LUSH LANDSCAPE Weâ€™ll pretty much guarantee you wonâ€™t mind that your room at Ladera, in Saint Lucia, is missing a wall. All 37 suites and villas are completely open (yet still oriented for privacy) to screensaver views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea and verdant Pitons. From $1,800 per night.
WINTER WONDERLAND Rooms at Crystal Peak Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado, face one of two equally scenic directions: toward the slopes or the Rocky Mountains. Nestled at the base of Breckenridge Ski Resortâ€™s Peak 7, the lodge also offers convenient ski-in/ski-out access. From $349 per night.
WORLD LANDMARK Set just 650 yards from the Taj Mahal, Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra, India, boasts an unrivaled location. The best part: Every room is positioned to have an uninterrupted view of the ancient monument, meaning unlimited gawking at the ultimate shrine to love. From $905 per night.
ICONIC SKYLINE Each of the 100 rooms at the Z NYC Hotel in Long Island City showcases the Big Appleâ€™s postcard skyline via 9-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. A free shuttle into Manhattan makes this an affordable NYC option. (Yes, we just used affordable and NYC in the same sentence.) From $225 per night.
CENTRAL SPOT Glamorous, historic and within walking distance of many of the cityâ€™s landmarks, The Savoy is a London icon. Look out on the River Thames, Big Ben and the London Eye from many of the 195 guest rooms and 73 Edwardian and art-deco suites. Rooms from $550 per night; suites from $1,935 per night.
