There are several ways you can transform your hotel room into your own personal romantic hideaway. Of course, you need to hire someone to pre-stage the house for you or you have to enter the house before your significant other gets there.
Below are the top 10 ways to enhance the look and feel of your guest room:
- Song. The best way is to have an iPod with a portable speaker (many hotels now have an iPod docking station) so you can pipe in your favorite music to fill the room. Not too loud, though.
- Light. There is nothing worse than walking in a room full of bright light. Turn off all lights and strategically place a few battery-powered candles around the room (no fire risk, allowed by hotels. Don’t make the same mistake as some did – just use real candles to make smoking very sensitive to detect and turn off an alarm) . Close the drops / shutters.
- Rose petals. When the person you are trying to impress opens the door, they will find a trail of rose petals going from the front door to the bed. Sprinkle lots of rose petals on the bed as well. As a special note, most hotels do not like to use real rose petals but you can use them as long as you are careful (for example if there is a white comfort in the room, protect the bed with a romantic blanket or throw it on the bed and then put the petals on top). .
- Flowers. Roses are king but some people don’t care about them. Find out what her favorite flower is and place an arrangement in the house (or there may be only one flower on the bed or the buds can be placed in the vase).
- Edible decay chocolate is an aphrodisiac and a favorite for romantic occasions. Avoid the bargain basement heart shaped box and go further for high-end truffles from the local chocolate or candy shop.
- Smell. Have you noticed how some hotel rooms smell like cleaning products? Which can spoil the mood. Pick up a room perfume spray from a store like Body Shop. Or you can purchase a “plug-in” and sort it out at one of the outlets in the house – just choose a romantic scent (like vanilla or jasmine)
- Bedding. Most good hotels nowadays have great sheets and comfort. But if you want to add something to the experience, bring your own satin sheets and recreate the bed (yes, some extra work is worth it) or add a throw or the wrong fur blanket to the bed.
- Bubbly. The champ always marks a special occasion and will go well with the chocolates. Sparkling cedar is a great alternative (or non-alcoholic sparkling wine) if not alcohol.
- Love letter. You set up this whole house – but why? Tell your special someone in a note – but not a piece of binder paper. Buy a great card, write something special and leave it in the bed room.
- Extra. There are a few more beautiful touch baths (decorated around the tub bird with candles and rose petals), framed pictures of the two of you in the room and a massage kit. Some couples may choose to hire someone to massage the couple – but would you rather massage your partner or have a stranger touch them?
