Grand Hotel, Marstrand, Sweden

This picturesque 1892 landmark, located on a small island off the west coast of Sweden, was once the summer residence of King Oscar II — proof that some things never go out of style. In fact, its enduring charm is what keeps it fresh for travelers, who come to escape the rush of modern-day living. With no cars allowed on the island, strolling is a pleasure, along streets that wind from the Carlsten Fortress to the lively harbor. At the latter, traditional fishing boats are joined by the expensive yachts of jetsetters who know that sometimes playing it low-key is hotter than seeing and being seen. Not surprisingly, fresh seafood is a highlight at the hotel's Grand Tenan restaurant.
