6 Glorious Hotel Fireplaces Perfect for Getting Your Cozy On
If cooler—err, straight up cold—weather makes you want to crawl up in a ball next to a fireplace with a glass of wine and a good book, you’re ready for a winter vacay at one of these seven hotels. Each of these posh properties has cozy sleeping quarters, opulent amenities and, most importantly, a fireplace so good, you might just forget to check in to your own room.
The Ivy Hotel (Baltimore, MD)
Located in Baltimore’s adorable, historical neighborhood of Mt. Vernon, The Ivy Hotel is an urban escape with 18 totally unique rooms and a showstopping fireplace in its Conservatory Room. In the evening, guests gather round for hearthside cocktails and Champagne. And if being toasty is your goal in life, the hotel’s lavish rooms feature their own gas-burning fireplaces.
Fairway One at The Lodge (Pebble Beach, CA)
Overlooking the pristine first fairway of Pebble Beach’s iconic golf links, Fairway One at The Lodge’s brand-new rooms feature some pretty snug fireplace seating areas, and are located just down the road from the idyllic seaside town of Monterey, where HBO’s Big Little Lies takes place. Best part, though? The in-room gas fireplaces can be set on a timer so you can doze off with a fire roaring.
St. Regis Deer Valley (Park City, UT)
Sure, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a fire at the St. Regis Deer Valley—at the lobby’s traditional stone-meets-wood cheminée, the minimalist-y modern fireplace at the bar and lounge, or even from inside your bathroom in the Presidential Suite—but the most enviable and Instagrammable moment at this ski-in, ski-out paradise is the “Fire Garden” outside. Overlooking the slopes, these famed fire pits are the perfect place to take in the views while you enjoy the signature scotch and s’mores, or watch in awe as a Champagne bottle is sabered in front of you at the daily ritual.
Mountain Shadows (Paradise Valley, AZ)
It’s all about the freestanding, Jetsons-looking fireplace inside The Living Room, the sunken lounge area at Hearth ’61—the on-site restaurant. The only thing that could make Mountain Shadows more glam is that before it was rebuilt, it was a popular haunt of Bob Hope and Lucille Ball in the 1950s. The I Love Lucy star can even be seen arriving by helicopter in one of the hotel’s many black-and-white prints from this era.
The Ludlow (New York, NY)
The Ludlow might just be the coziest place in the coziest city in the world. This huge hearth sits in the lobby lounge and its adjoining garden, so you can get a complete indoor/outdoor vibe as you sip a cocktail at this Lower East Side gem…and never actually have to go outside to face the cold. Upstairs, the luxe hotel offers a variety of rooms, from studios and lofts to a fancy AF penthouse and balcony terraces with some of the best views in Manhattan.
The Spa Suites at Rustic Inn (Jackson Hole, WY)
If Jackson Hole’s wilderness vibes don’t make you want to crawl up under a faux-fur blanket next to a blazing fire, Spa Suites at Rustic Inn and its many public and private fireplaces certainly will. Located right in the charming downtown, just minutes from the Grand Tetons, the hotel boasts chic lodge accommodations with a rustic twist and an impressive stone fireplace in the lobby that’s large enough to bring any group of weary skiers back to life. On the communal deck, an outdoor fireplace and mountain views are your backdrop when sitting in the hot tub, and some of the rooms feature private outdoor terrace fireplaces and—if you’re extra lucky—an even more intimate hot tub setting.
