Is Amsterdam on your travel itinerary this summer? You may want to reconsider your hotel choices, as there will be something new to try: The Hoxton Amsterdam beat our estimate of an opening in September (along almost-neighbor W Amsterdam) by unleashing reservations from July 13.

Officially, rates start from €89, which currently comes out to a clean $100. Playing around with dates in the second half of July, a Saturday night seems most expensive, with rates from €159 ($178) a night, while on Sunday, we even spy a “Shoebox” for €69 ($77) a night. We’ve heard of dorm beds in an Amsterdam hostel going for more than that. All in all, depending on the size of the room you pick, you should be able to get an average of around $150 a night, which is outstanding value.

Thanks to Starwood, Venice's San Clemente Island is Open Once More

This time last year, the San Clemente Palace was a shuttered, slightly battered grand old hotel in Venice, quietly wasting away on her own private island.

How things have changed – because after being picked up by Starwood and promptly closed for €25m of renovations, the St. Regis Venice San Clemente Palace is now open. Doesn’t she look better?

The lights were on but nobody was home the last time we checked in on the Nautilus South Beach, Sixty Hotels’ refurbishment of the iconic Morris Lapidus property in Miami.

But now it's time to start planning a sweltering summer break in Miami, because reservations are now open for July 6.

Patina Singapore is Nearly Ready for Your 24-Hour Stay

April 21, 2015 at 8:34 AM | by | Comments (2)

It feels like we’ve already waited too long for the 24-hour stays, possible calligraphy classes and six full stars of the Patina Singapore, but the wait is nearly over – because they’ve now set August 1 as the opening date.

At least, that’s what they say on the Leading Hotels of the World website (there’s still no info on Patina Hotels’ own site). But should you try to book, you’ll find reservations are only open from September 1. Perhaps they’re hoping to open up the August rooms nearer the time. Perhaps they’re playing it safe. Or perhaps they enjoy making us wait longer.

Either way, there’s a nice surprise – a really nice surprise – with the rates.

Hyatt Centric Chicago Will Open This Weekend (South Beach Coming Up Soon, Too)

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 100 Monroe St. [map], Chicago, IL, United States, 60603

That was crazy fast.

After Hyatt Hotels announced Hyatt Centric Hotels, their new millennial brand in late January, they will now open their first Centric hotel on Sunday--Hyatt Centric Chicago The Loop on Monroe Street.

Rooms are available to book for April 26 for $229 a night. That's for a 300-sq.ft. king room with modern minimalist decor in warm colors (Notice the "floating" cabinet.) The room rate includes complimentary in-room coffee and WiFi. Other top amenities include the Hyatt Grand beds, a 40" TV, iPod docking station and windows that open.

Downstairs the hotel will have a restaurant from Chef Roland Liccioni called Cochon Volant Bakery, Brasserie and Bar, which as the name reveals is an all-day spot serving "gourmet cheeses, fresh baked goods, fruits, organic juices, to-go foods and wines imported from France." The hotel's lobby also features a interesting "statement" piece behind the front desk from local South Loop artist Francine Turk.

In short, the place looks very cosmopolitan and chic, almost like Park Hyatt-lite.

But that's not all on the Hyatt Centric front.

Few things are more exciting than a swanky new hotel in Thailand, but one thing that definitely is is a swanky new all-suite hotel in Thailand. Thai service + Thai food + lots of room to enjoy it = bliss.

The Akyra Manor Chiang Mai (the latest to join the SLH group, was due to open May 1, but has now been pushed back to July 1. You’ll just have to wait 8 weeks longer for its resort-in-a-city style to be unleashed.

What is resort-in-a-city style? Well, it’s in the middle of Chiang Mai, on the trendy Nimmanhaemin Soi, AKA Coffee Street; and yet each suite is centered round its own private “courtyard” (actually a balcony), complete with hot tub. Yes, your own private outdoor space with hot tub in the city center.

Hotel Gotham Has Batted into Manchester

April 15, 2015 at 8:55 AM | by | Comment (1)

Forget Hotel Football, this is the Manchester opening we’ve been most excited about this year – Hotel Gotham, which opened last week in the old Midland Bank building on King Street.

The banking theme runs through the hotel (as well as the Gotham City theme, thesexy Downton theme and the “sexiest hotel in Europe” theme), according to Mancunian Matters, with moneybags on the laundry bags, walls embossed with typewriters and “gold ingot toiletry stands” – for real.

From Proust to Warhol to You... Les Bains Paris is Open

Superior room.

Paris is on fire right now – right after news of the Ritz opening reservations in June, we noticed Les Bains has quietly opened its doors.

As we told you before, the building originally opened as a bath house – Marcel Proust’s favorite, no less. In the 1970s, a newbie designer called Philippe Starck turned it into a nightclub, and it swiftly became the place to party in Paris. Then, it fell into disrepair, occasionally hosting artist residences. And now, it’s a hotel. Or, rather, hotel, restaurant and club, according to Paris Match. (Starck’s famous black-and-white checkered club flooring is now part of the restaurant.)

Florence's Newest Hotel is for Renaissance Men and Women

Florence is so hot right now with its recent openings, and just in time for the heady summer season, here’s a new hotel right on the Arno river: Leone Blu.

Cast aside all mental images of Radisson Blus and chain hotels – this is a delicate 9-room, family-owned place in a 16th century palazzo. Palazzo Ricasoli (built by one of the main Florentine families) has been a hotel before – in the 19th century it was the oddly named Grand Hotel de New York. Now, it’s equally grand but a lot more Italian, with the rooms curated by local designer Piero Brarda.

This isn’t your average hotel – the palazzo is still owned by the family who built it, and your host is Baroness Maria Teresa Ricasoli Firidolfi who, amazingly, promises to treat you as if you’re at a friend’s house. There’s a butler and a concierge, who’ll do everything from unpacking your luggage to booking your Uffizi tickets.

Join Musical Orders at the UK's Latest Private Members' Club Hotel

April 3, 2015 at 9:30 AM | by | Comments (0)

There’s a trend emerging for 2015: private members' club hotels. Hot on the heels of the Hospital, the Arts Club and Soho House Istanbul comes The Convent, a country retreat in the Cotswolds, near Stroud.

The Convent – in an old, Grade II listed convent, set in 22 acres of land – is already a members’ club popular with the music industry (its live music venue probably has a part to play in that). It soft opened last year, but now it’s ready for a full unveiling.

How Greece's New Ikos Resorts Are Making All Inclusive More Inclusive

  Site Where: Halkidiki, Greece

A while back, we talked about Ikos Resorts a new, two-strong European hotel brand that was planning a novel take on the all-inclusive concept. Well, the first property – Ikos Oceania, in Halkidiki, Greece – has now opened, and we have a little more information about what they have in store.

The “Infinite Lifestyle” concept revolves around the two major additions to the standard hotel bill: eating and spa-ing. The spa deal depends on your taking the deluxe package, which gets you one treatment (and this is a fancy Anne Semonin spa, so it’s a fancy treatment), along with a designated pool, area of the beach and dinner on the beach one night.

But it’s the food offerings that will really set it apart.
