    The Peninsula Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    #1 in Best Preferred Legend Collection Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1810 reviewsTripAdvisor (1810)
    Free WiFi

    Occupying prime real estate on Chicago's coveted Magnificent Mile, The Peninsula Chicago combines Hong Kong's cosmopolitan flair with the Windy City's Midwestern charm. Travelers describe the guest rooms as comfortable thanks to their creamy color palette and plush furniture, not to mention their modern techie touches, like a bedside remote command station that controls the lights, television and room temperatures. Meanwhile, the renowned Peninsula Spa is in a class by itself: earning The Peninsula Chicago many accolades from health and leisure magazines. Another honorable mention goes to the afternoon tea served in the lobby bar, which visitors say is a nice and welcome touch. During your stay, guests recommend making time for the tasty Cantonese dishes served in the Shanghai Terrace restaurant. However, for many travelers, it was The Peninsula Chicago's friendly service staff that convinced them to stay here again.

    Free WiFi

    Located along Lake Como's western shore, this Preferred Legend outpost sits near Lake Como's upscale villas – some of which are owned by celebrities like Madonna and George Clooney – and offers guests prime access to shops, restaurants and the Villa Carlotta art museum. Grand Hotel Tremezzo started welcoming guests in the early 1900s and features period details like a 19th-century billiards table and silk window coverings. Old-world touches, including bow windows, marble bathrooms and antique furnishings, are also available in the hotel's 92 guest rooms and suites. Standard accommodations have park vistas, while upgraded rooms and most suites offer views of Lake Como. Though some former travelers bemoaned their accommodations' lack of space and high rates, many appreciated the views. Past visitors were also impressed with the hotel's friendly staff and ESPA-affiliated spa. For more picturesque panoramas, guests can lounge on the property's private beach or take a dip in the floating pool set within Lake Como. When you've worked up an appetite, enjoy casual bites by the beach or the Flowers Pool (a quiet pool situated in the property's park), wine and grilled dishes in L'Escale Trattoria & Wine Bar or a gourmet Italian-inspired meal at La Terrazza Restaurant.

    Located about a mile southwest of central Oslo, this Norwegian property offers Oslo Harbor vistas and convenient access to the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, which all guests can visit for free. Standard accommodations start at 258 square feet and have modern black and yellow interiors, plus balconies, rain showers, Nespresso coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi, among other amenities. Suites feature blue or black hues and separate living areas. All room rates also include breakfast in THIEF FOODBAR, the property's main restaurant. Overall, diners appreciated the breakfast buffet's array of choices, including eggs benedict and freshly pressed juices. For a pre-dinner cocktail and some of the area's best sea views, travelers recommend visiting the rooftop. If you're a light sleeper, consider requesting a room on a lower level, since some past guests said music from the rooftop bar could be heard in their accommodations. Also keep in mind that travelers who do not book a treatment at the on-site spa will be charged extra to access the hotel's pool and saunas.

    Baccarat Hotel takes the age-old style rivalry between New York and Paris and turns it on its head. Instead of declaring a winner, the hotel marries the cities' renowned aesthetics together, creating a grandeur that delights guests. Walk into any one of the 114 accommodations and you'll find it decorated in a minimalist white color palette with sleek wooden four-poster beds, marble-topped nightstands and cashmere throws. Grab a drink at the crystal chandelier-clad bar and you'll be transported to 1920s-era Paris, or get your blood pumping at the fitness center. Whether your preference is old or new, this hotel knows how to do luxury. Along with an indoor pool and gourmet French cuisine, guests can enjoy a chauffeured joy ride anywhere within 15 blocks of the hotel in the property's house car. The hotel is also home to the Spa de La Mer, which as its name suggests, utilizes the expensive French brand in all of its treatments. But what guests love most is the location: The hotel is four blocks north of Rockefeller Center and five blocks south of Central Park, plus the Museum of Modern Art is across the street.

The Encore also impresses guests with its accommodating staff. Be forewarned: Recent travelers mentioned the hefty fees for partaking in the minibar's treats. But this is the Encore, after all, where most of the guests are high rollers prepared to splurge. If you're having trouble getting a vacancy at the Encore, consider its sister hotel and neighbor, the Wynn Las Vegas.

    This sprawling resort  with its huge emphasis on natural light, greenery and other earthy elements  is perhaps the first central Las Vegas hotel to master the feeling of seclusion rather than themed chaos. And the rooms are consistently called the best non-suite accommodations on the Strip. Recent travelers found lots to love in the Wynn the top-rated Andrea's fine dining restaurant and the posh casino, to name a few things  but not everyone loves the price. You'll pay a pretty penny for everything here (and a daily resort fee on top of that), although most visitors say it's worth it the splurge. The Wynn enjoys a centralized location with Encore, The Palazzo and The Venetian all within walking distance.

Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa's adobe-style clay exterior and thatched roofs are complemented by marble floors and hardwood furnishings. The hotel's mix of conventional and contemporary extends to its 54 accommodations, which feature authentic Mexican patterns coupled with top-notch conveniences like satellite TVs, complimentary wireless internet access and private plunge pools. For some visitors, the best part of the suites was the sense of privacy afforded by the rooms' spacious thatched terraces. Still, with the property's ample on-site amenities and gorgeous surroundings, you'll want to carve out some time to explore the rest of the resort's grounds. Start by soaking up the rays along one of two freshwater pools or by playing a round of chess in the library. Or to treat your senses, spend an afternoon at the spa getting pampered with a Xochitl-flower inflused treatment or lemongrass body wrap. (Bonus: The resort's infinity pools are some of the world's most beautiful.) And when hunger sets in, take your pick between four restaurants, dishing up everything from sushi and tapas to traditional enchiladas and ceviche. According to past guests, the food at all three dining spots is excellent and reasonably priced.

Guest rooms are bright and beautiful, with exposed, whitewashed brick walls, deep soaking tubs and panoramic views. But for most travelers, Sanctuary's highlights are located outside the rooms. Guests lounge in (or by) the infinity pool and watch their worries drop off the edge of the world. And for an extra dose of pampering, travelers head straight to the resort spa, which boasts a bevy of Asian-inspired treatments. Visitors can also sip a variety of cocktails made from premium liquor and local ingredients at Jade Bar before enjoying a meal at Elements, the hotel's restaurant run by chef Beau MacMillan. And although Sanctuary does charge a $30 resort fee per night (to cover parking and internet access, among other amenities) on top of the general room rate, many guests weren't fazed by the extra cost.

    Situated less than 4 miles south of Park City, Utah, in Deer Valley, this massive resort places powder hounds right next to the slopes of Deer Valley Resort. What's more, Montage Deer Valley's Spa Montage and ski concierge services will keep you and your equipment in top shape. But its ski-in/ski-out identity doesn't make this five-star property a winter-only escape: A massive outdoor pool, kayak and canoe routes and more than 300 miles of accessible hiking trails keep the Montage Deer Valley in season all year round. Guests rave about the spacious rooms, all of which feature cozy gas fireplaces, private balconies or patios and resort or mountain views. And once you've worked up an appetite on the slopes or trails, the resort's five eateries will satisfy a variety of cravings. Visitors also praise the property for its exceptional customer service, claiming they felt like VIPs.

    Rising above the Pacific Ocean on a verdant bluff in Punta Diamante, Banyan Tree Cabo Marqués certainly impresses visitors with its picturesque surroundings. Its villas are built into the cliff, offering panoramic ocean views. Each comes appointed with a heated pool, sun deck and terrace, all of which are made from locally sourced materials. With a fusion of Asian and Latin American design elements, the resort offers what it calls a "holistic Asian ambiance," signature to the Banyan Tree brand. Though this New Age aura permeates the entire five-star property, it's perhaps most noticeable at the spa, where therapists pamper visitors with East-meets-West massage techniques. Seeking more relaxation? Take a dip in the hotel's infinity pool, a favorite feature among past guests. Afterward, cap off your day with gourmet Thai dishes served at Saffron, a preferred dining spot, or sample the Latin- and Asian-inspired plates at La Nao or the flavorful seafood entrees at Las Rocas Grill & Bar.

    Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a little farther removed from the other luxury oceanfront properties of Palm Beach; as such, you can anticipate a little more privacy on your beach days. If you stay at this resort in Manalapan, Florida, you'll be about 12 miles south of West Palm Beach hot spots, like Clematis Street. This Preferred Legend property has taken the area by storm, with recent visitors raving about the resort's array of unique offerings. The spacious guest rooms feature beachy yellow and blue hues, and amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi access, soaking tubs and balconies overlooking the resort grounds or ocean. Meanwhile, travelers say the treatments and services offered at the serene Eau Spa are worth the extra coin; or, you can get your R&R fix alongside one of the outdoor pools. Eau Palm Beach also offers diversions for children, like the AquaNuts kids program (with physical activities for those ages 5 to 12), or the COAST teens lounge, where young lodgers can learn how to DJ and or simply hang out. And when you get hungry, try any one of the four on-site restaurants.

    The Montage Laguna Beach epitomizes the relaxed class and beauty for which Southern California is known. The property's location (right along the shore just south of downtown Laguna Beach) is a particularly popular perk among guests. Accommodations at the hotel also include feather-top beds and marble bathrooms, not to mention beautiful turn-of-the-century decor and private terraces or balconies that overlook the ocean. But don't plan on spending too much time in your room. In addition to enjoying the large beach area, you can lounge poolside, shop at the in-house boutiques, receive spa treatments and eat gourmet meals at one of three on-site restaurants. If you happen to be here for date night, recent guests say that the intimate atmosphere and the locally sourced California cuisine at Studio will set the tone for a romantic evening. There are also family programs for children, though previous visitors say that the upscale environment at Montage Laguna Beach is better suited for couples.
