When this 1964-founded hotel underwent complete renovation in the 2000s, The Residence saw a spectacular redesign, too. New York designer Tony Chi and associate William Paley injected sophisticated style and their appreciation of French craftsmanship into the sprawling two-bedroom space, with blue doors inspired by the Palace of Versailles leading through to a grand salon, library and gallery. A massage room, hamman, fitness room and sauna are in the suite’s east and west wings. The kitchen comes with John Pawson Demeyere cookware, and the bar has accessories by Ralph Lauren. Carefully selected furnishings include pieces from the George Smith ottoman collection, Meridiani, Minotti and Philippe Hurel. From its position on the hotel’s top floor, The Residence offers 360-degree views over the city.
