Park Hyatt Up Their Art Cred, Launch a Magazine

November 14, 2013 at 8:49 AM | by | Comments (0)

We've said it before, hotel magazines are back! Now, just in time for Art Basel Miami, Park Hyatt have just launched an online contemporary art magazine named ARTPHAIRE -- yes, that's a 'PH;" for Park Hyatt of course.

Developed in conjunction with BOND Strategy & Influence, ARTPHAIRE launched last week and features a guide to fall's artist retrospectives and upcoming auctions; a Q&A with Anne Pasternak, a profile of Yayoi Kusama, many beautiful high resolution images, and a whole lot of Top 10 lists.

The Standard's New Attention-Grabbing Ads We Can't Ignore

September 12, 2012 at 2:47 PM | by | Comments (0)

We spy with our little eye...something that's weird and unsettling.

Never one to back away from the odd or the outlandish, Standard Hotels have launched a new ad campaign that's running in highbrow magazines like Apartamento, ArtForum, Interview, Paper Magazine, and V. The content? Pretty people doing not-so-pretty things like drooling, peeing, and sticking their heads in other people's shirts.

Commenting on the ads to the NY Times, Andre Balazs said:

"The purpose of this advertising is to bring a degree of sophistication."

Um, right.

Autograph Makes Its Mark With A New Hotel Magazine

January 12, 2012 at 9:00 AM | by | Comments (0)

Autograph Collection has one other piece of news to share this week: the launch of a new magazine, titled rather appropriately, Autograph Collection Hotel Magazine. Also rather appropriately, the masthead contains the autographs of four of the company's executives. But it gets more interesting after that...

True to the nature of the hotels themselves—culturally significant, beautiful, slightly artsy—the stories themselves are quirky, compelling and very beautifully designed. Topics range from desert shrimp farms to frescoes in Rome to "auto-correcting" the poetry of Emily Dickinson (ha), with about a third of the stories corresponding to specific Autograph Collection hotels. Wise, on their part. With only 24 in their growing collection, they might otherwise have run out of ideas after just two issues!

Scroll down for a peek inside!

A New Autograph Collection Hotel Launches Today in NYC

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 88 Madison Avenue [map], New York, NY, United States, 10016

That's right, The Algonquin is no longer New York's only Autograph Collection hotel. As of tonight at midnight, rooms at The Carlton, on Madison Avenue and E 29th St, will be bookable via the Autograph website, under the category of Boutique Chic.

The Rockwell Group, who has worked on other hotels like The Cosmopolitan, The Ames and Trump Soho, revealed that The Carlton is in fact housed in a former carpet showroom. And when renovations began, they discovered not only a Tiffany style glass dome on the mezzanine level, but also exquisite mosaic flooring, which had been—as luck would have it—preserved perfectly by the carpets themselves. Oh, the serendipity of interior design!

Flipping Through JWM, The New JW Marriott Magazine

September 21, 2011 at 12:51 PM | by | Comments (0)

Awhile back when we started profiling Hotel Magazines, we called them a dying hotel amenity. But we're starting to see new ones crop up, so perhaps we were a little quick to start writing their obituaries. The latest to hit a hotel room near you? JWM, the magazine from (who else?) JW Marriott.

Or, as it says right there on the cover, 'The Magazine of Passionate Pursuits.' just in case you won't be bunking in one of JW Marriott's 54 properties any time soon, you can take a spin through JWM right here in our gallery.

As you can see, it's a classy production, with sleek design and good paper stock. The photos are strong, and there's a good mix of content, both servicey and useful, and frivolous and indulgent.

It's been awhile since we've taken a look at our favorite dying hotel amenity--The Hotel Magazine--so today we have a brand new one to browse. Know of a hotel magazine we should see before it goes out of print? Send it to us!

Which Hotel Is Putting Out Its Own Newspaper?

July 15, 2011 at 12:00 PM | by | Comments (0)

It's a double dose of Guess The Hotel!!

We've heard of hotel magazines before, but hotel newspapers? That's a new one. This week's Guess The Hotel features a new hotel that likes to pay homage to its neighborhood through the pages of a newspaper-style brochure. There's your first hint. More details to come on Monday, so we're not saying much else. Just know that this hotel will open soon, somewhere in the USA, and, yes, it is already taking reservations.

· This hotel sits roughly equidistant from two large rivers, though only one is visible from the roof.

'Wynning' While Reading the Wynn Magazine

October 14, 2010 at 4:01 PM | by | Comments (0)

iPads, be damned, we're loving our stroll through print land and our ongoing look at a dying hotel amenity--The Hotel Magazine. Sure, most hotels stock their guestrooms with the trendy magazines of the day or at least place some localized publication on the desks but there are actually a few hotels out there that still publish their own magazine. We've got our hands on a few copies of these rare breeds and we'll be documenting our finds for you here. Know of a hotel magazine we should see before it goes out of print? Send it to us!

We don't really need to tell you what Wynn and Encore Las Vegas are all about but in case you've been undergoing some cryogenics therapy since the early 2000s and have only awoken now, just know that Wynn and Encore are all about luxury. That is all.

Now, anyone who's ever stayed at these twin towers in Vegas will know that these are the classiest rooms on the Strip. While there are good and bad rooms in every hotel, all of the Wynn/Encore rooms are superior to most other Vegas hotel rooms.

So naturally, the Wynn Magazine is all about luxury, specifically the luxury found inside the Wynn and Encore.

Truth be told, we didn't pay much attention to the books and magazines inside our room at Parrot Cay earlier this summer. With a view like this, can you blame us?

But now we're back at home, we've been perusing the COMO Hotels magazine, Home From Home, and it's seriously making us wish one of these resorts was our home.

Deciding What 'Preferred Lifestyle' to Choose from Preferred Hotels

August 20, 2010 at 12:28 PM | by | Comments (0)

iPads, be damned, we're loving our stroll through print land and our ongoing look at a dying hotel amenity--The Hotel Magazine.

The other week when we took a look at the Preferred Hotels and Resorts , we found out that not only do they get the pre-opening skinny on new hotels along with great rates for existing hotels, they also put out a magazine called Preferred Lifestyles.

We got our hands on the newest issue from this year and spent some quality time perusing the different "lifestyles" to lead.

Having such a wide range of hotels to write about, the magazine can touch on pretty much every destination in the world. And that's what's great about the mag's in-depth articles. They aren't built around a hotel but rather a destination, like South Africa (just before the 2010 FIFA World Cup), Utah, Boston and Rome. Suggested places to stay (of course, all Preferred Hotels) are then listed at the end of the articles.

Most of the Hotel Magazines we’ve reviewed recently have been brand-wide publications but not the hefty, glossy Baur Au Lac Views magazine. All 144 pages of this fancy publication are for the reading pleasure of guests staying at the ultra-swish Baur Au Lac in Zurich.

Its $50m renovation is now complete, and the hotel—and its magazine—is keen to strut about and show it off.
