This review is from: Taschen's Favourite Hotels: 1 (Paperback)
Bought this book and was delighted with it. It's one of those books you can look through either together with your partner or by yourself and you find yourself passing a hour or two quite easily. The book is full of Hotels from all over the world and very few of them are those from the terrible 'chains' of hotels. Don't get me wrong, as an experienced traveller I've sayed at some of the best corporate 6star and 5 star hotels in the world and in some of their suite's and they are luxurious BUT they are still the standard towels, free shampoo's and all the other mass marketed crap you come to expect from Global chains. Like I said the champagne suite in the Arrabella Grand Westin in Frankfurt is delightful but the hotels in this book are something else. Most of them are unique and the settings they are in and the views are spectacular. That's not to say they are all expensive either. There is a beautiful rustic place in China that's around $80 a night for a chalet and it's wonderful. Naturally there are some in Switzerland set atop mountain with incredible views that are $800 a night. There's everything here but each and every one cries out to be visited. Hurry up Mr Lottery. When I win I intend to visit most of these !
