el mundo reports that letizia, leonor and sofia stayed at the hotel Ciragan Kempinski, when they visited istanbul at the start of august 2015. they were going to go on a cruise to visit the bosphorus and the greek islands with felipe when he arrived from palma, but following the attacks in istanbul (and possibly that they were spotted by the paparazzi at the airport), they decided to change the holiday plans and head to italy.

When King Edward VII, as Prince of Wales, ate too much, as he frequently did, he would head to the spa town of Baden Baden to take the waters. He often stayed at the Brenners Park hotel there.

Wallis Simpson grew up in genteel poverty. For part of her childhood she and her mother stayed at a lodging house called Brexton's in Baltimore. It's now a boutique hotel with a Wallis Simpson suite.

hola claims that william and kate stayed for holiday at Hotel du Palais, in Biarritz, france for their summer holidays. the hotel is a beautiful 5 stars. we don't know what room they chose, but it is quite possible that they were hosted at one of the royal suites.
the hotel has royal connections too: Napoleon II and Eugenie de Montijo vacationed there. it has beautiful french period furniture in their rooms.

the hotel choice is odd, considering the hotel is right in town, but hola usually seems to have good information.

according to hola, CP and sofia with alexander have holidayed in barcelona and stayed at the exclusive W hotel.

Quote:
This year will be the first time that Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden take a summer holiday as a family of three with baby Alexander. With the sun, good atmosphere, tranquility and anonymity, the couple set sail for Barcelona (pictured) in July, for their first getaway of the season. According to the Swedish press the family stayed in the exclusive W hotel, located on the beachfront along the Barceloneta promenade.

This isn’t the first time that the couple have visited Spain, for several years the pair traveled to Ibiza with friends to take advantage of the beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and world-famous nightlife.

william and kate chose a very standard hotel at whitehorse, yukon, during their official trip. the town is fairly small so i guess choice of hotels was somewhat limited. they went for the coast hotels high country inn. they stayed at the presidential suite which has been remodeled recently.

felipe and letizia have visited fiji during their honeymoon. according to the Fiji Times they spent a week at a very exclusive and private club in Fiji, at the The Wakaya Club.

according to this article, king juan carlos asked his friend Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein to arrange the May 2004 honeymoon trip of Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia to Jordan, Thailand, and Fiji.

this article from a blog also mentions they stayed at wakaya (and came back in 2012 with their daughters)

It is very surprising that they managed to keep it quiet, not only the honeymoon, but especially the come-back trip in 2012!

definitely, although the name of the hotel (and the destination) of their honeymoon was publicized shortly after (or even during) their honeymoon, shortly after they left the hotel, i believe. their honeymoon seemed to be a tour of many destinations in a row so as soon as they left one, the press seemed to find out about them. not sure how many of them are actually genuine destinations they visited. the list seemed way too long for the period they took for their honeymoon (approximately 1 month, with visits in spain at the start, a break in jordan to attend the wedding of the heir (plus some private visits to petra), plus a private part of the honeymoon visiting many exotic destinations like thailand, fiji and india).

anyway, they clearly liked it as they came back with the girls after. i assume they must favour this sort of secluded destinations to get some privacy.

indeed, after looking it up it seems that the list of honeymoon destinations for felipe and letizia is anything but short:

'The rumor has led them, in a first stage, to Oman and, simultaneously, to Mexico. It is not likely, however, that they visit the Aztec country. Yes they have collected testimonies of their departure to Thailand, where, apparently, they enjoyed the wonders of the island paradise of Koh Muk. The couple, supposedly, stayed at Thumarin Thana Hotel, situated in the city of Trang. India would have been another place on the itinerary, from where they would set out for China. Precisely in that flight was where, apparently, a little discreet commander did the most unsuspected task when he welcomed from the public address to the illustrious passengers.'

it seems like a very long list of destinations but the press reporting it are fairly official and serious press. this book also includes an account of their honey moon, which just includes oman, china, thailand, india and fiji. it mentions they did travel in mexico, but that was in july after they had been to the country on official business. they were lent the presidential plane to visit monterrey, visited basilica de guadalupe and even stayed in the presidential residence.

https://books.google.com/books?id=mi...0india&f=false

some other outlets even mention hawaii:

Descubra el paraíso donde los Príncipes de Asturias pasaron su verdadera luna de miel

it is interesting as the Thumarin Thana Hotel is a small hotel, unlike the wakaya. there's not many hotels in the area so i guess they took the best one they could find. i wonder what exactly appealed to them about the area, which isn't amongst the most touristy:
