The Top Luxury Hotel Suites in North America

 The most exceptional of these accommodations deliver on design, style, setting, and overall experience, says Andrew Steinberg, an advisor with the luxury travel company Ovation Vacations in New York who frequently books suites for his discerning clients. 

“They don’t necessarily have to be the biggest rooms at a property, but they do have to mirror or exceed how the people who stay in them live,” Steinberg says. “They’re used to the best of the best and don’t think twice about spending the money for that standard when it comes to their hotels.” 

Steinberg and his partner at Ovation Vacations, Jill Fischbarg, shared their top seven picks with Penta—suite- their clients love and regularly request.
