• Issue 10: Sydney

      Petite and perfectly appointed, this charming 31-room boutique hotel is proof that when it comes to luxury lodgings, good things often come in small packages. The sleek, generously proportioned guestrooms and baths–stocked with perks like Bose stereos, preloaded iPads and Bulgari toiletries–lure a sophisticated clientele. And downstairs, the 151-ft marble Establishment bar is the longest–and one of the most perennially packed–in the city. Lucky you: hotel guests get to jump the queue.
