TripAdvisor reveals top 10 most romantic hotels for 2013

Hoping to score points with your sweetie by booking a top-rated romantic retreat for Valentine's Day?

No problem. Just in time for the holiday, online review giant TripAdvisor has published its list of the Top 10 Most Romantic hotels for 2013 - and USA TODAY is here to take you on romantic hotels photo tour.

The top 10 winning hotels are based on hotels with the best online reviews for romantic stays.

No doubt, they're the type of hotels that people book to propose to their loved one, ring in a memorable anniversary or celebrate some other special event. So it's no surprise that many of them can be pricey.

The average rate at these 10 hotels costs around $319, according to TripAdvisor spokesman Brooke Ferencsik.

But it's easy to spend more. A night's stay in the best cliff-side room at the Post Ranch Inn in California's rugged Big Sur, for example, can set you back $2,500 while the cheapest room for a prime summer Saturday night at Bardessono can set you back $800.
