Our 5th annual Hospitality Design (HD) Awards honored the best of the best on Thursday, June 4th at New York City's Hudson Theatre at the Millennium Broadway Hotel. The fun-filled evening sponsored by Mark David and Interiors From Spain, with awards created and provided by UltraGlas, included an awards presentation followed by a night of cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and networking starting at the hotel and continuing into the wee hours of the night at the HD Awards after party held at Aspen Social Club and sponsored by Hampshire/Vikram Chatwal Hotels, Alcatel-Lucent, Stonehill & Taylor Architects and Planners, and the venue itself. One of the biggest highlights of the night was the award For Best of Show. And the award goes to?
