Bardessono (Yountville, California)

Bardessono (Yountville, California)

Travelers know Napa Valley as wine country, but they may not know about this intimate-sized hotel where each room is designed to be a private spa. What sets Bardessono apart from others is its focus on sustainability and efficient use of both land and energy. From locally grown foods, complimentary yoga lessons and even a LEED Platinum Certification -- just one of only 3 hotels in the US to have such a designation -- this hotel marries sustainable design with service to make for a truly relaxing experience. 960 1280

Waldorf Astoria Orlando (Orlando, Florida)

Waldorf Astoria Orlando (Orlando, Florida)

If you’re headed to Orlando, chances are you’ve got the whole family with you to visit many of the theme parks located there. Let the kids enjoy feeling like royalty all day long – you’ve got your own castle to return to as night falls. Waldorf Astoria Orlando is modern and luxurious with excellent service to match. Try the Bull and Bear -- one of a half-dozen in-house restaurants at the hotel -- that specialize in tableside food preparation that will give your eyes a treat before you eat. The hotel also includes a shuttle to the various Disney theme parks. 960 1280

Hotel Andra (Seattle)

Hotel Andra (Seattle)

On a tree-lined avenue right around the corner from the Space Needle, you’ll find the Hotel Andra. This boutique hotel is designed with Scandinavian themes and it has a contemporary look. Try dining on-site at Lola, a farm-to-table restaurant. The hotel is perfectly situated close to Pike Place Market, one of the oldest public farmers markets in the US. You’ll also want to visit Chihuly Garden and Glass and the Museum of Flight -- two of Seattle’s most popular attractions. So grab your latte and explore. 960 1280

Maui Four Seasons (Maui, Hawaii)

Maui Four Seasons (Maui, Hawaii)

If you’ve been looking for paradise, you needn’t look any further. I can tell you it’s in Hawaii. The Maui Four Seasons is second to none. It not only offers phenomenal accommodations, but also several pools, a relaxing spa and an art collection with more than 280 original pieces of art. This hotel is redefining the meaning of the word “service;” staff and management take care of everything – literally. Everything here is pure luxury with an “at your service approach” awaiting you at every turn. 960 1280

Triple Creek Ranch (Darby, Montana)

Triple Creek Ranch (Darby, Montana)

If you make your way to Darby, MT, head to the Triple Creek Ranch. You’ll find the main lodge and its deluxe cabins surrounded by the pines of Trapper Peak and incredible views of the mountainous surroundings. Catch a glimpse of wildlife, including bald eagles, and try your hand at the local sport, fly-fishing. With on-site gourmet dining, finish the day with a glass of wine from their stellar wine cellar that consistently wins Wine Spectator awards. 960 1280

The Raphael (Kansas City, Missouri)

The Raphael (Kansas City, Missouri)

If you’re traveling to the heartland, make it a point to stay at the Raphael Hotel, a historic property with service where attention to detail is paramount. Here, the staff truly takes pride in having you as their guest, including a complimentary valet and a welcome treat of truffles. With the jazz bar jumping with live music several nights a week, this hotel is filled with modern elegance while still holding onto its southern heritage -- right down to the fried green tomatoes on their menu. 960 1280

Fontainebleau Miami Beach (Miami)

Fontainebleau Miami Beach (Miami)

Whatever your vacation style may be -- whether it’s indulging in a spa treatment, digging your toes into white sandy beaches or fine dining -- the Fontainebleau Miami Beach has you covered. Located near “Millionaire’s Row,” this oceanfront property was featured in numerous books, songs and movies, including the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger. With valet parking, fine accommodations and deluxe dining options, you’ll feel part of the elite crowd the moment you arrive. And no stay is complete without relaxing poolside at one of their cabanas. 960 1280

Le Pavillon Hotel (New Orleans)

Le Pavillon Hotel (New Orleans)

If you’re headed to “The Big Easy,” try the historic Le Pavillon Hotel, located just outside the French Quarter, just 5 short blocks to the music clubs on Bourbon Street and famous restaurants and antique shops on Royal Street. Enjoy the hotel’s rooftop pool for amazing views of the city. But don’t fall asleep too early. When the clock strikes 10, head to the lobby for complimentary PB & Js -- a hotel tradition that started on Sept. 10, 1988. 960 1280

Mandarin Oriental San Francisco (San Francisco)

Mandarin Oriental San Francisco (San Francisco)

At Mandarin Oriental San Francisco, I recommend booking the “bridge room” so that each day starts with exceptional views of the City by the Bay and nearby Bay Bridge. With an impeccably well-trained staff, don’t be surprised if the doorman remembers your name -- they’re known for that. This hotel is within walking distance to the TransAmerica Pyramid, Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square and Chinatown. 960 1280

Beaufort Inn (Beaufort, South Carolina)

Beaufort Inn (Beaufort, South Carolina)

What happens when you combine hotel service and charm? You get true southern hospitality, and the Beaufort Inn embodies that inside and out. This historic Victorian mansion has hardwood floors, fireplaces and cast iron claw-foot tubs, along with modern technologies and distinct amenities. While in town, take a carriage ride, attend a shrimp festival, charter a boat or just sit out on the verandah and relax. 960 1280
