The 'Design Collection' Kicks Off In New York Next Month
Staying at a classy hotel isn't just something you do at the end of the day, after visiting all the local museums and art galleries—rather, the hotel itself can be part of your cultural experience. At least, that's the logic behind a new promotion happening in NYC next month known as "Design Collection."
Targeting stylish hotels around Manhattan, the program seeks out tourists "with discerning tastes," who will most appreciate design details like The James' cantilevered Sky Lobby (pictured), or The Dream's light-box art installations, or Le Parker Meridien's original Damien Hirst painting.
Better yet, in addition to recommending hotels, the Design Collection also offers exclusive discounts and deals at the Skyscraper Museum, 92YTribeca, and the Museum of Arts and Design.

The Design Collection promotion runs from January 2 to February 28—right around NYC's slowest tourism period. And if that line sounds familiar, you're right: the promotion overlaps with another hotel-centric initiative known as Hotel Week, which also takes place in January, and as we've explained before, doesn't actually have anything to do with NYC & Co, the city's official tourism organization and the force behind Design Collection.
In fact, we see this as a bit of retaliation on the part of NYC & Co, who—we're guessing—was none too pleased about the inauguration of Hotel Week, and felt the need to devise a citywide hotel program of their very own. Not that it really matters to us, or you. At the end of the day, a hotel deal is a hotel deal! Head on over to NYC & Co's website to check out the full list of participating hotels.
