Top 5: Hotel Condominiums in Close Proximity to a Big City

Owning a luxury hotel condominium residence in the city is one thing; but the package is only truly complete when the residence is within close proximity to the center of the city. Here is a selection of five new hotel condominiums, each one unrivaled for decadence and location.

Anantara Residences, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

The man-made archipelago of the Palm Jumeirah has become an instant Dubai icon – a seal of quality stamped into the Persian Gulf. The Anantara Residences are nestled into the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, offering the perfect combination of mainland escape, and instant access to Dubai Marina as well as along the coastline to Dubai’s center. The Anantara Residences’ aesthetics are inspired by traditional Thai architecture in an Arabian setting, yet offer all the contemporary touches a resident might demand. Luxurious amenities include three lagoons, a large swimming pool, tennis courts, spa, and banqueting facilities.

The Carlton House, Boston USA

Asked to come up with the finest location in all of Boston, and you’d do well to trump The Carlton House. This elegant 1920s building – formerly the Old Ritz – stands at the entrance to the Public Garden and fronts onto fashionable Newbury Street. The benefits are all-too-obvious: green beauty one way, luxury shopping and upscale dining the other. Those investing in a Carlton House hotel condominium will also get to relish room service, valet parking, 24-hour concierge, fitness club access, and fine dining courtesy of chef Franck Steigerwald.

The Residences at The St. Regis, Mexico City

Mexico City is among the elite of America’s culturally-engrossing metropolises. The 108 private Residences at The St. Regis are located at Paseo de La Reforma 439 – an address that marks the beating heart of Mexico City’s cultural district and the perfect place for a hotel condominium. From here, residents are a short journey from many of the city’s famous landmarks, including the vast Chapultepec Park, where the historic Chapultepec Castle is located. The Residences at The St. Regis may be surrounded by history, yet they themselves are the height of contemporary design: Stunning architecture by Cesar Pelli and Associates, and complementing interior design by Yabu Pushelberg.

The Baglioni, Marrakech

Few cities offer the exotic, old world atmosphere of Morocco. For those who love to submerse themselves in such a city, while enjoying the luxury of a contemporary hotel condominium, The Baglioni surely tops the list. Here on Rue Amizmiz – a stone’s throw from the city center – residential plots averaging 2,000 square meters are on offer. The exciting news about this particular complex is that buyers can construct their own personalized villas, and have them serviced by the renowned Baglioni Hotels. Benefits include a fitness club, spa, and hotel pool. This really is bespoke hotel condo living at its finest.

Bulgari Residences, London UK

Knightsbridge is an area synonymous with London’s upscale shops, fine dining and drinking, and all-round sophistication. Add to this the name Bulgari, and you have the ultimate in London Luxury. The new residences, atop the Bulgari Hotel on 171 Knightsbridge, are the handiwork of Antonio Citterio. The brief Citterio has fulfilled and excelled to create enviable residences, which glint and gleam with the timeless elegance the Bulgari brand has become known for. Not only are the Bulgari Residences located at one of London’s most coveted addresses, they come with all manner of lavish trappings, including a private cinema, bars and a cigar shop.
