There's even more 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.

· Is the Hotel Costes Coming to Tribeca?: The Tribeca Citizen has discovered that a building at 443 Greenwich Street is turning into a hotel and that it may possibly become the New York outpost of the hip Parisian Hotel Costes hotel. A Sotheby's agent tweeted the Hotel Costes news but Tribeca Citizen hasn't been able to confirm anything just yet. What is for sure is that Tribeca is definitely getting a hotel at 443 Greenwich Street (pictured above.) And we're totally down with that!

· Sean Mac's Hotel Plans Materializing on W. 8th Street: When we last checked in with hotelier Sean MacPherson we could only guess if his plans to turn the Marlton House, an SRO building in Greenwich Village, would actually come to fruition. Well, according to this piece in the NY Post on the revitalized W. 8th Street neighborhood, his dreams are coming true. The building will be transformed into a Parisian-style 120-room boutique hotel. Even better, it will open by the end of the year.

· Viceroy Hotel Group Gets a New CEO: Viceroy Hotel Group has just announced their new CEO, Bill Walshe, who comes to the boutique chain from the Doyle Collection in the UK. He's also done a stint at the Jumeirah Group. All his international experience will surely come in handy as Viceroy gets ready to expand to Istanbul, Bodrum, New York as well as future destinations in Europe, Middle East and Asia.

· The Hyatt Kids Menu Gets a Healthy Upgrade from Alice Waters: Most adults make special pilgrimages to chef Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Calif. but now kids staying at Hyatt Hotels in the San Francisco-area will get to taste the celebrate chef's organic dinner menu without leaving their hotel. The full organic meal includes a salad, a chicken entree and a dessert. The special menu is part of Hyatt's larger "For Kids, By Kids" menu which has revamped kiddie favorites with healthier and fresher ingredients.

· Hilton's 'Going' Even More Places: Hilton Hotels have rolled out another phase of their ad campaign, "Stay Hilton. Go Everywhere." The newest ads will get more specific than "everywhere" by encouraging guests to "Go Chill," "Go Refresh" or "Go Foodie" during their Hilton stay. You should start seeing the new ads in major magazines and in airports pretty soon. We're still not convinced it will convince us to stay at a Hilton just yet.
