4. Le Meurice -- Paris, France
First of all, to get a room at Le Meurice for a few nights, you have to dish out an entire month's pay (rooms start
at about $1,000/nt). The 160-room hotel sits directly in front of the Louvre (location!), has Alain Ducasse overseeing all the restaurants (great food!), and is recognizable from its cameo in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris
(Woody Allen!). Almost every single European monarch has stayed here, from King Alfonso XIII of Spain to the Prince of Wales (ballers!), and Salvador Dali spent one month out of each year for thirty years in the Royal Suite (art history!). While we're at it, Jay-Z and Kanye recorded at this very spot (swagger!).
