Budget Travel tips for romantic hotels

Budget Travel offers up 10 tips for creating a sexy hotel room, featuring Mark Zingarelli’s great illustrations (one is above), and says:

There’s something about hotel rooms that generally makes them feel sexy by definition—maybe because it’s a strange new place, or because the bed is usually the focal point of the room.

But that doesn’t mean they can’t get even sexier.

The editors of Budget Travel have come up with 10 relatively simple ways to give your hotel room—whether it’s at a roadside motel, a fancy island resort, or somewhere in between—a suitably romantic makeover.

Watch the slide show to find out the 10 tips: Our correspondent, seduction artist Bud Travel, will show you how it’s done. (While all 10 are great ideas, you may want to implement only two or three. Overkill isn’t sexy at all.)
