I just stayed at The Surrey Hotel.
I was only there for one night, but I walked away feeling that this may be the most beautifully designed hotel I've ever experienced. It wasn't just the room that made me go "oo", or the rooftop (pic 3)... or the lotion (I have no idea where they have it made, but my skin looooves it), but the MODERN ARTWORK tucked away in different corners of the lobby.
The hand laid tile work in the lobby feels like an echo of an antique rug, there's video art, one of a kind furniture pieces, and that Kate Moss picture at the end of the hall (1st pic) is actually a TAPESTRY.
Stunning place. Even if you can't stay, just go have dinner, and poke around. Totally worth it. Here's a link:
ps: no, they aren't paying me to tell yout this!
