PUBLIC HOTELS - LUXURY FOR ALL
Opened in June on the Lower East Side, Public Hotels aims to make luxury available to all thanks to Ian Schrager. The hotel is - as it says - "refined, sophisticated, smart and simple, yet flamboyant and provocative, all at the same time." The universally appealing guest rooms are thoughtfully designed, down to every last finish and detail, with distinct zones for sleeping, relaxing, working and entertaining. There has been seamless, frictionless technology integrated so everything one needs is within arm’s reach. The building was designed by Swiss architecture studio Herzog & De Meuron, that certainly implies luxury. The neon-lit escalators quickly became the new treasures of Instagram and the tangerine-feel lights the obsession of many Instagrammers. Will it become yours?
Hotel Bienvenue Paris
It does not matter whether it's raining or there is constant sunshine, Paris is just charming, we can agree on that. So as it's booming boutique hotel scene. In the 9th district you will find the intimate and highly coveted hotel called Hotel Bienveue, which is the freshest project of Adrien Gloaguen (Hôtel Paradis and Hôtel Panache). The place is just the perfect nest for design-savvy travelers with crave for modern aesthetics and comfort. Amongst other things an outdoor terrace - which was our favourite spot in the hotel other than our room's window facing a huge gothic rose window tracery - for eating, drinking and relaxing provides your serenity during your stay. The hotel's location is ideal too; close to both the La Palais Royal and the Sacré-Cœur. So if you were wondering where to stay in Paris whether it is the Maison & Objet or the Fashion Week, we would highly recommend Hotel Bienvenue.

Scandinavian Hotel in NYC: 11 Howard
Wondering where to stay in New York while enjoying a chic Scandinavian surrounding and supporting a good cause? We might have the ultimate choice for you. Nordic minimalism, comfort, laidback elegance are the words that well describe one of our favourite “temporary homes” in New York. The most striking thing about the hotel is though their consciousness in every aspect of their business. 11 Howard lives up to its motto “conscious hospitality”. The hotel donates a portion of its revenue from each stay to the Global Poverty Project: a non-profit aimed at reducing extreme poverty. Other than the design-focus, being conscious in terms of traveling is the point where Local’s Lore and 11 Howard’s vision met.
