Luxury shoes, bags, leather goods, fragrances and clothes – often things one considers when upgrading your personal style. When it comes to upgrading your travel experience, we had something a little different in mind. A luxury hotel suite specially designed by the foremost tastemakers in fashion and style. The designer suites within these six hotels exude luxury and will make your stay even more en vogue.
Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg
Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg is a beacon of haute hospitality, beautifully poised between Paris’ Champs-Elysées and fashionable Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The 36 suites feature decadent surrounds envisioned by French interior design legend Didier Gomez, with ivory, gray and black tones complemented by touches of gold, crystal and amethyst. Cornices and armchairs evoke the age of Enlightenment while contemporary decor make it decidedly current. You’ll also find the designer’s signature stamp on the striking glass roof of the lobby, in the restaurant, STAY Faubourg, and in the graphic black chimney of Le Bar du Faubourg as you sip one of the “Couturiers” cocktails.
The St. Regis New York
Showcasing the world-class luxury synonymous with New York City’s Fifth Avenue, The St. Regis New York’s trio of designer suites extend views of the eminent shopping boulevard while placing you in the midst of hallmark style. You’ll recognize the signature robin’s egg-blue walls inside the Tiffany Suite, a jewel box lofted serenely above Central Park created by Tiffany & Co. Design Director Emeritus, John Loring. Uncork a bottle of complimentary Champagne in the Dior Suite, which echoes the eponymous atelier with glamorous touches reminiscent of a Fashion Week runway and a 10-person dining area for entertaining in style. And the Bentley Suite is modeled after the same sleek craftsmanship as its internationally reputed cars, occupying the 15th floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and 24-hour comprehensive butler service.
Hotel Lungarno Florence
At this five-star retreat on the banks of the River Arno in historic Florence, discover Tuscany’s allure personified through its collection of rare works by Picasso and Cocteau and gourmet cuisine at Borgo San Jacopo. This inspiring city is also home to famous shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo’s first boutique. Hotel Lungarno, owned and operated by the Ferragamo family, upholds the designer’s beloved aesthetic. Each of the 14 suites are styled with unique panache, but we especially like the unique Studio Suite Torre, which exposes original brick walls to reveal its 13th-century architectural bones. As a VIP guest, pay a private visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Creations Santa Trinita Boutique, where you can slip on replicas of the heels custom-designed for Audrey Hepburn and Greta Garbo.
Since its inception in 1984, Halekulani has been an oasis on the Hawaiian island of O‘ahu. The 453-room hotel provides crowning views of Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean, living up to its name: “House Befitting Heaven.” A long-standing favorite of celebrities and CEOs alike, the sumptuous surrounds in the Halekulani Suite are the vision of designer Vera Wang, well known for her wedding dresses. Fittingly, romance is the focus of this 2,135-square-foot paradisiacal palace with a private lanai adding 642 additional square feet of outdoor space. As you overlook Waikīkī Beach, share an en suite feast of craft cocktails and lobster served on the finest china, or settle in for a soothing soak in the 16-jet airbath — second only to the indulgent services at Spa Halekulani, voted one of the country’s top spas by Condé Nast Traveler.
Park Hyatt Chicago
Celebrated for beautifully crafted leather goods and handbags, Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta partnered with Park Hyatt Chicago to produce the one-bedroom, two-bathroom Lake Suite — the only collaboration by the brand in North America. Take in shimmering Lake Michigan from the 17th-floor sanctuary, spanning 1,400 square feet and bathed in light and soft neutral tones. You’ll be surrounded by nods of thoughtful craftsmanship, from six-foot-high floor lamps and furnishings produced for the company’s signature line to the cashmere throws and mohair velvet wall coverings hand-picked from the home collection. Peruse the art books in your suite personally selected by Bottega Veneta’s creative director. Should you find one that you’d like to add to your home library, simply have your suite’s on-call personal shopper pick one up from the many shops lining the Magnificent Mile just outside the hotel’s front door.
Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences, London
For those who prefer to ride — and stay — in sleek sensibility, the Jaguar Suite of this 85-room London hotel accounts for every detail. Starting with a gleaming wood-paneled entryway and finishing with a fireplace shaped like the Jaguar’s iconic rear window, the sports car label’s timeless identity is imprinted throughout this 1,832-square-foot haven. Detect design similarities borrowed from roadsters past and present, from dining room chairs reminiscent of the legendary 1960s E-type to bathroom fixtures that replicate the sleek lines of the super-coupe c-x75. It’s obvious that Jaguar’s Design Director Ian Callum took the driver’s seat on this creation, achieving a fine balance of minimalism and softness. A sentiment epitomized by the suite’s leather walls and couches, which recall of the interiors of your chauffer-driven Jaguar on demand during your entire stay.
