Hotel News Briefs :: Leading Hotels of the World, Let's Try This Again, Shall We?
There's tons of hotel news flying around this week and we don't have time to give each and every story the love and attention it may deserve, so you will have to settle for some news briefs.
· Oops, LHW! Can We Try Again?: After the Leading Hotels of the World's $19.28 room promotion ended in a total technical collapse this morning, they've issued a statement about the debacle and have emailed everyone who had registered for the promo. Turns out, everyone who tried to score a room this morning will get a second chance to participate -- and it will happen via email this time. [MW]
· Whitney Port at the W Times Square: Whitney Port -- the other blonde chick from The Hills who is neither LC nor Heidi -- is in NYC and is staying at the W Times Square. We'd go stalk her if she did something scandalous. Which she will never do. [Gawker]
· Mayfair Coconut Grove Gets Rooftop Bar: The Mayfair Hotel and Spa in Coconut Grove, FL is getting a bit of a revival with a swanky new rooftop bar, opening tomorrow. Watch out, Gans South. Someone's poised for a comeback. [MW]
· Le Parker Meridien Introduces the Knave: Le Parker Meridien is opening up a brand new coffee/wine/sandwich spot with super fancypants coffee. Get this: no to-go cups, no drip coffee, no oversized drinks, and no cappuccinos served after noon. [Eater]
