What better way to warm up during the cold weather months than at your favorite spa. Most spas at luxury hotels are open to visitors and locals, so there's no reason why you shouldn't treat yourself to a little rest, relaxation and hydration at your favorite spa. Think of it as a mini-day break, and indulge!

Here in Boston, The Spa is Mandarin Oriental is offering a Rose Renewal experience (perfect as a Valentine's Day gift, and available through the end of February). The Forbes Five-Star spa has everything from crystal steam rooms to heated lounge chairs and one of my favorite relaxation rooms in the city. The Rose Renewal experience is $230 on weekdays and $250 on weekends, and includes a 1 hour 20 minute Rose Indulgence Body Wrap or Rose Massage with a revitalizing exfoliation.
