Reconnect at The Kensington Hotel

With busy lives in a chaotic world it can be hard to keep the romance alive. By the time your day slows down enough to connect with one another, chances are one of you is already asleep. And the chaos starts all over again the next day. 

But that connection you share is one of the most important relationships in your life and taking time away to nurture it is essential. Too often, we reserve “us” time for anniversaries or holidays. At Kensington Hotel, we believe every day is a great day to be in love!

The Kensington Romance Package offers everything you need to leave the outside world behind and reconnect with your special person.
