Hotel Terraces With Unbelievable Views

One of our favorite vacation activities involves sitting, gorgeous views, and a snack or two. Here are 17 hotel porches—all from properties on our 2012 Gold List—perfect for just that…

Le Meurice (Pictured)

Paris, France

Our readers say: Staying at this seven-story 1835 landmark is “like sliding into a comfortable smoking jacket—a perfect fit.” On the rue de Rivoli between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, it’s in “the best location in all of Paris, especially for museum lovers.” Rooms in a palette of light colors and bright accents have period-style furnishings as well as views of the Tuileries Gardens, the Musée d’Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower. The wraparound terrace of the Belle Étoile Suite has 360-degree views of Paris. At Restaurant Le Meurice, food like roasted lamb from Lozère “lives up to the expectations of a Paris experience.”
