It looks like we have to add one more to our Top 10 NYC Hotel Openings List. We've just heard that The Andaz Wall Street will open January 2010. Yes! January! So exciting, we know.

HotelChatter has spent the night at both the Andaz London and the Andaz West Hollywood and the crazysexycool experience of this new boutique brand from Hyatt has left us chomping at the bit for more locations to open up. And in just four months, we shall be able to experience Andaz on the East Coast.

From to the hotel's website (yes, they even have a website!):

The Andaz experience begins the moment a guest arrives at the hotel and is greeted by an Andaz host. Guests can enjoy complimentary welcome beverages while being checked in via handheld PC in the Andaz Lounge, or simply en-route to the guestroom. The Andaz Lounge – an open, communal space replacing the traditional lobby – is perfect for a quick coffee in the morning or impromptu drinks in the evenings.

For anyone who's stayed at the Andaz WeHo, the check-in process is one of the coolest bits about arriving to the hotel as there's no front desk--only this handheld tablet. Sure, some folks get confused since they are expecting a proper front desk but we appreciate the Andaz's modern twist on check-in.

Guest rooms will also have free WiFi, complimentary minibar treats and non-alcoholic drinks, and free local phones calls. Judging from the renderings, a peek-a-boo bathtub will be placed in the rooms as well.

A fitness center, a spa and an Andaz Studio--a meeting space with high tech toys, residential-style furniture and a communal kitchen where Andaz chefs prepare cooked-to-order dishes--round out the offerings. Oh and yes, let's not forget the all-important restaurant and bar. Tentatively titled the Andaz Lounge, the bar is where "lounge meets library meets light-fare bar." Large windows will allow guests to glimpse the hustle and bustle on Pearl and Water streets while long communal tables are meant for newspaper reads in the morning and drinks with friends (and strangers) before going out.

The Andaz restaurant will take up 3,550-sq.ft. of space and true to the Andaz philosophy of localizing each hotel's identity, the restaurant will feature "market-to-table" flavors from the Hudson Valley.

Needless to say, we're very excited. But we're not the only ones. How excited is the internet for this hotel to open? It already has a TripAdvisor page.
