CHICAGO -- Looking to spot A-List celebrities on your summer vacation? Orbitz and OK! Magazine are excited to reveal the world's 10 most exclusive celebrity hotels where stars like Katy Perry, Ashton Kutcher, and Justin Bieber escape for the ultimate in luxurious vacations. For those just as happy to party like rock stars, Orbitz also is sharing the inside scoop on 10 affordable, alternate hotels, each offering red-carpet bang and swanky amenities for up to 66% less.


"Every traveler wants to experience a little VIP luxury on vacation, no matter their budget," says Orbitz Insider Jeanenne Tornatore. "It's great to show consumers that a high-end, celebrity-like getaway is within reach, even on a budget."

Take New York, for example: at $343.65 per night, the 5-star Hotel Gansevoort beckons the likes of Russell Brand, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen to its incredible 260-degree rooftop bar; but guests at the more budget-friendly Ace Hotel will also enjoy the sights and sounds of a hopping lobby and bar for less at $215.75 per night.

Travelers seeking the sun and the stars will find the best of both at the 5-star Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, where Zoe Saldana and Jessica Biel recently enjoyed private terraces and plunge pools from their own lavish suites. But guests on a budget will be quite happy – and will spend almost 55% less – at the more affordable ME by Melia, a 4-star hotel featuring private poolside cabanas and the world-famous Nikki beach.

"OK! Magazine loves giving its readers a glimpse into the lives of the stars," says OK! Magazine's Features Editor, Eloise Parker. "The great thing about this particular collaboration with Orbitz is that we're showing them both the fabulous and the affordable."
