1) James Hotel
Scottsdale, Arizona. New York restauranteur Stephen Hanson (who learned the trade in W Hotels) developed the new hip and affordable hotel, which has already hosted Sammy Sosa, Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton. Travel + Leisure magazine dubbed it the "sexiest new hotel" in its July 2004 issue.

2) 25 Hours
Hamburg, Germany. The staff is in Pumas, the rooms come in Small, Medium, and Large, and the lobby has a bowl full of complimentary Gummy bears. There's nothing ordinary at this energetic hotel, where guests under 26 years old pay less than the rest of us. The hotel bar serves sushi all day, and rooms have free Internet access.

There's even a flat-screen TV in the marble and granite bathroom. The Bathhouse spa offers unique treatments like scen-tao stone reflexology.

5) Maritime Hotel

Complimentary homemade ice cream, chocolates and champagne will make you feel pampered.

7) Hi Hotel
Nice, France. Uberhip style with individually designed rooms interpreting themes like "white & white," "monospace" (think bright primary colors and cubes), and "outdoor terasse" (smooth wood floors, white sheets and sky-blue walls).
