The author has taken a minimalist approach with his text and has let the excellent photos do the talking. Each of the roughly 50 hotels featured has a very short write up highlighting interesting facts and history of the establishment (in English, French, and German), followed by several pages of photos that work fantastically well to convey why the hotel was included among the "Best of Europe".
I very much enjoyed this book!
Note: I was provided a review copy of this book by the publisher, but the in no way influences my rating or comments.
I have been in many European hotels that would be better examples of both the luxury of the past and innovative modern design. So the book cannot be said to be the ultimate exemplar. But seeing rooms that the public is generally excluded from was enlightening. It may be that the rich prefer this decor and so the book realistically depicts the current standards.
If you have an interest in an even greater number of styles, I found Luxury Hotels Top of the World included some of the same hotels and photos. But it also showed hotels on other continents influenced by their traditional architecture.
