Unruffled elegance and sophistication are the key elements to "cool hotels". Our sense of luxury and our expectations have become ever more heightened during our hours of leisure. We are aware of our everyday environments and strive to refine our living spaces aided by the relentless pouring of the media. The world is all about creating our own environment. What choice must we exercise when deciding to get away and paying to stay in a showcase for contemporary talent? Hotels are the platforms for professionals to show us how it should really be done and how interiors can be fantastical, mystical, out of this world, grand, minimal, ecological and arty. There is a hotel for every mood, for every interest, for every hobby in every country - all vying to provide us with the ultimate experience. This work is a spotter's guide to the biggest and best. A new kind of tourism has begun. A new directory is born. Whilst in London visit My Hotel, The Hempel, St Martins Lane Hotel and Sanderson Hotel. Cool Hotels covers hotel destinations in: North and South America, Australasia, Europe and Asia. No project is older than 10 years.

I read someone review this book as "a bad imitation and poor copy of Hip Hotels". I m a big fan of Hip Hotels I have religiously bought every single copy of them since they publish in 1999, I think you can never compare both of them together, as they both have market themselves differently. Hip Hotels got more text as Cool Hotels got more picture.
I am a hospitality designer so reference book related to hotel is very important to me. As I traveled a lot to different country to work, book size is a must considered factor. When I got Cool Hotels I look at it and thinking it is really a small and handy little book, and the content itself got a really good selection of hotel, nice picture and text is just mainly minimum information of where the hotel and who do that�Eand that's good enough for me. Now after 2 week owning it, it had been my design inspiration bible.
If the publisher decided to publish a follow up copy for trendier hotel that miss out from this copy, I will definitely get them for my own traveling library..
I find it also an excellent reference for getting cool ideas for your own house !
