By Greg Mattson, ERV Editor - Updated: Dec 16, 2016
We're proud to present our unique and thoroughly researched guide to theme rooms in hotels, inns and bed and breakfasts across the U.S. and Canada.
Many hotels and B&B's today have taken on the theme room approach in an upscale way, aiming for the romantic travel market. Amenities in today's hotel theme rooms can often include whirlpool suites, flat-screen TV's, fireplaces and more.
Some popular theme room themes include Arabian, Polynesian, Roman, Western, Caribbean, Fantasy and 50's style rooms. Some are designed for kids, but our listings feature the more adult-oriented theme suites available today.
About Excellent Romantic Vacations Guide to Theme Rooms in Hotels: We include theme suites in not only hotels, but smaller inns and B&B's as well. Generally, they tend to fall into 3 categories:
- Loud and Bold Fantasy Suites with theme rooms that can be very "in your face", neon and tacky. But they're done this way on purpose, with nothing left to the imagination.
- More Subdued Designs often found in boutique hotels, which usually have a little more class for discerning travelers.
- Very Subtle Themed Suites and rooms, usually seen in both established hotels and bed and breakfasts. They can be rooms with art and decor centered on an historical era or geographic theme.
(Please Note: Hotels/Inns and their rooms and amenities are subject to change, so please confirm first with the hotel before making firm travel arrangements. All rates listed are approximate only and also subject to change. As these inns are chosen primarily for their theme rooms, quality can vary, so it's important to research the property thoroughly before making reservations.)
