From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

Hotelier-chef Michael Caines's latest Abode hotel, in the heart of Canterbury, suggests that Caines is getting ever better at his game. Located in a building that dates back to the Middle Ages, the 72-room Abode has been transformed by glass doors and walls that open up the foyer and adjoining champagne bar into a spacious, light-filled space, all without destroying the historic atmosphere, which lingers in its exposed beams and original wood-frame windows. The "Comfortable" and "Desirable" rooms can be a tight fit; you'll do better to book a larger "Enviable" room for $88 more. Do reserve a table at the Michael Caines restaurant, where you may find yourself seated near such local bigwigs as the dean of the cathedral while dining on modern English food that rivals the best in London.

When to go: From April through October, Canterbury's gardens and surrounding landscape are at their best.
