March 21, 2012— -- intro: Truth be told, the places celebrities vacation are pretty similar to the places everyone else goes on vacation. Recently, celebs have been spotted in Cancun, the number-one international destination for Americans traveling by air; Miami, always in the top five for domestic locales; Hawaii, a top honeymoon destination for Americans and on a vacation close to home in Los Angeles. Sure, they're likely staying in more luxurious digs when they're there, but anyone can book rooms at the resorts celebs frequent.

A likely contender is Soho Beach House. The blue-and-white towels on Blige's beach chair look identical to those at the 50-room hotel that bills itself as a "private members club, hotel and spa," but anyone can book a room on their web site.
A stay at Soho Beach House over a weekend in mid-May will set you back about $435 per night plus tax for a bayside room.
