We've all had that thought while enjoying a particularly wonderful vacation: what if I could live this way year round? While it may seem like a pipe dream, some of the world's most famous hotels are making that very wish a reality for an elite crop of residents lucky enough to call a hotel condominium home. From coast to coast, individuals and families are living in unprecedented luxury, enjoying all the amenities of a vacation in a hotel with the comfort of somewhere they can call home.

The Four Seasons hotel chain has long been revered for its commitment to providing an unrivaled luxury experience to its guests in cities around the globe. To answer the demand of many of its jet-setting clients, the brand has created 30 Park Place, a hybrid hotel and condominium, that provides its residents the ease of a hotel stay with the comfort and security of a private home. Designed by prolific architect Robert A.M. Stern and developed by Silverstein Properties, this mixed-use space appeals to a wide range of potential residents. From the weary traveler who enjoys the convenience of the Four Seasons' 24-hour concierge service after a lengthy business trip, to the trendsetter eager to enjoy the latest in luxury amenities, like the building's 75-foot pool, state-of-the art fitness center, conservatory, and private dining room, the Four Seasons' combined hotel and residence model hits all the marks that make for a perfect home.

30 Park Place isn't the only hotel getting a residential revamp lately - the famed Shore Club in Miami has been rebranded by internationally renowned hotel chain Fasano. The new Fasano Hotel-Residences at Shore Club melds the iconic design of the Shore Club with 67 residences designed by celebrated architect Isay Weinfeld. Weinfeld has expertly transformed the Shore Club into homes that make the most of Florida's abundant natural beauty, offering light-flooded homes boasting ocean views, and outfitted in stunning natural materials, like oak floors and white stone.

Life would be easier if it were more like vacation - and now it can be. As world-class hotels continue to lend their brand (and its accompanying amenities) to full-time residences, the enjoyment you get from spending a night somewhere new can be an everyday feeling right in the comfort of your own home.
