Since there’s nothing quite like waking up to Central Park or Tierra del Fuego’s end-of-the-world views out your window, here is a collection of ten hotels that put the humble window to exceptional use.

1.

Chromata
Santorini, Greece — There may be no more sublime a sight in all the world than the caldera at the center of Santorini, and Chromata is blessed with a front-row view.

2.

La Suite
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — A modest elevation above Joatinga Beach means everything to La Suite; this pint-sized boutique might just have the best sea view in all of Rio.

3.

Casa Angelina Lifestyle Hotel
Amalfi Coast, Italy — Sunset is when Casa Angelina comes alive; the views from the terraces are a forceful reminder of everything that’s special about the Amalfi Coast.
Book it →

4.

Sumahan on the Water
Istanbul, Turkey — It’s no exaggeration: Sumahan is perched right on the edge of the Bosphorus, in an upscale residential neighborhood, looking back towards the bustle of the west bank.
Book it →

5.

Jade Mountain
Soufrière, St. Lucia — Three walls is more than enough; you wouldn’t want a pane of glass coming between you and your front-row view of St. Lucia’s towering, volcanic Pitons.
Book it →

6.

Taj Tashi Thimphu
Thimphu, Bhutan — It’s stunning enough from the outside, but the view from inside the Taj is inspiring as well, surrounded by the rising Himalayas.
Book it →

7.

Mandarin Oriental, New York
New York, New York — From high above Columbus Circle the views range far and wide, from the Midtown skyline to the Hudson River, and a bird’s-eye-view of Central Park.
Book it →

8.

Los Cauquenes Resort & Spa
Ushuaia, Argentina — It’s as close as any Tablet hotel gets to the end of the world, and the views over Beagle Channel are the sort of thing nature documentaries are made of.
Book it →

9.

Andaz West Hollywood
West Hollywood, California — As the rare West Hollywood high-rise, the former Riot Hyatt is known for its unbroken views of the Sunset Strip and the Hollywood Hills.
Book it →

10.

Azur
Queenstown, New Zealand — Azur delivers on all that its name promises — views of the spectacularly cerulean Lake Wakatipu. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that this tableau is framed by a snow-capped mountain range known as “The Remarkables.”
