One of my favorite parts of traveling is getting to stay at some of the many magnificent hotels across the globe. Designers get a unique opportunity when they take on a hotel project. The sky is the limit when given such a grand palette to work with. What we get in return are incredible experiences and a wealth of inspiration.

Here are 10 inspiring hotel spaces that each interpreted luxury in their own ways and offer some ideas to emulate in your own home.
