    The first Four Seasons property to open at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, this resort – which sits about 5 miles southeast of the Magic Kingdom – aims to fill the park's luxury lodging void. And judging by its amenities, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando appears to be succeeding. With its own 18-hole golf course, 13,000-square-foot spa and rooftop steakhouse, the property is well-suited for travelers who want easy access to the theme parks without the over-the-top kitsch associated with Disney-owned properties. That's not to say that the resort doesn't cater to little ones: The property also boasts two 242-foot-long waterslides, a lazy river with two spray cannons, a 7,590-square-foot family pool and the complimentary Kids For All Seasons kids camp. Plus, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers its own Disney character breakfasts, complimentary park shuttle service and a Disney Planning Center – a separate concierge desk designed for mapping out your park itinerary and purchasing tickets. Aside from its amenities, this Four Seasons excels in its accommodations, according to recent guests. Rooms are outfitted with marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, contemporary decor and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Past travelers also appreciated the customer service team here but were not as pleased with the pricey nightly rates.

    Sitting at the base of Aspen Mountain on the southern edge of town, The Little Nell caters to snow junkies with on-site services such as a ski concierge team (who can secure everything from lift tickets to ski rentals) and an equipment storage center. However, guests say that the hotel's proximity to powder isn't the only reason to book. The Little Nell's two in-house restaurants – element47 and Ajax Tavern – earn high praise for their artfully prepared plates, and the hotel spa is ideal for post-skiing relaxation. What's more, The Little Nell is well-equipped to welcome families thanks to a variety of kid-friendly amenities, such as board games, ski and bike rentals, car seats, strollers and more. Although you won't be spending much time indoors, you can look forward to resting up in a spacious and inviting guest room, surrounded by warm, soothing cream-colored hues, a gas fireplace, a well-stocked minibar and a flat-screen TV. And, like they do at The Little Nell's sister property, the Ojai Valley Inn in California, recent guests give the customer service two thumbs up, saying that the hotel's employees were some of the nicest they'd ever met. The only downside? The daily resort fee, which does not cover parking fees.

However, its location is another feather in its cap; The Battery is nearby, as is the South Carolina Aquarium.

If you're here on business, the hotel's in-room business centers will ensure your 9-to-5 doesn't suffer from the change of scenery. And for those looking to relax, L'Ermitage boasts a full-service spa and a rooftop pool with 360-degree views of the city. The hotel's on-site eatery, Avec Nous, is a French-style bistro. The hotel's location sandwiched between downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica puts guests within reasonable driving distance of multiple points of interest, including Venice Beach and the Griffith Observatory. Note that $60 per night, though.
