It would do a disservice to this two-bedroom micro-hotel, in London’s East End, to call it a b&b. This is a place where, on arrival, you’re greeted by the delightful Mr Carter – fêted interior designer and owner – and transported to a world of gold leaf, poufs and pom poms.
A small and elegant all-suite hotel set on its own pretty beach in the villa and golf resort of Punta Cana near the Dominican Republic’s eastern tip. Designed by Oscar de la Renta, fashion designer and Dominican, Tortuga Bay has classic, quite formal Caribbean style and is friendly and unfussy.
This gated community of contemporary town homes set around a central clubhouse designed by an acclaimed Brazilian architect incorporates Mediterranean overtones. Its modern style has huge self-catering appeal among a range of more identikit resorts nearby.
Location and a deep commitment to comfort and sustainability combine to make this extended-stay, all-suite hotel a convenient, eco-friendly choice, as well as excellent for those who prefer an element of self-catering.
A stylishly decorated boutique hotel in an 18th-century house opposite the Oxford Union buildings with smart, well-equipped rooms and friendly staff. The hotel is in a hard-to-beat location, within easy walking distance of Oxford’s colleges, museum, theatre and shops. A great retreat for a short break in the city.
A modern block of serviced apartments with well-equipped kitchens and courteous staff in a handy city-centre location, which are available for stays of one night or longer.

A cosy inn with its own smokehouse and microbrewery with 72 acres of private woodland, a short drive from Lake Windermere. The rooms have wood-burning stoves and beds with Egyptian cotton linen. The excellent restaurant offers delicious country-style cooking.
A lively hub where ‘collective’ and ‘collaborative’ are the mots du jour, Casa Bonay delivers cool, classy, creative vibes with a quirky Catalonian edge, and boasts a passion for showcasing local independent talent. It’s a great alternative choice for those adverse to the more hectic tourist-traps.
Between Union Square and downtown’s evolving Mid-Market district, this tech-forward boutique hotel has transformed a historic building. Common areas are geared for 21st-century work or play, as are guest rooms, all fully loaded with features. Lobby-level Turn Café is just steps from the cable car.
Formerly the Cooper Square Hotel, this 145-room property is set in a modern 21-storey tower that you enter via a former tenement-style building. There’s a secluded street-level garden, a bustling street-side café and, inside, Michelin-starred chef John Fraser’s widely acclaimed Narcissa restaurant.

On hotel-rich 57th Street, opposite the Park Hyatt, this new build 29-floor property brings boutique cool to Midtown. And while it lacks the swimming pools and palm trees of other Viceroys, the classy ground-floor bistro and rooftop lounge attract tastemakers and trendsetters.
I’m not sure if this is a spa with suites (and golf) or suites with a spa (and golf), but either way it’s a class act.

A grand Georgian pile with all the stately assets of parkland, vast rooms and acres of marble, plus a library, chapel and a fine-dining restaurant. Even the spa is disguised as a boathouse. It's rather close to industrial Teesside, but most come for celebrations, not sight-seeing.
