Now, Wouldn't This Be Loverly?
Ed. Note: Usually we do these feature on Thursdays but we couldn't get to it yesterday. Enjoy! We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
Any hotel with the word Palais in it seems like a safe bet for a killer view and the Hotel du Palais in Biarritz, France does not disappoint. HotelChatter Flickr Pool member SehParks sent us this south-facing view of the pool and the beach. But if you can't get a south-facing room the western views are rather charming as well.
The room furnishings are palatial in the 1990s sense but the wireless internet is free. Room rates start at 425 Euros.
