With just shy of a hundred and fifty rooms, it would be pushing it to call the Mandeville a “boutique” hotel. But more than many high-end hotels, it’s got an aesthetic all its own. Call it a design hotel, but one for fashion designers, not architects and other monochrome types. These pleasant pastels are immediately distinctive, and a bit more welcoming than the standard beige and gray, though they’re swimming against the tide a bit when it comes to the London-bred taste for clubby, masculine spaces — the only thing masculine about the Mandeville is the first syllable of its name.
