go hotels go!


it's funny or perhaps serendipitous, but i had read an article on some more hotels that had followed the artist designed rooms idea like hotel fox in denmark but here in canada in the april 2006 elle canada magazine and was just about going to post it, when my friend alex emails me and says she thinks i should check out hotel fox. she said she thought room 414 would suit me perfectly.

so two new hotels to be added to this list are in toronto, the gladstone hotel transformed by local talent. my favorites being 304 and i think i would have the best rest in 411.

and the dominion hotel in vancouver designed by emily carr institute of art and design grads along with street artists. liking rooms 116 and 207

and apparantly there is one in berlin too called kuenstlerheim-luise (above photo). rooms 300 and 304 are my favorites.

and alex if you're reading this, i think i would reserve room 509 for you (at the fox)!

and everyone else reading this, indulge me please, i'd love to know your faves!
