About Electric Lady...Electric Lady Studios in New York City's Greenwich Village, was originally built by Jimi Hendrix and designed by John Storyk in 1969-70. It would inaugurate a new era in studio recording by becoming the very first artist owned and operated world-class recording facility. There, Jimi would record his every whim, sketching what would later be known as "First Rays of the New Rising Sun," and chronicling countless jam sessions with guests such as Steve Winwood and Chris Wood of Traffic. In the decades that followed, the studio's legend grew. Artists like, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Clash, The Cars, Patti Smith, John Lennon, AC/DC, and Kiss -- all produced monumental recordings at Electric Lady.
Today, the studio continues to prosper as Manhatten's most seasoned recording facility. Radiohead, The White Stripes, Ryan Adams, Bjork, U2, Prince, The Mars Volta, Common, The Roots, Al Green, Alicia Keys, Lou Reed, Jay-Z, Foo Fighters, Guns N Roses, Bob Dylan, Muse, Interpol, and Metric (for starters) have joined the already impressive client list -- further illuminatng Electric Lady's thumbprint on Rock N' Roll history. electricladystudios.com

The black, aqua and crimson color scheme continues more subtly in sleek new poolside bungalows, where the very Lambert luxuries range from turntables (the office has a shelf of vinyl to lend) to 100 percent organic, king-size Hästens beds (starting price about $6,000). Drinks and breakfast crepes are served in the guests-only bar, or on the patio shaded by twisty limbed, 100-year-old oaks. hotelsaintcecilia.com
