Description

Hotel as Home

Architect and photographer Gary Chang has a strange obsession: he absolutely loves hotels. It's a good thing, as he spends about 120 days a year traveling all over the world. Chang has become something of a hotel expert, but meeting his exacting standards for a suitable home away from home isn't easy. He doesn't stay at just any hotel. He plans his trips with exhaustive research on the hotels of his destination and even stays at several different ones during the same trip to one city. His favorite hotels are those places that have a certain special quality, ranging from New York's kitschy Maritime to Budapest's classic Gellert to Zurich's brand-spanking new Zurichberg. Chang's most-loved finds are documented in beautiful photographs, his hand drawn floor plans, and personal texts in Hotel as Home. He presents thirty-five hotels from around the world in this wonderfully atmospheric bookfrom the Hotel 101 in Reykjavik to the Hotel Le Corbusier in Marseilles, the Soho House Hotel in New York, the W Hotel in Sydney, the Four Seasons in Tokyo, and the Hotel Metropolitan in Bangkok. Whether it's the all-white design of Starck's Hotel Delano in Miami, the Art Deco brass beds and chandeliers in the rooms of Istanbul's Pera Palaca Hotel, or the Zen atmosphere of London's Hotel Hempel, there's something to love in all of the hotels shown here. This a must-have for business class road warriors and all travelers in search of a unique, memorable, and rejuvenating hotel experience.
