Imagine being on vacation. You go down to enjoy a dip in the pool, and when you look around, among the sea of people is Taylor Swift or Tom Cruise. What will you do? Do you run up to them, shed any degree of shyness left in your body and ask for a photo? Or will you simply ignore them and proceed with your day? For many, it is quite thrilling to spot a celebrity, especially if you are also a guest at that particular hotel.
Listed below are some of the more luxurious hotels where celebrities had been seen at one time.
THE WALDORF ASTORIA NEW YORK, USA

They all probably enjoyed sunbathing in the pool area.
THE LITTLE NELL, ASPEN, COLORADO, USA
There are times that celebrities like to spend a little on gas and go on a road trip. They might come and visit Aspen, Colorado, and stay in The Little Nell.

The hotel is quite proud of its haute cuisine and the bottles of wine it stores in the cellar. During the winter, stars, like Kevin Costner, Elle Macpherson, Mariah Carey and Jack Nicholson, are regular visitors to the warm and fuzzy place. As they say, when it is zero degrees outside, head for someplace warmer.
