A hotel is more than a place to rest your weary head after a long day of business meetings, cultural exploration or shopping. For visitors with discerning tastes, the choice of where to stay is not just about function and convenience but the desire for an experience filled with beauty, comfort and pleasant surprises. Fortunately, there are many exceptional accommodations throughout the City that offer superior hospitality along with elevated design sensibilities for a range of budgets. Look no further than The Design Collection for a selection of properties that go above and beyond the standard fare—where the delight is in the details. From the macro—rare works of art, breathtaking views, rooftop pools—to the micro—gorgeous typography, masterful lighting, pampering products—each of these hotels has something unique to offer.
