From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Just on the outskirts of Porto overlooking a broad bend in the Douro river, one of the country's newest pousadas is an 87-room gem improbably created from a magnificent 1742 baroque palace by Italian architect Niccolò Nasoni and an adjoining eighteenth-century brick flour mill. If the public rooms of the palace feature elaborate moldings, high ceilings, lavish parquet floors, and antiques, rooms in the former mill are sleek, spacious, and contemporary, with almond walls, ginger-colored wall-to-wall carpeting, and chrome-framed modern furniture. The only reference to the hotel building's industrial past are granite casement windows and the tall dramatic brick factory chimney adjacent to the outdoor pool, which is built on the edge of the river. Overall, the edgy mix throws a bolt of low-key chic that makes this hotel the new best bet in Porto. The hotel also has an indoor pool and a full spa. —2010 Hot List

Which room to book: Get one with a river view so that you watch the famous and now very rare flat-bottomed rabelo boats transporting port wine downriver.
