Whether shopping is the main reason for your travels or just a happy hobby, hotels are taking notice. Luxe lodgings across the map are creating packages aimed at luring die-hard, designer-seeking guests with special discounts, exclusive access and the assistance of professional stylists.
And the best part, if you shop till you drop, at least you’ll land on luxury linens and have access to room service. From Bal Harbour to Barcelona, these are five of our favorite hotels catering to shopaholics.
Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel)
Pretty Woman boasts one of the most iconic shopping scenes on film, and this Four-Star Beverly Hills beauty takes advantage of its original role in the movie by offering you a Pretty Woman For a Day package.
Vivian Ward wannabes will be indulged with a behind-the-scenes tour of Rodeo Drive’s most famous fashion houses, a personal wardrobe consultation and a special dinner at THE Blvd, all the while being shuffled to and fro in a sleek Mercedes.
At the end of the whirlwind day, relax your overly flexed shopping muscles in a hand-drawn bath with personalized aromatherapy oils that Julia Roberts would likely approve (bring your own Prince tunes).
Shopping at London’s trendy Soho House-operated hotel is dangerously easy: locally based online fashion retailer Net-a-Porter is on speed dial in each room, allowing you to summon a Saint Laurent leather shoulder bag, Tom Ford silk bowtie or Diptyque candle for immediate delivery.
His-and-hers catalogs in each room taunt “forgotten something?” on the cover, when the only thing truly missing will be your restraint. So, when that midnight craving hits, will you order guacamole or a mini Gucci wallet?
El Palace Barcelona
Since La Sagrada Familia won’t be done any time soon (the latest estimate is 2026), skip the queues and take advantage of this opulent Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star property’s El Palace Shopping package for a cultural excursion of a different kind.
Hop on the gratis shuttle for a round-trip transfer to the luxe La Roca Village shopping complex 30 minutes outside the city and enjoy browsing more than 140 brand-name boutiques, including La Perla, Longchamp, Montblanc and Michael Kors.
Plus, you’ll receive a VIP card that entitles you to an additional 10 percent discount on all purchases and access to the La Roca Village lounge for well-earned breaks.
Acqualina Resort & Spa
Bling out your vacation look, and treat yourself in the process, with the Luxury Shopping Package from this Five-Star Sunny Isles Beach retreat.
As Coco Chanel once declared, “jewelry is an ornament,” so prepare to adorn yourself in style with a private presentation from an expert at luxury jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels’ Bal Harbour boutique that comes complete with champagne, light bites and an elegant coffee table book to take home.
Post-retail therapy, indulge in a little extra R&R with a daily $40 credit to spend on sumptuous treatments like the Age-Defying HydraFacial or a hydrating body wrap at the Five-Star spa.
Armani Hotel Dubai
This Four-Star 160-room retreat is, unsurprisingly, a chic shrine to Giorgio Armani’s contemporary design aesthetic.
In addition to basking in the clean lines and marble floors featured throughout the property, you’ll have access to the Armani Galleria for the latest couture selections from the Armani Privé collection, Armani Dolci for sweet Italian delicacies and Armani Fiori for bespoke floral arrangements.
As a bonus, the hotel’s Burj Khalifa location means it is directly across from the expansive Dubai Mall, the second-largest mall in the world with more than 1,200 stores.
