Another day, another hotel opening…or rather, another hotel that's about to open.

We got a sneak peek at the mysterious Archer Hotel in NYC over the summer and last month, we learned a little bit more about their house playing cards. But we've been waiting for a legit opening date. We first thought it was February, then we were told "Spring" before we discovered reservations would be taken for June.

Now it turns out late April is when the hotel will open its doors. And an exact opening date is not too far behind. However, reservations are still being taken for June 3 on the hotel's website for $359 for a classic king (down about a hundred dollars since we last checked.) But the website should open up for earlier stays once the opening date is solidified. We'll be waiting.

Opening This Month: New Hotels for January 2014

January 13, 2014 at 10:01 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sick of all the hotel openings stories yet? No? Good, because here's another one!

Finding a hotel room is easy. Simply go on the Internet or use your smartphone and voila! You're booked.

But if you are only interested in new hotels, then that's a different story. Luckily, you have us. And we're obsessed with new hotels. Here's a list of hotels that have opened or are opening this month (and a few that aren't going to make it.) Got a new hotel to add? Send it to us!

HOTELS OPENING IN JANUARY 2014
· LOEWS REGENCY: At last, the power breakfast spot on Park Avenue is re-opening on January 16th after closing for nearly two years for a mega-makeover. Rates for a luxury room king, shown above, are going for $479 a night.

· HILTON GARDEN INN CENTRAL PARK: Not to be outdone by the two Marriott brands that opened near Central Park recently (see below), Hilton is opening a Hilton Garden Inn on W. 54th Street and Broadway on January 27th. Rates on opening night are going for just $139 a night.

The Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World Will Open on August 3 at $645 a Night

Just after we released out Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings, we received an actual opening date for the hotly anticipated Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World.

Starting on August 3, two adults and two children can spend the night in a Golden Oak View room for *just* $645 a night. You also have the option of choosing one king bed or two double beds. There's also a queen-size sofa bed in the room and a crib can be placed in the room as well.

Lake and park view rooms cost a little bit more at $695 and $795 a night, respectively. If 500-sq.ft. isn't enough space, the Golden Oak suite can be booked for $1,050 a night which has a separate sitting area. (Most rooms, if not all, have their own furnished balconies from which you can gaze out at the Disney World and other parks.)

That price might sound a little steep for a family vacay but the hotel is running a "Stay Longer" offer which will give you a third night free if you book two consecutive nights. While we're not quite ready to brave Orlando in the August heat, that's quite a tempting offer for a new Four Seasons in Disney World.

Ace Hotels had a rough month last month, but they rebounded with the opening of the American Trade Hotel in Panama the other week and now comes news that the long-awaited Ace Hotel Los Angeles will open a tad bit early on January 6, just in time for the Golden Globes. Previously, the hotel was set to open on January 15.

We found a "Small" room open that night for $289 a night. That includes a queen bed, flat screen television, full-stocked minibar, a custom Revo Radio, free internet and Rudy's toiletries. A "Medium" room is going for $299 while a "Medium With Terrace" room is $319. (Room photos are below.)

Those are big increases from the initial opening rate of $129 that we found (and booked) last month for January 15th. We guess the hotel is already cashing in on Awards Season, which kicks off on January 13th with the Golden Globes. But who cares. The Ace is finally opening in Los Angeles!

The Hilton Garden Inn Will Open Near Central Park on January 5th

Lately, there's been a bit of hotel resurgence in the Central Park area. There's the Quin, the Viceroy, the Westhouse and a 1 Hotel is expected to next year too. But those are all luxury hotels with rates starting around $400 a night. Which is why the news of a Hilton Garden Inn in the area has us, and our wallets, feeling relieved.

The 401-room hotel will open at 237 W. 54th Street, about six blocks south of the park between 8th and 7th Avenues. It will also be the largest Hilton Garden Inn in North America.

Right now the opening date is set at January 5th but we couldn't find a room open online until February 4th for $152 a night. That's for a room with one king Serta bed, a large work desk, a 40-inch HDTV and a "hospitality" center with a microwave, refrigerator and coffee/tea maker. Oh and the WiFi is freeeeeeee. There's also a king deluxe room with a private walk-out terrace that's just $239 a night ($203 if you pay in advance.)

Of course, these rates are for February in NYC, typically a low season. We fully expect these to go way up once summer comes around.

Archer Hotel Shows its Beautiful Face (and Opening Night Rates)

UPDATE: A rep reached out to us to say this: "we are still projecting a Q1 opening, although a firm date has not been announced. Our current booking date is conservative by design and will most certainly be moved up as the hotel’s completion date is finalized."

It's been a while since we last checked in on Archer Hotel, one of the many upcoming Garment District hotels, so, when we walked by the other evening, we were pleased to see it had emerged from underneath the scaffolding that had been up all summer.

The Mohegan Sun Hotel at Poconos Down May Have Trouble Getting Folks To Leave Their Room

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 1280 Highway 315 [map], Wilkes-Barre, PA, United States, 18702

The Mohegan Sun at Poconos Downs in Pennslyvania has been open for seven years now but tonight the casino is finally hitting the jackpot--with a 238-room, seven-story hotel and spa.

Room options at the new hotel range from standard king and double queen guest rooms to king suites and king and queen bay suites. But no matter the room category, all rooms come equipped with iPad minis which feature in-room dining menus and ordering systems as well as a function to control the TV and also to read newspaper downloads and browse the internet. Plus, the hotel is promising "lightning fast" WiFi. Best of all, it's free. Um, yeah, we're not so sure people are going to leave the room for a while. They might want to spend time fooling around...with the iPad.

While the hotel is opening tonight (the Spa Sapphire will debut next month), we couldn't find rooms available on their website until November 19th for $139 a night. Seems a little pricey for mid-week but unlike Vegas, there is no $25 resort fee. Fun fact: one of HotelChatter's very first reviews 10 YEARS AGO was of the Mohegan Sun Hotel in Connecticut.

The Redbury South Beach Will Open Just in Time for Art Basel

Great news for Art Basel goers and Miami lovers alike--The Redbury South Beach will open on December 1st, just a few days before the massive art fair takes over the city on December 5.

We've been eagerly anticipating The Redbury's arrival, not just because we love the original Redbury in Hollywood so much, but because the hotel, whose mission is to provide you with a "home away from home" will offering some crazy sexy cool amenities and services like Crosley record players with a collection of vinyl curated by Capitol Records and Universal Music Enterprises, 24-hour room service from Tony Mantuano's Lorenzo restaurant downstairs, complimentary BMW house car service with a three-mile radius, complimentary WiFI, 24-hour Redbury Hosts service and perhaps most importantly, VIP access to the sbe Collection.

This ultra-perk gets you inside the nightclubs, bars, restos, pools and beaches at the SLS Hotel and The Raleigh which is directly across the street as well as any other sbe restaurant or bar, including the Hyde lounge at the American Airlines arena.

While we couldn't find one of the hotel's 69 rooms available on opening night, we did find a room on December 16th for $221. Not bad for these peppy hotel rooms with a real residential feel and access to the sbe wonderland.

Palo Alto's Upcoming Epiphany Hotel Will Have Its Own Technology Concierge

  Site Where: 180 Hamilton Avenue [map], Palo Alto, CA , United States, 94301

When we compiled our Master Openings list this year, we had a spot reserved in Palo Alto, Calif. for The Epiphany Hotel from Joie de Vivre Hotels. The hotel was supposed to open over the summer but now it's set to open next year, on April 1st. But already, the hotel is positioning itself as the must-stay hotel in Silicon Valley. In their own words:

Get wired. In the heart of downtown Palo Alto, surrounded by the hottest VC firms, the fastest-growing companies, plus the creative dynamism of Stanford University—this is where you need to be staying.

Clearly, the hotel's WiFi is going to be free and fast and full of plenty of bandwidth. The hotel is also promising the services of its own technology concierge. Sweet! No doubt this concierge better know his or her tech specs before starting the job. Yet given the hotel's location near Stanford, we don't think this will be too hard.

But what else can we expect from The Epiphany in regards to more traditional hotel amenities? For starters, there's 24-hour room service, regular concierge services, pet-friendly rooms, Frette linens, Malin & Goetz toiletries, Illy espresso machines, honor bar and dry bar, a work desk with ergonomic chair, 47" Samsung TV (55" ones in the suites) and a G-link iPod docking stations which will wirelessly stream movies and video games to guest rooms TVs. Housekeeping will also do a turndown service and will use green cleaning products too.

LA's The Line Hotel to Open on December 11th

On the heels of the Ace LA's opening announcement, comes another new hotel that will open this winter---The Line Hotel in Koreatown.

The 388-room hotel was supposed to open this past summer but instead, it looks like the hotel will open on December 11th with a special opening rate of $195 a night.

Done as a collaboration between the Sydell Group, chef Roy Choi, nightlife brother-duo Mark and Jonnie Houston, and interior designer Sean Knibb, the hotel sports not just a nifty logo and a killer location in K-town but also a rooftop pool deck, a lounge hosted by the Houston Brothers, a POT restaurant and lobby bar from Choi featuring late night street eats, the Commissary greenhouse serving fruits and vegetables in salads and juice formats, as well as delivery service from the hotel with "the ease that mirrors a pizza shop or NYC Chinese take-out."

There are several room categories and clearly the ones to book are the ones with the view of the Hollywood Hills. Amenities include floor to ceiling windows, a large desk and seating area with Negril Chairs by Knibb, Baxter of California toiletries, bathrobes, curated minibar with American & Korean drinks and snacks, original artwork and best of all, free WiFi. Looks like our holiday hotel wish list is coming true a little early this year.

The Ace in DTLA in early August

Good news has come for hipsters who wait--The Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles is now taking reservations for JANUARY 15, 2014 and beyond. But there's a catch.

You can't make these reservations just by going to the hotel website. Instead, you can only make a reservation through a link that was sent out to Ace's e-mailing list, called The A-List. Oh don't worry, we've got the link for you right HERE. Even better, the Ace DTLA is offering a special rate for opening night--just $129 for a small or medium room. A medium room with a terrace is just $149.

Some other good things to know about the Ace--WiFi is free (woot!), pets under 25 pounds are accepted for $25 (woof!), valet parking is available (not sure for how much yet) and all rooms are non-smoking rooms (whew!). The amenities will also include Rudy's Toiletries, Pearl+ soaps and a Revo Radio as well as a flat-screen and a fully-stocked minibar. We're so there, will you be?
