The Top 100 Hotels in the World

How many have you stayed at?

Time magazine has a cool article breaking down the top 100 hotels in the world.

Back when I was a magazine editor, I often received invitations for press trips which involved visits to great historic places – from the Alamo in San Antonio to Flanders Fields in Belgium to the Tredegar Iron Works in Richmond. Soaking in all the history was a thrill, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the great food, fine drink, and fancy hotels just as much. (All of this on someone else’s dime!)

So after seeing Time’s list, I was curious if I had actually stayed at any of the best hotels in the world. Alas, I have not. (And I can’t say I was too surprised.)

Here are the top 10, according to Time’s rankings:
