The Jefferson, Washington, DC
ODDSSON Hotel, Reykjavik
Located in Reykjavik, Iceland this colorful hotel is also a hostel. With velvety blues and vibrant oranges throughout its cafe, it looks like a scene from The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
Steps away from London's Covent Garden, Rosewood London is equally as stunning inside as it is on its exterior. The symmetry of the hotel's facade is so striking that it leaves us with serious Grand Budapest Hotel vibes.
La Mamounia, Marrakech
This ornately designed hotel located in Marrakech embodies all of the set design we fell in love with in The Darjeeling Limited. La Mamounia is full of warm, inviting colors and ornately designed walls, floors and ceilings. Spoil yourself by getting pampered at their renowned spa.
The Grand Hotel Kronenhof, Pontresina, Switzerland
Built in 1854, this gorgeous Swiss hotel embodies the definition of luxury. If you’ve seen Wes Anderson’s Castello Cavalcanti, a short film he created with Prada, then you’ll appreciate the colors and tones of the Chimney Room at Hotel Kronenhof.
Under Canvas Yellowstone, West Yellowstone, Montana
Live like a Khaki Scout at Camp Ivanhoe from Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, by staying at this gorgeous glamping resort in West Yellowstone, Montana, just 10 minutes from the Yellowstone National Park entrance. You can experience the great outdoors and then return to a luxury tent, on-site restaurant and incredible views.
Surfjack Hotel, Honolulu
One theme that’s prevalent in the set design for The Royal Tenenbaums movie is the amount of wood paneling in their home. It’s like an ode to the popular aesthetic of home interiors in the 1960s. For the ultimate in midcentury-meets-coastal design, be sure to stay at Surfjack in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Petit Ermitage, Los Angeles
Located in West Hollywood, the master lounge at the Petit Ermitage is full of reds, oranges and blues similar to the color scheme in Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. This bohemian wonderland has a saltwater pool as well as original pieces from Dali, Miro and DeKooning.
Hotel Sacher Salzburg
If you’re a fan of The Grand Budapest Hotel, then the Hotel Sacher Salzburg is for you. The hotel has 111 rooms that are full of beautiful paintings and rare antiques — no two hotel rooms look the same. While there, be sure to have a slice of their famous Sacher cake.
Amanjena Resort, Marrakech
Amanjena's baby pink exterior with Moorish design reminds us of both The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Darjeeling Limited. Book your own pavilion with a fireplace and courtyard or a maison with your own private pool at this Moroccan haven.
