Let’s face it, when we are on vacation we tend to have an eagle eye out for anything that might make for an absolutely stunning Instagram photo. In regards to hotels, Instagramming has become just as important as eating, sleeping, and relaxing.
Even though there are many accounts for travelers to follow for travel tips, Instagram itself is a big part of travel. We often choose our next destination and hotel based on reviews on social media. In terms of Instagram popularity, some hotels are much more popular than others, while others lack the Instagram factor.
Here Live Enhanced explores a list of the best Instagrammable hotels in the world, properties that will leave a lasting impression with your friends or social media audience, whether it be because of unique views, awe-inspiring pools, or stunning architecture.
