Coziest Hotel Fireplaces

Filed Under: United States, top hotels

The weather's getting colder, which means it's time to start thinking about all things winter: itchy turtlenecks, the scent of pine, Aunt Edna's eggnog, and crackling fires that warm your heart and toes. We're big fans of fireplaces, whether for cuddling with your sweetie and a cup of cocoa, or just for cozying up with the gals while catching up on gossip. Check out Travel Channel and's top picks for hotel fireplaces.

Library Hotel
New York
There's a great fireplace in the "writer's den" portion of the Library Hotel's Bookmarks Lounge, which also has a bar, an outdoor terrace, and an enclosed "greenhouse" space.
The Jefferson
Washington, DC
The Jefferson is our favorite boutique hotel in Washington, DC, with elegant guest rooms and classic American architecture. We love the colonial touches here, like a working dumbwaiter and the intimate library seen above.
Fifteen Beacon
Every single guest room at the charming Fifteen Beacon boutique hotel has a gas fireplace, making it our top pick for a romantic hotel in Boston (it doesn't hurt that the hotel is perched in quaint Beacon Hill, surrounded by hidden gardens, antique shops, and gorgeous brick Federal-style architecture).
Terranea Resort
Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes might be in sunny southern California, but come nightfall, there's no reason why good friends can't sit around a lovely fire recounting the day's adventures and roasting marshmallows. Guests can here can also enjoy a small fireplace in the reception area of the hotel's spa; in addition, one of the spa's treatment rooms has a fireplace next to its copper tub.
Ayres Hotel
The outside of the Ayres Hotel may look like your typical airport hotel along a big highway, but the inside will surprise and delight you with its ornate, European-like decor. The lobby is home to this 400-year-old stone fireplace from France.
The Greenwich Hotel
New York
The Greenwich Hotel is our favorite boutique hotel in New York City, and charming, Bohemian-looking spaces like the Drawing Room -- complete with fireplace -- are part of the reason why.
W Boston
The W Boston may be one of the city's most modern, most fashionable hotels, but its designers were also a bit practical: Guests coming in from the chilly New England air will appreciate this fireplace found in the lobby (though no promises on how much heat it's giving off).
Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghiradelli Square
San Francisco
Every room in the Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghiradelli Square is a 1-, 2-, or 3-bedroom unit, and they feel more like apartments than hotel rooms. Each one has a living room with a gas fireplace.
Gramercy Park Hotel
New York
Rose Bar is one of the poshest bars in New York City, and it features the toasty fireplace shown here. The Roof Club and Garden at the hotel is home to a stone fireplace, too.
The Huntington Hotel
San Francisco
This hotel's lovely spa, which is open to the public, includes an indoor pool area that is home to this gas fireplace.
