10 DREAMY HOTELS

i’m always dreaming of new hotels to visit. i just love the whole experience of a well designed hotel…from the room keys, to the decor, to the restaurant, to the robes, to the bathrooms. they make me so happy! expedia asked me to share 10 hotels i’m dreaming of staying at and here are the ones currently at the top of my list…

hotel covell | los angeles, CA

i’ve been to events here but never had the chance to stay the night. the location is perfect and all of the room details are cozy and modern. there is also a killer wine bar right down stairs which is an added bonus to staying the night!

post ranch inn | big sur california

i’ve only ever driven through big sur but it’s one of the most beautiful places i’ve ever been and this hotel has stunning 360 degree views. i’d love to stay in one of their treehouse style rooms and soak in their infinity pool. i’d also like to visit the hot springs at the esalen institute which is not far from the inn.

ett hem | stockholm, sweden

the swedes really do have such great style and taste. i love the traditional style of the rooms mixed with pops of modern colors. the hotel is housed in an old townhouse which gives it a very comfortable and relaxed feeling.

tierra patagonia | torres de paine, chile

joanie went here on her honeymoon and said it was amazing. i love how it’s built into its surrounding so it barely stands out or takes away from the natural beauty of the area. how about those hanging chairs?!

    Song Saa, in Cambodia, was amazing! We stayed there in May.

    Laura says:

    These look stunning… The Nam Hai is my favorite, it’s on the beach near Hoi An, Vietnam. Followed closely by the Chedi in Chang Mai, Thailand.

    Jay says:

    Lovely post! I’m currently dreaming of Majeka House in SA, and planning a little getaway at Memmo Alfama in PT!

    Samantha Lee says:

    Oh my gosh, these are all INSANE. So breathtaking. The Santorini and Italy hotels? Killing me. I’ll have to check out the LA and Big Sur ones because they are too close not to. Saving this list!

    It’s unfortunate that these mostly cater to affluent folks. I have been traveling solo for 17+ years and typically am about the experience of the surroundings, not spending a fortune on a room that I only sleep/bathe in. It’s nice to stay somewhere beautiful, though modest.

    If you are traveling in the Upstate region of New York, there’s a great place called “The Roxbury”… Calls itself a “boutique motel resort”… and the Catskills Region offers some great seasonal hiking and skiing…

    One other hotel not to be missed is the Amansara, in Siem Reap Cambodia. Minimalism at it’s best, but super-luxuroius.

    I went to Post Ranch on my honeymoon in October. It set the bar extremely high for all future hotel experiences – staff was incredibly attentive, out of this world food, and amazing hiking!

    I love love love the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon. It’s a 1920s renovated hotel, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, for book lovers. Every room is decorated in the style of a different author. There’s a two-story library upstairs, with amazing water views, where they serve spiced wine for sipping by the fire. No phones or TVs. Great restaurant on the lower level, called Tables of CONtent, until you’ve had your meal, when it becomes Tables of ConTENT. A place of peace, where you meet fascinating people (lots of writers and composers) from around the world. No five-star amenities, but walks on the beach, peace and quiet, a place to heal or be romantic.
