From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The Hamptons have never been a hotel hotbed, but a few choice properties are emerging amid the 12-foot privet hedges and manicured lawns. The Reform Club, built on the site of a run-down shingle-covered bed and breakfast, opened in 2009 in the discreet East Hampton hamlet of Amagansett, where the neighbors include Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul McCartney, and Jerry Seinfeld. The look in the seven suites and three cottages is breezy and low-key: white wood paneling, taupe sofas, linen-covered headboards, embroidered bedspreads. Each suite and cottage has different contemporary art—a headless, one-armed woman makes frequent appearances in prints and paintings—a coffee table piled high with art and history tomes, iPod dock, and, best of all, a working fireplace. Voluminous bathrooms with mosaic floors (ours had his and hers walk-in showers) and Bulgari products are another highlight. Unless you're at the beach or browsing East Hampton's pricey boutiques (be driven to either in the hotel's SUV, or borrow a bike), you'll be tempted to stay in your own quarters, which include a terrace in most cases. The communal room, where breakfast is served if you choose not to have it chez vous, is functional but uninspiring.—2010 Hot List

Which room to book: Spring for a one-bedroom cottage and have your very own house in the Hamptons.
