Sofia Coppola always travels for her movies. During her latest film Somewhere, she was home in Los Angeles; for Lost in Translation she was in Tokyo and for Marie Antoinette, Paris. During all these movies she had to do a lot of research for different locations, so  she’s the perfect person to ask about hotels. Here are her favourites- anywhere.

The Ritz, Paris“Bonafide ‘old Paris’ elegant glamour. For ultimate spoiling.”

Covent Garden Hotel, London“For a homey place and great service. And, of course, the perfect tea.”

Claridge’s, London“I can remember staying there as a kid with my family. I love the deco bar.” (DVF designed a series of the hotel’s rooms and suites. This room is one of them)

Park Hyatt, Tokyo“For sentimental reasons, and the view over Tokyo at night.” (The hotel was the setting of Lost in Translation)

Turtle Inn, Placencia, Belize“My dad has a little resort there on the beach, which feels far from the rest of world.”

Gorakadan Onsen Ryokan, Japan“This traditional onsen—Japanese hot springs and spa resort—deep in the mountains tops the list. ‘Get a room with a private stone bath outside.'”
