The Top Hotels for Foodies

15. LIME WOOD, LYNDHURST, ENGLAND
The Top Hotels for Foodies
There may be no better hotel than one where you can practically roll out of bed and into a world-class restaurant. The 15 culinary-forward hotels in this year’s AFAR Travelers’ Choice Hotel Awards run the gamut from wine country resorts in Napa and Mendoza, to urban hotels in Paris and New York. Each offers onsite cuisine as memorable as the guest rooms. And room service is not only recommended, it’s a must.

    1. LE BRISTOL, PARIS, FRANCE
    1. LE BRISTOL, PARIS, FRANCE
    At the nexus of fashion, art, and politics on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Le Bristol so embodies French l’art du vivre that its pampered Burmese cat, Fa-Raon, sports a collar by Goyard and a sterling name tag by Christofle. One hardly needs to go out, as the hotel’s restaurants, winetastings, fashion shows, and weekend live DJs at The Bar at Le Bristol anchor French high society. But the real draw is Epicure, chef Eric Frechon’s three-Michelin-starred restaurant. Consistently voted one of the top restaurants in the city, Epicure is a seriously splurge-worthy spot that lives up to its starry rating. The plush, stately dining room overlooks the hotel’s flower-filled courtyard garden (an idyllic spot for a pre- or post-dinner drink). Expect superlative French cooking with a seasonal approach—nearly everything on the menu is sourced from France, including the famed Bresse chicken (here, poached in a pig’s bladder) and succulent Loire Valley duck—artful plating and, of course, impeccable service.
