Parador de Hondarribia, Hondarribia, Spain $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Located in the storybook town of Hondarribia, this 34-room hotel began life as a 10th-century fortress that protected Spain from France, which lies just over a mile up the coast (the exterior walls are still marked by cannon fire). Inside, you'll find exposed stone walls, lots of heavy wood furnishings, 14th-century tapestries, and numerous spears, swords, and suits of armor. A large outdoor terrace offers spectacular sea views to one side (be sure to request a room here) and looks to the stained-glass windows of the city's cathedral on the other. The guest rooms have antique furnishings, wood-beamed ceilings, and heavy stone walls. The parador opens onto Hondarribia's postcard-perfect old town square. From here, a maze of narrow cobblestone streets leads down to the sea.—Guy Fiorita
