Las Vegas is filled romantic resorts, from hotels with elaborate themes to newer, sexier properties. Regardless of the hotel’s style, guests will find Vegas hotels offer plush, beautifully designed rooms, delectable room service menus and extensive on-site amenities--just what you need for an escape for two.

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 and shows.

Everyone's definition of romance is different, and Las Vegas hotels offer a variety of room décor and styles. Many specialize in offering an exclusive, upscale atmosphere with concierge services, fine dining and attentive service, like twice daily housekeeping.

Whether you want to enjoy a relaxing couples massage or sip champagne in the privacy of your own suite, read on for our recommendations on the 10 most romantic hotels in Las Vegas.
