LEMAN LOCKE, LON­DON

Whitechapel in Lon­don’s East End was once the hunt­ing ground of the in­fa­mous Jack the Rip­per. Thank­fully, to­day it’s be­come bet­ter known for its out­door mar­kets (such as Brick Lane and Spi­tal­fields), retro fash­ion, arts and crafts, and de­signer chocolates. At the stylish apart­ment-style ho­tel Leman Locke, each unit comes com­plete with a kitch­enette, wash­ing ma­chine and dish­washer. The ho­tel’s prime lo­ca­tion makes it a great place to be­gin ex­plor­ing the ar­ti­sanal food stalls and indie bou­tiques around Whitechapel. lock­e­liv­ing.com/leman-locke

THE ROBEY, CHICAGO

Of­ten com­pared to New York’s East and West Vil­lages, Chicago’s Wicker Park is a neigh­bour­hood of tree-lined streets and Vic­to­rian houses that oozes artsy cool. Stay close to it all at The Robey, a 69-room ho­tel in a 1929 Art Deco of­fice build­ing that was trans­formed by the Bel­gian de­sign firms Ni­co­las Schuy­broek Ar­chi­tects and Marc Mer­ckx In­te­ri­ors. The ho­tel’s sleek de­sign brings to mind scenes from a hard-boiled Amer­i­can de­tec­tive novel. ther­obey.com
