Located in the center of a charming walkable community, this historic boutique hotel is immersed in luxurious design elements which reflect a European sensibility that infuses its interiors with the vibrancy of urban street life. The design of la Pensione hotel highlights a sense of the district’s historic Italian heritage.
The client’s vision was to take the old hotel and turn it into a destination boutique hotel, in the heart of the historic district, of little Italy. This was done not only by design but also the rebranding of the entire image of the hotel. Deniece Duscheone design was instrumental in providing this vision, while keeping in mind the importance of budget and growth for la Pensione.
