La Mamounia, Morocco
The historic Marrakesh hotel became an instant favorite of Ms. Paltrow the minute she set foot inside. She raved about the architecture, and the spa, saying “I couldn’t resist a daily Hammam treatment at the hotel’s spa. Get this: 15 minutes in a steam room, a full-body lather in Black Soap, an exfoliating rub down, a Ghassoul (Moroccan clay) body masque, and then a warm shower... Ridiculously lavish!”
The Carlyle, New York City
Despite its recent bad luck, this classic Upper East Side hotel is a Paltrow favorite, and was especially useful while her apartment was being remodeled. She says, "The Carlyle is my favorite big uptown hotel. It's very grown up and old school, almost like another world and time."
Hotel Ritz, Paris
Although closed for renovations until 2014, nonetheless this legendary hotel remains close to the Gwyneth’s heart. No matter how many Parisian new hotels she tries, she always returns to the Ritz. She’s said, “Yes, it costs an arm and a leg, but it's worth it."
