Las Vegas may be known as Sin City, but it’s also filled romantic resorts. Vegas hotels offer plush, beautifully designed rooms, upscale room service and extensive on-site amenities--just what any couple needs for an intimate escape.

Couples looking for a romantic getaway have several options both on and off the Las Vegas Strip. Some resorts, like The Venetian and Paris Las Vegas, were built in the image of the world’s most romantic cities. Glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola or take in the city's sights from Paris Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower–this might not be Europe, but it’s a sure way to set a romantic tone for the evening. Several resorts in town offer year-round packages that combine some of their most romantic experiences, like spa treatments, dinners for two and shows.

Everyone's definition of romance is different, and Las Vegas hotels offer a variety of room décor and styles. Several properties offer guests separate check-in, concierge services, and an overall upscale atmosphere and an attention to excellent service.

Whether you want to enjoy a relaxing couples massage or sip champagne in the privacy of your own suite, our list of the 10 most romantic hotels in Las Vegas is sure to have a place you and your sweetheart will enjoy.
