There seems to be a trend, these days, for hotels to have peek-a-boo showers. People seem to demand for sexy rooms, no matter what part of the globe you’re in. However, voyeuristic shower rooms can be tiring if everyone’s already offering them. The hotels below show a whole new meaning to being sexy.

The W South Beach


Some people call Miami the “naked city” for a very good reason: it’s certainly one of the world’s sexiest. At the W South Beach, if you book a night at their “Wonderful Rooms”, you’ll feel nothing but sexy. What could possibly feel sexier than pure white space? Only this glass pane separates the very white bed from the very white receiving space. Out of the whiteness of it all, you’ll have an enhanced view of either the ocean or Miami’s skyline.

Treat yourself to a holiday fit for a royalty. Here are some castles in Europe from which you can choose your royal highness:

Thornbury Castle (England)


The Thornbury Castle in South Gloucs has been witness to the complexities of royal life, betrayals, romance, imprisonments and beheadings.  Believe it or not, you can get the chamber where Ann Boleyn and Henry VIII used to stay.

Dromoland Castle Hotel and Country State (Ireland)


This castle in Clare, Ireland was first constructed during the 16th century and the castle that you see today was completed around 1835. It now serves as a 5-star hotel complete with a golf course, spa, and great food. Back in 2004, then US President George W. Bush stayed overnight at Dromoland for a summit involving the US and the European Union. The most powerful man in the world was kept safe by around 7,000 policemen, private security, and the military.


Tips for Locating a Hotel

The best way to locate a hotel to stay in while traveling is to obtain state hotel information booklets/pamphlets, which are often left in restaurants or gas stations located at exits off the main highways. These booklets all contain discount coupons for the participating hotels, with prices much lower than prices available if you called a main hotel reservation service.

Normally, you do not have to plan by making advance bookings. Virtually all hotels located off these highways have some vacancy. This way you can continue your travels if you are not tired, or you can pull off the road and stop sooner should you become tired, or if the weather is bad. And, if the hotel you choose should happen to be booked, you can continue a little further to the next hotel.
However, if you are traveling with children, especially young children, we strongly recommend you do make advance booking arrangements. There is nothing worse than young, tired, cranky children if you’re looking for a hotel.
