Sometimes the best thing about a hotel is that it’s a convenient place to rest your head during your travels — and then there are the hotels that are totally worth the cost of the plane ticket that got you there — whether you leave the property or not. These are the hotels that Refinery29 has rounded up in a list of hotels they are obsessed with.
“They’re not cheap, but they’re worth it, and if you start saving now, maybe you can eventually hit up all of them,” writes Refinery29’s Emily Zemler.
Making the list is the Mondrian London, adjacent to the Tate Modern.
“Currently, the property, which is designed to look like an old-school cruise ship, is the only hotel in London that offers riverside balconies. The hotel’s location is unparalleled, and its rooftop Rumpus Room bar offers a 360-degree view of the city,” notes Zemler.
Far from the hustle and bustle of London is Twin Farms in Barnard Vermont. This makes the list for its all-inclusive variety.
“Twin Farms is a high-end all-inclusive experience that you’ll never want to leave. Everything comes with the price tag, including picnic lunches, ice-skating, canoeing, and tennis. You can even borrow a BMW to drive around the countryside,” Zemler says.
The Peninsula Hong Kong is another hotel in a bustling metropolis that travelers may want to hole up in for an extended period of time.
“Built in 1928, The Peninsula is Hong Kong’s oldest hotel and one of the world’s most iconic properties. Its rooms have a timeless yet modern design and unparalleled views of the city (be sure to book a Deluxe Harbor View Suite or, if you’re feeling really extravagant, The Marco Polo Suite),” recommends Zemler.
These are but a sampling of some of the world’s most iconic properties worth splurging on. Read on for more here.
