The Quin Hotel

The Quin Hotel, which in November 2013, is a peaceful retreat alongside Central Park. In another life, The Quin Hotel was known as The Buckingham hotel. Opened in 1929, the Buckingham's location near many theaters made it extremely popular with artists visiting and performing in New York City.

In honor of the artists, The Quin Hotel has the Paderewski and O’Keeffe Specialty Suites.

Did You Know? No.11 Cadogan Gardens

January 6, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

No 11 Cadogan Gardens

Originally four separate Victorian townhouses, No.11 Cadogan Gardens was built by Lord Chelsea in
the late 19th Century. The desirable Knightsbridge location and elegant design of the hotel meant it
became a home away from home for Victorian aristocrats, politicians, and celebrities. At the time, the
borough had a reputation for being London’s bohemian quarter, and was the haunt of radicals, artists,
and poets. A portrait of Hans Sloane, the namesake of Sloane Square, hangs at the foot of the grand staircase.

The Four Seasons Hotel Milano Debuts Renovated Royal and Fashion Suites

January 3, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

Got a flair for fashion? Want to feel like royalty? Here are two updated suites that should fit the bill: The Four Seasons Hotel Milano recently renovated its Fashion and Royal Suites, and we think they're worth a peek. (Click on images to view larger versions).

The Four Seasons Hotel Milano Royal Suite in Milan

Interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon (who also redesigned hotels like the Goring and the Savoy in London) recreated the spaces, both located in the Hotel's casa ringhiera wing and arranged around open balconies that overlook a glass-covered atrium.

The Four Seasons Hotel Milano Fashion Suite in MilanAs the Hotel's top accommodation, the Royal Suite occupies the entire fifth floor of Four Seasons Hotel Milano. Rochon gave the space a home-like atmosphere by adding a library and using different styles of furniture- "like people do in private apartments," Rochon said.

A white leather partition divides the bedroom area from the lounge space. The bed is now positioned to face the suite's step-out balcony (top views across the rooftops of Milan, we hear). The suite's sitting and reading room has a fireplace that overlooks a private terrace and garden manicured with iconic Mediterranean plants. The kitchenette is equipped with temperature-controlled wine refrigerators and modern tools for preparing meals. The Four Seasons Hotel Milano Royal Suite in MilanAccessible by a dedicated elevator, the Royal Suite can be connected via a private internal staircase to a Premium Room and an Executive Suite on the floor below to become either a two- or three-bedroom residence.

With a decidedly contemporary look, the Fashion Suite (Suite 444) on the fourth floor of the Hotel evokes the 1950s and 60s with furniture pieces by Saarinen and a color scheme of bright kelly green with black and white accents.

The suite has a long terrace bordered with hedges and a Knoll table and chairs fitted with cushions for a relaxing afternoon in the fresh air.

Both the Royal Suite and the Fashion Suite were restyled as part of the Hotel's ongoing room refurbishment project.

A dramatically reborn 15th-century convent with a mere 118 rooms and suites, the intimate Four Seasons is steps from Milan's couture houses and financial district on the exclusive Via Gesu between Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga.
