The popularity of boutique hotels has compelled large hotel chains like JW Marriott to create bespoke hotels of high design in cities across America. These design-forward hotels not only offer great stays when traveling, but their interior design also provides a wealth of ideas for luxury homeowners looking for design inspiration.
Lido House one of the Autograph Collection Hotels
This Newport Beach, California hotel aims to be the boutique choice for business travelers with taste. It stands among the some of the beach’s most storied architecture.
The Autograph Collection Hotels by Marriott Bonvoy handpick boutique hotels across the country that are examples of fine design and distinctive character. It’s a perfect match. Marriott’s commitment to preserving these architectural design icons provides boutique hotels with the secure backing of a global brand while ensuring guests get the experience of staying in hotels that reflect the uniqueness of their locations.
Being in a beach community, Lido House is a chic upmarket hotel with coastal vibes. People who own California beach homes would do well to check out the Lido’s design. From the nautical blue and white stripes to the seafoam accent pillows, the Lido is an ocean lover’s haven.
The Lido rooms are lined with smooth shiplap walls with antique brass sconces. From inside, a guest could easily mistake their bedroom for the Queen’s cabin on a luxury cruise.
Q&C Hotel/Bar in the French Quarter, New Orleans
This is another Autograph Collection hotel, but one easily missed among the historic buildings of the French Quarter. However, this charming interior suits the soul of the city it calls home.
Exposed brick walls, refinished wood floors, and creative cabinetry will make any person staying at the Q&C that they have entered the hallowed halls of an exclusive private club.
One design idea to steal is to balance a metal and brick industrial look with one accent wall of classically-patterned wallpaper.
Le Bristol Paris, part of the Oetker Collection Hotels
Located only a six-minute walk from the Champ-Elysees, the Le Bristol Paris is a perfect example of classic sophistication. From the antique white rooms with warm gray accents to the stately symmetry and fruit trees in the lobby, this beautiful hotel manages to be fit for royalty without trying too hard.
Oriental rugs and tapestries break up the swaths of polished marble leading up a curving staircase or down a wide hall. There’s just enough golden bronze to make rooms shine without seeming gilded.
For anyone looking to create a sense of timeless wealth in their home should borrow heavily from Le Bristol.
Noelle in Nashville is An Experiential Hotel That Has Fun
