One of the wonderful things about living out of your suitcase as a Trip Leader for BACKROADS the world over, is the chance to return again and again, to the same hotel in certain regions where you are working. You become a quick study of the food and beverage, hospitality and management teams and you see day in and day out how your guests respond to every aspect of the property and how it affects their trip experience. . The hotels on this list (from all price levels) are some of my favorites.

Stalheimsvegen 131, 5715 Stalheim, Norway
Centrally located in the fjord region of Western Norway, the 124 room Stalheim Hotel has a tremendous view and a wonderful history. This isn't an intimate hotel experience, meaning that with that many rooms and this being the perfect central...

Vallon de l’Arcoule (D78F), 13520 Les Baux-de-Provence, France
