The most desirable, original and memorable hotels in the world.

More than a guidebook, Best Places to Stay is a photographic celebration of the world's most extraordinary "homes away from home." These remarkable destinations range from modern to traditional, from large to small, from simple to luxurious, from rural to urban -- all with diversity in style. Each resort has been specially selected for its distinctive or innovative features, and the book is fully illustrated with lavish commissioned photography.

Here is a sampling of the 44 hotels featured:

  • IceHotel, Jukkasajävi, Sweden
  • Grand Hotel Europa, Prague, Czech Republic
  • The Lake Palace Hotel, Udaipur, India
  • The Motu, Bora Bora, French Polynesia
  • VillIa d'Este Hotel, Lake Como, Italy
  • Sandibe Safari Lodge, Okavanga Delta, Botswana
  • Avalon, Los Angeles, California
  • The Old Inn, Shanghai, China
  • La Cavas Lodge, Mendoza, Australia
  • Perivolas Traditional Houses, Oia-Santorini, Greece.

There is a special hotel, somewhere in the world, for just about any taste. Generous text describes each hotel's history, amenities, prominent natural features and local attractions. Complete contact details are provided. Every selected hotel is a destination in itself with much to see and do -- or just perfect for relaxing in new and unusual surroundings.
