The best bathtubs -- those with room for two, and perhaps even a private view -- allow for long, lingering soaks together. They're a perfect prelude to romance. While big showers can be great watery fun, their insistent spray encourages quickies. Big bathtubs, on the other hand, inspire a slow, languid buildup to passion.
For that reason, it's always a disappointment when I visit a reputedly romantic hotel, peek into the bathroom, and find a tub sized for an overgrown toddler. To ensure you won't meet that fate, I present photo evidence of some of the best bathtubs around.
For the best experience in a hotel bathtub, don't forget to pack the bubble bath. And if it's a jetted tub, use bubble bath sparingly. Trust me on this.
