When a fella or lady is ready to pop the question to their lady love or main-man, they might start sweating bullets over choosing the ideal spot for the grand gesture. Luckily, some of the most romantic hotels in the world just seem to be made for getting down on one knee. Here are five such spots across North America:
1. The Fairmont Banff Springs
You don’t need to travel to Scotland to find a castle – instead, check out Hipmunk deals at The Fairmont Banff Springs, a palace all its own nestled amid the majestic mountains of the Canadian Rockies. The lady in question will be enchanted by breathtaking views from romantic suites featuring Jacuzzis and terraces. Take away proposal jitters by soaking together in the outdoor whirlpool, or enjoying a rose-petaled spa pampering session.
2. Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas
It might be the City of Sin, but Las Vegas’ romantic side spontaneously sends dozens of lovebirds to the altar each year. Your intended is sure to be romanced by this gorgeous property, which features spectacular views and a fantasy swimming pool. Spanning two floors, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental will make her feel like a Shanghai Queen. The unique absence of a hotel casino maximizes serenity and romance.
3. Four Seasons Santa Barbara
Sitting between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the stunning Pacific Ocean, Four Seasons Santa Barbara sets the perfect stage for popping the question. There’s a special champagne-and-candlelight dinner at sunset, and you’ll be served by your own concierge and sommelier before heading back to a room decked out in romantic surprises. The hotel also helps plan the perfect romantic gourmet picnic, including wine and two engraved glasses.
4. Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac
This hotel truly feels like a castle, towering spectacularly over the rest of Quebec City and showcasing one of the most romantic views in the world. If that doesn’t help you propose already, maybe one of the restaurants at Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac will, each serving up delectable selections and more of those breathtaking views over the St. Lawrence River. You might also consider waiting for winter, when the city famously turns into a magical, romantic wonderland.
5. Trump Soho
If it’s your dream to propose in the Big Apple, check out Hipmunk deals at Trump Soho NYC. Towering above Manhattan, this hotel is one of New York’s most impressive. You may never want to leave your cozy-chic room with its stunning Italian marble bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows offering incredible views. When you lovebirds do emerge, you’ll have four restaurants, a spa and a pool overlooking the city to enjoy.
