Hip Hotels: City was the very first book to address a whole new travel phenomenon: hotels of such sheer style and individuality that they have redefined the travel experience. Through innovative architecture, outstanding design, and world-class cuisine, Hip Hotels have become destinations in their own right. But the book did not just identify a trend, it has led it. This revised edition reflects that, introducing ten stunning new hotels. They include Blakes in Amsterdam, Anouska Hempel's latest venture, which brings her Asian-inflected minimalism to a superb piece of Dutch Golden Age architecture. In London there is One Aldwych, one of the finest examples of the new contemporary luxury that is fast turning the traditional grand hotel into a museum piece.
