Where your accommodations exude an authentic sense of place… no matter what corner of the world you're exploring
Where You Stay Is Important
You travel to experience someplace new, and that should start with authentic ambiance and design in the places you stay. Where you'll know your destination from the moment you wake up. Posh city-center properties that range from ultra-modern showplaces to landmark "grand hotels." Castles and fortresses that made history. Small boutique hotels with hidden secrets. Our hotels, resorts, and lodges on our land journeys throughout the world offer accommodations that reflect the uniqueness of their cultural landscapes and make the most of their natural settings… making your stay uniquely memorable.
Stay inside the national and state parks of the US and Canada at places like Yellowstone’s Old Faithful Inn – the original “National Park Rustic” style lodge – and Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge in Denali State Park, Alaska… so you can enjoy the parks at the most beautiful times of day – early morning, at sunset, and at night for stargazing. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, rest easy at a Four Seasons resort, and in British Columbia, your home away from home is Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Our hotels are steeped in history, like the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, which radiates the elegance of a bygone era right next door to the historic railway depot where you’ll board the train to the Grand Canyon. Our city-center hotels are iconic grande dames, like The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, in Denver. And our hotels far from the madding crowd – like Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan, where cars are not permitted – are hidden jewels, waiting to be discovered by you!
Our handpicked hotels are among the finest in Europe. Ideally located, they are renowned for their service, hospitality and ambiance, embodying the essence of their destination. Set in the heart of Venice on the Grand Canal, the historic Gritti Palace is an icon of Venetian style. Ireland’s emerald landscapes provide a royal setting for Ashford Castle, voted among Europe’s top ten resort hotels. The legendary grande dame of Portuguese hotels, Porto’s Infante de Sagres is steeped in a rich heritage of luxury and hospitality. Historic Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, an opulent landmark graced by gardens in Bellagio, offers guests a front-row seat overlooking beautiful Lake Como. Visionary architect Frank Gehry designed the Hotel Marqués de Riscal to blend the character of Spain’s Rioja region with the wine produced there. Old world elegance reigns at Vienna’s Hotel Imperial and views of the Adriatic and Old Town enchant at the Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik.
In Asia, the world’s finest hotels open their doors with impeccable service and hospitality, from India’s award-winning Oberoi hotels to the illustrious Raffles Hotel Singapore and Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton properties throughout. In Africa, private game lodges like Sabi Sabi and Cape Town’s One&Only rank among the “World’s Best” and mobile tented camps follow the wildlife. In Australia and New Zealand, ideally located city-center hotels make experiencing must-see sites easy and convenient. In Latin America, iconic resorts offer eco-experiences, refined, responsible and right in the heart of the scenery you’ve come to see. Imagine seeing the sun rise on the Taj Mahal… watching Africa’s “Big Five” move across the Serengeti… waking up to views of 9th-century Borobudur in Yogyakarta… viewing the sun setting on magical Marrakech… all from the comfort of your room.
