    Currently, I'm just a little sick of luxury and decadence in poor countries.
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!

    Yeah, this list doesn't make a whole lot of sense like the others said, there are definitely hotels missing.
    I thought so too, but it's a good jumping off point. We can all post our own faves/fantasies. I'd really like to stay at the Banff Springs one day.

    Default Your favorite hotels

    What are some of your favorite hotels? Include pictures!

    Four Seasons Hualalai
    Kona-Kohala coast of the Big Island of Hawaii
    It's very private and the amenities are great. Guests stay in private cottages. Offers adults only pool with bar and poolside cabanas. Lagoon with exotic fish and eagle rays for snorkeling. I enjoyed the opportunity to swim with and feed the rays. They were beautiful creatures. Wonderful food and beach bonfires on the weekends are a great way to meet other guests (many of whom are celebrities) and socialize.

    Hotel del Coronado
    Coronado, California
    Beautiful historic hotel. Sunday brunch in the crown room is a must. L. Frank Baum wrote the Wizard of Oz here, and there is tons of Wizard of Oz memorabilia and merchandise. Tea and cocktails served in the lobby. Staying here, you feel like you have gone back in time. Many movies are filmed here, and they have a tv channel in the rooms exclusively for those films.

    The Royal Orleans
    New Orleans, Louisiana
    Gorgeous, quaint hotel with amazing views. Located in the French Quarter. Rooftop pool and balcony overlooking the Quarter. Rooms aren't huge, but they are cozy and very tastefully decorated. Wonderfully attentive staff.

    The Jefferson
    Richmond, Virginia
    Elegant hotel with large, attractive rooms. They provide transportation around Richmond, so you don't need to worry about driving if you want to go to a bar. Excellent food.

    The Enzian Inn
    Leavenworth, Washington

    You feel like you're in a different country. Very warm and cozy getaway. I haven't been in about 10 years, but I remember really enjoying it.

    Hotel Deca
    Seattle, Washington

    Funky, modern hotel. Very cool and reasonably priced.

    The Hill Country Hyatt
    San Antonio, Texas

    Beautiful, relaxing resort in the hill country. I love the lazy river. Great place to take a family because there is something for everyone to enjoy. If anyone is looking for a place to have a family vacation, consider San Antonio. You can take your kids, stay in this hotel, and visit attractions such as Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the Riverwalk, and the Mexican market.

    Sheraton Maui......the most gorgeous hotel we have EVER stayed at. The cliffs, the service, the gardens. Stunning.

    Believe it or not; the Hilton in Niagara Falls Ontario. Hate to admit it. Obviously nothing like the above hotel, but for a 'close by Hotel', its quite nice. I organized a family reunion there and we had an incredible time. Had dinner in a private dining room overlooking the Falls on the 34th floor--had to take a special elevator and everything to it! Though, you could also take the stairs if you desired. It was wonderful. Just saying if you are in that area.....

    The Drake in Chicago! (i think some of the pictures were cut in half posting them)

    the old House of Blues Hotel Chicago (now Hotel Sax) there aren't pictures anymore since it's been redone. lame.

    and the Westin in Cabo San Lucas.

    I'm a hard act to follow because when I'm done, I take the microphone with me.
