We all want a room with a view, but if you want a room with THE view, it's to the mountains you must head.
Your mountain hotel of choice doesn't need to be on the tallest or the steepest slope to offer awesome sunrises and unbeatable stargazing, and scaling such heights needn't be difficult. Some of these mountaintop hotels can be reached by car, others by cable car. Some require a hike or even a helicopter ride. However you get there, your vacation is about to reach peak excitement.
