    Sitting at the base of Aspen Mountain on the southern edge of town, The Little Nell caters to snow junkies with on-site services such as a ski concierge team (who can secure everything from lift tickets to ski rentals) and an equipment storage center. However, guests say that the hotel's proximity to powder isn't the only reason to book. The Little Nell's two in-house restaurants – element47 and Ajax Tavern – earn high praise for their artfully prepared plates, and the hotel spa is ideal for post-skiing relaxation. What's more, The Little Nell is well-equipped to welcome families thanks to a variety of kid-friendly amenities, such as board games, ski and bike rentals, car seats, strollers and more. Although you won't be spending much time indoors, you can look forward to resting up in a spacious and inviting guest room, surrounded by warm, soothing cream-colored hues, a gas fireplace, a well-stocked minibar and a flat-screen TV. And, like they do at The Little Nell's sister property, the Ojai Valley Inn in California, recent guests give the customer service two thumbs up, saying that the hotel's employees were some of the nicest they'd ever met. The only downside? The daily resort fee, which does not cover parking fees.

    Nestled on the shore just steps from Newport's popular Cliff Walk, The Chanler's strongest feature is its breathtaking scenery. But there are plenty more compelling reasons to stay here.

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

The same enticing combination can be found at the spa, where treatments are inspired by Indian wellness 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.

The hotel doesn't house an on-site restaurant, but it does offer free continental breakfast each morning and is home to The Well Bar, a lounge built in St. Augustine's first two-car garage. When you're in need of a bite to eat, you can walk to Old Town or hop on one of the hotel's loaner bikes.

Aside from the location, recent visitors raved about the rooms, particularly the comfy beds and spacious bathrooms. Accommodations also come equipped with minifridges, coffee makers, complimentary Wi-Fi access and personal butlers – perhaps the biggest delight among lodgers. While the property doesn't have its own on-site restaurant (though it does offer a free continental breakfast each morning), recent visitors didn't seem to mind; travelers said their butlers and the front desk staff were quick to offer suggestions and advice for guests. But after you've explored the Charleston dining scene, consider heading back to The Spectator to sample some of the handcrafted cocktails at its bar, which is designed to look like a 1920s-era speakeasy. The hotel lacks a fitness center, but you can get in your exercise with the hotel's complimentary bikes.
