The No. 1 destination was Las Vegas, said Jeanenne Tornatore, senior editor at Orbitz.com. She said consumers voted it as the sexiest city in America, and the average hotel rates over the holiday weekend were $131 a night. "It's really reasonable in terms of affordability for the holiday weekend," she said.

But Valentine's travelers aren't just sticking to warm places. Many lovebirds will be traveling to snowy New York and Chicago this weekend as well, or at least they planned to based on the booking data.

Those still looking to score hotel deals this weekend can look to Denver, where hotel rates are about $133 a night; Orlando, Fla., (about $128) and San Diego (about $139), according to Orbitz.com data.
