I have always enjoyed staying in hotels. I don’t know why exactly. Maybe it was because my dad was so bound and determined to drive straight through on our rare family trips, that actually getting to stop at a hotel seemed like a special treat.
I generally try to avoid cheap motels when I’m traveling, but I have yet to stay in a true five-star hotel.
The Forbes Travel guide has a list of four and five-star hotels. I will most likely keep an eye out for hotels I could stay at during a trip not planned specifically for this list item, but a couple of hotels that appeal to me are:
The Ranch at Rock Creek because Montana is a place I’d like to visit and this property is unique.
The Umstead Hotel & Spa because I have friends in the area.
