Top Ten Luxury

RETRO HOTELS

This Top Ten we’re all about retro chic. We’re taking a look at hotels that re-invent the glamour and party style of the 1950s and 1960s. Some because they really were around then, others because they are taking the style and running with it. Either way you have to channel the Rat Pack, have a martini by the pool and indulge in some serious partying while you’re here.
