November 1st marks the 40th year since the birth of the mouthless cartoon character and there is no better way then to pay homage to this kitty-that-is-not-actually-a-kitty-but-still-sort-of-a-kitty character with rooms decorated after it. yes. we call it ‘it’.
anyways, “Kitty Town” is said to features a pop culture-style, cheerful decor designed by KPH’s dedicated designers, depicting the world’s most famous Kitty enjoying herself at an amusement park and shopping with her family and friends. the Princess Kitty room on the other hand, takes on a more ‘formal’ feel that, as the name implies, is a princess’ room that doesn’t look as kiddish, but no less super feminine. so guys, take note. make sure don’t make the wrong choice, unless you are staying with your misses or girlfriend, or booking it for your daughters.
