Hotel Bellevue, Dubrovnik, Croatia

Concierge.com's insider take:
The Bellevue, which opened in 2006, lives up to its name: Each of the 93 rooms has a view of the Adriatic. Though it's more middle-of-the-road than luxury (like many hotels here, the service can be indifferent at best), the rooms are airy and cleanly designed in calming sand and earth tones with rustic natural fabrics. All of the rooms have gigantic windows, of course, and all but the standard rooms have balconiesit's worth upgrading to a superior. The Bellevue's private beach, screening room, and spa attract a clued-in clientelemostly couples popping over from Paris or London for the weekend and young Americans spending a couple of nights on their way up the Dalmatian Coast. And it's just a 15-minute walk from the Pile Gate, keeping you removed from the hustle and noise of Old Town while still being within walking distance.
