There's something about the drama and excitement of the US Open that's very conducive to snuggling up with a loved one. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that few get to experience. Of course, every couple needs somewhere to lay their heads, so here are three hotels to consider: one a stylish locale, one a romantic boutique, and one that won't blow the budget.

A solid recommendation for any event or occasion, the Grand Hyatt New York is the epitome of luxury, elegance and sleek sophistication. It's adjacent to Grand Central Station and just seven blocks from the Grand Central subway stop, meaning it affords easy access to the US Open site and the very best that NYC has to offer. As if that's not enough, it's also a preferred lodging of many tennis stars, so there's a good chance you'll cross paths with one or two.
Romance and tranquility at the Library Hotel — Photo courtesy of Library Hotel
If you'd like to infuse a little more romance into your trip, consider the Library Hotel, a luxury boutique lodging that also boasts convenient proximity to Grand Central Station. Enjoy a brunch on their idyllic patio with a mimosa (or two) before heading off to watch the matches.
Last but not least, if you're looking for something that emphasizes convenience and comfort over style and luxury, you'll likely want to turn your eye to Queens. Hotel prices in Queens are more reasonable than Manhattan, and properties like the LaGuardia Marriott will offer complimentary (and fast) shuttles between the hotel and the airport, as well as to the US Open itself.
