From the flower planters to the bedroom pillows, MyHotel Chelsea brims with warm shades of pink. Architect James Soane of Project Orange reinvigorated this space with the color, turning a former Victorian-era police station into a modern hotel. Besides the recurrent pink accents, the 45 rooms and suites have amenities like a night safe and heated towl rails. Even the twin-bed single rooms have standard amenities, despite their compact size. The hotel's plant-filled library is suited to quiet reading, and the tapas bar Three5 serves international comfort foods like Spanish paella, fish and chips, and Cajun tuna.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
