Our New Favorite Amenity: Cool Hotel Vehicles

custom seaplane at Beach House Maldives

Our favorite new amenity? Getting your own private escape-mobile. As far as airport transfers go, it doesn’t get much better than Beach House Maldives, a Waldorf Astoria Resort (doubles from $815), where guests are greeted by a DeHavilland Twin Otter seaplane tricked out with everything from iPads to Bose noise-canceling headphones.

Coming this summer to all stateside Fairmont Hotels (doubles from $169): BMW Cruise bikes (plus helmets and locks, of course).

When you check in to one of the five high-style suites at Paris’s Plaza Athénée (doubles from $1,067), they’ll hand you the keys to an Aston Martin. Take your pick between the sleek Rapide or the sporty, two-door Cygnet.

Book a suite at the Peninsula Hotel in New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, or Tokyo (doubles from $595), and you’ll get a personal chauffeur to drive you around town in a Mini Cooper S Clubman car finished in the brand’s signature hunter green.
