Fast cars, loud engines… and a hotel to die for. Need I say more? For those of us who love to take in Formula 1 while on holiday, it can be hard finding somewhere to stay. Not anymore – we’ve put together the best hotels within touching distance of the best Grand Prix tracks on the F1 circuit.
If you know of any great hotels that we’ve missed, be sure to let us know in the comments.
If it’s the British Grand Prix, you need a British hotel. And Horwood House is just that – a country house set in 38 acres, but with all the modern luxuries you expect, including a full spa.
It may be a chain, but the Mandarin Oriental offers easy access to the track and so much more – big rooms, some great views (including of the track), impeccable service and great food and drink. What else can you ask for?
Monaco isn’t short of a posh hotel or two, and often so booked up that fans stay in Nice or Cannes. However, if you can – stay at the Hotel de Paris – sheer luxury; a legend of a hotel.
Sheraton Hotels have a great reputation and the Sheraton Subang is no different. It’s close to the circuit, but still offers many ways to relax – not just your great room – as well as a selection of bars and restaurants.
The Middle East is known for high quality in every aspect and hotels are no different. The Ritz Carlton is a name that everyone knows and quality comes as standard – seafront location with squash courts, on site shopping and a beauty centre. Pure pleasure.
For visitors to the Montreal Grand Prix, Opus is undoubtedly the top hotel. Home to Koko restaurant-bar, it offers rest and play under one roof and offers chic Montreal style to a global audience.
A city synonymous with motor racing offers so much to see and do, so there’s no shortage of hotels. Hotel Wilhelmshohe is definitely up there with the best of them – offering delicious food in a hotel filled with Bavarian charm. It’s family run too, which is definitely a plus.
In the country home to Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and more, motor racing is a religion. And they know how to put up the sports fans, too: the AS Hotel Monza offers easy access to the track, great food in its restaurant and comfortable, spacious rooms – all at an affordable price.
The Suzuka Circuit Hotel is, as its name suggests, close to the track. With modern yet traditional Japanese décor – i.e. simple rooms – and a Japanese style spa, the hotel is affordable and just a short walk from the action on the track.
As it’s the first purpose built Grand Prix track, the Circuit of the Americas has great transport links meaning visitors need not worry about their hotel being inaccessible from the circuilt. The Austin Four Seasons, in central Austin, offers sumptuous luxury, whatever your definition of luxury is: good food, pampering, or simply a great night’s sleep.
