    Grand Hotel Tremezzo
    Tremezzina
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1303 reviewsTripAdvisor (1303)
    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.

    THE THIEF
    Oslo
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2079 reviewsTripAdvisor (2079)
    Free WiFi

    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.

The property, which completed an extensive renovation in 2018, is home to a lake, a spa, a pool and an 18-hole golf course.

When it comes to accommodations, rooms come dressed in elegant decor – just what you'd expect if you were staying in a castle. In-room amenities include Nespresso coffee makers, minibars, televisions and safes. Dromoland Castle is home to multiple dining venues and experiences, too. Earl of Thomond is the hotel's main fine dining restaurant, offering a la carte and five-course meals, and Figtree Restaurant is a casual eatery located in the golf clubhouse.

    Free WiFi

    Situated in London's St. James's neighborhood by Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and the National Gallery, The Stafford London is a great option for guests who want to unwind in style after sightseeing. The property's accommodations are spread throughout three buildings – the Main House, the Mews building and the Carriage House – and have neutral color schemes with floral accents and high-end fabrics. Standard rooms reside in the Main House and have marble bathrooms, free Wi-Fi access, HD TVs and Nespresso coffee machines. Suites come with sitting areas and extra perks like iPod docking stations and complimentary airport transfers to Heathrow Airport (when staying two or more nights). Recent lodgers appreciated these amenities and the homey room decor, although some said the customer service from the hotel's employees could stand to improve. Visitors also enjoyed the property's food and beverage options. An autograph-filled bar, a 380-year-old wine cellar and The Game Bird's Champagne Bar are available for libations, while afternoon tea and modern British pub dishes are served in The Game Bird's dining room. Wine tastings with the hotel's sommelier can also be arranged for a fee.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 556 reviewsTripAdvisor (556)
    Free WiFi

    Timeless elegance can be found at The Beaumount hotel, located on a peaceful Mayfair square in London. Called the essence of "London luxury" by one recent traveler, the 73-room hotel is close to boutiques, galleries, restaurants and Hyde Park. Inside, the property has a 24-hour fitness center, a salon and a spa, as well as a restaurant and a bar. The Colony Grill Room serves American and European dishes and features maroon leather booths and black-and-white portraits of celebrities, much like New York City and London club rooms from the 1920s. For drinks and snacks, guests can visit The American Bar, which recent patrons said offers some of the best cocktails in London. When you're ready for a little R&R, retreat to one of the property's art deco-style accommodations. All have original artwork, king-sized beds and bathrooms with rain showers and heated floors. Room rates also cover local chauffeur service in a vintage car, daily continental breakfast and in-room Wi-Fi. According to past visitors, one of the highlights of this hotel is the top-notch service. The attentive staff members go out of their way to make guests feel at home, even though The Beaumont has a no-tipping policy.

    Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa
    St. Andrews, GB
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1938 reviewsTripAdvisor (1938)
    Free WiFi

    While this St. Andrews, Scotland, resort no doubt caters to golfers, recent guests say you don’t have to golf to enjoy all that the Old Course Hotel has to offer. While guests rave about The Duke’s (the on-site golf course), but many say that the five-star customer service is just as memorable. From arrival to departure, travelers say the gleeful staff members made them feel incredibly welcome and taken care of, and that no request was ever too much. Another standout for guests was the hotel’s accommodations, which come equipped with comforts like complimentary Wi-Fi access, minibars, flat-screen TVs and robes and slippers. Lodgers highly recommend upgrading to a suite, which includes more room, separate seating areas, mini kitchens and views of the golf course. For those who didn’t come to play the links, you can book a treatment at the on-site spa, work up a sweat at the fitness center or take a dip in the on-site pool and Jacuzzi.   Outdoor adventures, like horseback riding on the beach, are also available. Dining options range from white fine dining at Road Hole Restaurant to comfort food at Hams Hame. You can find the Old Course Hotel just a short walk northwest of the center of St. Andrews.

    Il Salviatino
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 828 reviewsTripAdvisor (828)

    Located about 5 miles northeast of Florence in the town of Fiesole, this restored 15th-century villa attracts guests with its picturesque views and gardens. Visitors are equally impressed by this Preferred Hotels & Resorts outpost's guest rooms and suites, which feature traditional Tuscan details like locally made linens and high ceilings. Though some past travelers noted a few maintenance issues in their accommodations, most appreciated the rooms' comfortable beds and modern conveniences like mirrors with built-in TVs and free Wi-Fi. After settling into your digs, venture outside to the hotel's gardens, where you'll find a two-tier infinity-edge pool, which is open seasonally between April and October, and some of the property's best vistas. For those in need of respite from the sun, head inside for a massage at the spa or an Italian-inspired meal at La Cucina. Or, if you'd rather dine in Florence, take advantage of the hotel's complimentary shuttle service to and from downtown.

    Hotel Bayerischer Hof
    Munich
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1478 reviewsTripAdvisor (1478)
    Free WiFi

    The Hotel Bayerischer Hof lives and breathes luxury. Mimicking its location in Munich's historic Old Town, the hotel has an Old World feel to it but features updated amenities one would expect at a modern boutique hotel. For starters, the property boasts an expansive wellness center. The Blue Spa itself takes up four stories and offers a Finnish sauna, an aromatherapy steam bath, a tanning bed and yoga sessions, in addition to a laundry list of treatments. The spa area also houses an indoor lap pool (appropriately decorated in blue tiles) that features a sliding glass roof and an adjoining terrace equipped with lounge chairs, umbrellas and scenic city views. The gym features rooftop views, too, and guests can even book a session with one of the on-site personal trainers (for an additional fee). Entertainment is another one of Bayerischer Hof's strong suits. The hotel has its own night club, piano bar, theater and movie lounge. Accommodations are a mix of modern and classic rooms: All are equipped with flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access, minibars and Molton Brown bath amenities, as well as fresh water and fruit upon arrival. Guests liked that the rooms were so quiet considering the hotel's placement in popular Old Town. Travelers also appreciated the top-notch staff and that city attractions and amenities were just a short stroll away. Keep in mind though, considering all the hotel's great perks, you're going to be spending a lot of money to stay here. What's more, the hotel is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here.
