Here are photos of my “Luxury King” guest room on the 13th floor.
With a bright welcome by my personal fuchsia penguin, I walked into an impressive, comfortable guest room with a view. It is a luxurious appointed space with a plush rug, inviting bed, and cozy sitting area.
The bed headwall is upholstered with a large reeded gold fabric panel flanked by mirrors and built-in night stands- it sounds gaudy, but is actually quite sophisticated.
The gloss black wall tile and original terrazzo floors in the bathroom, the golden tan drapery, and the warm light grey finishes mimic the art deco heritage and limestone walls of the historic building. The winter white cylindrical bar cabinet has a subtle presence in the room – until you open the curved doors. Inside a bold orange finish reminds you that this is a modern adaptive reuse of the old bank building by a hospitality group insisting on having fun. But then I already knew that by the flock of 4′ tall plastic fuchsia penguins that occupy the building.
