Romantic hotels in the U.S.

1. Rutherford, CA: Auberge du Soleil

The five-star Auberge du Soleil is nestled on a 33-acre olive grove in prime California wine country with infinity-edge soaking pools overlooking the vineyards. Each of the 50 one- and two-bedroom suites features a wood-burning fireplace, extra-large soaking tub and private terrace. But a few years back the hotel unveiled Maison Biarritz, four retrofitted guest rooms inspired by the South of France that tout open-air showers and heated limestone floors. Meander hand-in-hand through the Ma(i)sonry Gallery, an outdoor sculpture garden dotted with 110 works by California artists, then indulge in spa treatments that incorporate mud, minerals, olive oil, grapes and fresh herbs—you can upgrade your pampering session with a wine pairing selected by the Michelin-starred restaurant’s sommelier.

2. Miami, FL: The Setai

The vibe is beachy by day and sultry at night at this luxe hotel. The Setai seamlessly blends the old and the new, from the intimate waterside pergolas to the lobby, built from bricks repurposed from crumbling Art Deco buildings in Shanghai’s old city. The hotel includes 125 suites and three heated pools, one of which is flanked by a 90-foot bar. Sipping Asian-inspired cocktails from a chaise lounge with sparkling views of the Atlantic is what this hotel is all about.

3. Lanai, HI: Four Seasons Resort

This exotic branch of the Four Seasons is unlike any other brand hotel you've been to. This stunning cliffside property—a former pineapple plantation—has a number of guest rooms and suites, and yet manages to feel intimate with personalized touches for guests including sake tastings and mixology classes. Couples will love luxuriating on the tranquil beach, mai tai in hand, or participating in fun activities like a sunset sail along the coastline or dining under the stars at a private table for two overlooking Hulopoe Bay.

4. Perrysburg, OH: Belamere Suites

This luxurious hotel provides a pretty compelling reason to travel to northern Ohio. The adults-only property offers 35 private suites, each with its own entrance and carport. Inside, you'll find saucy amenities like bubbly Jacuzzi tubs, two-person walk-in massage showers, plush robes and crystal-encrusted fireplaces. And if you’re really pushing the boat out, opt for the two-story Grand Royal Swimming Pool Suite, featuring a private, candle-lit, heated pool. Oh, and you’ll even get breakfast in the morning—because you weren't planning to get out of bed, right?

5. Barnard, VT: Twin Farms

Twin Farms offers 20 suites and cottages—each with a wood-burning fireplace and screened-in porch—on more than 300 acres of woodlands and meadows just north of Woodstock. Though each folk art-inspired dwelling is unique—with hand-painted murals, maple and pine woodwork, antique quilts or four-poster beds—the Moroccan-inspired Meadow lodge is a particular stunner. It’s kitted out with a mosaic-tile fireplace, ornate wooden screens and a glimmering colored-glass chandelier dangling from the tented ceiling. Choose a vintage from Twin Farms’ 15,000-bottle wine cellar—we recommend the house champagne—then take a dip in the clothing-optional furo, a traditional Japanese soaking tub heated to 104 degrees.

6. New York, NY: The Greenwich Hotel

This five-star hotel in the heart of glam Tribeca is the epitome of pure luxury. And it’s just the spot if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of NYC. Featuring 88 wholly original rooms and suites—no two are decorated alike—the hotel’s accommodations are sumptuously appointed with items such as Tibetan silk rugs and English leather settees. The Greenwich’s most over-the-top suites, like the Fireside Corner Suite, feature celeb-level amenities including a king-sized bed, a separate sitting room and wet bar, an extra-deep marble soaking tub and a walk-in rain shower. It might even be big enough for two.

7. Cannon Beach, OR: Stephanie Inn

The oceanfront Stephanie Inn, located on the coast of northern Oregon, provides equal doses of stunning nature, heady romance and top-tier luxury. Couples can enjoy Pacific Northwest experiences such as wine pairing dinners that match local produce (think spice-roasted beets with delicious Oregon pinot noir), fireside massages in the privacy of your own room and cocktail-making classes. Tired of all the one-on-one time? Head down to the daily wine and beer gathering and mingle with other guests.

This luxury bed-and-breakfast is located inside a gorgeously restored 1892 Renaissance Revival mansion. Featuring 13 simply stunning guest rooms adorned with tasteful antiques and elegant textiles, the B&B offers enticing delights such as a nightly hors d'oeuvres reception and turndown service capped off by a plate of warm cookies. Couples can boost the long list of included amenities with optional add-ons like a platter of chocolate-covered strawberries or a dozen long-stemmed roses.

9. Newport, RI: The Chanler at Cliff Walk

Nestled among Newport’s Gilded Age mansions is this 19th-century wonder, a former mansion converted into 20 elegantly furnished hotel rooms. Each is unique and evokes a particular historical period or decorative theme; the Williamsburg Room’s style is post-Revolutionary America, with Colonial Williamsburg floral prints of red, white and blue; the Nantucket Ocean Villa’s harbor scenes and nautical design evoke the early 19th century on the island. Romance abounds at the hotel’s restaurant The Spiced Pear, as well as at the fire pits on the expansive seaside lawn where you can wind down as the sun sets with a tipple in hand.

10. Sea Island, GA: The Cloister

Built in 1928, this Mediterranean-style mansion located on a barrier island south of Savannah feels like its own private paradise. With 1,000 acres lushly planted with palm trees, it’s the perfect place both for couples looking for some poolside chilling (there’s three pools to choose from) as well as for action-oriented pairs who want to hit up its PGA golf courses or frolic along its five miles of private beaches. At night, relax in the property’s comfy rooms or suites, featuring vaulted ceilings, exposed wood beams and handcrafted Oriental rugs.

11. Nantucket, MA: The Wauwinet

This award-winning seaside refuge has it all: stunning ocean views, historic architecture and luxurious amenities that would charm the pants off of any vacationing couple. Located nine miles from downtown Nantucket, it feels private and secluded—especially in the off season. Over 30 guest rooms boast custom furnishings featuring hand-stenciled finishes, 400-thread-count Pratesi linens and a daily fresh arrangement of Nantucket wildflowers. If you like, opt for one of the hotel’s four cottages, with your very own living room with gas fireplace, a king-sized bed and a spacious bathroom. If you fancy your morning grapefruit with a slice of zen, then you’re in luck, too – because you can request yoga mats from concierge.
