When a hotel is amazing, it’s not just for its stellar customer service, great interior design, or freshly pressed high-thread-count cotton bedding. It’s the little things—the very special, sometimes subtle details—that make a property stand out from one another. So to celebrate our favorite perks, we’ve rounded up 10 hotels around the world that offer their guests the best amenities.

The Redbury South Beach
The record players that come in every room at this Miami hotspot are the perfect way to set any mood. And for music nerds, they come with a great selection of vinyl to boot.

SLS Las Vegas
Members of The CODE at this sprawling Vegas property can take advantage of seemingly endless amenities: free nightlife entry, complimentary room upgrades, the option to skip the line on industry night at venues like LiFE, Foxtail, and The Sayers Club to elite and legend members, and much much more.


Four Seasons Costa Rica
There are few things better than a cold beer paired with chips and a lot of guac. The only thing better? When they appear in your room for free in the middle of the afternoon.

The Redbury Hollywood
When you book a night during the month of February, you’ll get plenty of romance: a Redbury signature candle, a bottle of sparkling wine, complimentary valet parking, and a lot of love.


Martha Washington Hotel
At this NoMad NYC gem, you’ll get two complimentary classic cocktail this winter from the famed Veronica’s bar, just for checking in.

The Raleigh Hotel
With the “Grand Dame” special at the iconic Raleigh Hotel during the month of February, it’ll be Valentine’s Day all month, with offerings including in-room breakfast with champagne toast, use of a retro Polaroid camera, a lux suite, and much more.

The Savoy, London
Sometimes it takes an entire trip to get around to unpacking. That’s why this five-star hotel is the best, because in the time it takes for you to check in and get to your room, they’ve already unpacked your luggage and pressed any wrinkled clothes.


H10 Duque de Loule, Lisbon
Complimentary mouthwatering brownies and champagne are what’s served up in the lobby every night at this designer hotel in Lisbon. And if you tire of that (which, why would you?) there’s also nuts, popcorn, and other savory snacks at the lobby bar.


25Hours hotel Berlin
Sure you can get on the very efficient metro while visiting the German capital, but why would you, when you’re offered a free Mini Coup for the day? And if you’re more of the cycling type, also available to ride are high-end bikes by German brand Schindelhauer.


The Miami Beach EDITION
If midnight bowling or late night ice skating are your thing, look no further than the decadent basement at the EDITION Hotel in Miami, which offers both. There’s essentially no way to ever get bored at this action-packed property.
