2020 certainly did not turn out the way any of us expected—and yet, the Indagare Community continued to get out on the road and into the world, in new ways. Since last April, these are the hotels that you turned to, more than any others. Indagare’s 20 most-booked hotels during Covid are overwhelmingly domestic, and we saw a rising popularity in trips to the northeast, out west and to warmer climes. We’re grateful to these properties for welcoming our members safely and responsibly, and we look forward to helping more of you experience them in the seasons ahead. Plus: as always, we can help recommend the destinations that are right for you—with tips for finding hotels with freestanding accommodations, private villas, yacht charters and more—as well as testing and insurance advice, travel safety strategies and much more.Contact Indagare or your Trip Designer to start planning a getaway to these hotels—for this year and the future. Our team can match you with the accommodations and activities that are right for you and provide information on coronavirus travel safety, destinations that are open to travel, Covid-19 hotel policies, transportation options, private villas and charters and more.
In the words of one of our members who recently visited: "After nearly a year of sticking close to home in New York, I found myself a bit nervous heading down to Tennessee. But even just a few hours at Blackberry Mountain made the pre-trip jitters—and planning for Covid-testing before, during and after the trip—well-worth it. Spending mornings wandering freely (and, admittedly, getting lost a few times) throughout miles of hiking trails, indulging in the truly spectacular cuisine and getting to talk with the knowledgeable, interesting and kind staff members brought our family so much joy—and staying in our own cottage gave us the freedom to approach the experience according to our comfort levels."
In the words of one of our members who recently visited: “We really enjoyed the trip to Saint Lucia. Sugar Beach was very well-run. We had a ‘butler’ assigned to us who was lovely—very helpful with anything we needed. We each enjoyed the massages, and the spa is very cool: the rooms are literal treehouses...Covid precautions were very good: everyone wore masks, and everything was outside.”

. There’s a lot to love, from its famous pink façade and Beverly Hills location to the private bungalows, poolside cabanas and beautifully landscaped gardens...and the hotel’s legendary history, that bold banana leaf wallpaper and the Polo Lounge, which is still a favorite with actors and industry moguls alike. The iconic hotel, which is part of the Dorchester Collection (along with the Hotel Bel-Air), has 208 rooms, 23 bungalows and a brand-new spa; rooms on higher floors have the best views. Naturally, the pool is the place to be, if you’re looking to see and be seen.
From Indagare Member Jolie Goodson on her experience: “The staff was especially nice, and the service really stood out. The hotel is very welcoming and cool. They were serious about Covid and enforced the wearing of masks with everyone. We felt safe and taken care of. We honestly had the best time and did not want to leave!”
We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. At many of them, Indagare members receive special amenities.Get In Touch
