Sneak Peek: The Norman, Tel Aviv, Israel

The Norman stirs up the roar of the 1920s in the thoroughly exuberant city of Tel Aviv.

Why Go: Right next to the treelined Rothschild Boulevard, the Norman has unassumingly moved into a bustling, elegant neighborhood in central Tel Aviv. The project took over two adjacent apartment buildings built in distinct styles during the 1920s. The yellow one has a traditionally decorous vibe, with sophisticated ornamentation and white shutters, while the simple, straight lines of the blue one look as modern as they did 90 years ago. The hotel’s location on the well-known King Albert Square positions guests nearby the city’s financial center by day and the fun of its nightlife after dark.

What to Expect: A full restoration of both apartment buildings has yielded 30 hotel rooms (from $375) and 20 suites with art deco influences. Atop the yellow building are an infinity pool and spa, and the Library Bar on the main floor serves the Norman’s signature pomegranate martini around the clock. Dinings, one of two main restaurants, specializes in sushi and izakaya dishes. Guests can work with the hotel’s resident curator to arrange tours of local galleries and artists’ studios and obtain complete details about the Israeli fine-art pieces throughout the hotel.

How to Get There: The Norman is a 20-minute drive (closer to 45 minutes in traffic) from Ben Gurion Airport. (+972.3.632.2888, www.thenorman.com)
