Romantic: ideals and actions of pleasure, desire, and emotions relating to love with a person or love to a feeling of invigoration.

Romance – it’s subjective. It’s about how it makes  you feel. So how does one do a case study of America’s “most romantic” destinations?

You survey hundreds of millions of verified reviews across 23 languages. Using statistics for reputation marketing, with a series of “tops and flops,” and type of hotel.

Of course, with the option of rating a hotel as “romantic.”

That’s exactly what TrustYou, the “KAYAK” for hotel reviews, analyzed in their most recent case study; data exclusive to my travel site.

Brilliant.

I’ve worked for nightlife venues, and know too well that one company will troll on a competitor’s reviews, and add positive feedback on their own. Yelp just doesn’t cut it. Finally, an organization has made it their interest to moderate assessment, and categorize features for clean, principled, and practical commentary.

In all honesty, “romantic” remains a personalized sentiment. When I think of Las Vegas, it may not be all hookers and cocaine (a la The Hangover), but I would have sought secluded accommodation on a cliff over-looking the ocean for a “romantic” escape. That’s exactly it: “romantic” is a mental escape. Whether these hotels stimulate the mind and body with their charming decor, uninterrupted panoramic views, or opulent service, they have set a bar for relaxation, arousal, and wanderlust.

Alas, numbers don’t lie, and travelers have ranked the following destinations as the “Most Romantic.” As a partner of TrustYouKAYAK matched the data with starting rates, revealing just how much, couples are willing to pay for their most preferred weekend getaway.
