How to make a smallish hotel in a chic shopping district stand out from the pack with a makeover that is clever, not cutesy? The new Pantone Hotel in Brussels gets its theme and inspiration from the worldwide color authority's swatches of the most vibrant, intense hues, set against minimal white rooms. No less an expert judge than Travel + Leisure named the hotel to its top design award for a smaller establishment.

Excerpt:  (Hotel website) "The PANTONE HOTEL invites you to experience the city of Brussels through a lens of color and a spectrum of comforts. From the moment you arrive, our “hotel of colors” will awaken your senses to an array of delights and playful surprises.

Impeccably designed by Michel Penneman and Olivier Hannaert, The PANTONE HOTEL, Brussels showcases the color of emotion with a distinctive hue on each colorous guest floor. From vivid to subdued, for business or leisure, our unique boutique hotel perfectly suits your savvy palette and colorful imagination.

From a design perspective, The PANTONE HOTEL, Brussels is built on an exceptional use of contrast; a white canvas provides clean space for saturated colors to pop. Guest rooms feature unique photography by esteemed Belgian photographer Victor Levy.

Welcome to the center of the color universe."

Excerpt: (Travel + Leisure) " 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."
