I was thinking, we all travel. We all love the good 'ol road trip... Where/what is the sweetest room/cabin/Lodge you can remember?.....Doesn't have to be posh...or have the best view.... Just a place you may have stayed for a single night, maybe it was the fireplace... or perhaps you were snowed in...

Toss up- The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs or The Biltmore in Pheonix, both very unique architecture.

The Sagamore Hotel in Bolton's Landing, NY (overlooking Lake George, NY)...I attended a three day work conference at this famous and exquisite hotel. Great place to spend a few days of you get the chance. Me and a co-worker were given a three bedroom condo rather than a room in the main hotel. Mini bar, kitchen, fire place, directly on Lake George. All on the company. Rachel Ray actually worked at this resort hotel as a manger of one of the restaurants located in the Hotel before she made it big on the Food Network.

I rather enjoyed the cabin I stayed in at the base of Mt. Cook in New Zealand. Nothing fancy about the accommodations at all, but the view was fabulous.

Probably a hotel in Taorimina, Sicily. Old, but luxurious. But some of my best nights were in a tent, Yosemite or inside the Grand Canyon.

Quite honestly , I usually do the chains . My favorite that isn't one of the big names is the Sea Gate Inn located on St. Simons Island , Ga. . For roughly $150 , you get a room that is as big as most of the houses I've lived in .

The best overnight spots I've stayed in have all been outdoors under the stars in different parts of this country.
Some of the sound effects of the natural surroundings in the great outdoors are priceless. Hard to beat the sound of the water flowing over the rocks in a stream as you go to sleep at night. The early morning sights of fog in the mountains and birds waking up talking to all that will listen is hard to beat...........

For an ABB-related trip, The Georgian Terrace in Atlanta. That place is beautiful.

That would be my other choices, the places where I stayed on my honeymoon, Lizard Island in Australia, and the place in New Zealand, Blanket Bay Lodge, was phenomenal. Pretty much spent all my savings, but it was worth it!! The hotel on Lizard Island was out of site. Every night you told the staff what you wanted for lunch the next day, and they would pack a little boat with like a 15 horse power engine on it and you set off to your own private beach in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef with a first class lunch and a packed cooler of whatever beer/wine/bubbly or whatever else you requested. It was an unwritten rule that if you saw someone on a beach, you would not go there. It was one of the more remote places I have been and the natural beauty was spectacular. You always knew who was doing naked snorkeling during the day by the way they sat on their barstool at night!! Some people forgot to put suntan lotion on their rear ends!!!

Agree!!!

For 'best room' it would be the place friends and I stayed in Sorrento, Italy. We ended up with our own apartment - the only accomodations in this ancient building that was in the middle of a grove of olive, lemon, cherry trees and had been used for producing olive oil at one time. The bottom floor of building still contained olive presses but the upper floor had been converted to an apartment with a wrap-around outdoor terrace that was lovely ... it was covered with grape arbors and with the essence of the fruit and olive trees it was heaven ... sort of like being in a big treehouse (with views of the tops of the brightly colored cottages and buildings of Sorrento, the Mediterranean, and Vesuvious in the distance)

Used to be a place in downtown Augusta called The Telfair Inn. It was a bunch of Victorian homes turned into an Inn. Spent my wedding night there in 1986.

I had this lil room in a town near Montery, Calif. Spent the later half of 83', all the way till the first part of 87' there every night. Third tier of the cell block, right up in the corner They fed me and provided clothing. The best "gladiator school" of that era !
