Experience incredible hotels and accommodations around the world that have hosted some of the biggest names in show business, from Elton John and The Rolling Stones to Beyoncé and Britney Spears.


The Ahwahnee, Yosemite Mariposa, California


Designed and built in the 1920s, The Ahwahnee hotel has hosted presidents and royalty as well as other famous personalities within its walls. Guests can book a stay in the Tresidder Suite, which is where Queen Elizabeth II stayed during her March 1983 visit to Yosemite National Park. The entire hotel was reserved for her private use. At the east end of Yosemite Valley, the hotel is surrounded by many of Yosemite’s most famous icons – a casual stroll of the hotel grounds reveals views of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls and Glacier Point. Within The Ahwahnee hotel’s walls, the Grand Lounge provides a welcoming place to relax in the evening with a book whilst crackling fires provide warmth and light from the lounge’s enormous fireplaces. The Dining Room’s 34-foot-high beamed ceilings soar above floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the beauty of the surroundings. www.yosemite.com


The Edgewater, Seattle, Washington


Originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair, The Edgewater has hosted some of the most famous names in music, such as Led Zeppelin, Neil Young and Kurt Cobain. Most famously, The Beatles were caught fishing from the window of the suite into the Puget Sound, a now iconic photograph that can be found hanging on the walls of the hotel. Rich with musical past and surrounded by breath-taking views of the Olympic Mountains, Elliot Bay and the city skyline, and boasting beautiful water views, the hotel’s suites are named after its iconic residents. Guests can even loan complimentary rental guitars, sheet music and record players to fully experience life on The Edge. visitseattle.org/


The Andaz, West Hollywood, California


Being the first hotel to open on the iconic Sunset Strip, Andaz West Hollywood (formerly Hyatt House), has played host to countless rock legends. In the 60s and 70s, the hotel was often referred to as “The Riot House” with touring rock groups like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who and The Doors all staying there regularly and throwing wild parties. In 1972, Keith Richards raised eyebrows, and the hotel’s profile, after dropping a TV out of the window of room 1015. Now, the property promises to give guests the ultimate celebrity experience, offering breath-taking views of the Sunset Strip and Hollywood Hills coupled with all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Not forgetting its iconic history, the hotel features floor-to-ceiling art displays commemorating the legendary artists that once walked its halls. The onsite restaurant and bar, aptly named Riot House, also pays tribute to that history with its eclectic Southern Californian menu and craft cocktails. www.visitwesthollywood.com


The Little Nell, Aspen, Colorado

Nestled in the infamous Three Valleys ski area, the resort boasts some of the best terrain in the world. Celebrities love its low-key vibe away from the glitz of Courchevel, whilst enjoying its picturesque setting and plethora of high end accommodations and facilities on offer.
