768 5th AveNew York, NY 10019
Suite, Suite Design: Simply classic. No computer-generated faux-jo here. The furniture: genuine antiques. The gold fixtures: Au-thentic. The Plaza's views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue: worth at least a million for every window pane. It's how the one percent of even the one percent live.
Serving Your Area.
Suite, Suite Design: All the rooms are light, brightly sophisticated, and inescapably referential. Just mention the classic music video for "Take On Me" by the Norwegian '80s pop stars A-ha, and you're likely to get a "OMG! That's it!" in reference to the sketched wall designs of the interiors. The SLS Suite (pictured) almost glows like a coloring book yet to be filled in with your own flair.
50 Easton StNantucket, MA 02554
Suite, Suite Design: Bright, beachy and baby-smiling happy. With a sweet, seaside palette and comfy furniture, the quaint One Bedroom Garden Cottages (pictured) feel like life-size dollhouses. They're just so dang cute you can't help but picture little ones and puppies toddling from room to room.
1717 Vine StLos Angeles, CA 90028
Suite, Suite Design: Throughout the hotel a bohemian-chic style and warm, parchment palette (like that of vintage movie poster marquees) evoke a bygone era of Tinseltown. However, modern conveniences, including washer/dryer units and LCDs with DVRs, are stylishly fused into all the suites -- which are so homey the hotel calls them "flats." The coolest touch: Vinyl collections and record players are "standard amenities" in each room.
1301 Ocean AveSanta Monica, CA 90401
Suite, Suite Design: Sexy posh. With a curved spread of windows, the Rock 'n' Roll Suite (pictured) feels like the prow of an oceanliner overlooking the coast, but thankfully without the latch-and-hatch clunk. And yes, the veranda wrapping the entire length of the suite is private. So enjoy a true, carefree sunsplash in the spacious shower.
Bed & Breakfast & Inns
150 E De Vargas StSanta Fe, NM 87501
Suite, Suite Design: Cinematic and gorgeous at nearly every angle. Rich cozy colors, vibrant Southwestern patterns, intricate woodwork, and enveloping mosaics flow through every nook and cranny of the Inn’s suites. The elaborately tiled bathrooms are works of art in their own right.
5532 N Palo Cristi RdParadise Valley, AZ 85253
Suite, Suite Design: The Deluxe Casita's warm palette and rustic style pop against the crisp white walls and ceiling, allowing the focal points of the room -- the king-size bed and the fireplace -- to feel cozy, not heavy or claustrophobic. And the bathrooms have old-style free-standing tubs.
6850 E Main StScottsdale, AZ 85251
Suite, Suite Design: Midcentury lounge. The Terrace Suites (pictured) display the classic airy swank of the '50s and '60s. Eames lounge chairs, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, private patios. One could imagine an era when smoking was still sexy. Many of the property's suites exude the same pop of style.
28500 Overseas HwySummerland Key, FL 33042
Suite, Suite Design: The Pacific-posh decor only adds to the delightful oasis, with four-post beds, chandeliers, slate floors, copper tubs, verandas and private outdoor showers. And to help workaholics untether from their electronics, the rooms intentionally have no televisions, out-calling phones, or clocks -- for additional gorgeous quietude for the ears. A sweet place to host an app-addict intervention? Definitely.
14 The GrnWoodstock, VT 05091
Suite, Suite Design: Fresh and thoughtful, especially in the top floor Tavern Suite (pictured). Attention to quality creates a happy-home atmosphere: bright dormer windows, traditional wainscoting, 1 1/2 marble baths, down bedding, a wood-burning fireplace, and a sitting area arranged to encourage that nearly lost art -- conversation.
377 Greenwich StNew York, NY 10013
Suite, Suite Design: No two rooms in the hotel are alike. But the king of the block is the Greenwich Penthouse Suite (pictured), which has a country charm combining rustic furniture and brick with hand-carved marble tubs and polished fixtures. The towering wall of windows is a Manhattan hotel rarity.
