Our nation’s capital is much more than just monuments and the White House. Over the last few years, DC has built up a burgeoning art scene, with local artists contributing pieces to buildings and hotels. As with all W Hotels, guests will find themselves immersed in art, from Art in the lobby, to guestrooms and restaurants. After a complete floor-to-rooftop renovation, the W Washington D.C. is now fitted with a sleek waterfall in the lobby, political cartoons and graphic murals—everywhere—, and a bathtub with a view of the monument in the E-Wow suite. The hotel’s iconic rooftop, POV has direct views of the White House and Washington Monument as well as a menu of cleverly political cocktails that were made for Instagram.

Amangiri, Utah

Amangiri embraces the areas raw aesthetic and you will too, with untouched Instagram posts. When we say untouched we mean no filter needed. In the morning guests will wake to a deep orange desert, and embrace pink dusk in the evening, and dark starry night. There are countless photo opportunities from your suites lap pool with desert views to the surrounding formations and landscapes. If you’re feeling adventurous take an early morning hot air balloon flight or drive to Antelope Canyon for epic canyon photos.

Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur

@EliteTraveler says you should visit Post Ranch Inn for the 4th of July. We agree. "Big Sur’s jagged coastline and rocky beaches along Highway 1 is one of the most beloved areas in the United States, and within the pine tree-filled forest you’ll find a hotel experience like no other. Post Ranch Inn combines the best of luxury living and glamping resulting in an epic treehouse experience. Perched above the ground on steel stilts sit a dozen treehouses with one- or two-bedroom accommodations. Other homes feature dome-like wooden structures and ground-level stays. The cuisine is not to miss: There is one restaurant whose menu changes seasonally based on the local offerings in Big Sur and Monterey, and the wine list is superb. You may not see fireworks nearby (the area fines for any noise pollution and actual pollution) but the sweet smell of pine trees on the edge of the West Coast is enough to keep you satisfied for a long July Fourth weekend."
