An Oscar worthy holiday with Booking.com
With Film Awards season in full swing, fever is hotting up both sides of the Atlantic – and Booking.com is excited to share its nominees for best properties for travellers seeking an Oscar-worthy holiday.
The following recommendations are perfectly paired with some of this year’s Academy Awards’ Best Picture hopefuls. Each of these properties are available to instantly book on Booking.com, enabling fans to find themselves a break linked to their favourite films.
This attractive family-run property is nestled in picturesque Potsdam, nearby a number of beautiful and historic palaces, including Babelsberg Castle and Sanssouci Palace, and just a short stroll away from Glienicke Bridge, which featured prominently in this year’s film Bridge of Spies.
This stunning castle located in Southeastern Ireland has a history dating back to the 13th century. The property and its rooms remain heavily steeped in the elegance of its past, allowing guests to easily embrace the beauty of this small town from which the film Brooklyn’s love-torn protagonist hails.
Coober Pedy, Australia
Fans of this year’s Mad Max: Fury Road will enjoy this unique property that offers an incredibly comfortable and modern stay underground in the strikingly wild and isolated landscape of northern South Australia.
Portland, Maine, USA
Situated in the building formerly occupied by the Portland Press Herald, the hotel’s décor is heavily themed around journalism and the newspaper business, including stylish furnishings such as classic typewriters and vintage office desks and chairs. The hotel’s bar, The Inkwell, once housed the newspaper’s busy city room, which movie goers will recall from this year’s film Spotlight is brimming with energy and intellect within a news operation.
New York, USA
This 5-star hotel on the edge of the city’s bustling financial district delivers stellar views of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. It’s no wonder at all why this well-appointed hotel remains a top choice for Wall Street’s movers and shakers akin to the characters featured in this year’s movie The Big Short.
This incredibly designed hotel is a sci-fi fan’s dream. While fans of The Martian are not yet able to travel to the Red Planet, this hotel offers a selection of guest rooms that resemble an upscale, luxury space station that is difficult to match anywhere in this world.
As though it were lifted straight off the screen from the film The Revenant, this luxury tent property in Northwestern Montana places guests in the heart of one our country’s most extraordinary wilderness landscapes. With the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, guests may choose to just relax and enjoy a supremely comfortable “glamping” experience rich with a wide array of amenities, or explore their wild side and venture into nearby Glacier National Park or to the North American Wildlife Museum.
THE BEST OF THE REST…
Los Angeles, USA
Step back in time to Hollywood’s Golden Era at this warm and extravagant hotel located in resurgent downtown Los Angeles. The grandeur of its guest rooms might only be surpassed by its Gallery Bar, where guests will feel as though they have stepped on screen in Trumbo.
New York, New York
This internationally renowned hotel is as quintessentially New York today as it was when it opened its doors more than a century ago. And with a rich on-screen history dating back to the 1950s it’s no wonder this year’s Carol chose The Plaza’s historic Oak Room bar as the setting for its heartwarming close.
Located in Copenhagen’s must-see Tivoli Gardens, this chic boutique hotel is housed in an impressive Moorish-style building that features elegantly designed and furnished guest rooms harkening back to the days of the early 20th century that fans of The Danish Girl are sure to thoroughly enjoy.
Had the characters in the film The Hateful Eight sought shelter from the blizzard at this hotel, their story would have very likely turned out much different. This sophisticated and upscale rustic property is nestled in the picturesque San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado where it caters to both guests looking to relax and soak in the majestic beauty of the area, as well as those wishing to embark into the mountains for some adventure.
