BEST HOTEL UPPER MIDSCALE
FINALIST

KIMPTON AERTSON HOTEL

Genger worked with the building team to develop
an ombre rope reception desk.

THE DESIGN FIRM: Gensler, Houston

THE MESSAGE: Prioritize. Here, art and history
with industrial-meets-organic design embodies the
authenticity of Nashville.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

THE MUSE: Pay homage to the neighboring university's namesake, Cornelius Vanderbilt, by blending artisanal elements such as the guestrooms' welded frame
headboards, leather stitching and the buckle straps on
the bathroom mirrors to reflect the family's pioneering
spirit with bespoke details and commissioned art that
speak to the legacy of this business magnate.
THE MAGIC: Make art the star, not an afterthought. That meant sourcing and curating works
before the shovels hit dirt. Case in point: Before
concluding design-development, sculptor Orly

FINALIST

KIMPTON SAINT GEORGE HOTEL
TORONTO

THE MUSE: Home is where the heart
is. Give travelers the sense of staying
in their own well-appointed apartment, making sure they don't forget
they're in Toronto.
THE MAVERICK MOVE: Apartments aren't just about the bedroom.
Here, the reception area welcomes
guests "home" with a marble desk

framed with wooden arches, backdropped by a hand-painted mural of
a misty Toronto-inspired scene. Adjacent to reception is a guest lounge,
designed to feel like a living room.
THE MESSAGE: Custom doesn't

always have to be over the top.
A collection of bespoke furniture, artwork, lighting and objets
d'art, many crafted by local makers,
continue to tell the story of local
culture and design.

FINALIST

CLARIDGE HOUSE
CHICAGO

THE DESIGN FIRM: The Gettys Group, Chicago
THE MUSE: Take a property rooted in the
1920s full circle and return to the hotel's
original name. Initially designed by Chicago
architect Walter Ahlschlager, the initials
"CH" and the Claridge name are inscribed on
the exterior.
THE MAVERICK MOVE: "House" is in the
hotel's name for a reason. To exude a home-like
feel, custom millwork anchors the lobby with
an elevated linear fireplace wrapped in marble

and flanked in blonde oak. Hanging overhead,
a chandelier comprised of silk-wrapped rings
nods to the "coming full circle" inspiration.
THE MESSAGE: Put some personality into
it. An art installation features travel photos
from trips taken around the world by the
project team and the hotel's team members.
