A room at Belgraves in London

To belong to the Thompson Hotels group is to be ensured a ranking on hot lists around the world. But we love this property despite that! We've dubbed its style contemporary-cozy, due to design details that remind us of a cross between a beloved ski cabin and a 1970s rec room. This description may seem to defy good taste, but the result is quite refined — sexy, even — thanks to designer Tara Bernerd, whose inventive hand can be seen from the metal-beaded curtains that separate bedrooms and bathrooms to the bespoke furnishings in the bar. As for said bar, it features a humidor with vintage Cuban cigars, live jazz and a terrace for al fresco drinks under the stars. Last but by no means least is Pont St, the house restaurant that highlights artisan purveyors and an enviable location in the upscale Belgravia neighborhood.
