Hilton Grand Vacations Suites on International Drive - Even driving up to this huge Orlando resort after dark is romantic and impressive, all lit up with twinkling white lights surrounding the palm trees. Reminiscent of Tuscany in its design and decor, this Hilton consists of several buildings surrounding a lake and pool area, with a scenic walking paths winding around the edge.
We stayed in a 1 Bedroom Whirlpool suite with separate bedroom and full kitchen. It was clean, the kitchen well-stocked with utensils, and there was a washer and dryer for guest use.

Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Beach - this Marriott hotel is an excellent choice for an inexpensive beachfront hotel in Ft. Lauderdale suitable for anniversary and honeymoon getaways in South Florida. Amenities include rooms and suites with ocean view, outdoor sun deck, pool & bar, and on-site dining. 2016 Rating* for Romantic Ft. Lauderdale Beach Hotels: 81% of Couples Rated it Excellent/Very Good. (440 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort Lauderdale FL 954-524-8733)
The Betsy South Beach - while any hotel in Miami Beach with "Ocean Drive" in the address could be romantic, a stay at the Betsy is truly special. Check in and discover the tropical decor in the rooms with ocean views, and then head upstairs to their Ocean Deck roof-top dining spot, which has to be one of the most romantic in all of South Beach. 2016 Rating* for Romantic Miami Beach Hotels: 90% of Couples Rated it Excellent/Very Good.

Cannery Pier Hotel, Astoria, OR - such a cool idea, converting an old cannery into a boutique hotel! The Cannery Pier really does it well, with terrific rooms outfitted with luxury tubs, hardwood floors, fireplaces and balconies that put you right out over the Columbia River.
They've got a couple of free rides that you'll love: brightly-colored bicycles from the 1950's, or a romantic ride into town in a chauffeur-driven 1939 Buick. 2016 Rating* for Romantic Astoria OR Hotels: 96% of Couples Rated it Excellent/Very Good. (No. 10 Basin St, Astoria OR 503-325-4996)
Featured Inn: French Quarter Inn
French Quarter Inn, Charleston, SC - you can't imagine a better inn in a better location, and in a better small city than this.
Charming and luxurious, the French Quarter Inn is just steps away from a compact display of the best that Southern U.S. culture has to offer. Everyone from valet to front desk to housekeeping was friendly and helpful, and in addition to their terrific breakfasts, there's wine and appetizers every evening at 5 and fresh baked cookies at 8.

Featured Hotel: Fairmont Pacific Rim
Fairmont Pacific Rim, Vancouver, BC - time to go big city here. Everyone knows Fairmonts are nice hotels, but the brand new Pacific Rim is really something else.
First of all, this is hands-down the best smelling hotel we've ever been in (a delightfully subtle Jasmine fragrance present throughout the entire building). The rooms are not only romantic and luxurious, but high-tech. We're talking iPad controlled temperature and lighting, and a purely magical bathroom mirror with TV! The downstairs lobby is built around a beautiful piano bar, and just down the street are scenic water views and the cruise ship terminal in downtown Vancouver.
Wickaninnish Inn, Vancouver Island, BC - we've never stayed in any lodge or hotel that takes better advantage of it's natural surroundings than the Wickaninnish.
You can stargaze the incredibly dark night skies from your balcony, do some serious beach combing only 200 ft from the lobby, and at their Point restaurant, dine to the sounds of the outside waves re-broadcast softly on inside speakers. The rooms and service? Awesome. The "Wick" is not cheap and getting there takes some effort, but it's an incredible experience for any honeymoon, special vacation or anniversary getaway.
Vancouver Island, Canada
Romantic Victoria BC Inns
One of Canada's most romantic cities has terrific accommodation for couples in grand hotels and waterfront inns.
