I’m obsessed with travel and hotels. To satisfy my wanderlust, or in this case, hotel lust, here are 25 of my favorite hotels that I follow on Instagram (in no particular order).
1. Baccarat Hotels
While the hotel doesn’t post often, I look forward to their afternoon tea set up shots. Baccarat is actually a maker of fine crystal items that branched out to hotels, with a property in NYC. They bring their beautiful crystal into afternoon tea as seen in their tea trays and bowls.
2. Four Seasons Buenos Aires
I stayed at Four Seasons Buenos Aires a few years back. I could’ve chosen many other hotels but because of their use of social media, I was sold. Today, the hotel is doing a great job experimenting with Instagram’s live video feature.
3. Peninsula Hotels
With 10 properties around the world, The Peninsula Hotels’ main Instagram account showcases each of them beautifully.
4. The Kensington
This is actually a picture I took, which was regrammed by The Kensington! The Kensington is a beautiful boutique hotel and their account does its best to show its interior design, dining offers and events through sharing its guests’ best content.
5. Hotel Café Royal
One of the many hotels in London that I want to stay at. I added this to the list because of their use of Instagram to execute a holiday competition—really creative!
6. The Ritz-Carlton
The Ritz-Carlton’s main Instagram account showcases all the locations that their properties are located in using stunning shots by past guests.
7. Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris
Probably one of the most beautiful lobby flower arrangement and decorations I’ve seen (through photos) is by Four Seasons Paris. Especially during the holidays, look out for their Jeff Leatham designed displays.
8. The Plaza Hotel
The Plaza isn’t just a hotel. It’s an icon of New York City. Their Instagram account presents what you can eat, do, see, celebrate and enjoy at the hotel.
Another iconic hotel, Claridge’s not only shares hotel happenings, events, interiors, and my personal favorite, afternoon tea shots, but also pictures around London.
10. Firmdale Hotels
Firmdale Hotels’ Instagram account is known to have shots of their incredible interior design across all hotels. Most are in the U.K. but you can find one in NYC too.
11. Shangri-La Hotel, Paris
Shangri-La Paris’ location, really close to the Eiffel Tower, means amazing shots of Paris’ famous landmark all over their Instagram account.
12. Four Seasons Resorts Maldives
A night at any of the Four Seasons Maldives Collections is a lot of money. That said, be prepared to see some pretty impressive content on their Instagram account.
13. Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire
I’m including this hotel on the list because its been on my radar for a long time. Horseback riding and afternoon tea in the English countryside is an ideal vacation to me.
14. Burj Al Arab
Quiet possibly the most luxurious hotel in the entire world, take a peek into what it’s like to stay there through their Instagram account.
15. Shangri-La Hotel, London
Another hotel in London that I really want to stay at. The Shangri-La London is located in The Shard, one of the top tourist attractions for views of the city.
16. Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts
Another hotel company that shares the best of their properties all around the world. This picture on their Instagram account shows their property in Istanbul.
17. Waldorf Astoria
Waldorf Astoria also shares photos from their properties around the world, with the occasional promotion.
18. Casa Gangotena
Another picture by me, shared by Casa Gangotena. This boutique hotel in Quito, Ecuador is one of the city’s most luxurious. It’s also the only place in the entire city that you can have a traditional afternoon tea. Follow them for promotions and fun facts about the city.
19. Red Carnation Hotels
Each Red Carnation Hotel looks amazing and I want to stay at them all. Check out their Instagram account to see what I mean.
20. Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group
While most individual Mandarin Oriental properties have their own accounts, I like following their main account to see pictures from around the world.
21. Belmond Safaris
Take a peek into three luxurious safari lodges by Belmond in Northern Botswana through their Instagram account. You’re guaranteed lots of animal shots.
22. Bulgari Hotels & Resorts
There aren’t many Bulgari Hotels, but follow their Instagram account because they have other properties planned to open in the next few years.
23. Four Seasons Hotel Doha
I’m including Four Seasons Doha on this list because of their use of Instagram stories. They frequently make a fun story, making you want to visit for their dining experiences.
Belmond isn’t just a hotel group, they also have a line of luxury train journeys including the British Pullman and Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
25. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
With so many Four Seasons properties included in this list, I also had to add the main Four Seasons account. Regrams from guests staying at properties around the world and updates on their private jet journeys are worth a follow.
