The Most Interesting Hotels In The World (PHOTOS)

'Tis the season for annual awards lists. Our hotel investigators trot the globe and visit every hotel in person so we can bring you the unvarnished truth, and this year, for the first-ever annual Oyster Hotel Awards, we'd like to show you the wackiest, coolest, weirdest and most interesting things they came across in their travels.

We are thrilled to present the 2012 selection of Oyster's Most Interesting Hotels in the World. These properties may be graceful or strange, eccentric or singular, but not one of them is just one thing. Each has a lot to recommend it and a great deal to offer its sometimes confused clientele.
