Other top hotels for romance

But if you're gunning for a romantic getaway this Valentine's Day, you don't have to travel to far-flung, international locations. Instead, you might want to consider opting for Ohio — the Top Hotel for Romance for 2018 in the U.S. according to TripAdvisor is Belamere Suites in Perrysburg, Ohio. Belamere, which typically has a rate of $218 per night, beat out stereotypical, romantic accommodations like Park Avenue penthouses and oceanfront rooms.
So what makes Belamere so swoon-worthy to TripAdvisor reviewers? Couples can pick from a selection of suites, ranging from the Ultimate Jacuzzi Suite to the Grand Royal Swimming Pool Suite. And Belamere also offers romantic add-on amenities, like an Anniversary Package for $125, which includes rose petals in the shape of a heart on the bed, pre-lit candles, a restaurant gift card and two aromatherapy packets.
Snagging the second spot on TripAdvisor's Top Hotels for Romance in the U.S. is the Desert Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs, California, which offers a heated pool and spa among pretty palm trees and poolside fire pits.
