An obsession in white hotel rooms

Our obsession with white hotel rooms doesn’t seem to be improving. We now have a board on Pinterest, reflecting just that. Here are some of our favorites.

The Pure, Frankfurt


The Pure has the whitest lobby, reception, bar and restaurant you have ever seen. We went there at Christmas and even the decorations where all white.

La Maison des Champs Elysees, Paris

Decorated by Martin Margiela, the Maison Champs Elysées successfully combines classical and avant-garde styles to create an elegant, relaxing environment. The playful decor, special atmosphere and exceptional service make this a magical place.

Hotel Zenden, Netherlands

The Hotel and Sport School Zenden is located within three monumental town houses near the river Maas in Maastricht, the Netherlands. A recent renovation by Weil Arets Architects has resulted in a space that fully integrates the swimming pool and hotel with the exiting exterior. Upon entering the hotel, a relaxing lounge welcomes guests, and invites them to have a drink, admire the hotel’s pool or simply enjoy the red Japanese maple on the patio that highly contrasts the hotel’s white interior.

Hotel SLS South Beach, Miami

The Philippe Starck-designed Salon at the SLS Hotel South Beach offers blowouts and perfectly manicured fingers and toes, to have you red carpet-ready from head to toe.  The salon gives a personalized experience in a soothing setting. Reminiscent of a celestial dreamscape, guests will feel relaxed and at ease among the warm white tones and billowing curtains throughout the space.
