Not a hotel, but a tent. My tent. And although a hotel is super comfortable, it is hard to beat spending the night next to an Icelandic hot spring, on a cliff in Jordan. So despite everything (setting up the tent, my extensive morning and evening routines), it probably is one of my favorite places to spend the night.
