And even in 2020, a hotel room remains a top choice for a romantic time together. And here is why. A hotel room offers the following advantages:

  • It provides a different setting and atmosphere that is sure to bring excitement and increase the fun;
  • As the hotel room already comes equipped, you don’t have to do much in terms of setting up except to compliment what the hotel already has with extras that would make the night exciting;
  • And because of number 2 above, it gives you more time to do more planning and pout a lot of thoughts and effort into executing a wonderful night of romance, pleasure, and fun.
  • A hotel room will also allow you more room for creativity and trying out new things outside your usual bedroom or other intimate environments. 
  • The cherry on top is that you will not have to worry about cleaning up the room afterward, as this will be done by the hotel.

Preparing for the Romantic Hotel Night

Preparation is key for a very successful romantic night at the hotel with your partner and/or spouse. It is therefore important that you take the following important preparatory steps in organizing your hotel date night, to give the both of you a night you will always remember and forever cherish.

1. Start planning in advance. 

It would be good to start planning at least 2 weeks in advance. Why is this important? A romantic night is not just any other night; it’s supposed to be a very special night that solders your relationship and makes it stronger. It’s a night that reminds both of you why you chose each other. And because it is supposed to be extra special, you have to show your partner that you put thought and time into it because of their invaluable worth to you.

2. Decide in advance what theme you are going for, and how you want the night to play out. 

This is vital, as it would inform the kind of hotel room you ultimately settle for. So say for example you want to go with a theme that allows for some sort of role-playing, you will need a hotel that has a room that can allow you to set up what you need for the roles you want to play. 

3. Choose a good hotel that allows you to try out as much variety and fun. 

Our definition of a good hotel for purposes of this romantic evening will be a hotel that has the following – a good view that allows for an evening of sitting outside to take in beautiful scenery and sights and sounds; a spacious room with a very spacious, good and comfortable bed and bedding accessories and a spacious shower. 64% of Americans also agree with us on some of these requirements.

4. Tell the hotel that the hotel room is for a romantic evening. 

This would ensure that the hotel gives you a room suited for the purpose, and importantly also arrange the room appropriately for the occasion.

5. Make reservations well in advance with the hotel so that this also ensures that you get good rooms suited for the special night. 

Leaving the reservation to the last minute will not leave you with many choices in terms of rooms because you may be unlucky and it falls in a peak season where the good hotels may be booked out.

6. Go to the hotel in advance before the evening to make sure that everything is in place.

Romantic music; scented candles and flowers; wine/champagne on ice, the works, and any other romantic items you may want to take. The chart below is an example of some romantic items that Americans take on a romantic getaway, and which you can also add to your list.

Nothing sets the romantic tone for the rest of the night than walking into a romantic atmosphere created by a properly set up romantic hotel room.

8. And finally, make any house or babysitting arrangements that you need to make in advance. 

The last thing you need is to have your planned romantic evening ruined because you don’t have a house or babysitter.

You can be sure that this will set the tone for the rest of the evening.

For the latter game, you will need to have come to the hotel in advance and placed items about both of you in strategic locations in the room. Your task for the night would be to find them and to see who finds the most items. This would be lots of fun.

4. Star-gazing and watching the sunset. This particular activity would be perfect if you booked a room with a really beautiful view that allows you and your beloved to watch the starry night and also watch the sunrise and also sunset. 

5. Enjoy a great shower together and tuck yourselves to sleep by either snuggling up and watching your favorite movie or reading your favorite book together.

6. Don’t forget to spoil each other with gifts. Surprise him with a romantic gift, and similarly for the man, surprise her with a romantic gift. Gifts are always a great addition to any romantic outing or activity and also tells your significant other that you appreciate them.

At the end of your romantic evening, you can explore the rest of your environment by taking a walk, seeing the museum, or an art gallery or other sightseeing attractions the place may have or going to watch a movie. By the time you are done with all of these, you are certain to return home more energized, and importantly more in love with each other.

On a final note,

Remember, this evening is about you and your significant other with no distractions. It is therefore not allowed to have any form of distractions like your cellphone, or to even discuss work on this night.
