The Jade Hotel to Expand in NYC and Miami

April 10, 2014 at 2:56 PM | by | Comments (0)

Looks like we weren't the only ones who enjoyed a stay at the The Jade Hotel in NYC.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a second Jade Hotel with what we hope will be 114 similarly designed rooms will open in late 2015 at 34-36 W. 38th Street (near Bryant Park). What's got us excited is that the original architects from Atelier & Co. along with the city's most prolific hotel architect ever, Gene Kaufman are tasked with doing the design. And that's not all. A third Jade Hotel will open near the South Street Seaport at 33 Peck Slip. This address was previously occupied by a Best Western. Atelier will also be behind this project along with MLG Architects. This hotel will actually open first in mid-2015.

But wait, there's YET ANOTHER Jade Hotel in the works...in Miami. That hotel will open sometime in 2016. #OMG #Yes.

Ready For The Next Generation Of Hudson Hotel? London Set To Open in 2015

In the middle of an afternoon spent watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians re-runs (don't judge), we came across an announcement from our dear friends at Morgans Hotel Group, declaring that New York's Hudson Hotel is not only about to get a much-needed facelift (okay, we already knew that part), but that the entire Hudson brand is about to be exported to London, for a new 200-room hotel set to open in 2015.

Our first reaction to this was...'Huh?' After all, the debut of Mondrian in London was hyped up quite a bit, so we figured their focus would stay there for a while. Not to mention Morgans' Delano projects in Las Vegas and Dubai, both of which fell through.

So now they want us to get excited about a Hudson in London. Well, slap us silly and call us Susan.
