Request a north-facing room at the Le Royal Méridien Bristol (from $113) for a view of the Royal Route, Warsaw’s main promenade, which extends from Castle Square to the Versailles-like Wilanów Castle. The ground-floor coffee shop, Café Bristol, is known for its decadent Viennese coffee.
Walk to the ornate St. John’s Cathedral from Mamaison Le Regina Hotel (from $140), set in an eighteenth-century palace. This is the only hotel in Old Town—the oldest district in the city—an area filled with Renaissance-style homes and cobblestone market squares.
Lounge among antique furniture from the twenties at the Hotel Rialto (from $99), an Art Deco–themed boutique hotel. After a night of partying, relax in the mosaic-tiled, complimentary steam room on the sixth floor.
