    I have two. For very upscale, the Savoy in London. When I stayed there it was not on my dime(my company paid). This is truly a five star hotel, a London icon.


    For relaxed and funky, I like the Hotel Monaco in San Francisco. Have stayed here twice.

    Any Park Hyatts around the world. Our favorite is the Park Hyatt D.C. Their artwork include pieces from the Civil War.

    I've been around the world and aye aye aye......................thinsk Lisa Stansfiend. the nicest hotel I ever stayed in.....for service, pool, beach....was the Fairmont in Dubai, UAE. I was on the executive suite, the had my breakfast ahead of time, after one day........room was clean after you finished breakfast, etc. pool and beach...........amazing.

    Also, the Maura in India, New Delhi, if memory serves, was nice.........and bit hoity toity..........but still nice. Where Obama stayed with his 200 contingency.

    I also like the Hilton in Athens, not as many ammenties, b ut the Greeks are so laid back.....great location, looking over the Acropolis............everything is very European, and they leave a gift for you in the room every other day....i.e., a bottle of wine, fresh fruit, etc. Very nice also. those would be my three favorites...

    I've stayed in some pretty great places all over the states. as a whole, I like DoubleTree hotels. There was one in Chicago (River North) that was really great. the cookie upon checkin isn't a bad thing either!

    For its spectacular location, architecture, amenities, and convenience, my favorite would be the Cliff Lodge at Snowbird in Utah. Its seven-story atrium and entire glass wall facing the ski slope provides a fantastic view of where one will be having the day's pleasures. One's skis are checked at the back door, where one can then ski down the bunny slope to the tram, which immediately whisks skiers to the top of the hill, and the short bunny hill rope tow return at the end of the day delivers one back to the ski check-in. The swimming pools, saunas, spas, etc., are on the roof, where one has more spectacular views for apres ski. Even the sauna has a picture window with a view down Little Cottonwood Canyon to see Salt Lake. There is also a roof-top restaurant, and breakfast has the atrium view on the ground floor. In short, for sheer convenience of skiing and of dealing with all its logistics, the Cliff Lodge is my favorite out of a lot of great ski destinations in the West. Plus, the skiing at Snowbird and neighboring Alta is great.
