Taking its cues from the English countryside, this 316-room hotel exudes stately elegance from the art-swathed salon, which serves traditional afternoon tea, to the wood-paneled Polo Club. Thankfully stately doesn't translate as stuffy and the guest rooms, most of which are suites, are as palatial as they are plush. Two noteworthy additions, the cocktail bar and spa, were part of the recent $22 million renovation.

Holiday Tea at the Windsor Court
The Windsor Castle–inspired hotel hosts afternoon tea throughout the year (naturally), but it's especially festive from Thanksgiving to King's Day when the hotel is decked out with wreaths, garlands, and ornaments. There are 10 trees throughout the hotel, but the one in the lobby (where tea is held) is the most impressive. It measures 19.5 feet and twinkles with some 25,000 white lights.
