When one goes on vacation, staying in a beautifully crafted building can add that much more to the experience. Travel + Leisure magazine recently polled seven different judges and listed their ratings of the top design for resorts, hotels and other facilities, according to AOL.com.

The categories for the lodgings were split into two categories - one was for hotels with 100 or more rooms, while the other only had smaller buildings.

At the top of the former category was Abu Dhabi's Yas Hotel, which has 499 rooms. The impressive edifice has two 12-story towers that are layered in LED panels that change colors throughout the day. The towers are connected by a bridge that crosses above a Formula One racetrack.

In the smaller category, the 61-room Pantone Hotel in Brussels, Belgium, won first place. Most of the walls are white, but the floors and rooms are colored in the distinctive, vibrant hues of the internationally recognized Pantone Matching System.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that 21 percent of architects are self-employed and employment is expected to grow faster than the national average, which could compel many to pursue design degrees in the near future.
