The Best: HOTEL

The Best Hotels

As the year draws to a close, we thought it would be fun to ask a few of our globe-trotting colleagues to weigh in on some of their best travel experiences from the past twelve months. We've already found out where they had their most memorable meals this year. Next, we asked them: where was your favorite place to stay?

Borgo

"[Located] in my new favorite region of Europe and honestly one of the most complete hotel stays I've ever had. Owner Aldo Melpigano has created a masterpiece. A stunning property that makes up its own village, it is both stylish and rustic. Amazing staff, wonderful food and set in one of the most beautiful countrysides on the planet." ~Jos Davies, Global Head of Marketing, Black Tomato
Dominica

"You get your own large, private villa with a pool and you’re completely secluded, with the most amazing views." ~Anders Lindström, Director of Communications USA, Norwegian Air

"The history of this glamorous alpine resort is inextricably bound to the five-star superior Kulm, St. Moritz’s original luxury hotel, which dates to 1856—and because the hotel’s recent multi-million dollar room renovation was overseen by French designer Pierre-Yves Rochon who created sumptuous suites notable for Swiss pine interiors, a hallmark of the Engadin." ~Mark A. Thompson, PhD, writer/editor/journalist/photographer

Mac Hotel

"UNESCO heritage site in a former Chinese pharmacy where shoes aren't allowed anywhere in the hotel! The staff are amazing, the rates are very good and you've got your own private India right outside your door. " ~Mac Malikowski, editor, Mouthfeel magazine
Intercontinental Porto

"Porto is definitely one of the most romantic cities I've ever visited and the InterContinental, housed in a former palace that faces the city's main square, really enhances the experience." ~Bryan van Gorder, editor, OutTraveler
