From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
It's location, location, location at this smart city inn overlooking the vibrant Victoria & Alfred waterfront. Excellent shopping, dining, and entertainment options are all within strolling distance, yet the city's famous natural beauty—Table Mountain and the Clifton beach scene—is equally accessible. Local interior guru François du Plessis retained the Victorian architectural features of what was the harbor engineer's residence in the mid-1800s, then added a cosseted, contemporary feel by using natural tones and sensuous fabrics. There are five guest rooms—three with balconies overlooking Table Bay—and a suite that opens onto its own private garden; and all have complimentary minibars. There is an elegant morning room for breakfast and lunch, but if bacon-and-eggs in close proximity to fellow guests sounds too cozy, staff will arrange to serve breakfast in your room or next to the pool. Guests have access to OneWellness, a top-notch gym and spa facility next door.—2009 Hot List

When to go: January through April, after the Christmas rush.

Which room to book: The generously proportioned suite has a private garden.
