A new Chelsea hotel from the hospitality gang at Wyndham, Fashion 26 is simple in a plaidish way. Tucked away on West 26th Street around the corner from F.I.T. and next to the deco beauty of the Lefcourt Clothing Center at 275 Seventh Avenue, this checkered stack with 280 rooms is from Peter Poon Architects, masters of urban in-fill. The big bonus here is the semi-circular driveway for easy pick-ups. Inside will be the latest outpost of Rare Bar & Grill, where the M&M Burger can be enjoyed amidst rooftop views. HotelChatter has the scoop on the uniforms, severe in dark grey. Accountants take note: The opening of Fashion 26 is set for April 15th.
