There isn’t anything much better than getting away and spending a weekend with your loved one. After making reservations and getting to your destination, you’re free to relax and focus on adventure and romance. You might be spending a lot of time in that comfy hotel bedding, but even when you’re not in bed, an amazing view can keep the mood alive. With that in mind, I present you with 10 of the most beautiful hotel views in the world (in no particular order).
