In 2009, Britain’s hospitality power couple, Tim and Kit Kemp, brought their super-successful Firmdale formula across the Atlantic with the 11-story, warehouse-style Crosby Street Hotel. Design director Kit Kemp’s signature style—a fresh, contemporary take on classic English decor characterized by a sometimes audacious mix of patterns, bold colors and judiciously chosen antiques—is instantly recognizable. Like its British cousins, Crosby Street has a carefully selected art collection, a guests’ drawing room in addition to its public restaurant and bar, a slick, 100-seat screening room and a verdant garden. The latter inspired the bath products’ exclusive scent, created by cult London perfumer Lyn Harris. Rooms: 86.
