Sylvia Beach Hotel: Newport, Oregon
The most local and, probably, the most plausible for a visit on the list, the Sylvia Beach Hotel is a book lovers dream. Each room is modeled after a specific author/work, they have a massive library on the top floor, the restaurant is called the Tables of Content, and there are no TVs or WiFi access. Added bonus, you're able to visit the hotel even if you aren't staying there. Any room that is empty is open to explore. I've done this! So awesome. Plus, it's right on the beach :)
Hotel Sacher Wien: Vienna, Austria
Possibly one of the most famous hotels in Austria, the Hotel Sacher is renowned for its sacher torte, a delicious concoction of dense chocolate cake with a marmalade filling and chocolate ganache. It's perfect with a cup of coffee to tone down the richness of the cake. Aside from that, the central location is spot on for exploring Vienna and the pedestrian district in general.
Chateau Marmot: Los Angeles, California
Celebrity sightings...that's why! Plus, it looks like a castle and it's beautifully decorated :)
Le Taha'a Island Resort and Spa: French Polynesia
The location and scenery is absolutely beautiful. Who wouldn't want to lounge on those beaches and frolic through that crystal clear blue water? That's what dreams are made of! Plus, those bungalows are a romantic's dream...
Villa D'Este: Cernobbio, Italy
An absolutely beautiful location, Lake Como in Italy, and the possibility of being invited over for dinner with George and Amal...right? No? Hm.... Regardless, it's still an awesome place!
The Stanley Hotel: Estes Park, Colorado
Why the Stanley? Because of Stephen King and The Shining. I want to hunt ghosts (you can request the Ghost Adventures Package)! Plus, the location is pretty beautiful and it's a historical hotel. Right up my alley.
The Savoy: London, England
Mena House Oberoi: Giza-Cairo, Egypt
Situated with amazing views of the Pyramids in Giza, this would be an awesome hotel to stay in. Visible from nearly every room and within 700 feet, the Pyramids are the real stars of this hotel. Gorgeous.
Park Hyatt: Sydney, Australia
Located right on Sydney Harbor, the Park Hyatt offers beautiful views of the Sydney Opera House and many other landmarks. It's a clean, contemporary hotel with many amenities. One can dream, right?
The Plaza: New York City, New York
Can you even have a list of hotels to live in without including the Plaza? I mean, it was good enough for Eloise and it's where every NYC bride wants to get married. It's just so iconic! Plus, 24-hour butler service? Yes, please!
