Designers Tapped for Montage Beverly Hills and Hotel Hugo

Montage Beverly Hills unveiled the design details of its Suite 100, which underwent renovations as part of Beverly Hills’ 2014 Centennial celebration. In recognition of the event, five of the city’s luxury hotels are redecorating one of their suites to reflect a particular decade.                                      

Suite 100 at Montage Beverly Hills captures the spirit of 1940s film noir. Led by locally based designer Nina Petronzio, the design has vintage details such as a historic phonograph, big band vinyl records and a collection of 1940s literature, games, movies, music, drinks and edibles.

Over in New York, Hotel Hugo is readying for its winter debut, and will be disgned by Marcello Pozzi. The property will have 122 guestrooms, including two top floor suites and a rooftop cocktail lounge with 360 degree city views. The hotel will also include an Italian restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating by restaurateur Sean Largotta of Crown Group Hospitality. The property is inspired by the tradition of downtown New York as a mecca for artists, thinkers and the avant-garde.

The entrance of the 20-story hotel will have a 17-foot glass façade leading into the main lobby with floor-to-ceiling travertine walls and blue marble flooring. Vertical gardens will be positioned throughout the hotel’s ground floor, starting with a horticultural structure behind the check-in desk to custom indoor foliage in the restaurant.

Each of Hotel Hugo’s 122 rooms will create a residential feel with views of the Hudson River and downtown skyline, expansive closet space and luxury amenities including 300 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, custom made Italian furnishings and Côté Bastide Argan body care products. Hotel Hugo’s top floor suites will include a separate desk and vanity area within the backdrop of river views. Each suite will connect to an adjoining king room, allowing for one or two bedroom accommodations, ideal for single or multi family stays.

Located on Hotel Hugo’s ground floor, the restaurant will offer Italian comfort food featuring handmade pastas as well as a selection of shared small plates and fresh seafood dishes. The restaurant capacity is 110 and the private dining room can seat up to 24 people.
