"Ooh, is that that blogger with the minimalist aesthetic and an alliterative name combining some sort of cute food with a type of fabric?" you whisper discreetly to the receptionist at the front desk of that hotel with the minimalist aesthetic, neon-lit escalator, and single name. She'll never tell, but yes—yes it is. In advance of Fashion Week—but for whenever, because stylish surroundings are for all seasons—12 very well-appointed hotels, whether your stay is spontaneous or not.

1. The Beekman

You've probably seen more than one skyward snap of the famous wrought-iron balconies on your Instagram feed, but did you know that along those railings, there are extremely comfortable rooms? And a plush bar that feels like it could be a meeting place for the Skull and Bones society? No wonder it's also a popular spot for fashion dinners and events—you never know who you might spot there. Be cool.

2. The London Edition

With a perpetually lit lobby bar and an underground venue that plays host to designers' thumping after-parties, the Edition hosts a crowd that's as interested in de Kooning as it is in Delpozo. Dream London Fashion Week itinerary: a full day of shows, a cheeky pop over to the nearby Dover Street Market for a new Simone Rocha or Comme des Garçons something-or-other, rubbing elbows at some fabulous fête downstairs, then a swift elevator ride up to your cozy-modern room as the sun comes up. Bonus: If you're a strictly NYFW girl, its Big Apple sister has a similar cool.

3. Public

A post shared by PUBLIC Hotels (@publichotels) on

Everything you want in a hotel—a Tron escalator, a Jean Georges restaurant (never mind the stereotype that fashion people don't eat), a rooftop with sick views—with none of the stuff you don't (mainly lots of extra employees asking 489 times if they can help you, which can get kind of suffocating). And because it's an Ian Schrager property, there are always lots of Fashion Happenings going on in the Public Arts space.

4. Refinery Hotel

Even though the New York shows have splintered in terms of venue, the Refinery is still plenty close to the action—and even closer when you consider that it's located in the Garment District The rooms even reference the building's past as a hat factory (chic), while the Refinery Rooftop was made for post-harried-running-around chilling.

5. The Peninsula Paris

What? You don't want to roll up to the Grand Palais in the hotel's 1934 Rolls-Royce? Or have a quick nip around to the Champs-Elysées? Or a massive, Versailles-y room all to yourself?

6. Hôtel de Crillon

A post shared by Hôtel de Crillon (@rwcrillon) on

After undergoing a massive renovation, this historic luxury hotel reopened earlier this summer looking as fresh as one of the famous debutantes that swan about there every November at Le Bal. This might've had something to do with the painstaking restorations, all that marble, and Karl Lagerfeld lending his signature touch to the Grands Appartements. Just call it the old-new PFW clubhouse for a gaggle of international editors in chief.

7. Hotel Le Bristol Paris

Is Giambattista Valli going to design your wedding gown? DO YOU LIKE TOILE? If you're that brand of fancy, this century-old property is for you. Plus they've got an in-house cat to stress-pet when you find you've been demoted to second row at Dior.

8. Principe di Savoia

Everybody stays here during Milan Fashion Week. Everybody.

9. 11 Howard

A post shared by 11 Howard Hotel (@11_howard) on

You've got the Blond at the top of the spiral staircase (great music, party central) and another ace Instagram opp a short stroll away at the retro-futuristic restaurant Nickel & Diner, not to mention in-house dining at Le Coucou (with a highly photogenic bar). Again: Fashion people, like the rest of us, really do eat.

10. The Mark Hotel

On the first Monday in May, AKA the Met Gala, you can't even get in for all the paparazzi blocking the doors, hoping to get a shot of the celebrities departing. The rest of the year, it's no less fashiony, with a classic, monochrome aesthetic and unstuffy vibe.

11. 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

A post shared by 1 Hotels (@1hotels) on

As designers continue to move their presentations downtown, pretty clever to situate yourself in the thick of it all even more south of that at the Brooklyn Bridge waterfront. And when you're tired of dodging street-style photographers, nurse something mezcal-based as you take in the view from the rooftop.
