A hotel date night can be a super romantic night with just a little planning! Whether it’s a luxurious five-star resort or a cozy boutique hotel, there is something about spending the night outside of home (even if it’s less than 5 minutes away) that is so nice. Why is it nice? Room service. All of the channels. Cleaning service. Amenities (like a swimming pool or hot tub). Quality time without any interruptions. (Don’t forget to hang up the Do Not Disturb sign!) Couples don’t need a special occasion to book a hotel for the night.

Here is the deal, though: it’s not super romantic to say, “I got us a room at (fill in the blank).” What is romantic? We have five romantic hotel room ideas to make a special night next level

Room Service & Movie Marathon

For a romantic evening, transform your hotel room into a private cinema. Order room service from the hotel restaurant, choose a variety of your favorite snacks and drinks. Then, snuggle up with your favorite movies for a movie night. Most hotels offer a selection of movies or bring a laptop to stream what you want to watch.

A perfect way to pamper your date is to grab some movie themed pajamas! There is nothing better than new pajamas in a super comfy hotel room. It is a great way to set the tone for a cozy evening.

W Hotel in Hollywood has two suites that are perfect for this date night – the “Marvelous King” and the “Fantastic King.” Each of these suites has a huge curved sofa in front of a large flat-screen television with a DVD player. The sitting area is separated from the bed by a retractable curtain, so guests can watch movies on the sofa or from the bed. It’s one of the best places for an intimate staycation.

Personalized Love Notes Hunt

Hide personalized love notes around the hotel or the hotel room for your partner to find. Each note could lead to the next, with the final note leading to a special gift or romantic things like a bubble bath or a table set for dinner.

Spa Night In

Many hotels offer in-room spa services. Book a couples massage or other treatments and spend the evening pampering yourselves. Turn down the lights, play some soft music, and enjoy a night of relaxation. 


Sweeten the Experience

A good thing to further set the mood for love- a satin pajama set will make the perfect sleeping attire after a day of sensuous pleasure. Add some massage oils and fresh flowers with a personalized coupon for a private massage. This is an excellent way to pamper a loved one anytime, but it’s especially nice for someone who needs to rest and relax.

Take Advantage of Hotel Amenities

If your hotel has amenities like a pool, hot tub, or fitness center, plan a date night around these. Enjoy a late-night swim, relax in the hot tub under the stars, or attend a yoga class together. 


One of the best ways to make a romantic stay relaxing is to let the hotel take the lead on creative ideas.
