Seal the deal with a stay at one of America's most romantic hotels, complete with stunning vistas, delectable cuisine and wine, and cuddle-worthy accommodations.

When Ian Schrager revamped this 1924 landmark with a heavy dose of boho style, he brought sexy back to Gramercy. Expect jewel-toned guest rooms with velvet headboards and "drinking cabinets" stocked with crystal glassware, a crimson lobby with a 10-foot fireplace and a dominating crystal chandelier, and two buzzy bars, the Jade and Rose, where walls are hung with tapestries and rotating pieces of art by Warhol and Basquiat. The cherry on top: guests receive unique access to Gramercy Park, which is normally reserved for residents exclusively. A perfect option when you're looking for a romantic getaway lake district.

This isn't a Kauai mega-resort. Its expansive southern coast neighbors, with their water slides and innumerable poolside bars, are the polar opposite. Koa Kea provides a true retreat from reality, which is precisely what we would expect from one of America's most romantic hotels. The 121 rooms have balconies or lanais and are decorated with chaise lounges and Hawaiian hues, while the rest of the amenities are kept quiet and romantic; there's a simple, deep blue swimming pool, a top-notch restaurant that serves elegant plates of sashimi, and a luxury five-room spa to fill your time between strolls along the waterfront.

In terms of coastal America, it doesn't get much more beautiful than Big Sur, which may explain why celebrities flock to Post Ranch Inn, which sits atop a 1,200-foot hill with views of the Pacific. Book one of the 40 adults-only standalone homes or apartments with floor-to-ceiling views of the Santa Lucia Mountains or the water for the ultimate in seclusion. There are no televisions or clocks in the rooms, and complimentary minibars are provided.

Unlike its flashier Wailea Beach cousins, this 72-room haven on a 15-acre mountaintop is as serene as they come. The spacious and light-filled apartment-style rooms have open-air baths, private lanais, and breathtaking views of three outlying islands. The hotel's adults-only restriction maintains the atmosphere deliriously romantic; canoodle poolside in a private cabana with a tropical cocktail, relax in the quiet gazebo with a massage, or wine and dine on seafood in the award-winning restaurant while watching the sun set over the horizon. Don't be concerned about the lack of seashore. Cars are waiting to take you down to the beach with your picnic meal in tow.

This 70-acre Southwest-style resort lets you see Red Rock Country in all its grandeur. The hotel, which was once a private ranch, is made up of adobe casitas that are surrounded by pine trees and the rust-colored rocks of Boynton Canyon. Kiva fireplaces and Native American motifs mimic the landscape on the inside. Spend your days swimming in the resort's pools, hiking and bicycling neighboring trails, playing tennis, or relaxing at the Mii Amo spa with your special someone.

Newport, a seaside town on the coast of Rhode Island, has long been a popular vacation location for society's upper crust. Consider the Gilded Age mansions built by families such as the Vanderbilts and Astors at the turn of the twentieth century. Some of them, such as the Breakers, which is now a house museum, and the Chanler at Cliff Walk, a European-style hotel with one of the best ocean views in town, are still open to the public. Head out to the lawn for s'mores around the fire pit after dinner at the ultra-romantic Cara.12 Stunning Seaside Inns Across the U.S.
