Some hotels (our favorites) go all out to provide a sexy space for travelers looking to up the romance level, whether they’re celebrating a honeymoon, anniversary, or hey -- simply a kids-free Saturday. The more modest features these hotels offer include steamy whirlpool tubs or intimacy kits in the minibars, while more elaborate options include rooms equipped with erotic photographs, rotating beds, and mirrored ceilings. We searched for some of the naughtiest, most NSFW guest rooms and found some real, er, winners at the following nine hotels. Don't worry -- they're all safe enough for work, just maybe not the correct venues for a work event... But all these options are sure to make your vacation an amorous one!
Hotel Pelirocco; Brighton, England
Calling itself "England's most Rock 'n' Roll hotel" certainly gives the upper-middle-range Hotel Pelirocco a lot to live up to, but it makes a sterling effort. The focus is on the hotel's individually themed rooms (from burlesque to sci-fi), which are very imaginatively finished and truly unique. Some rooms verge on X-rated, particularly the Kraken's Lair Suite, which has a mirror above the bed and a stripper pole. A red chandelier and risque mermaid photos also dial up the sexiness. There's also the Ophelia Fancy Room, which has a lingerie theme.
Desire Resort & Spa Riviera Maya
Desire Resort & Spa is an all-inclusive, couples-only, clothing-optional resort that attracts a range of couples, from older married ones to young nudists to swingers. This is a place only for those interested in a raucous vacation; after all, sex is allowed in some public spaces, such as the whirlpool area and the Sin Room. One of the more provocative room categories is the Passion Suite; steamy photos, a Kama Sutra-inspired mural above the two-person whirlpool, and a tantra essentials gift box are present.
SLS Las Vegas
The upscale, 1,613-room SLS Las Vegas is in the building that once housed the iconic Sahara Resort & Casino. Designed by acclaimed French designer Philippe Starck, in collaboration with Gensler Architects, the property mixes elements of the property's past with strikingly modern decor, which -- in some rooms -- means the addition of mirrors on the ceilings above the beds. Minibars also come stocked with intimacy kits for "sinners."
Andaz San Diego
This 159-room boutique is one of the sleekest hotels in the Gaslamp Quarter, with a popular rooftop lounge and a sexy wine bar. Rooms are minimally decorated but attractive, and the Andaz Sweet Suite comes with a glass-walled bathroom, complete with a deep soaking tub and six-person shower in case, er, you're trying to have a party.
Hotel Amour, Paris
Situated in the Pigalle quarter near the Moulin Rouge and Basilica of the Sacred Heart, The Hotel Amour attracts fashionable Parisian youth with its hip restaurant and bar. The hotel itself was inspired by the Japanese model of love hotels, and the owners have invested a tidy sum of money in developing the concept -- for example, they hired the services of well-known fashion designer Chantal Thomass to design certain rooms. Those interested in an erotic hotel experience should book the Supérieure or Large Double Room; each is filled with either erotic photographs or phallic furniture.
Cove Haven Resort, Pocono Mountains
A throwback to the glory days of heart-shaped bathtubs and gaudy theme decor, Cove Haven Resort is a couples-only property stuck in the summer of love. A honeymoon destination since the 1960s, this Poconos getaway has become an American institution whose founder invented the heart-shaped Sweetheart Tub. All rooms have round beds with a copious amount of mirrors, many on the ceilings. Most feature heart-shaped whirlpool tubs with split-level sitting areas that have fireplaces and tube-style TVs, or guests can opt to book a room with a Champagne glass-shaped whirlpool.
The Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas
This three-tower, off-the-Strip hotel is known for its crazy parties and celebrity stopovers. It features over 700 sleek rooms with up-to-date technologies, numerous popular clubs, and two large pool areas. The hotel offers a few Luxury Suites, including the pink and doll-filled Barbie Suite. But for a more adult room, the Erotic Suite has suggestive art, a whirlpool tub for two, and sexy red and black furniture, including lace-up chairs. Additionally, the bed rotates under a mirrored ceiling and there's a stripper pole in the large shower. Hey, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Hotel ZaZa, Dallas
A glamorous, ultra-hip hangout, the 154-roomHotel ZaZa is a cool alternative to the luxurious but sometimes stuffy hotels in Uptown Dallas. Guests and locals mingle at the gourmet restaurant, Dragonfly, and at Poolside, the site of outdoor cocktail parties year-round. Rooms have a similar trendy vibe, and the Erotica Suite is tricked out with an oversized bathtub and plenty of fur and silk accents. Additional concept suites include the Shag-a-Delic and Rendez-Vous.
Hotel Max, Seattle
From the turntables and Tivoli radios in the rooms to the free craft beer during happy hour in the lobby, the upscale Hotel Max is distinct and stylish. Its 163 rooms are colorful and decorated with works by local artists (much of it erotica) -- and some have Space Needle views. The hotel also offers a naughty Sweet Surrender package, which includes amenities such as a blindfold, vibrator, and bottle of champagne.
