10 Stunning Hotels to Check Into This Fall
Compared to the frenzy of summer vacation, fall might feel like a poor time to take a trek abroad, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t book the trip of your dreams. Autumn is the perfect time to see some North American foliage, escape the crowds in Europe, and explore Asia at the end of monsoon season.
We’ve scouted out some of the most impressive stays from acclaimed lodging company Marriott International to make sure you have a place to cozy up this fall. These 10 hotels are worth using your paid time off to escape to for a week or weekend.
Renaissance Lucerne Hotel, Switzerland
The Renaissance Lucerne Hotel is a century-old palace in the heart of the city. This sophisticated Swiss sojourn offers high-end amenities beneath its historical facade. Romantic décor in autumnal tones finds its way into every stunning suite — promising guests a cozy refuge after enjoying the amber and gold leaves by Lake Lucerne and the iconic Chapel Bridge.
The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo, Japan
The sakuras (cherry blossoms) sure are beautiful in Japan in the spring, but there’s nothing quite like the red Japanese maples ablaze in autumn. The Prince Sakura Tower in Tokyo is perfect year-round, with rooms offering views of the famous red observation tower downtown. This high-rise hotel also includes fine Japanese dining, a sauna, whirlpool, and spa for a truly immersive Japanese experience.
Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel, Croatia
With its well-preserved, red-roofed buildings and massive stone city walls by the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovik, Croatia is swarming with tourists in the spring and summer, but falls mostly forgotten by late fall. Take advantage of fewer crowds and stay at Sheraton’s Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel, which is only a few minutes away from this architectural splendor. The hotel itself was designed with the breezy seaside in mind with casual, contemporary furnishings and features lush gardens and views of the Srebreno Bay.
Moxy Bandung, Indonesia
An extraordinary trip to Southeast Asia deserves exciting accommodations to match, so don’t settle for booking a traditional guest room. Located in West Java, Indonesia, the Moxy Bandung boutique hotel is decorated with funky wall art, neon lighting, and comfy seating. But the hotel goes beyond classic amenities and also features an amazing outdoor patio with views of the mountains, a noodle corner, a game room with a pool table, a library, a lobby bar and lounge, and even a designated Instagram corner.
The Artisan D.C. Hotel, Colombia
Bogotá is filled with colorful cuisine and vibrant energy in the fall (which is technically the country's spring), which is why The Artisan D.C. Hotel pulled inspiration from local Colombian artists and culture to create this hotel treasure. This Autograph Collection hotel is near some of the city’s finest restaurants, but you won’t have to go far to indulge on handcrafted cocktails in the cozy, welcoming lounge. Your South American journey should have all the unique stops and that’s why staying in Bogotá is a must.
Renaissance Paris Hippodrome de St. Cloud Hotel, France
Feel like a French getaway, but don’t want to spend a pretty penny on accommodations in the heart of Paris? You’re not alone. Autumn is an exquisite time to explore the French countryside and the Renaissance Paris Hippodrome de St. Cloud Hotel isn’t short on elegance. Only a short drive from the attractions and historical landmarks in downtown Paris, this boutique Renaissance hotel by Marriott features authentic northern French Tudor-esque architecture, historical artifacts in every room, a museum, the Panacotta Café with terrace seating, a picturesque garden, a French wine shop, chocolatier and much, much more. C’est la vie after all.
Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel, Canada
The riveting red and orange maples of New England are on everyone’s bucket list, but have you considered visiting a Canadian maritime province instead? Halifax, Nova Scotia is often forgotten, but a cozy retreat to the Atlantic coast is the best place to snuggle up by the fire in autumn. The Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel situated right on the waterfront features a coffeehouse, amazing seafood dining, an outdoor patio, a spa, and a toasty ambiance you won’t be able to get enough of.
RYSE Hotel, South Korea
Rise to the occasion to stay at RYSE, an Autograph Collection hotel that captures the soul of Seoul, South Korea around every corner. Designed to be a “hotel for creative originals,” RYSE boasts a coffee bar, print culture lounge with magazines, records, and books, an athletic apparel store, club with rooftop cocktails and hip-hop music, fitness center, and much more. This chic hotel embodies the trendy personality of this Asian country and is the perfect escape for the fall.
AC Hotel by Marriott Bella Sky Copenhagen, Denmark
The exterior of this modern high-rise hotel in Copenhagen is an Instagram shot in itself, and no trip to Scandinavia would be complete without experiencing the cutting-edge modern amenities commonly found in this region of the world. Take refuge from the cooler temperatures in Copenhagen this time of year and experience the “hygge” lifestyle. Fine dining, a four-star spa, rooftop patio, and minimalist Danish design touches make the AC Hotel Bella Sky worth the brisk weather.
Le Méridien Ile Maurice, Mauritius
Why not really get away and head to this remote island off the coast of Madagascar? Mauritius is beautiful in the fall when the weather is cool, dry, and sunny. With mountains, rainforests, exotic wildlife, waterfalls, and numerous hiking trails, the island is a hotspot for adventurous souls. Visit this resort-style hotel and take advantage of its beachfront location, adults-only infinity pool, dining on the water, and views of the Indian Ocean. The Le Méridien Ile Maurice is the perfect place to escape it all this fall.
