Heidelberg Suites, Germany

Castle ruins and medieval squares have lured poets and composers to this Upper Rhine Valley city for centuries. Now it’s a magnet for design-conscious travelers, thanks to Heidelberg Suites. Florentine architect Michele Bönan, who wowed us with J.K. Place Capri two years ago, helped turn this former residence into 25 guest rooms and a lounge area replete with vintage books and art magazines. Though few hotels can claim front-and-center views of Heidelberg’s Old Town, we found ourselves admiring the interiors, a study of Neoclassical-inspired décor (weathered mirrors and Roman busts) with cool gray walls and handsome wine-colored settees. Doubles from $340.
