If life is one long performance, hotels should play a starring role. Look at how HOTEL CIRAGAN PALACE KEMPINSKI, above, has covered up its entrance during the palatial property’s extensive re-do. LE CRILLON, A ROSEWOOD HOTEL similarly covered its entire Place de la Concorde facade while changing, and, more recently, THE DORCHESTER protected its ground floor and entrance botox from prying eyes.
Think of a Marilyn Monroe or Kim Kardashian wrapped in Pratesi Treccia bath towels for privacy – orange edged, for statement. Yes, theatre again. Flamboyance and je ne sais quoi, and let’s applaud the show. And get it on the road, agree?
