Who knew a motel could look so fabulous?

The Waldorf Astoria. No wait, the Plaza (thank you, Eloise!). :)

Models are allergic to the sheets at motels, I would guess :)

I love hotels. Exploring them is one of my favourite parts of my holidays.

Monica said...

So fun. Normally I just think of motels as very dank places, but the editorials shot here make them look so chic.

Sher said...

I haven't stayed in a lot of motels. But I have to agree that The Wynn is beautiful. That guy just keeps selling his hotels and building new ones down the street. Genius business man.

Anika said...

Love the sensual vibe portrayed in all of these...perfect.

Hope you had a fab weekend bella...have a great week too :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I love how these models can make a shabby cheap motel look absolutely fabulous! :)
My favorite hotel...I can't remember the name of it but I stayed in this adorable little bed and breakfast near Niagra Falls when I was 18. It was so charming and lovely and pleasant. I wish I could go back right now.

Nicole Linette said...

I love the photo of the model standing on the dimly lit bed. My parents generally don't like dropping too much on a hotel, but they do enjoy comfort.. so I hope one day when I travel I can spend time in a few of the luxurious ones :) In Disney World, though, I absolutely love the Riverside French Quarter hotel haha.

I hope you had a marvelous weekend CC!
peace&love,
nicole.

Susan said...

Frock Around the Clock said...

Amazing selection of pictures! Hope you had a lovely weekend :) x

Gabbi said...

Lovely travel inspiration dear CC! My hotel knowledge is limited but I am quite a fan of the Standard Hotel here in the downtown area and the Biltmore. Standard because of it's lovely bar and the Biltmore because of it's strange history... last place the Black Dahlia was ever seen. Also, that's where my prom was (ages and ages ago)! :D

tiltumaria said...

Fabulous post, love every single pic! I love staying in hotels... The beds, the bath tubs, the breakfast... etc. Loove it! Haven't been to any really fancy ones though, the Scandic in Copenhagen was pretty nice!

Allison said...

These are all absolutely gorgeous! They're all absolutely stunning :)
I have such fond memories of spending nights in the Plaza hotel in the city (I felt like Eloise and would run up and down the halls). They also opened a new 'W' hotel in Hoboken, NJ with beautiful views of the city that I stayed in recently and it was fabulous!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend, darling!

Jaime said...

Love that last one of the 3 models under the covers! My fave hotel is in Italy- Le Sirenuse in Positano. It's amazing and even has it's own signature scent! :)

I love how old motels have so much character. They're never as generic as new chain hotels.
