Or, head to Andrés’ other Conrad venue, the indoor-outdoor San Laurel restaurant, for Iberian-inspired dishes like Mediterranean sea bass in a saffron-mussel sauce. Save time for The Beaudry Room, too, if you’re craving lighter fare and a mix of classic and reinvented drinks, such as an espresso martini and a spicy margarita with shiso.

At the base of Park City Mountain, a few miles removed from charming Park City, Utah’s shop- and restaurant-filled downtown (which you can reach via a complimentary shuttle), sits the Waldorf Astoria Park City, a chic oasis for luxury-seeking travelers in town to ski, shop or do a bit of both.

The 160 guest rooms and suites are cozy and elegant, offering a luxe alpine ski lodge vibe.

Should you find yourself feeling sore after a busy day on the slopes, take a dip in the heated outdoor pool or one of several hot tubs, or visit the property’s spa for a treatment. Available services range from the Active Recovery Massage (which is designed to help you recover faster from mountain activities) to the Lymphatic Detox Wrap (a seaweed wrap with a massage that targets inflammation to help your body reset).

Originally established in 1888 on an island connected to downtown San Diego via a narrow strip of sand, Hotel del Coronado is a favorite among locals and tourists — and for good reason.

Younger travelers can also participate in various age-appropriate activities at the Ocean Explorers kids club while their parents relax in a private pool cabana, on a beach daybed or at the spa, where treatments such as the Seaweed Leaf Wrap draw inspiration from the ocean’s healing properties.

Dining options are plentiful, too. The resort offers everything from seafood-centric Serea (a perfect spot for intimate dinners) to a casual market with artisanal pizzas to the Babcock & Story Bar, a timeless space serving classic cocktails at an old-school mahogany counter and on a patio with phenomenal beach vistas.

The panoramic vistas from Oceana Santa Monica‘s 70 suites are just one of many highlights of this beachy property just west of Los Angeles. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from its perch on Ocean Avenue, this all-suite haven sits in a residential part of Santa Monica just a short stroll away from the city’s main attractions and the beach, giving visitors a central yet serene home base for sightseeing, shopping and sunbathing.

The main fixture of the hotel’s design is its intimate courtyard, where a free-form pool surrounded by white-and-blue tiles and James Perse loungers create a retro vibe fitting of a place where aspiring actors might have once stayed while waiting for their big break.

The hotels of yesterday wouldn’t have come close to matching the stylish suites of Oceana Santa Monica, though. Inside the chic spaces, which are decorated in an eye-catching palette of deep blues and cloud whites, you’ll find art deco-style sofas, hand-tufted Nepalese rugs and minimalist canopy beds dressed in Loro Piana and Frette linens. The exquisitely tiled marble bathrooms continue the ocean-inspired theme, offering walk-in showers and Bottega Veneta bath products.

For those set on maintaining their fitness regimens during their stays, there’s a small fitness center equipped with Technogym and Peloton machines. Additionally, loaner beach cruisers are available for bike rides around the city, and the property’s staff can arrange outdoor activities like beach yoga, guided hikes and surf lessons. Should you wish to soothe sore muscles after your workout (or simply treat yourself to a few hours of pampering), you can book a massage or facial at the hotel’s single-room spa.

You’ll find numerous restaurants nearby, but if you’d rather dine on-site, you’re in luck, as the hotel has two eateries. Head to The Veranda for poolside bites, or visit Sandpiper for an elevated twist on California beach fare, such as linguine with clams, broiled prawns topped with caviar, and pan-seared salmon on fried rice. Round out the night with a cocktail (or two) at the rooftop Sunset Terrace.

Right on the Las Vegas Strip, the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is a rare find in the heart of Sin City. That’s because it offers a surprisingly peaceful setting that’s a stark contrast to the commotion of downtown.

Perhaps the quiet atmosphere is due to its lack of an on-site casino, or maybe it’s a result of the property’s focus on wellness. High above the action-packed Strip, the Waldorf Astoria Spa aims to help guests unwind with massages, facials, body treatments and more. An array of free fitness classes, including yoga and Pilates, are also available through the eighth-floor gym, and there’s a tranquil pool with chaise lounges and cabanas for relaxing in or out of the sun.

In 1913, Lynchburg, Virginia, was hopping. With improved road and transportation infrastructure, more people were visiting the city, which had become a popular place for hosiery and shoes. Virginians were asking for a luxury hotel, and The Virginian Lynchburg promised to fill that void. Before long, the property fulfilled its promise, becoming the go-to hotel for dozens of distinguished guests, including former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt and former President Ronald Reagan.

Today’s Virginian Lynchburg looks much like it did decades ago — but with updates to bring it into the 21st century. You’ll immediately notice original features like barrel-vaulted ceilings, curved skylights and grand marble stairs when you enter the showstopping lobby, though newer (but still period-appropriate) furnishings now occupy part of the historical space.

Likewise, the 115 rooms and suites beautifully blend the hotel’s original character with contemporary essentials. The 14-foot ceilings painted in cream serve as a neutral backdrop for the dark wood furnishings that have an art deco flair, as well as the 55-inch flat-screen TVs mounted across from the plush Kingsdown beds made exclusively for the hotel. Bathrooms have a more straightforward design, with white subway-tiled showers and luxurious Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.

You’ll have a few different eateries to choose from when you’re in need of some sustenance. William & Henry Steakhouse — the lower-level fine dining establishment — dishes up steakhouse classics either a la carte or as a three-course prix fixe menu, and Skyline — the rooftop restaurant — specializes in seafood, offering tasty options like shrimp and crawfish etouffee, a wasabi-crusted tuna burger and stuffed trout. A grab-and-go cafe is available, too, if you’d rather pick up a snack or coffee before exploring the surrounding mountains.

Rates at The Virginian Lynchburg, Curio Collection by Hilton start at $140 or 40,000 Hilton Honors points per night.
