Lokal Hotel

Skipping the front desk at check-in used to be a VIP-level perk. At Philly's Lokal Hotel, it's the norm. Promising "invisible service" for all who stay in its six apartment-style suites, it uses automated codes instead of a traditional front desk, and in-room iPads to access amenities like food and grocery delivery. The rooms themselves have full kitchens, clawfoot tubs, and mid-century furnishings, which match well with the building's raw, industrial feel and the curated books and artwork.

  • Collective Retreats

    With locations that include Yellowstone, Vail, and Sonoma, Collective Retreats takes you where no hotel can go. The glamping concierge sets up luxury tents among some of the most incredible landscapes in North America. Accommodations include a bed with 1,500 thread-count sheets, en-suite bathroom, private deck, and decor featuring items unique to the location. The mornings start with a freshly brewed cup of coffee made from locally sourced beans and ends with a farm-to-table dinner, served under the stars by a professional chef and followed by gourmet smores around the fire. In between, a team of local experts will treat you to anything from fly fishing and paddleboarding to horseback riding and cattle drives.

  • The Walled Off Hotel

    Banksy is famous for his social commentary. His latest statement arrives not through a piece of street art, but instead an actual business. The Walled Off Hotel sits just feet away from the wall that separates it — and the rest of Bethlehem — from the West Bank of Palestine. It currently has ten rooms, customized with artworks by Banksy, Sami Musa, and Dominique Petrin, and ranging from the barracks-like "Budget" to an ornate "Presidential" suite. The hotel bar is decorated with security cameras and slingshots, and should you need reminding of the point of the whole thing every room offers "views" of the wall just steps from the front door.
