1. Hôtel du Palais Biarritz

The only historical palace on the French Atlantic coast, Hôtel du Palais Biarritz, is this majestic property that was first built in 1854 by Napoleon III for his wife, Eugénie de Montijo. The renovation process rejuvenated and embellished its original and unconventional splendor, respecting the hotel’s history and legend while modernizing certain elements with the guest experience in mind. The hotel’s unique furnishings, rare paintings, and refined tapestries reflect the palace’s history.

Offering unparalleled tranquility and laid-back luxury on one of Europe’s most distinctive coastlines, 7Pines Resort Sardinia represents the first hotel in Italy to join the Destination by Hyatt portfolio and is the first Hyatt-affiliated hotel in Sardinia.
The resort is situated in Baja Sardinia on the Costa Smeralda, just 10 minutes from the Porto Cervo neighborhood.

Piazza Martiri 7 authentically designed the 76 guestrooms with locally crafted features made from natural materials unique to Sardinia and include bespoke weavings, light fixtures, and furniture created from the island’s juniper trees. The natural materials echo in the neutral tones of the rooms, immersing visitors in the lush landscape of the resort’s 37-acre (15-hectare) gardens. The Sea Views rooms, the Suite Del Principe, and the 731-foot (68-square meter) Suite Smeralda overlook the resort’s quiet beaches and have direct beach access.

4. Park Hyatt London River Thames London
Yes you read my fourth-best Hyatt in Europe correctly. The Park Hyatt brand is meant to launch in London in 2023. The Park Hyatt London River Thames will encompass the lower 18 floors of a 42-storey tower currently under construction.
It will be one of London’s best riverside hotels. Park Hyatt London River Thames will offer stunning river views, signature Charlie Whinney pieces, and a convenient location in the heart of London. While the description says the heart of London, the location is less convenient than hotels like the InterContinental and Four Seasons Park Lane, which are in the center of all the tourist activities that you might want to explore.
5. Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill
Before the Park Hyatt actually opens, the best Hyatt in London is the Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill. This is one of the best luxury hotels in London, ideally situated overlooking Portman Square, just a short walk from Oxford Street and Marble Arch, tucked away in upmarket Marylebone. If you know the shops in this area, you will find this hotel just behind Selfridges.
The hotel has a regal entrance with lots of white pillars and white marble in the interior. The bar and restaurant sit on one side of the foyer, and lifts to the rooms can be found off the back of the foyer.
Unsurprisingly, there are many references to Winston Churchill in and around the hotel. The dining within the hotel is fairly unbeatable. Savor idyllic Portman Square views from The Montagu Kitchen as you sit down to enjoy the best British produce inspired by the National Trust’s Chartwell House and Garden in Kent. This is also where you take breakfast.
With an award-winning menu and outdoor seasonally-themed terrace, The Churchill Bar & Terrace is the perfect place to unwind with creative cocktails and light bites in a chic setting. Within the bar, there is an olde world cigar room-type feel. Inspired by Sir Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine, The Churchill Bar & Terrace offers award-winning cocktails and delicious dining in a glamorous setting tucked away behind Oxford Street.
For some of the best dining in London can also be found here. Try the delicious Italian fare at Locanda Locatelli, a Michelin-starred restaurant located in the hotel. Locanda Locatelli features a menu of Italian-inspired cuisine, which has earned the acclaimed chef Giorgio Locatelli a Michelin star. The fresh, flavorful menu shines amid the chic ambiance. Enjoy homemade pasta, roasted monkfish, slow-cooked suckling pig, and more. Enhance your meal with a glass of fine Italian wine curated by the sommelier Virgilio Gennaro. The food here is fabulous. The best lobster I have ever had.
Globalist members get free access to the club lounge here, where you also get a decent offering at breakfast and dinner and snacks and drinks throughout the day. While the lounge is pleasant, it is not the best club lounge in London. The view is lacking, and the dinner offering becomes a scrum with lots of elbows as people push in to grab something from the dishes available. That said, this is still a nice facility and is separated into a family and an adults-only lounge for a quieter place to work.
Rooms are fairly standard by London standards. The nicest views overlook Portman Square. The amenities are Molton Brown and are really nice.
