Getting Warm Has Never Been So Cool: 15 Hotel Fireplaces We Love

One of our favorite hotel lounges that just happens to have an amazing fireplace is the London Edition. This photo doesn't begin to describe how great a lobby space this is - ya really got to be there

Chilly winter weather got you down, road warriers? Chin up, as you bundle up, and seek warm refuge in the lounge of your favorite hotel. There's a pretty good chance there's a fireplace in the lounge or bar that should take the chill out of everything but your drink.

In modern times such as these, hotel fireplaces are selected more for ambiance and environmentally-friendly objectives than for roasting marshmallows. But there's no denying that hotels have made fireplaces a major feature in the communal spaces, guest rooms (if you're lucky or have a platinum Amex), rooftops, and even the spa. Lifestyle brands as in W Hotels, for example, typically have a fireplace in their "Living Rooms" , aka lobbies.

Just in case you hadn't paid much notice before, we've compiled a photo gallery of hotel spaces that include a fireplace. Have a look around these hotels, and if you're in a hotel now, go find one there. If there isn't one, show the hotel this story and say, "But all the cool kids have them."

Hotel can have many pleasantly surprising amenities. Like complimentary bath salts next to a soaking tub or a menu of different pillow types, and of course there's our favorite amenity of free and fast WiFi. But rarely does it happen that you swing open your room door and—BOOM—in-room fireplace.

Usually associated with 5-star hoighty-toighty hotels most likely in Europe, hotel room fireplaces are super rare these days. We just ran into our very first ourselves, at New York State's 265+ year old Mohonk Mountain House. We'll have more on the hotel for you next week, but for now, let's talk fireplaces.

So what do you think—are in-room fireplaces cute and homey or space-wasting scary fiery things?
