    The Peninsula Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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 Parking
    Free WiFi

    The stunning Harbour Town area is a great place to station yourself during a Hilton Head trip. And its standout accommodations, The Inn & Club at Harbour Town (part of The Sea Pines Resort), is certainly one of the most popular resorts on the island. Guests who choose to make the (somewhat long) trek here delight in the lush scenery, the luxurious rooms and the professional, approachable and welcoming staff. Rooms come with large flat-screen TVs, blackout-lined window treatments and spacious bathrooms with soaking tubs and Molton Brown toiletries. Visitors like to venture out of the hotel to eat (particularly at The Quarterdeck, one of Hilton Head's favorites), but most insist that you stick close to home for Sunday brunch. Harbour Town rests in the bottom boot of Hilton Head Island.

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 964 reviewsTripAdvisor (964)

    Though it's only been open since February 2017, the Pendry San Diego has already made a long-lasting impression on its guests. Reviewers raved about the hotel’s ample amenities, well-appointed interiors and unbeatable location in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Recent guests also praised the chic decor in rooms, which have Fili D'oro bedding, complimentary Wi-Fi access and 50-inch TVs. Other standout hotel amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a spa, a rooftop pool and six restaurants and bars. Lodgers were appreciative of the on-site dining options (especially the seafood-focused Lionfish), but also suggested guests take advantage of the Pendry's stellar location by visiting the Gaslamp Quarter's trendy bars and restaurants. And since this property is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts family, members of the iPrefer loyalty program can apply or accrue points here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 833 reviewsTripAdvisor (833)
    Free WiFi

    Named after John Dewberry, one of the South's most polarizing and powerful real estate developers, The Dewberry Charleston is the result of an almost eight-year renovation of a former federal building. Designed to exude old-world Charleston, South Carolina, charm, all of the property's 155 guest rooms and suites feature hand-painted wallpaper by a local artist, chandeliers, queen- or king-sized beds dressed in Irish linens, flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms with glass-enclosed showers. Recent visitors raved about the beautiful and clean accommodations, although some bemoaned the lack of coffee makers and work desks. Should you need to conduct business while staying here, three event venues, including a ballroom and its adjacent pre-function space, are available. Fitness buffs, meanwhile, can work out in the fitness studio, borrow a bike for a ride around town or participate in rooftop yoga classes. Once you've worked up an appetite, sit down for a meal at Henrietta's, where international dishes are served in a mahogany-paneled dining room with Roaring '20s-themed artwork. After filling up on gourmet fare, reserve The Dewberry's Volvo house car to reach sights like The Battery and the Charleston City Market.

    Baccarat Hotel New York

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 555 reviewsTripAdvisor (555)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    Recent travel lovers gave the Encore's casino high marks for style, especially in the lobby and common areas. And they appreciate the decor  a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian design elements. The rooms aren't as design-heavy, but still earn high praise for floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious setups and overall cleanliness and maintenance. 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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 23330 reviewsTripAdvisor (23330)
    Free WiFi

    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.
