List Rules
High-end hotel chains with multiple locations

With nearly 100 luxury hotels, the Four Seasons has consistently earned top marks in the luxury hotel rankings by trusted travel groups like Zagat and have consistently been rated as the Travel + Leisure best hotels in the world. Around since 1960, Four Seasons locations around the world are known for their luxury services like spa treatments and fine dining, plus some of the best hotel rooms with scenic views that the world has to offer.

But there are many more fabulous luxury hotel chains that give the Four Seasons a good run for their money. The Mandarin Oriental, Ritz-Carlton, Hyatt, InterContinental, Fairmont and Crowne Plaza all have established themselves as top loved luxury hotel brands with hundreds of lavish properties and expensive amenities that welcome everyone from celebrities to business travelers to families who want to enjoy a vacation in a really nice hotel.

Quite simply, these are not your best budget hotels, they are the best hotels money can buy. They'll cost you a couple hundred (at least) per night, but escaping from normal life into the luxurious surroundings of these high end hotels is nothing short of a great way to spend time away from home.
