Well this isn’t very true to character. The Exhibitionist Hotel in South Kensington, which we told you about last month, is opening earlier than its scheduled 1 December date – rooms are available to book from 10 November.
An early opening is weird in itself, but what’s weirder is that the hotel’s own website, which was imminent last time we checked in, is still not up and running - there’s just a placeholder page with email addresses to contact. Less than two weeks to go and no website? That’s brave.
You can, of course, still book through the Preferred Hotel Group, which is showing rooms from £368 on opening night. But if you’re planning to book, you should do it through flash sale site Secret Escapes, which has it for £199 – good value for the location.
It seems like only yesterday we were freaking out over the launch of flash hotel sale site Jetsetter.com. From the people of Gilt Groupewho deal mainly in luxury fashion, discountedJetsetter hit the online travel booking scene with a bang in late 2009 and has since inspired several spin-off sites.
Celebrating two years in business and the continuing expansion of their offerings (it's not just hotels anymore, but also villa rentals, cruises and adventure experiences), they've done what every design-focused successful company does one day or another; they've printed a big, beautiful coffee table book called "Bon Voyage." It's funny to note that the 12"x12" boxed book is a collab with Partners & Spade and made in Icelanda country we thought only produced pretty people and awful ash clouds these days.

Safari flash sale, anyone?
Belonging to the gilded family of flash sale sites that is Gilt Groupe, Jetsetter capitalizes on the mildly frugal habits of its largely monied clientele. The same shoppers purchasing Nina Ricci and Valentino at a "bargain" (typically meaning prices in the hundreds rather than the thousands) turn to Jetsetter for deals on some of the world's most desirable hotels and resorts.
Flash sales: they've changed the landscape when it comes to snagging the best hotel room rates. And when that landscape looks a lot like Paris in the Springtime, what's not to love? One of the latest sales on VoyagePrive will even fly you there and back.
Here's the skinny: The sale includes a flight-only deal, departing from New York City or Las Vegas, with the NYC-Paris trip starting at $419 round-trip. That's a 55% discount off the regular fare of $748.
And it gets even better when you opt for the flight-plus-hotel option. The round-trip airfare and a two-night stay at Hotel Magenta starts at just $579 per person. Not bad for a package that would usually set you back over $1,100.
