As Chris and I are approaching our ninth wedding anniversary — doesn’t time fly! — we are beginning to think about ways to celebrate. Being big fans of the United States as a holiday destination, one of our options is a visit to Costa Mesa, a beautiful town in Southern California which boasts a Mediterranean-like climate all year round. What’s more, Costa Mesa is home to some great hotels where the services and amenities really help create a romantic vibe for couples looking to celebrate each other’s company without being too distracted by the outside world.

4. The Costa Mesa Marriot

The Costa Mesa Marriot includes some great facilities for couples, including an outdoor pool and a spa tub. The air-conditioned suites also feature not one but two televisions (to save you from any arguments about who wants to watch what), as well as refrigerators where you can keep your bottles of champagne perfectly chilled. The hotel also has its own restaurant and bar/lounge, and is conveniently located just a few blocks from the South Coast Plaza shopping mall, where you can take your loved one to buy him or her that little treat which you know they deserve.

3. Ayers Hotel and Suites Costa Mesa/Newport Beach

This beautifully decorated courtyard hotel is a great option for couples hoping to enjoy a little break together. A traditionally decorated lobby helps set the scene in this classy hotel, which lies just a mile from the Orange County Fairgrounds, only two miles from South Coast Plaza, and three miles from the beach, which makes this location perfect for those couples wishing to top up their tans. The Ayers Hotel also boasts a Provençal-style restaurant serving continental cuisine, ideal for a romantic evening meal.

2. Crown Plaza Costa Mesa Orange/County

The Crown Plaza Costa Mesa Orange County provides fantastically comfortable rooms for those who enjoy spending time in their hotel to get away from it all. This even includes pillow menus for guests who like to sleep in the utmost comfort. Besides great rooms, the hotel features a Savoy Restaurant and Lounge, not to mention an outdoor pool, a spa tub, and even a fitness facility. The Crown Plaza Costa Mesa is ideally located just three miles from John Wayne Airport, and just a short seven mile ride away from Newport Pier.

1. Avenue of the Arts Wyndham Hotel

The Avenue of the Arts Wyndham Hotel also boasts a number of fantastic amenities which are perfect for couples. An outdoor pool provides the perfect setting for a romantic sunset swim, with the hotel restaurant offering lake-view dining which really adds to the romantic vibe. There is even a fireplace in the lobby lounge which, with its marble bar, is a great setting for a romantic cocktail, or two, to help couples unwind.

So if you are looking for a romantic getaway with your loved one and are fans of the sunny state of California, why not book yourselves into one of the above hotels in Costa Mesa and treat yourselves to a romantic break you’ll be sure to fall in love with?
