The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York, USA

Tata Presidential Suite Bright lights, big city.

You can even enjoy the city skyline from your deep soaking tub. The sophisticated suite is filled with gold and silver design details, […]

Hotel Cala di Volpe, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Sardinia, Italy

Penthouse Suite This remarkably gorgeous hotel — positioned on the equally gorgeous Costa Smeralda — wouldn’t look out of place in a traditional fishing village with its rustic stone structures, domed archways and timber features. We love the charming Sardinian touches, such as the hand-painted furnishings and playful multicolored pastel staircase. The 2,690-sq-ft suite has three bedrooms, two living rooms […]

Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, Japan

Presidential Suite Mandarin Oriental stands out from other hotels in Tokyo, straying from the country’s minimalist style and opting for a more opulent aesthetic. Japanese design influences shine through in the details such as the bedroom’s wooden slatting and paper lanterns. The one-bedroom 2,691-sq-ft suite comes with eight-person dining area and light-filled living room with specially commissioned fabrics and artworks. […]

Le Bristol, Paris, France

Royal Suite When it was created in 1925, Le Bristol was designed to be Paris’s grandest hotel. Today, it encompasses the original wing with a very traditional feel, newer wing and a beautiful landscaped courtyard. The Imperial Suite, located in the original hotel, epitomizes the splendor of Le Bristol. With Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture, crystal chandeliers, fabrics by […]

ITC Gardenia, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Bengaluru, India

Peacock Suite There aren’t many suites more representative of India’s connection to the natural world than the Peacock Suite at ITC Gardenia. UK-based designer Francesca Basu brought the modern interiors of this two-story 5,040-sq-ft suite alive through the subtle integration of peacock feathers and shades of blue and green into each white and bright high-ceilinged room. Not so subtle, but […]

Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel, France

Villa Rose Pierre It’s likely you know this five-star palace hotel as a Côte d’Azur favorite of iconic authors and movie stars. Situated on the coast between Nice and Monaco, the hotel is positioned on the rocks leading down to the sea, with Villa Rose-Pierre tucked away in its own expanse of oceanfront gardens. The villa itself covers 5,920 sq […]

Hôtel Martinez, France

Penthouse Suite Hôtel Martinez is one of Cannes’ most exclusive places to stay, and the Art Deco hotel has seen its fair share of celebrities since it opened in the 1920s, but it’s the Cannes Film Festival that drives the Hollywood crowd year after year. The Penthouse Suite is a coveted spot thanks to rooftop views of the Bay of […]

Meadowood Napa Valley, CA, USA

Estate Two-Bedroom Suite Not only is the Estate Suite often included in Elite Traveler’s Top 100 Suites, but The Restaurant at Meadowood is also a regular in the top ten of our reader-voted Top 100 Restaurants. It’s one of the few entries to be included in both, and it’s easy to see why. The cottage-style two-bedroom suite is elegant and […]

The Lobanov Presidential Suite, named for Prince Lobanov-Rostovsky who built the palace in 1818, sits above the hotel’s lion-guarded entrance and […]
