For the bookworms who've always dreamed of spending a night in the University of Cambridge, look no further. The University Arms Hotel is the next best thing to staying at the famed English institution. Even the architect who oversaw the 1834 building's four-year renovation has done previous work at the university as well as a little place called Buckingham Palace. Along with designer Martin Brudnizki, the pair created a playful ode to the academy with a signature blue palette adorned with pictures of local landmarks and portraits of famous academics. Of the 192 rooms, 9 suites are titled after alumni like Stephen Hawking and feature a selection of books worthy of their namesake and a cozy sitting area to read them. Once you've exhausted your in-room collection, guests can continue their lessons at the library or trade in their literary hangover for an actual one at Parker's Tavern.
