    Wentworth Mansion
    Charleston, SC
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 962 reviewsTripAdvisor (962)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Guests rave about Wentworth Mansion, applauding its long-standing commitment to the building's history and its ability to deliver on contemporary luxury. Constructed in the late 1800s, the Wentworth Mansion exudes old-world charm, meaning it's also the perfect Charleston home base for history buffs. Lodgers particularly praise the elegant decor, fantastic customer service, on-site spa, evening brandies and sherries, and complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Rooms include spacious bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, fireplaces or outside porches and, in some suites, sunrooms. Though guests say the rooms and overall atmosphere are relaxing, they note that the luxury doesn't come cheap. However, its location is another feather in its cap; The Battery is nearby, as is the South Carolina Aquarium. Also, keep in mind that this hotel is a part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, which means that members of the INVITED rewards program can earn and redeem points here.

Harbour Town rests in the bottom boot of Hilton Head Island.

    The Lowell Hotel New York
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 333 reviewsTripAdvisor (333)
    Free WiFi

    Perched on the Upper East Side, just a couple blocks from Fifth Avenue's sleek storefronts, The Lowell Hotel New York provides travelers with easy access to iconic city attractions and venerable department stores. But that's not the only reason recent guests adore this stylish boutique. The Lowell exudes a serene, elegant ambiance, further enhanced by its calming gold, cream and white color scheme. By New York standards, The Lowell is small (74 rooms and suites); however, many previous travelers call the hotel's quiet, cozy atmosphere the perfect retreat from the buzzing city blocks. Accommodations come appointed with luxurious extras, such as down comforters, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access – all major perks, according to previous visitors. The refreshing afternoon teatime, complete with Devonshire cream-topped scones and finger sandwiches, takes place in the second-floor Pembroke Room and also earns a nod of approval from recent guests. Keep in mind, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here.

    The Greenwich Hotel
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 538 reviewsTripAdvisor (538)
    Free WiFi

    This ultra-trendy Tribeca hotel is often exalted by guests as "outstanding," "stylish" and "bohemian." Each of The Greenwich's 88 rooms and suites features eclectic accents that vary from Moroccan-tiled bathrooms to fine Tibetan silk rugs. And though no two accommodations are the same, travelers rave about the luxurious room amenities, which include flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and stocked minibars. But that's not all this chic hotel has going for it. The pool and Shibui spa earn high marks from previous visitors, as does the hip Locanda Verde restaurant – a casual Italian spot known for its zesty fare. While staying here, be sure to keep an eye out for celebrities; this discreet hotel serves as a stomping ground for A-listers (after all, the hotel is owned by actor Robert De Niro). And Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades.

    You'll feel like you stepped back in time once you've stayed at the Ocean House's classic New England retreat. This historic resort has been lovingly restored to its original design, down to window placements and interior wall hues. But recent guests don't visit for nostalgia's sake. Rather, they come for the courteous and attentive service staff and the secluded feel of the resort's grounds. They also come for the luxurious accommodations, equipped with high-end amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, wooden furnishings and Molton Brown toiletries. Recent guests also reported returning year after year to indulge in rejuvenating spa treatments at OH! Spa and treat their taste buds to award-winning cuisine and signature cocktails at Ocean House's several dining venues. You'll find the Ocean House located in Watch Hill on the south coast of Rhode Island, about 40 miles south of Newport.

    The Little Nell
    Aspen, CO
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 477 reviewsTripAdvisor (477)
    Free WiFi

    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. 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.
