At Dream Downtown, located across the street from Chelsea Market in New York City, you’ll want to make a beeline for Megu. Descend an infinity-mirrored staircase into this inventive restaurant located just below Dream Downtown that features creative high-end Japanese cuisine and cocktails. Here you’ll find an ambiance awash in shades of purple that range from violet to magenta to mulberry. Enjoy a playful selection of menu items, like edamame lollipops and crispy brussel sprouts, before saying “sweet dreams” in your hotel room up above.
Aria Hotel Budapest
At Aria Hotel Budapest, many of the rooms delight discerning guests with playful pops of violet, fuchsia and orchid. Window treatments, headboards, even tabletops, burst with refreshing shades of purple at this musically-inspired boutique hotel. Each of the 49 guestrooms honors a world-famous musician or composer, from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to Ella Fitzgerald and Elvis. Every room is artfully designed and decorated with signature colors to capture the emotions associated with different styles of music, including jazz, classical, opera and contemporary.
Kimpton EPIC Miami
One step inside the inviting LILT Lounge at the Kimpton EPIC Hotel in downtown Miami and you’ll find yourself immersed in a sea of violets, fuchsias and purples. The seductive cocktail lounge offers a bold, colorful escape from the club scene. Feel the glow of the ultra violet lighting as you sip cocktails, like the delightfully fresh, Lavender Mule. Enjoy pops of color emanating from the purple fabric chairs and the backlit circular bar, even the purple swirl wall paneling.
At YOTEL, the signature color is purple, so expect to see all shades of this enchanting hue across their seven micro hotel properties, including YOTEL Boston, which opened in Boston’s Seaport in June. Violets and purples permeate guest rooms (known as cabins), mood lighting and accents in common spaces. Even outdoor signage welcomes guests with brightly-colored violet neon, beckoning guests in from the street for an experience that combines luxury essentials, like upscale toiletries, with cleverly designed small spaces.
The Mayton Inn
The Mayton Inn, a Georgian-style boutique hotel in historic downtown Cary, North Carolina, boasts a signature color palette alive with blues, purples and reds. Book a stay in the King Suite where you’ll luxuriate in mauves and periwinkles across elegant linens and custom-designed window treatments. Even the walls are painted a sophisticated shade of purple. Relax and unwind at the in-house spa, Tonic Remedies, before settling in for the night with individual white noise control in every room.
Hotel Le Marais
In New Orleans, book a stay at Hotel Le Marais, a hip boutique hotel situated in the French Quarter. Here you’ll find a delightful mix of Big Easy charm, thanks to gas lamps, leafy foliage and plantation shutters, and chic sophistication. Inside, brightly colored oversize armchairs invite travelers to sit and stay awhile. Outside, a saltwater pool set quietly in a serene brick courtyard complete with violet-hued chair cushions and mood lighting serves as a relaxing oasis, far from Bourbon Street revelers.
Mamaison All-Suites Spa Hotel Pokrovka
At Mamaison All-Suites Spa Hotel Pokrovka in Moscow, many of the interior spaces are beautified by the color purple. From the first steps into the hotel lobby, guests are greeted by bright pops of violet and fuchsia, which dominate the front desk area. Even the Junior Suite Deluxe boasts jewel tone accents in deep shades of violet and indigo. Enjoy a relaxing swim in the indoor pool, a steam bath or a massage before exploring Moscow’s historic Basmanny district just outside the doors of the hotel.
Harrah's Resort Southern California
You may want to stay inside at Harrah’s Resort Southern California thanks to an on-site brewery, a lazy river and wellness-inspired rooms with yoga mats and vitamin C infused showers, but you’ll need to go outside to delight in the hotel’s exterior bathed in violet light. Every night, this 403-room oasis in San Diego’s North County inland region lights up as a beacon, drawing travelers into Funner, California, a brand new town with only one hotel and a mayor named David Hasselhoff.
At Carlisle Bay, a luxury resort in Antigua, make time to browse the ultra-modern library when not frolicking in the turquoise waters or relaxing under the palm trees. The stylish library is wired with fiber-optic mood lighting that changes colors depending on the time of day. In the morning, a cool blue hue permeates the library, while a fun ultraviolet glow takes over in the evenings. The library features a curated selection of captivating beach reads in a space that is both contemporary and comfortable.
At Sanderson London, a luxury boutique hotel, stop in for a drink or two at Purple Bar, an intimate lounge that’s quickly become a favorite gathering spot in London’s West End. Sip cocktails and people-watch amongst silk opera curtains, etched Venetian mirrors and a sophisticated pantone-inspired palette of violets, lavenders and purples. Feeling creative? Sign up for Cocktail Heaven, a masterclass designed for first-timers taught by London’s top mixologists. Students will learn the ins and outs of crafting innovative cocktails.
