The 60 Most Incredible Hotels in the World

Sleek marble bathrooms; cool, crisp white linens; views of new cities we’ve never yet been in. These are a few of our favorite things—about hotel stays.

And we love a good hotel stay. Especially at these 60 properties around the world.

We could easily while away entire days—weeks even!—in any of these hotels. We long to become permanent lodgers, who wander the halls singing of the many delights that each property possesses.

But, of course, we can’t.

These grand structures, built as transitory hubs, welcome us for temporary stays. They fill us with experiences and stories. And hopefully, our own short visits fold into the spaces and merge with the tales of the many guests who have come before.

Because the best hotels give us peace and comfort, but also lure us into their romance, their passions, their intrigue. They are often destinations unto themselves.

So wander in, post a Do Not Disturb sign on the door, and escape to somewhere truly unique—even if you never manage to leave its walls.
