Could your Instagram account use some more glamour? Then stop with those pictures of your cat and take the upcoming summer vacation as an opportunity to enjoy a fabulous stay at one of these stylish hotels – and post about it. The following six IRMA favourites are breathtakingly beautiful from every angle. A stunning home away from home for the summer of your life.
THE LONDON WEST HOLLYWOOD AT BEVERLY HILLS
It’s suites only at this glamorous hotel just off the Sunset Strip. Suites are stylish in a Hollywood-meets-Beverly Hills way and the rooftop pool deck is the place to hang out by day or by night. Cocktails and visiting DJs give the happy hour here a special spin.
THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL, L.A.
Affectionately known as The Pink Palace, this legendary hotel has been a favorite with countless Hollywood stars and other celebrities for more than a century. Set in the heart of Beverly Hills, it is surrounded by lush, tropical gardens. Mingle with the stars over dinner at the famous Polo Lounge and enjoy complimentary poolside mini ice-cream sundaes and mojito pop treats at the palm-tree lined pool.
HOTEL UNIQUE SAO PAULO
The name couldn’t be more appropriate. This striking hotel rises above Sao Paulo like an ocean liner, a must for architecture and design lovers. In the rooms, unique finds and accessories from around the globe add to the cosmopolitan vibe. From the rooftop terrace you can enjoy stunning city views from the pool that runs along the edge.
PENINSULA HOTEL PARIS
Hello, gorgeous! There is no understated luxury at the opulent new Peninsula Paris, which goes all out, with vast corridors, polished marble floors and sparkling chandeliers. Of course there is a spa, rooftop dining, a swimming pool that is an oasis of calm, the latest technology everywhere and custom cars in “Peninsula Green.” It doesn’t get any more luxurious than this!
JK PLACE CAPRI
I can’t decide what’s better: the stunning view over the Gulf of Naples or the incredibly chic interiors at this gleaming white seaside villa on the island of Capri. Set on a cliff above the Marina Grande, it feels like a sophisticated private villa of wealthy friends. Friends with incredible taste (or the best interior designer) – it’s all about laid-back seaside glamour with stylish white interiors and contrasting navy blue highlights.
THE RALEIGH MIAMI BEACH
A Miami Beach favourite since the 1940s, The Raleigh is a true South Beach classic. We love the beautiful Art Deco architecture and its somewhat hidden location just north of busy Lincoln Road. It has one of the hottest hotel pool scenes in Miami, so get out that classy one-piece and splash in the curved swimming pool like Esther Williams did in the 50s.
THE MARK, NEW YORK
Just steps from Central Park, this elegant Upper East Side classic couldn‘t be better located. Take one of their custom bicycles for a ride in the park and don‘t forget to bring along a picnic ‘lunch-to-go’ created by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who has a restaurant in the hotel. And of course we love the Ladurée welcome macarons!
