LX Boutique Hotel, Lisbon
Once a watering hole for Lisbon’s literati until it fell into disrepair, the newly restored LX Boutique Hotel (12 Rua do Alecrim; 351/213-474-394; lxboutiquehotel.com; doubles from $117) has been reborn as a sophisticated inn dedicated to Portuguese culture. Every level has a different theme, from the fifth-floor Barrio district, where rooms have graffitied walls, to the second-floor Fernando Pessoa, named for the 20th-century poet who penned some of his work at the property.
