YOU’VE GOT IT MADE
Hospitality entrepreneur Sam Gelin’s first hotel offers a new concept for hotel guests.
Made Hotel, which opened in September in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, is a seductive retreat in which all barriers were removed to encourage bold interactions. The lobby, where guests check in, is a wide open space where freshly ground coffee is served in the morning, cappuccinos in the afternoons and cocktails in the evening, and where guests and local mingle at all times. Interiors come courtesy of Studio Mai, who created guest rooms with exposed raw bronze shelving, handwoven fabrics and polished stainless steel mirrors.
