We could simply point out the stellar location of Crosby Street Hotel, but what makes this boutique property different from other hotels is its individuality. Aside from its location in the heart of New York’s Soho shopping district, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel offers a plethora of personality. Co-owner Kit Kemp individually designed every guestroom, with no two rooms alike. Kemp’s unique eye for design focuses on whimsy and color, with a nod to the hotel’s elegant British roots in such details as the metal room keys and vintage books lining the back wall of the reception desk. Kemp personally selects most of Crosby Street Hotel’s modern and vibrant artwork, from the dog collages to the striking sculptures in the lobby. As well, the hotel is gold LEED-certified and features a rooftop kitchen garden.
