It’s a sad fact, but the hotels that I am least likely to stay in are my favorite ones. When planning trips, I tend to focus on promising new properties and current recommendations that have generated controversy. Alas, I can seldom justify return visits to classic hotels in which I have complete confidence. But, of course, it is very often the famous and highly rated places that Andrew Harper members are eager to experience. I decided, therefore, to outline some of the European journeys I would be most keen to repeat given the time and opportunity. Each of the suggested itineraries below includes longtime favorite hotels in some of Europe’s most magical destinations.
