The 2014 Forbes Travel Guide list of Five-Star hotels presents couples with an accommodations bucket list of the best places to stay. The news this year concerns the addition of fifteen new hotels, including the first ever in Alaska. California, the golden state, added the most new entries to its prodigious list.

Representing its state for the first time, Montana's The Ranch at Rock Creek, Philipsburg  earned a spot on the list. As did the posh The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, Miami.

Since many twosomes consider both fine-dining restaurants and top spas integral parts of a vacation experience, this year's list also includes those stellar establishments along with Four-Star winners in those categories. And there's a new category: Recommended Hotel. States, including Iowa and Indiana, which never had a property on the list, now offer up a singular recommended one for midwestern mavens.
