From dining next to a fire pit on the beach, to lounging by the hearth in a chic New York City penthouse, here are five luxurious hotel fireplaces that will keep us warm throughout winter.
1. Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa
SINGER ISLAND, FL
BEACHFRONT FIRE PIT: Located on the white sandy beaches of Singer Island, Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa is a resort you won’t want to leave. The luxurious oceanfront property is known for its spacious suites, beach access and upscale amenities. By day, take in the sea salt breeze by the pool or on the beach. At night, sit by your own private fire-pit (there are several for guests to enjoy), order a drink, a bite to eat and sigh, “Now, this is the life.” Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa: 3800 North Ocean Drive, Singer Island Riviera Beach Florida 33404 USA.
2. Ivy Lounge at Gansevoort Park Avenue
Penthouse fireplace: Perched high above the city streets, Gansevoort Park Avenue‘s three-level penthouse lounge is one of New York’s chicest escapes. Lounge-style seating, board games and hand-crafted cocktails make you feel right at home. Guests can admire the glow of the Ivy Lounge’s terrace fireplace, take a dip in the heated pool concealed by a retractable roof, and admire the breathtaking, unobstructed views of the iconic Empire State Building. Ivy Lounge at Gansevoort Park Avenue: 420 Park Ave S, New York, NY.
3. The Water Club at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa
Sultry hideaway by the hearth: Atlantic City’s Borgata is known for having it all – a spa, event space, five heated pools and retail shops – all with direct access to entertainment, dining, and nightlife at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. The hotel also has a sultry hideaway in The Water Club’s lobby lounge, The Sunroom, an intimate lounge that offers a menu of light bites by celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian, as well as cozy seating by a roaring fireplace. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa: 1 Borgata Way, Atlantic City, NJ.
4. The Otesaga Hotel
Lakeside fire bar: Enjoy the great outdoors while savoring a glass of wine by the fire at The Otesaga’s Fire Bar. Situated in a beautiful natural setting, the circular bar encourages conversation among friends, and the making of memories. It’s the perfect spot to watch the sunset over Lake Otsego (the infamous Glimmerglass). The Otesaga Hotel: 60 Lake St, Cooperstown, NY.
5. JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa
Western warmth: Visitors to the West’s most Western town can kick off their boots and unwind by the fire at this homey oasis in the heart of the Sonoran Desert. The original adobe-beehive fireplace (installed in 1936, the same year the resort was built) is flanked by vibrant Navajo rugs and plush leather couches — perfect for travel-weary cowboys to sink into at the end of a long day. This fireplace can be found in the lobby and is best enjoyed with one of R Bar’s signature margaritas in hand. JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa: 5402 E Lincoln Dr, Scottsdale, AZ.
