For old-world opulence, the Langham is the place to be. Friday afternoons are reserved for tea, scones and petit fours – a fixture of the hotel since 1865. With the charm and ruffled curtains of a bouqtiue hotel, but the class and glamour of an international institution, the Langham will have you feeling like a royal with its plush suites, panelled walls (for real) and sumptuous, velvet furnishings – and that's before you set your sights on the Observatory Suite's ornate, gilded fireplace. The otherworldly Roman bathhouse style indoor pool is waiting for you downstairs, so be sure to stop in for a splash.
Prices range from $423 - $2,548 per night. Reserve online.
