EVERY ROOM TELLS A STORY: A SERIES OF FILMS BY KIT KEMP
WELCOME TO THE WHITBY HOTEL
Following the overwhelming success of Crosby Street Hotel which opened in downtown SoHo in 2009, Tim and Kit Kemp, founders of Firmdale Hotels have now opened The Whitby, their second New York hotel. The Whitby Hotel is a celebration of contemporary art and design. Interiors have been designed by Kit Kemp, acclaimed for her individual and unique way of arranging spaces with a colourful and carefree spirit.
'We feel that Midtown can be just that little bit too serious and what we wanted to add was colour and wit."
"The Whitby Hotel is a breath of fresh air. When you open the doors you should be able to say "Wow I've arrived" and it's something that I'm going to remember but somewhere that you want to return to time and time again.' - Kit Kemp Every Room Tells a Story: Welcome to The Whitby Hotel
