Writer's Workshop: I'd Live There

Kat had some great prompts this week, but I'm going to go with hotels I'd love to live in.  Pure fantasy and dreaming!

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
Probably the most famous hotel in London, The Savoy is a stomping ground for the world's rich and famous.  Plus, its central location along the Thames and Covent Garden's shopping district is pretty spot on.

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!
Honorable Mentions
What hotels would you love to live in?  The possibilities are nearly endless!

Writer's Workshop is hosted by Kat at Mama's Losin' It


  1. I think I avoided this prompt because I spent so much time in hotels when I was working, and they'd all end up being "the Marriott in Saddle Brook, New Jersey" or something like that. I like your choices, though.

    1. Totally understandable! Staying in hotels can be an adventure...if you don't do it all the time. Thanks for visiting, John :)

  2. Great choices! I'd pick the one in French Polynesia.

    1. Doesn't it look amazing?! Sigh... Thanks for visiting, Jerralea!

  3. Wow, you're a world traveler on the internet. I've never heard of many of these. I like the one in Egpyt. Continental breakfast in a place like that is fantastic. Not just a bunch of donuts like in U.S.

    1. Wouldn't that be amazing? I've been to three of the hotels on my list...but I'd love to visit them all! Thanks for visiting, B!

  4. I really love this post. All of your choices are amazing. The Plaza (because of Eloise) is the first one I thought of when I read the prompts for this week. I'm so glad you added it to your list!!.

    1. Well, you can't leave out The Plaza! It would be so wrong :)

  5. Wow! These places are amazing. I'm going to look up that Oregon one. That can't be too far from Seattle!

    1. It's not! And, bonus, Newport is my favorite Oregon coastal town :) It's a great place for family vacations!
