Where: St. Andrews, Scotland

What it costs: $1,900 per night

What’s inside: The Royal & Ancient suite enjoys an exceptional location above golf's most famous par 4 -- the Road Hole -- on golf's most famous course, the Old Course. The 1,257-square-foot space pairs a fabulous bedroom with a spacious Kohler bathroom with twin sinks, a separate bath and shower room, as well as a guest WC. Tactile fabrics and eye-catching detail are everywhere, and natural light floods the suite through floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto your own private balconies in both the lounge and bedroom. For golfers, the views are unrivaled. The stunning beauty of the natural links leading to the West Sands beach and the distant towers of St Andrews is unforgettable.
