Architectural Digest Magazine had its eye on The Chequit hotel recently. 

The recently renovated Shelter Island hotel was featured in an online article titled “5 Incredibly Stylish Hamptons Hotels” June 1.

“Last summer saw the launch of the Chequit by hoteliers David Bowd and Kevin O’Shea of Salt Hotels,” the article read. “Its 37 rooms, decorated by O’Shea’s design firm, are cool, light-filled spaces in a palette of blush and gray. Guests can enjoy details like custom-made headboards, original wood floors, Aztec-print rugs and Serena & Lily’s Windsor-style chairs.”

The article specifically highlighted new and newly refreshed hotels in or near the Hamptons.

The Chequit’s owners posted their reaction to the magazine’s positive critique on their Facebook page.

“We are incredibly thrilled to be featured in this fantastic article by Architectural Digest,” the post read.

The magazine also went on to recommend the hotel’s restaurant, Red Maple.

“The hotel’s restaurant and bar, Red Maple, now offers weekend brunch, and the freshly shelled lobster roll, lamb meatballs, and pretzel bites (along with a glass of Grüner) are not to be missed,” the article states.

It’s the kind of review that has us already planning our next visit to the Rock.
