Hop on the High Line

The latest creation from André Balazs is a New York branch of his modish Standard hotels. Rising from one of the city’s most sought-after sites, in the heart of the Meatpacking District, two glass-curtain slabs literally jump the tracks of the High Line, the old freight railroad that’s been transformed into a park on stilts. The design spans—and expands on—a century of modern architecture.

Shangri-La Paris Room 701 with a view

When Prince Roland Bonaparte, Napoleon's grand-nephew, moved into the elegant limestone mansion in Paris's fashionable Chaillot district in 1896, the French were obsessed with Asia. The Musée Guimet had just opened up the block with one of the world's great Asian art collections, Laos had been absorbed into the thriving French colony of Indochine, and a group of avant-garde Parisian painters known as the Impressionists were drawing inspiration from Japanese prints. Roughly a century later, Asian hoteliers are returning the compliment, making the City of Light a beachhead in their European expansion.

Park Life in India

India’s first LEED Gold certified hotel is redefining luxury for a new generation.

Home to some of the world’s top hotels, India has long interpreted luxury as opulent and regal — think gilded converted palaces, white glove service, and lots of Raj-era touches. But with the emergence of a young, vibrant middle class with modern tastes and money to burn, the hallmarks of luxury are now changing. Enter The Park Hotels, a family-run group of eight properties with contemporary style (five outposts are Design Hotels members), innovative cuisine and buzz-worthy nightlife that’s redefining India’s hotel landscape.
