Art+Design hotels are usually done on thin budgets. I can’t think of any done particularly well, though I liked the bar Julian Schnabel did for the Gramercy Park Hotel in NY. I love the Hotel Splendido in Portofino, and I’m a fan of the Ritz in Paris, but I’m totally over the Costes. I guess I like old hotels like the Pellicano in Porto Ercole. I don’t like the Aman style, it’s aged badly. Though I’ve never stayed in the Swiss spa done by Peter Zumthor, the Hotel Therme Vals, perhaps that would change my mind.
