    You'll feel like you stepped back in time once you've stayed at the Ocean House's classic New England retreat.

    • Free Parking

    • Free WiFi

    Unlike other hotels in Santa Fe, New Mexico, The Inn of the Five Graces does not try to steep you in Southwestern culture.

Previous visitors favorably described their rooms as cozy, exotic and bursting with color, praising the hotel's harmonious mélange of atmosphere and amenities (including complimentary Wi-Fi access). The same enticing combination can be found at the spa, where treatments are inspired by Tibetan and East Indian traditions. The hotel also excels in customer service; many travelers describe the staff as helpful and remark on the delicious breakfast waiting for them in the dining room, in the courtyard or even in their personal suites. Though breakfast is included in your room rate, you will have to pay for dinner at 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar (but guests insist that the French flavors are worth the relatively steep menu prices). And though you might feel worlds away at this Relais & Châteaux property, you're actually just a few blocks from the Plaza.

    5.0-star Hotel Class
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    Situated high on the cliffs overlooking the waters of the Côte d'Azur, the Chateau de La Chèvre d'Or regularly wows guests. The killer views, service and restaurants (one of which holds two Michelin stars) were just a few of the highlights among a long list of pros travelers couldn't help but gush about. Standard guest rooms are classic and chic, featuring tiled floors and French country-style decor in addition to Nespresso coffee machines and complimentary Wi-Fi. But what makes accommodations so unique is that they aren't concentrated in one place, but rather spread out around the medieval village of Ezra that this Relais & Châteaux outpost calls home. And with such a picturesque location, relaxation couldn't come more naturally. Guests can recharge at the on-site spa, fitness center and pool, or take a stroll along one of the many oceanfront terraces dotted throughout the property. There are also gorgeous Mediterranean-style gardens on-site that cascade down the cliffs where the chateau sits. Along with the Michelin-starred La Chevre d'Or, guests can choose to dine at three other on-site eateries, all of which offer ocean views or alfresco dining.

For a more relaxing time, book an in-room massage or lounge by Triple Creek's pool. Just note that room rates here are pretty pricey, but you can breathe easy knowing that meals, drinks and select activities are included.

    Nestled along Lake Massawippi's shores – about 85 miles east of Montreal – Manoir Hovey impresses guests with its luxurious amenities and serene ambiance. Each room comes equipped with L'Occitane toiletries, flat-screen TVs and Nespresso coffee makers, but if you're looking to inspire a little extra romance, spring for a treetops suite outfitted with a king-sized canopy bed and wood-burning fireplace. According to previous guests, swinging in a hammock or taking in the scenery by canoe both make for pleasant ways to while away warmer afternoons. During the winter, you can snowshoe and go cross-country skiing at the nearby Mont-Orford National Park. A meal at Le Hatley Restaurant, which serves locally sourced Quebec fare, is a must-visit according to previous patrons.

    If you have a trip booked to Sorrento, Italy, recent guests say that the Bellevue Syrene is the only place to stay in this Amalfi Coast town. And considering all the hotel’s offerings, it should come as no surprise that guests not only fall in love with their time here but vow to come back again and again. The Bellevue Syrene, which sits perched over the cliffs of Sorrento, has all the makings for an unforgettable hotel experience. Here, you can eye Mount Vesuvius from the comfort of your own balcony, and dine on fine regional cuisine and wine at the on-site restaurant or wine cellar.

In addition to sweeping ocean views (available in every room category except the Superior Courtyard View), rooms here come equipped with lots of color and cozy comforts such as Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs and minibars. Outside of the rooms you’ll also find a fitness center and spa with a hammam. And should you require transportation, the hotel can arrange car, boat or helicopter transfers.
