Live like Eloise, a pirate, or Aladdin in these themed suites

Who says a hotel has to be just a place to sleep? It’s time to make the hotel the destination by staying in a place that’ll whisk you away the moment you turn the key. Want to sleep in a Jurassic Park Gryosphere?  That’s a thing! How about a fairy world suite that’s so authentic you’ll feel like you’ve shrunken down to the size of a mushroom cap? You can do that, too. From theme park suites to kitschy roadside attractions, here’s our list of amazing themed hotel rooms:

Jurassic World Kids’ Suites at Universal’s Loews Royal Pacific Resort – Orlando, FL

Loews Royal Pacific

These suites have authentic Gyrosphere beds that’ll make your kids feel like they’re going to wheel right out of the room and into the Jurassic section of Universal’s next-door theme park. Kids get their own themed rooms, complete with floors that look like grass, and a Jurassic jungle mural on the wall. Grown-ups will appreciate getting their space, too, with tastefully designed king rooms connected via a door modeled after the dinosaur enclosure.



Live a Fairy’s Life at the Roxbury Motel – Catskills, NY

Roxbury Motel

This two-story cottage is so decked out in magical forest trimmings that will have you thinking you’ve shrunken down and joined Tink and her team in Neverland. The cottage has two bedrooms and a Cedar stairwell bound by branches and greenery that will make you feel like you’re ascending a tree into the canopy above.

Note: If fairies aren’t your thing but a trip to the Catskills is, the Roxbury has several other amazing themed dwellings, including a Medieval Castle-themed cottage that’ll have you feeling like you’ve been whisked into an episode of Game of Thrones, and a Cinderalla-themed cottage that’s got a full-size bathroom nestled inside a giant pumpkin (!).



Step Inside the Adventureland Suite at The Disneyland Hotel – Anaheim, CA

Disneyland Hotel

All we can say is: If you can shell out the few thousand dollars it takes to stay a night at Disneyland’s luxuriously themed suites, we’re jealous. The hotel has five “Signature Suites,” each one more gorgeous than the next. And while it’s hard to narrow down a fave, we’d have to go with the Adventureland suite, a two-bedroom suite decorated with exotic furnishings and one-of-a-kind curios. It looks like a place Indiana Jones would hang with Walt himself.



Step into Agrabah at the Hilton New York Times Square’s Aladdin Palace Suite – NY

Hilton Times Square

Anyone who’s a fan of Aladdin will want to check out this colorful Times Square suite that’s straight out of the fictional land of Agrabah. Furnished with Jasmine-inspired silks, framed prints from the Broadway show, layers of Moroccan rugs, and a genie lamp that was an actual set piece, guests will feel suitably transported (even though the awesome skyscraper view is 100 percent Big Apple).

Guests will also be treated to specialty drinks, complimentary breakfast, and free parking. But the best part? The room comes with up to four premium orchestra seats for the show, located at the New Amsterdam theater right next door.

This suite will be available through Oct. 31.

Slumber In the Jungle at the Madonna Inn – San Luis Obispo, CA

Madonna Inn

This sprawling Victorian mansion just off the 101 Freeway in Central California is a shrine to all things kitsch. It has 110 individually-themed rooms, each one offering its own brand of over-the-top style, from the signature Madonna Suite (think velvet furniture and pink flower prints galore) to the three-bedroom “Harvard Square” with red leather and dark wood touches. But we like the Jungle Rock Room best for its authentic, otherworldly gaudiness, with vines draped across the ceiling and an actual rock waterfall in the shower.



Eloise Suite at The Plaza – New York, NY

Tiny sophisticates will want to hit NYC in style after spending the night at the Eloise Suite at the infamous Plaza Hotel. Inside the perfectly replicated abode, everything is pink and white with a zebra carpet—just as Eloise likes it. Your little Eloise-in-training will feel right at home, especially considering that the closet is stocked with Eloise’s clothes (try them on!) and the shelves are filled with her favorite books, toys, and dolls.

The room also comes with tea for four at The Palm Court, a special welcome letter from Eloise, welcome sweets and goodies chosen by Eloise, and an Eloise gift bag with a special tote bag, Eloise robe, and other fun Eloise gifts



Despicable Me Kid’s Suites at Universal’s Loews Portofino Bay – Orlando, FL

The submarine door (you have to crank the iron wheel to open it!) is just the beginning of the adventure at these immersive suites that will thrill any fan of Gru and the gang. Kids will love sleeping in their own room, which is outfitted with missile-shaped beds and a Minion mural on the wall, while adults get their own quarters with a king-sized bed and not a minion to be found.



“Great Indoors” Family Room at Basecamp Tahoe City, CA

Love the idea of camping but don’t want to deal with setting up the tent and sleeping in actual nature? This family suite is the next best thing! Complete with an indoor tent (already set up for you!), faux firepit, picnic tables, and twinkling ceiling stars, you’ll get the perks of the Great Outdoors—without having to actually be, you know…outdoors. And when you wake up, you can explore the actual wildlife, trails, and outdoor activities Lake Tahoe has to offer (the hotel is a five-minute walk to the lake).



Savannah Room at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Orlando, FL


While the rooms here are spacious and filled with African art and decor to match the theme, the best part of staying at Disney’s upscale safari-themed lodge is the view: Book a Savannah View room and you’ll be able to spot more than 30 species of Disney’s resident African wildlife—including giraffes, ostriches, and zebras—from your hotel room balcony! It’s better than watching TV (at least, that’s what you’ll tell your kids).



Make Like a Pirate at LEGOLAND’s Pirate Island Hotel – Orlando, FL


Say “Arghh” and step inside the colorful pirate suite at LEGOLAND Florida’s newest hotel. The suite comes with a separate kids’ room outfitted with a bunk bed with a pull-out trundle, plus a fully outfitted LEGO play area. Meanwhile, pirate parents can rest easy in their own room while their littles search for treasure (there’s an in-room treasure hunt with real treasure every day!). That, and it’s all just 130 steps from the theme park!

Note: All LEGOLAND Hotels have themed rooms, with choices including LEGO Ninjago Rooms, Adventure Rooms, Kingdom Rooms, and Pirate Rooms. There’s also a “Beach Retreat” hotel with individual Caribbean-style bungalows. 



Get in the Game at the Curtis Hotel’s Video Game Room – Denver, CO

The Curtis

Donkey Kong arcade console? Check! Mario-themed color scheme? Yep! Retro candy to fuel your sugar high? You bet! This tastefully designed retro suite (it opts for sophistication over kitsch-ification) is an ode to 80s and 90s gaming. Your kids will be all, “Where’s the Xbox?” But now’s your chance to show them the art of pre-TikTok fun.

Splurge-Worthy Extra: Want to go old-school with a group? The Curtis (which has a slew of other awesome themed rooms, including a “Ghostbusters” room on the 13th Floor!) has a “90s-inspired package” that lets you rent the whole floor and soak up the 90s era nostalgia with your BFFs. The package includes an endless selection of 80s and 90s snacks (think cheese puffs and Razzles); a set of iconic “moon shoes” for every guest room; a 90s-inspired silent disco; retro clothing accessories including chokers, bucket hats, and slap bracelets; and a dedicated floor attendant who is at your service throughout your stay.



Over-the-Top Themed Suites Outside of the US

The Barbie Ultimate Staycation at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur is everything your Barbie self wishes she had, including a toy Barbie Dreamhouse propped in the room for pretend play, plenty of pink/Barbie branding to keep you in the mood, a “Pink Afternoon Tea,” and a fully stocked closet with enough wardrobe changes for your mini to put on the Barbie fashion show of her dreams.

SpongeBob Squarepants Villa in Punta Cana – This two-bedroom, three-bathroom suite looks just like the famous yellow sponge’s undersea pineapple abode—with indoor and outdoor living areas, an infinity pool, and private butlers to cater to your whims.

Harry Potter Room (the Wizard’s Chambers) in London – You’ll walk through a hidden bookcase down a candlelit,portrait-lined hallway just to find this spellbinding Harry Potter-themed room located inside the 172-year-old Georgian House Hotel. Once inside, the room features stained glass windows, stone walls, archways, trunks, cauldrons, four-poster beds hung with velvet curtains, and an assortment of magical extras that Potter-obsessed muggles will love.
