  1. In Central Park, New York

As seen in many movies, Central Park is an utterly romantic destination to whisk your other half off on a blissful city break.

Paris is one of Europe’s most enchanting capitals with iconic architecture from the Notre Dame cathedral to the famous Louvre Museum and the Eiffel Tower.

Why not consider popping the question under the Eiffel Tower, however, if you don’t like crowds book a stay in the Terrace Eiffel View Room to propose in private from the comfort of your balcony with a fully prepared breakfast or dinner set up.
