W Hotels are trendy to the max and cater to a younger set. They often house their city's most happening clubs and bars. A whole litany of W-words and phrases can aptly be applied to these glamorous, distinctive digs—from wonderful and wish to unwind and whisk away. They even retail their linens and robes, cufflinks and living-room accessories—further evidence that W Hotels represent a lifestyle as much as a hotel. You'll find five W Hotels in New York , two in New Orleans and Chicago, and properties in Los Angeles, Montreal, San Francisco, and Honolulu.

But what happens when you're in a city without one of these name brands? Consider these other brands. Peninsula hotels are synonymous with sumptuous, rarified, and gracious living; they are opulent, Old-World charmers. This highly select group has outstanding concierge services and properties in New York, Chicago, and Beverly Hills. St. Regis hotels, also incredibly select, easily exceed high expectations. Their 1904 flagship Beaux Arts property, the St. Regis New York, is the stuff of legend; look for other fine hotels in Aspen and San Francisco. No less enthusiastic, look to the French-owned Sofitel to experience the art of vivre that welcomes guests warmly with sophisticated services, a classy demeanor, and contemporary elegant interiors. Sofitels are found in Montreal, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
