Most Luxurious Hotels

Gogobot users don't just look for run of the mill luxury. They want something different and inspiring --- and the Most Luxurious Hotels list incorporates everything from surprisingly stylish in Vegas to Rio de Janeiro decadence.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

3708 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Modern glitz and glam, with thoughtful touches like hammam spas, pop art in most available nooks and crannies, and its place front and center on the Las Vegas scene earns the Cosmopolitan its number one place on the Luxurious Hotels list.
I think Cosmopolitan is now my hotel of choice in Vegas. I love the tastefully decorated rooms and ... read more
the practical floorplan. I certainly didn't mind the the beautiful strip view from the balcony either. There are no shortage of luxury on the strip but what Cosmopolitan offer is more than just some a Jacuzzi tub or and shiny granite kitchenette. It is a very thoughtful hotel and a showcase for some intriguing modern art. I enjoyed all the coffee table books, paintings and sculptures. The hotel lobby alone is detour worthy. I only have one complaint. Why can't I have a coffee machine in the room? Would that basic kitchen equipment really destroy the chic ambiance?

Dream Downtown Hotel

355 West 16th St., New York City, NY 10011
A hotspot in the Meatpacking District where you may see a celebrity but will surely have an incredible time at the rooftop PHD bar and poolside Beach bar, the Dream Downtown is one hot New York hotel.
The hotel is very stylish, modern with grandiose ceilings and luxurious decor. The staff is ... read more
incredibly friendly and helpful and the concierge will go out of their way to make sure you are happy and comfortable.

Hotel del Coronado

1500 Orange Ave, Coronado, CA 92118
The Hotel del Coronado is distinguished among San Diego hotels, but owns a place on a worldwide list as well. A historic oceanfront property filled with luxurious touches like its award-winning spa, lore of past guests, and at least one ghost, Gogobot users love the Del's romantic setting and stunning location on the beach.
This place is absolutely unique. It is so big and romantic. I felt like being in Marylin's film when ... read more
I was here. We went only for lunch so I can't say how hospitality is. However I liked very much comon areas and the direct access on the beach. There are also boutiques inside. Lunch was fine and absolutely relaxing.

Fairmont Kea Lani Maui

4100 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, Maui, HI 96753
This Maui hotel is lauded for being incredibly tasteful with great service. The fact that every room is actually a suite doesn't hurt, and neither do the pristine white sandy beaches.
Gorgeous grounds and excellent service, whether you are spending the night or stopping in for a meal ... read more
at their excellent restaurants. Luxurious grounds, lobby, and pool.

Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago

401 N. Wabash Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611
Opulent suites with a Michelin-starred onsite restaurant, a fitness room with excellent views of the city, and touches like cucumbers in the water contribute to Trump International's Travelers' Favorites status.
I've stayed in all but one of the 5 star properties in Chicago and I'd rate this one the best. The ... read more
rooms are exceptional -- spacious, well appointed, great design, and exceptional views. The fitness facilities are large and have the latest equipment. Service is also top notch. The only things I didn't like about the property are 1) the excessive Trump branding and Ivanka propaganda and 2) the slow elevators. One thing to note: if you are offered coffee with your wake up call, expect it to show up on the bill. It isn't a complementary service.

The Peninsula Hong Kong

Salisbury Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China
High tea (a legacy of Britain's governorship of Hong Kong) aside, the Peninsula has hosted a long list of luminaries, and operates, according to the Gogobot community, like a 'well-oiled machine', complete with a top-notch spa and optional helicopter tours.
Superb. Was met on the airbridge from my arriving flight by hotel staff and spirited through ... read more
immigration and customs into one of the hotel's Rolls Royce cars. From arrival to being in our suite couldn't have taken more than 40 minutes. As for the stay itself, everything from the suite through to service provided throughout were uniformly superb. Nothing was any trouble for the management and staff at this well-oiled machine.

The Broadmoor

1 Lake Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80906

I travel a lot for work and spend a significant amount of time in 5-star Westin, Ritz, and Waldorf ... read more
properties so I say with great confidence that The Broadmoor is the truest 5-star I have stayed at in the States. The Broadmoor has an air of regality about it but, at the same time, lacks the pretentious vibe of many other high-end hotels. I love waking up each morning at the Broadmoor, opening my drapes to watch the sun rise over the Rockies, and breathing in the fresh air over a cup of coffee. That might be why I love the Broadmoor so much--each day starts in my image of perfection. Each evening you could end with a drink or dinner at one of their fabulous on-property establishments (my personal favorite is the Bee--an excellently recreated English piano bar) or you could relax in the outdoor hot tub soaking up the star-filled night sky. However you decide to start or end your day at The Broadmoor I guarantee that the beginning, end, and everything in between will be a spectacular experience.

everything worked flawlessly here. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Rooms are elegant and cozy. The bed is super comfortable and the bathroom is also great, roomy and with great water pressure. The lobby is on the 8th floor and it has some nice artworks and an atrium with chairs and sofas for you to relax and enjoy the nice environment. The location of the hotel is also great. Walk two blocks up to Alder Street between 9th and 11th and you will find a really big food truck pod, which is the best way to explore Portland's famous street food scene.

6 Jumeirah Beach Road, PO Box 11416, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
With a private beach and thoughtful beach bags including sunblock, a multiplicity of restaurants to choose from and surprisingly capacious rooms, the Jumeirah is an excellent luxury alternative to the Burj al-Arab.
This is an amazing hotel. Possibly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. They upgraded us to ... read more
a larger room and boy was it HUGE. There was a king sized bed as well as a fold out sofa and they brought in a crib for our daughter. This was complete with her own stuffed animal and baby amenities pack. Our room had a great view of the Burj, which is beautiful when it is all lit up at night. There are over 30 restaurants (at least that's what they said), pools, lots of beach front property and it wasn't crowded at all. All in all the staff did their absolute best to make this trip amazing for us and we will be back!

The Four Seasons Hualalai on the Big Island is fantastic. In fact, my wife and I agree that this we ... read more
had our single best family vacation ever at Hualalai. The service quality is superb (our3 kids had customized candy trays waiting for them upon arrival!), the pool area comfortably accommodate young kids (non-swimmers) and older kids, the restaurants on the property are kid friendly, you can make smores on the beach, etc. As an added bonus, there are always movie stars running around and my kids hung out with Julia Roberts' children (who were very sweet). My children have asked on numerous occassions to go back and we will make it happen sometime during 2011. It really is heaven on earth.

I felt like a freaking king (or queen I suppose) when I stayed here! Yes, it is a swanky hotel that ... read more
I could probably only afford to stay in once in a blue moon, but c'mon, you just gotta splurge sometimes, you know? Everything was so modern and trendy that I felt kind of guilty moving some of the furniture around and ruining the mood. I loved all the awesome snacks, including the green tea, they provide to the guests. I remember coming here for a party once too and everyone was really impressed with the decor. We also dined in the restaurant on the first floor and the food was super delicious, even though it was a bit pricey.

Off a boat from Krabi then docking in Phuket, an arrival into the paradise of the Westin Siray Bay ... read more
Resort is literally a rags-to-riches sort of experience after weeks of backpacking up Thailand's west coast. When I travel, I like to rough it rugged then finish with a pampering stay in a suite and an infinity pool. The service in Thailand is generally warm and kind, but the staff at the Westin takes it to heart assuring the experience accommodates your every expectation. Our suite was perched along the hill facing a cove, where from a spectacular sunset almost unreal seemed part of the Westin experience. Concierge services took us to a few of Phuket's best walking spots and recommended for us two of my favorite meals — Raya restaurant and the night market's smorgasbord of local street food. If even in the city for just a few days, staying at the Westin is innately a part of a perfect Phuket getaway.
