Long-established magazine Condé Nast Traveler complied a list of the sixteen best hotels for design in 2010 around the world, selected by its readers. Among those, we'll share our top five favorites so you can get your summer planning (or daydreaming) into high gear.
1. 21C Museum Hotel, Louisville, Kentucky
Created in buildings that were once tobacco and bourbon holding facilities, this hotel is filled with fascinating contemporary art and fine modern decor.
2. Milestone Hotel, London
The guest quarters here are all done in different traditional schemes, and your personal color preference determines which room will be yours.
3. One&Only Palmilla, San José del Cabo
Situated on the Pacific coast of Mexico, this hotel offers comfortable, colorful, and highly unique design touches scattered about its massive and pristine property.
4. Tides Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen
Another perfect Mexican spot, these interiors were designed by Kelly Wearstler in a more restrained and beachy style than her norm.
5. Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur
This hotel in India features colonial furnishings interspersed with colorful artifacts from the native culture.
