Whether it’s the glittering Eiffel Tower or the smell of fresh baguettes wafting through the air, Paris is known for romance.
Now, the City of Light is officially home to the world’s Top Hotel for Romance for 2018, according to TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice awards. The Maison Souquet, billed as having luxurious interiors and romantic ambiance, cinched the top spot on TripAdvisor’s ranking.
The five-star hotel is located off the Rue de Bruxelles, steps away from the famed Moulin Rouge. It has only 20 rooms, but boasts a spa, bar and butler service. Guests can choose from two-bedroom suites, junior suites or deluxe rooms, each featuring different interiors. Every morning, breakfast is served in the hotel’s winter garden.

Maison Souquet’s TripAdvisor profile touts hundreds of positive reviews, with 93 per cent of them ranking the hotel as “excellent.” Customers raved about the hotel’s private spa and hospitality.
“[T]he vibe is a quiet understated privacy. Maison Souquet do romance in the way it should be done: classy, a little risqué, and devoid of anything remotely resembling that of a hallmark moment,” writes one TripAdvsior reviewer.
Other top hotels for romance
The world’s second-ranked Top Hotel for Romance for 2018 is the Nayara Springs hotel in La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica, followed by Lani’s Suites de Luxe in Puerto Del Carmen, Spain.
But if you’re gunning for a romantic getaway this Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to travel to far-flung, international locations. Instead, you might want to consider opting for Ohio — the Top Hotel for Romance for 2018 in the U.S. according to TripAdvisor is Belamere Suites in Perrysburg, Ohio. Belamere, which typically has a rate of US$218 per night, beat out stereotypical, romantic accommodations like Park Avenue penthouses and oceanfront rooms.
So what makes Belamere so swoon-worthy to TripAdvisor reviewers? Couples can pick from a selection of suites, ranging from the Ultimate Jacuzzi Suite to the Grand Royal Swimming Pool Suite. And Belamere also offers romantic add-on amenities, like an Anniversary Package for US$125, which includes rose petals in the shape of a heart on the bed, pre-lit candles, a restaurant gift card and two aromatherapy packets.
