When it comes to the tried and true, rarely do I stray far from the path. These 19 hotels I have my eye on for 2019 are examples of just that. Hotels that represent a strong sense of space, an elevation of service that extends beyond check-in, and delightful surprises along the way.

19 Hotels I Have My Eye On For 2019

The question was asked — “do you travel for design?” And the majority of you said yes. So as I examined and cross-examined my saved lists, inspirational magazines, and past visits, these are the hotels that caught more than my eye. They are the hotels that pull at your heart, the kind worth hopping on a plane for and planning an entire trip around.

Last year’s hotel list was catered to new hotels and found destinations across the world from Thailand to Switzerland. This year? A list of 19 hotels that represents not just new hotels but tried and true for a reason.

These are the 19 hotels I have my eye on for 2019.

19 Hotels I Have My Eye on For 2019


Highlighted Hotel: Camellas-Lloret
Where: Languedoc, France
What to Love: When it comes to redefining the hotel space, owners Colin and Annie have done exactly that. Transcending a space into an otherworldly sojourn in the south of France, Camellas-Lloret brings to life everything that one could hope for in a stay. A stay here is an intimate introduction to the region through handpicked furnishings and a sense for what draws the traveler in. Camellas-Lloret sets a new way of thinking about how a traveler books a “hotel” whether it be a villa in a boutique collection, a remote hotel, or a warm b&b in southern France.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
