If Vegas is in your plans, chances are the Palms Casino Resort is in your budget. Partygoers love staying at the Palms because they're likely to run into a celebrity and can enjoy the dance scene at Rain nightclub, the sexy service at the Playboy Club and the drinks 55 floors up at Ghostbar. Deal: You can get 30% off when you stay three or more nights at the Palms in a deal from Vegas.com. I checked April 7-10, a Wednesday-Saturday, and the price came to an average of $83 per night pretax, or $287 total, with taxes and fees.

This Valentine's Day package at the Gaige House stands out because the inn is in a relaxing, almost-hidden crossroads tucked away in Sonoma's wine country. The 23-room inn in Glen Ellen has a romantic day and night planned with sparkling wine, a couples massage and a rose petal bath. The deal: The package rate starts at $314 per night for two people and includes accommodations, a 50-minute couples Swedish/deep tissue massage, sparkling wine and a rose petal bath. The Valentine's Day weekend requires a two-night minimum, but if you want to take advantage of the package for just one night, book it for Feb. 11. Queen rooms with the package on this date were $369; a king was $399, a studio suite was $469 and a Zen suite was $529.
