Bad news for anyone planning to complement their summer music festival-hopping NYC stay in July with a night or two at Brooklyn's much-hyped music-themed hotel, Hotel BPM: the place won't be opening until August 1.

We got the news via an e-blast from the hotel, who, amidst all the excitement about opening rates of just $139/night (the number corresponds to the hotel's less-hyped address at 139 33rd St, which, for anyone not familiar with Brooklyn, is pretty much as far from any "action" as August 1 is from the original projected opening date of July 2011, but we digress...) only casually mentions that guests won't actually be able to book stays for another two and a half months.

Simultaneously, they also manage to tease us with a new music-themed amenity offered to guests.

No doubt orchestrated by the property's visionary owner (and first-time hotelier) DJ Bijal, everyone who books a room online will be able to make one song request (as if you were walking up to the DJ himself at a party), and that song will play at some point during your stay.

Remember: every room here is hooked up to a property-wide sound system, which plays funky tunes all day long up until midnight, and which guests can control through a volume knob installed in the bathroom.

Have a habit of waking up specifically to Beyonce? Just mention it to the Front Desk upon booking your stay, and there's a good chance your R&B-fueled morning routine won't have to be interrupted.

At the same time, the hotel has launched its brand new website, of which owner DJ Bijal had this to say:

"The website offers a sophisticated, user-friendly approach to learning about our hotel and planning for an upcoming trip to the world's greatest city. We are thrilled to launch the site along with the opening of our online booking engine, and can't wait to welcome guests to BPM in August."
