Lavish Lobbies

Fairmont Olympic, Seattle
There is something to be said about stepping foot into a luxurious hotel lobby.  The first glimpse showcases the personality of the entire hotel.  All over the United States, lavish lobbies welcome hotel guests with a promise of beauty, service and sometimes grandeur.  Take a trip across the US and discover some of this country's truly fabulous and fancy hotel lobbies.  

The Nines, Portland
Starting in the hip city of Seattle, the Fairmont Olympic, Seattle exudes character and class.  This grand hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and displays a impressively high ceilings, large arched windows and just off the lobby guests can find the trendy oyster bar, Shuckers.  This architecture from years past contains details that are difficult to find in today's new construction and is appreciated by all that enter.   Not too far from Seattle you will find another amazing hotel, The Nines, Portland.  It has a lobby that can only be described as swank.  Although The Nines is located in a landmark building, the interior is sleek and modern and the lofty feel welcomes guests to experience minimalistic charm.  Two beautiful west coast hotels that welcome you will very different styles, but style none the less.

Charleston Place Hotel
Next we head to a southern city where tradition remains strong.  Charleston is historic, stunning and captivating and  here you will find the gorgeous Charleston Place Hotel.  Entering this hotel will make you feel regal with the double winding staircases and massive crystal chandelier.   It captures early American design and classic decor that are spectacular.  Our other southern hotel lobby is a bit farther south than Charleston, but it is still completely amazing.  Miami is loved for it's eclectic mix of old and new, here you will find the Art Deco and Asian inspired Setai Hotel.  The Setai has a lobby that exemplifies sleek and chic but with a warm and inviting feel.   These fabulous hotels hug the Atlantic coast and pamper the people that are lucky enough to spend a bit of time here.  

Waldorf Astoria, Orlando
Our last hotels are in different cities but are all a part of the Waldorf Astoria Collection.  The Roosevelt, New Orleans has been around forever but is now owned by Waldorf Astoria.  This famous hotel has had a long standing reputation of being a site for famous jazz and blues musicians as well as some A-list celebrities.  The Roosevelt welcomed the well-known and wealthy, and still today it is considered one of the defining hotels in New Orleans.  Next is the Waldorf Astoria, Orlando located  in Bonnet Creek.  Although many things in Orlando are meant to attract the attention of the young, the Waldorf Astoria has created a hotel that caters to the young and the old.  Just stepping into the lobby you will see the artistic clock that stands watch under the brilliantly decorated dome.  It is simply stunning both day and night.  Both hotels have created a lobby that not only welcomes guests, but leaves them breathless.  

The Setai, South Beach
There really is no place like home, but these hotels are remarkable enough to make you forget about home, at least for awhile.  WhatAHotel! promises to provide you with the Best Hotels no matter where you choose to stay.  So choose your dream vacation destination and get ready to enjoy.
