MANHATTAN—To celebrate Valentine's Day, W Hotels has teamed up with lingerie brand Kiki de Montparnasse on the "Ignite" package. Couples staying at the four W Hotel locations in Manhattan between February 1st and February 28th can splurge on one of the hotel's suites and in-room champagne delivery. The package also includes a car service to Kiki de Montparnasse's Soho store, where you'll head to the Couple's Romance Salon for a private consultation, a fitting, and 20% off Kiki collection items. And best of all, there's the option for late check-out the next day. [RackedWire]
