After a day of exploring the Swiss Alps or touring Ancient Rome and all its wonders, what better way to call it a day than by getting pampered in style.

From entering a jewel-laden room to feeling like royalty while sitting on an authentic throne in a former palace, these 14 stunning suites deliver the most luxurious stay imaginable.

While these lush accommodations—with warmly decorated spaces to marble-tiled bathrooms and spacious bedrooms—like fancy billiards rooms, contemporary art collections, personalized private bars and private gyms are a large part of the appeal, being able to gaze upon the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower or a shimmering sea from a private terrace adds to the charm.

So, take that private elevator to the penthouse and call up that personal butler and chef to cater to every whim.
