The Highline Hotel in Chelsea

Chelsea continues to become one of the most exciting neighborhoods in Manhattan. Architects like Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry and soon to be Zaha Hadid are just a few that are making their mark on the skyline.  Between the architecture, art galleries, and the Highline, Chelsea is full of inspiration for a designer like me.  I am particularly fond of the Highline Hotel as I frequently venture over to Intelligentsia Coffee for one of the best cups of coffee in the city.  The hotel has also become a hot venue for events like Fashion Week and the Department of Decoration's second gathering.  I love how this hotel caters to tourists but also to the neighborhood.

The Highline Hotel has done a beautiful job at turning this landmark building into a stylish boutique hotel.

I love the eclectic and inviting feel of the hotel which Roman and Williams consulted on.

As I am a huge fan of biking around town, I love these cool bikes parked outside for guests to use.  Of course, they are perfectly styled with the decor of the hotel!

You can grab coffee inside or they have this fully refurbished 1963 Citroen coffee truck parked out front where you can grab n go or stay and enjoy this chic outdoor cafe.
