The best Hotel you ever stayed in is:

I think this may be mine:

Chateau Frontenac in Queec City, Quebec:

I really can't remember. I've stayed in so many different places.

To be completely honest, I remember the weird and the bad ones more than the good ones.

Off the top of my head, Doubletree Hotels are always reliable and good. And if you ever go to Hawaii, the Renaissance Ilikai in Waikiki is very nice.

The best I can remember is Atlantis. Royal Towers have very nice accomodations, even the lower priced Beach Towers are above par. If you are underage you can find good bartenders there too. Always something to do.



That burj al arab hotel looks amazing and unique. I'd love to visit there.

Embassy Suites ... every night @ 5pm is "managers reception" with open bar. I always check there first when travelling.

I'm a sucker for free booze.

I also love the W hotels

I've stayed at all three in New York. All were really nice.

The Soho Metropolitan in Toronto is also nice, as well as the Four Seasons.

I also stayed at the Hotel du Louvre in Paris, and the Ritz.

There is always the Plaza of course, and the Drake in S.F.

Mine would be a toss up between Hotel Nikko De Paris

or Hotel Riu Ferrara in Malaga Spain.

Both are very nice hotels...

Oh and if you get toward Fiji, can't go wrong with Namale or Vatulele. Vatulele was older and starting to show it's age, but had the better beach and the alcohol flowed more freely .... again with the free booze.

Those were probably the best hotels I've stayed at, not because of the accomodations ... which weren't bad ... but because they treated you so good. Never been treated so well since anywhere I've gone. Pretty sure it's a Fijan thing.

the Burj Al Arab was shown on the Travel Channel. Its like the worlds most expensive or best hotel. its a 7 star they say, which is off the charts.

it looks awesome, i think plasmas are standard in the rooms. also, they pick you up from the airport in Bentleys and take you over a bridge to get their i heard. you have to pay like 20 bucks i heard just to get in the hotel (if your'e not a guest).

I can't even begin to compare places I've stayed to "Burj Al Arab" (which I've heard is the only 7-star hotel in the world).

I liked these 2 hotels because of the views, though I have no idea how many "stars" they would be rated.
-Westin Peachtree Plaza (Atlanta)

-Sheraton on the Falls (Niagara Falls, ON)

When you tell someone you're going to get some money from the bank's automatic dispenser do you say you're going to the ATM machine or the AT machine? When you get there do you enter your PIN number or your PI number (not 3.1415927...)?
