The ever-fashionable New York City has received an upgrade to its accomodations offerings. Windham, known for luxurious resort hotels in Las Vegas and other urban and tourist-centric areas, recently opened its Fashion26 hotel in the chic Chelsea district.

The hotel features 22 stories of glass and steel, and the tower is replete with an “art program” which will feature a rotation of sure-to-be-fashion-iconic exhibits. The program will feature photorgraphy from teh neighboring Fashion INstitute of Technology’s students.
Glen Coben, designer, fashioned the lobby’s receiption desk after the type of cutting-room table one would see in a fashion design house.
It goes without saying that the staff uniforms have to be up to stylistic snuff as well. Drab colors and bulky cuts were poo-pooed in favor of merino wool knits from leading designers and Kangol knit hats for the doormen.

“Fashion 26 – A Wyndham Hotel makes an exciting statement about architectural imagination, refined service and unique amenities in one of the city’s most vital and vibrant neighborhoods,” said  Wyndham Hotels and Resorts President Jeff Wagoner.

The chic perks don’t stop in the lobby. The hotel has designed amenities to please the most exacting fashionista’s pallete, including cupcakes from an upscale neighborhood bakery, free wi-fi, luxurious Frette linens and terrycloth towels.

Rooms start at a fashionably-reasonable $299.
