"When I arrived in Munich it was one of those moody, rainy days that just beg for a nap," Holly Reich told me when she returned from her trip. "My room was the perfect place!" Set in the Old Botanical Gardens, the Charles Hotel in Munich features a spa with a sauna and steam bath, an indoor heated swimming pool, and some enviable views. Holly's room had a balcony overlooking the gardens and the distant Alps, silk pillows on the bed and heated bathroom floors.
