Best Hotel (Fewer Than 100 Rooms)
Pantone Hotel, Brussels

Designed by Michel Penneman (interiors) and Olivier Hannaert (exterior)

It’s a gimmick, but it works: this 61-room hotel features one distinctive Pantone color per floor, ranging from vivid to more subdued. The Pantone Hotel is built on contrasts; white walls provide a blank canvas for saturated colors to pop. At the shop are Pantone products of all sorts, from furniture to iPhone cases. Doubles from $120.

From the Jury

“Pantone is clever, but not ‘cute,’ exactly what a small hotel should be.” —David Childs

Honorable Mention: Waterhouse at South Bund; Shanghai; designed by Neri & Hu Design and Research Office
