The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Some people prefer to read a magazine in the restroom, but we'd much rather gaze out over a stunning view. There's nothing we love more than exotic sights, no matter where we're taking in the view -- the shower, tub, or elsewhere. From Hong Kong to Miami, Boston to Barcelona, here are our favorite hotel views from the best seat in the house. Sure, it boasts a 10,000-square-foot spa, $4 million worth of modern art, and some of Miami's grandest rooms. But the 124-room ONE Bal Harbour also has luxurious bathrooms with amazing views, many of of which look out at the ocean or city. We'd even say the hotel has one of the best bathrooms in Miami.

None, however, compare to the views in the Penthouse suite bathroom, which looks out over the private balcony and East River from the tub and toilet area. The European-style rooms at the Peninsula Hong Kong are classic and tasteful, but none compare to the Grand Deluxe Harbour View Suite and it's stunning views from the deep soaking tub.
