10 hotels with bathtubs so luxe, you’ll want to plan a pampering getaway ASAP

I don’t know about you guys, but when I’m traveling, one of the things I look forward to the most is indulging in a nice, long soak in the bathtub. It’s a little treat for myself that I don’t get to do at home.

However, many newer, modern hotels have gotten rid of bathtubs in favor of maximizing space. *woomp woomp* But worry not, fellow tub-thumpers! Here are 10 hotels that will make all your bath time wishes come true:
