The pool-side suite (shown above) comes with king size bed, hot tub and black-out blinds for the floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a secluded entrance to the communal garden. The hotel prides itself on its hip location as well as its design credentials and you’ll spot pieces here by designers such as Florence Knoll, George Nelson and Eliel Saarine.
100 King St, Manchester
Below There’s a whiff of the sophisticated gentleman’s private club about the suites at this Manchester five-star hotel which is set in a grand, Art Deco building originally designed by Edwin Lutyens. Decadent, with brass and leather fittings, dark walls, leather bed heads, monochrome carpets and 1930s-style photographs, the hotel also aims to be ‘the sexiest in Europe’. There are double showers, baths in many rooms and some suites even have leather-clad walls.
Central Park, New York
City bedrooms don’t get much more classically old-school chic than at the uptown Viceroy Central Park hotel in New York. A lesson in cosy small-space cool, beds, wardrobes and bedside tables merge into a cosy and luxurious cocoon of rich wooden furnishings, soft leather finishes and quality linens, and all with the most quintessential city skyline views possible. A whiskey brown colour palette for floors and walls keeps the whole look unified.
Beau Street, Bath
If your design style is more classic than contemporary, you’ll certainly appreciate the newly refurbished Gainsborough in Bath. Grand 16 feet tall windows with floor-to-ceiling curtains, squishy sofas and sumptuous two poster beds are just the starting point here. There are headboards in toile depicting pastoral scenes, alcove roll top bath tubs with traditional plumbing fixtures and elegant lighting in sculptural and industrial shapes. Warm wood, fine linens and marble bathrooms complete the feel of cosy luxury.
The Nomad Hotel
Flatiron District, New York
When acclaimed architect Jacques Garcia dreamt up the revamp of this hotel in a then unfashionable end of Broadway, New York, he used the Parisian apartment where he had grown up as the basis of his design. White walls, eclectic artwork and reclaimed maple wood floors are the result in this Beaux Arts boutique bolthole, which brings some Parisian chic to the centre of the city. There’s also a feel of Broadway’s Golden Age in the lavishness here – bathrooms feature claw foot tubs and elegant freestanding vanity units.
