2. Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville

Picturesque vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains add to the stately nature of this hotel. The historical appeal of its Tudor-style exterior is complemented inside with guest rooms that include antique fixtures and hand-carved furniture. And typical of every Kessler Collection property, the hotel seamlessly blends art, décor, and luxury.

3. Beaver Creek Lodge

With 72 spacious guest suites and a selection of three-bedroom condominiums, this hotel has every amenity imaginable. Located at the base of Colorado’s Beaver Creek Mountain, the property offers convenient access to snowskiing and other winter activities. State-of-the-art touches, such as flat-screen TVs in every room, bring a modern appeal to the hotel, while its rustic-chic décor maintains a connection to the natural surroundings.

4. Mansion on Forsyth Park

This iconic Savannah hotel was renovated and reopened by Kessler in 2006. With its Versace furniture and Verona marble accents, the Victorian Romanesque structure exudes elegance. In addition, this AAA Four-Diamond property features more than 400 pieces of original artwork.
