The Ritz-Carlton company spent $200 million to transform the former DiLido Hotel, an Art Moderne landmark built in 1953 at the foot of Lincoln Road, into a showstopper resort that's a bold step away from the Federal-style-and-Oriental-rug look of its sister properties. Doormen in loose shirts and Panama hats welcome visitors into a lobby decorated in mango, cobalt, and chartreuse tones; an enormous wall of backlit convex mirrors is a great effect. The 375 rooms have a vaguely ocean-liner feel, with bold stripes and dark woods. Best are the six Oceanfront Lanai Suites, just a few grains of sand away from the beach. And proof that this Ritz has a sense of humor, there's a poolside "tanning butler" who applies the appropriate lotions to your basking skin. (We just wish the pool area was a bit larger: There's a daily scramble for lounges.)

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2008, 2007
