From the resort in the Seychelles where Paul McCartney and his new bride Heather spent their honeymoon to San Francisco's cine star The Fairmont, some hotels offer surroundings so special you’ll be tempted never to leave your hotel room

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Canada

The wow factor at Chateau Lake Louise is the stunning view across the icy-blue shimmering lake which mirrors the forested slopes and dazzling snow capped peaks of the Rockies. The words “awe-inspiring” don’t even begin to describe the impact. Totally in keeping with its surroundings, the venerable old Chateau Lake Louise rises in stately splendour at the northern end of the lake.

Its pièces deresistance, the four Belvedere Suites, are equally stunning – serene, vast and airy with elegant salons, king-size beds and even a private balcony over the lake. Everything you need is on tap – just don’t forget your camera!

Fairmont San Francisco, USA

With its 591 individually decorated guest rooms, the grande dame of San Francisco’s hotels is perched on Nob Hill, the only spot where each of the city’s famous cable-car lines meet.

At the top of the pile, the extraordinary Penthouse – with its three large bedrooms, living room, formal dining room, library, billiard room, kitchen and wondrous views – can count Elton John and Robin Williams among former guests. It has even starred in its own movie – 1996’s The Rock, with Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage. And if you like partying, you might just like to know that the suite – in whose boardroom the UN was formed – can entertain up to 100 people!
