Tim & Kit Kemp, owners of London-based Firmdale Hotels, have brought to New York’s Soho their trademark quirky and quintessentially English sense of style and long standing reputation for the world class personal service.
Designed with wit
The elegant, chic yet cosy Crosby Street Hotel radiates freshness and modernity, emphasized by feminine textures, witty art and playful imagery.
Every corner contains commissioned art—like a 10ft metal head artwork by Jaume Plensa or life-size cartoon-mâché dog sculptures from Justine Smith, alongside touchy-feely textures and furnishings personally sourced by Kemp.
It’s a hot-and-happening place, often the choice for creatives and trendies. The former guests include Meg Ryan, Nicole Richie and J-Lo.
Trendy boutique hotel
The Drawing Room is a sumptuous and colorful residents lounge with fireplaces and deep sofas, but the most striking is the hotels lobby, light and bright with soaring glass windows opening onto a lovely courtyard garden.
The Crosby Bar is the heart of the hotel, serving mainly modern New York brasserie fare, in an ultra-stylish space consisting of sky high windows and doors, warm colors, grey oak wood flooring and a long pewter bar.
A feature that has the hotel standing out from the crowd is the a private cinema, a space with 99 orange leather Poltrona Frau chairs and walls padded in violet wool.
Rooms with a personal style
Crosby Street Hotel’s 86 individually designed rooms and suites are a clever mix of modern and vintage styling, each featuring huge, floor-to-ceiling windows—a rarity in New York City.
Each boudoir comes with flat-screen LCD TVs, DVD and CD players, iPod docking stations, Wi-Fi and fully stocked minibars. Baths are executed in a light gray granite, oak and glass, and are outfitted with rain showers or oversized tubs.
The Crosby Street Hotel in New York City is a member of Design Hotels™.
