  1. After a wonderful honeymoon where we ended up in a suite at the Hilton Molino Stucky Hotel in Venice I think that now this is my current favorite hotel. There is nothing like the view over Venice from their rooftop pool.

  2. The Ring in Vienna, AU = Seamless service and sophisticated rooms.

  3. The Allerton Hotel on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. Renovated and a great deal often found via Priceline’s name your own price feature.

  4. Really enjoyed my recent stay at the Sheraton Kauai. Great ocean view.

  5. The Shilla, Seoul. Lobby restaurant appetizers starting at $75 for a green salad! Also, check out the $10,000 bottle of single malt scotch. And get a complete health readout in minutes at the spa simply by grasping two electrodes for a minute or so.

  6. Our post-wedding room at the Trump Hotel in Chicago was impeccable!
