If a bachelorette isn’t well-documented on Instagram, did it even take place? Let’s face it, in the age of social media, more than a few of us have planned a trip according to how good it will look on the feed. So whether you’re going for debauchery in Las Vegas or tasteful in Napa Valley, we went ahead and rounded up the 10 most Instagrammable hotels in the country, so you can rest-assured that the memories you’re making will also be picture-perfect.
New Orleans, home of beignets, bourbon, and the blues. Capture all the charm and history the city has to offer at the Henry Howard Hotel—a stylish and unique boutique hotel pairing old world elegance with modern comfort. Located in the picturesque Garden District, the hotel is set in an original 1860s townhouse-style mansion. Picture Corinthian columns, perfectly appointed guest rooms, gorgeous galleries, and an abundance of natural light. The hotel was thoughtfully designed with a curated mix of vintage and custom-designed furniture. Plus, each room features New Orleans-inspired wallpaper depicting iconic landmarks and characters, various instruments from a second-line jazz band, and commissioned artwork by local artists.
For those looking for more of a rustic weekend, look no further than Scribner’s Lodge tucked in the heart of the Catskills. Reimagined by Brooklyn-based design firm Studio Tack, the former 1960s motor lodge boasts the very best a mountain retreat has to offer. Each one of the 38 contemporary rooms is outfitted with mid-century furniture, dark maple floors, terra-cotta tiles, and layered Persian rugs. Opt for an Instagram on the balcony overlooking the Catskill Mountains, in the library by the fireplace, or poolside surrounded by greenery.
The ultimate desert oasis in the heart of Palm Springs, this Moorish-themed hotel revolves around its impressive pool. Every space in the 57-room resort features pops of print, retaining the charming features from the original Spanish colonial architecture. Arched entryways, ceramic tile floors, floor-to-ceiling wallpaper, and private hot tubs make this spot a getaway made in Instagram heaven.
Named after its address, Zero George hotel is comprised of five restored historic homes and carriage houses set within a picturesque courtyard. Each building has all the charm of old Charleston, but the rooms themselves feel modern with a neutral, warm palette and refined furnishings. Whether you opt for a ride on their complimentary fleet of mint-colored bikes or cozy up on their veranda couches, you’re sure to capture every ounce of Southern charm all in one snap.
Welcome to the hotel equivalent of Mad Men. Just steps from the action, The Fairline Hotel is a blast from the past with its striking typography, bold prints, and rich colors. Recently opened in March, the hotel boasts retro-modern decor, bringing back all the character, style, and personality from the ‘60s. The photo ops are endless: from their custom embroidered robes, newly opened Mile End Deli, impeccably designed lobby, and panoramic views from the rooftop.
Formerly the Oceanside Hotel, this refurbished seaside getaway opened in the summer of 2017. Along Montauk’s Umbrella Beach, this 34-room retreat features beach-y furnishings imported from Bali, crisp linens from Hill House Home, and a no-frills complimentary breakfast. Whether you opt for surf lessons, yoga on the lawn, or lunch at the best lobster shack in town, this place is the stuff Instagram dreams were made of.
Created in honor of the patron saint of music and poetry, the Saint Cecilia draws all of its inspiration from the rock and roll and beat poetry of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Set in a fourteen-room Victorian mansion, each room is decorated with its own distinct character and color, outfitted with silky drapes, velvet furniture, monogrammed bed linens, giant chandeliers, and Le Labo products. The secluded property and lush grounds offer a unique sense of privacy, despite being situated steps away from the heart of Austin. By far, the standout Instagram shot is of the hotel’s pool with an oversized neon sign reading “SOUL” lighting up the space.
1 Hotels have been popping up on Instagram feeds over the past year—particularly after their rooftop pool opened in Brooklyn with views of the Manhattan skyline. But their first location in South Beach encompasses everything we love about the hotel chain. Sitting directly on the beachfront, the One offers pristine views of the ocean and all the rooms are designed using living, natural materials. The light and breezy aesthetic feels Zen and relaxing—the perfect tropical escape. So whether you choose to take a photo of your meal at their plant-based restaurant, lounging at one of their four unique outdoor swimming pools, or in the backseat of one of their Tesla house cars (that provide complimentary rides for all guests), the opportunities are endless.
For the earthier bride and her gang, consider a stay at Treebones Resort in Big Sur. At Treebones, all the rooms are housed within individual solar-powered yurts, including all the typical furniture you’d find in a hotel room—king sized beds, cozy linens, and dining room tables. There’s an organic garden, views of the ocean, a pool and hot tub, and complimentary breakfast. The one catch? There’s no WiFi in the rooms. All the more time to take your photos, live in the moment, and plot how to upload them later.
There’s nothing more Insta-worthy than a bold and colorful palette, and The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach was practically made for social media. Swathed in banana leaf carpet and floor-to-ceiling flamingo pink walls, The Colony Hotel’s Palm Beach style has never been better translated to your phone.
