Historic Architecture Meets Modern Design

It is a marriage of opposites: history meets innovation, old stone meets plexiglass, mosaic meets metal.

These top ten hotels have been designed to incorporate modern ideas into beautiful old buildings giving birth to something new. We're inspired, we hope you will be too. www.designhotels.com
