    While many travelers treat the hotel as simply a spot to sleep while vacationing, some of us enjoy a one-stop shop that has everything from award-winning restaurants and daytime entertainment to a great location and comfortable accommodations. For those who prefer an all-encompassing hotel, the members and editors of travel website have found “The Top 5 Hotels You Don’t Need to Leave."

    • W South Beach — Miami

    When you’re located in the middle of prime South Beach real estate, only six blocks from the pedestrian mecca of Lincoln Road, it may be hard to stay inside all day. Nevertheless, the W South Beach provides guests with many persuasive arguments for never leaving the property. To start, the hotel’s two restaurants are excellent: Mr. Chow serves its Chinese cuisine in a see-and-be-seen venue, while The Dutch, a modern take on the oyster bar, serves delicious comfort food in a beautiful but unpretentious setting. In addition to a nightclub on the premises, the hotel’s communal spaces are creatively allocated leaving many dark corners and comfy couches, both indoors and outdoors, for lounging and drinking. The hotel also features a heated outdoor pool, a Bliss Spa, a full fitness center, and the sands of South Beach and the Atlantic Ocean are only a few short steps away.

    • Faena Hotel & Universe — Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Few hotels are as grand and comprehensive as the Faena; after all, it single-handedly revived an entire district of the Paris of South America. Built in the Puerto Madero area of Buenos Aires, the complex began a complete revitalization within the district. Designed by Philippe Starck, the hotel has both rooms and residences, fostering a sense of community as well as a great variety of venues and spaces throughout the complex. Food is served at El Mercado, the hotel’s traditional restaurant, as well as the Bistro, a bright white Philippe Starck creation that serves a mix of European and Argentinean dishes. The Poolbar provides some serious-people watching, as well as food and drinks, and stays open to 3 am every night. If you’d prefer to catch a true performance, El Cabaret also presents a nightly show that explores the history of tango with food and drink served throughout the performance. For those who need to recover from overindulging, the hotel’s second floor features a Spa Hammam & Gym, offering daily yoga lessons, crystal and stone energy work, and more traditional spa therapies.
