New York

The Beekman Hotel is not just a New York landmark. It is among the finest hotel accommodations in the city. Built in 1928, the Beekman's distinctive tower is an art deco icon located a few short steps from the United Nations. Spacious suites reflect traditional styling, and many offer terraces and inspiring river views. The Top of the Tower, located on the 26th floor, has been a centerpiece of Manhattan nightlife for decades. The sophisticated cocktail lounge offers panoramic views of the New York skyline, and an amazing setting to spark romance, or after hour business.  It's my stay of choice in New York for location, spaciousness and most of all, it's cocktail lounge at the top of the hotel "Top of the Tower." I think it's the best kept secret in the City.

Malibu, California   

Here's a great throwback to the 50's and the time of Motels instead of Hotels. This one is a real gem for under $200 with a private beach and complimentary breakfast. It has 21 rooms and was built in 1949. The rooms were renovated in 2005. This spot is all about location and price. Just be sure to book well in advance because there is usually a waiting list.

Sweden   

Utter Inn (in English, Otter Inn) is an art project by Mikael Genberg which offers an underwater accommodation for the public. The facility is entered through a typical Swedish red house located on the surface of the water.

The guests of Utter Inn arrive at the port of Vasteras and are taken out one kilometre on Lake Malaren with an inflatable boat. After receiving all the instructions guests need, they are then left alone. If guests prefer deluxe accommodation, someone can deliver dinner by boat in the evening. Guests can use an inflateable canoe to visit the closest uninhabited island. Guests can also swim, sunbathe or watch the fish (from both upstairs and downstairs) at the hotel. It's a remarkable feeling to go to bed while the fish surround and watch you carefully.

Paris   

Here's a great bohemian, charming, budget hotel in the heart of the Saint Germain quarter. The Hotel de Nesle (pronounced "Nell") has 20 rooms all painted with frescoes of different events and themes. They only take reservations by phone and may forget your conversation, but if you have a sense of humor, their memory returns. The price for a private bath is extra, so be sure and ask when you call. It's in a great location - within walking distance of the Louvre and there are loads of cafes nearby.
