Our favourite classic hotels feature traditional architecture, refined design, or an old-fashioned approach to service. Just like cars, the modern version may be smoother and shinier, but you’ll remember your trip in a classic. Our judges have curated a list of classic boutique hotels that will probably give you an unshakeable taste for the high life (...how unfortunate). We’ve searched for world-class service, beautiful style, and irresistible locations for this category. Sensational cooking and signature suites come as standard. You can expect real peace and comfort in our edit of classic luxury hotels. And quite a few surprises, too.
