Imagine stepping through a glass revolving door and coming face to face with Basquiats, Hirsts, Warhols and other stunning examples of 20th-century art. Or handpicking fresh herbs with a chef in a transformed 14th-century estate in the Austrian Alps. Or entering a hotel to discover that you have actually stepped into a local gathering place for a city’s young, creative community, and by doing so you’ve instantly become a part of the local scene, connected to all the insider hot spots.
Design Hotels™ embraces properties that are crafted with the purpose of creating original experiences and unexpected moments that provide lasting memories. It pursues hotels that celebrate the great human need to represent life in an authentic, one-of-a-kind way. To do this, Design Hotels'™ properties are deeply involved in the local scenes and serve as focal points for entire neighborhoods. They are not just places to stay. They are gateways to communities. But much more, they are created by hoteliers who are at heart artisans whose vision, art and hospitality provide their guests with meaningful experiences.
