Movie Star Suites at Leading Hotels

May 20, 2013 By:Five Star Alliance

Nobody can make you a star, but you can check in to a hotel that will make you feel like you are one. Our sister publication, Luxury Travel Advisor, has the rundown on sleeping in star spots. Here's an excerpt:

Did you miss out on Cannes this year? We hear The Leading Hotels of the World is offering travelers a chance to live the celeb life at some movie-star themed suites around the world. Here are the top picks:

An ardent fan of the town of Portofino, actress Ava Gardner often chose to spend her holidays there. In 1952, she stayed at Hotel Splendido, during the filming of The Barefoot Contessa, co-starring Humphrey Bogart and Edmond O’Brien. In homage to Ms. Gardner, sister hotel Splendido Mare dedicated a suite to her. Stretching across the entire top floor of the hotel, the Ava Gardner Suite offers a magnificent terrace with incomparable views of the harbor, promontory and Castello Brown, which are also fully visible from the bed and the sitting room. The 603-square-foot terrace is adorned with a huge, potted lemon tree and flowering Mediterranean plants. The expansive bedroom is incredibly well lit thanks to two generous windows that highlight the soft pastel tones of the walls, fabrics and furniture. A large door connects to the sun-filled sitting room, which boasts an almost wall-to-wall window. When open, this joins the sitting room and terrace, creating one magnificent space— half indoors and half outdoors. No doubt Ms. Gardner would feel blissfully at home here!
