Hotel Porn: 7 Hotels So Luxurious, It’s Criminal

Say hello to your next vacay…

There’s nothing quite like the experience of staying in a truly amazing hotel to make you feel like a celeb.

But these seven hotels take indulgence to the next level with luxe factor so unbelievable, they look like they belong in a movie set. And though they’re exxy, these places are worth every penny (and then some). So start saving, because these are the hotels you need to stay in before you die…
