As a travel blogger, I am often asked about my favorite hotels. Tough question since it is challenging to compare city hotels with resorts and/or beach hotels. However, some hotels I have visited over the past five years have made an overwhelming impression. So I decided to put together this ranking. Since my travels to Latin America and Asia date back over five years, I leave these regions out. Please note that the order of the hotels does not mean a ranking. That would be way too difficult! So here we go!
