The Best Hotels in the World

Totally subjective based  exclusively on my own personal experience

  • The old Plaza Hotel ( New York)
  • The George V (Paris, before it became a Four Seasons Hotel)
  • The New Otani (Tokyo)
  • The Villa D'este (Lake Como)
  • Due Torri (Verona)
  • Gritti Palace (Venice)
  • Claridge's (London)
  • The Hilton (Hong Kong)
  • The Beverly Wilshire (Beverly Hills)
  • The Four Seasons Costa Rica

Three of the best are in Italy. The Italians do a few things right- hotel keeping, cooking, making and wearing clothes and manufacturing fine cars. If, "living well is the best revenge", living in Italy is the supreme vendetta.
