    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 luxurious 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 Gualtiero Marchesi.
