock out together to live music, bands play regularly next door at Connolly’s Pub). The Room Mate Grace Hotel’s central location on one of the less busy avenues off Times Square is ideal for exploring some of NYC’s more iconic destinations, such as Broadway, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park.

Ask for the “Month of Love” specials any time in February and you’ll receive all of the Valentine’s Day necessities: a double room; 30-minute massage for 2; box of chocolates; bottle of champagne; use of the sauna and steam room; and — of course — rose petals on your table. The price without tax and tip is $425, and the regular price would be $810. (If you want only the above features and use of the aqua lounge minus the overnight stay, you can buy the package for $275). Email or call (212) 702-1643.

Shark Shoot

This Sunday at 9|8c, Hollywood photographer Mike Muller and his crew get up close  and personal with some of the world’s most frightening creatures. The guys travel to the Beqa Lagoon in Fiji, where 8 different shark species roam the waters. Mike sets out to photograph them all, even the elusive tiger shark, nicknamed the “wastebasket of the sea”  because of its reputation for eating anything … and everything.

Watch what happens when Mike’s crew attempts to take their Hollywood studio more of 60 feet beneath the water’s surface … lighting equipment and all. Mike’s tech team must find a way to pump 3,600 watts of electricity through long cables into the depths of the ocean, risking their lives for the perfect shot. Meanwhile, throngs of hungry sharks are ready for their close-up, having come to feast on the enormous (and bloody) chum bucket that “Shark Whisperer” Brandon Paige brings to the ocean floor. 

Check out some of Mike’s incredible photos from the trip, and be sure to tune in Sunday, Dec. 18, at 9|8c.
