Hotel Indigo Has Landed in Newark

  Site Where: 810 Broad St [map], Newark, NJ, United States, 07102

Just over two years ago, Newark got its first new hotel in four decades. And it looks like the fever is catching, because Hotel Indigo has just opened up in downtown Newark, making it the third in the New York area.

The theme is “modern industry” (tanneries, breweries and innovators hung around here in the 19th century), so there’s a mosaic tiled ticker tape (Thomas Edison’s invention) in the lobby, a bank vault-turned pizza oven in the restaurant, ALVA, and exposed brick walls in the bedrooms, giving it that authentic industrial vibe (the building itself is from 1912).

Budapest's New Music-Themed Hotel Will Make You Trill with Delight

It has kerts. It has snow. It has a Buda and a Pest. But you know what was really lacking in Hungary’s capital?

A music-themed hotel.

Welcome to the world Aria Hotel, which opens in Budapest March 15. A 19th-century palazzo in Pest, near St Stephen’s basilica, it was originally a bank, but will now be a 49-room hotel themed around “the universal love of music”. But don’t take that in a tacky way. This is not Vegas-style hotel; it’s actually a project by Henry Kallan, the man behind the Library Hotel and Casablanca in NYC and the Aria in Prague.

Inside and All Around the Rooms at the Dean Dublin

Fab amenities: check. Fantastic restaurant: check. But how do the rooms at the Dean Dublin measure up?

We stayed in a Punk Bunk - one of the smaller pod rooms, only with bunk beds. There’s a double bed on the bottom, and a single on the top. The rooms are 12.6sqm. Yes, that’s tiny – there’s the bed area, a teeny desk area, and the fridge and minibar stuff in the corner. Then there’s a narrow passageway taking you to the door and the bathroom. We had one big suitcase, and one small, and it was a squeeze.

But having said that, it was comfortable. Obscenely so. The enclosed bed was slightly too short for our 6ft frame, but the mattress was the comfiest we’ve slept on in months – strip-the-sheets-and-write-down-the-name comfy (King Koil Club Class, since you ask).

The Reverie Saigon Is a Vietnamese Dream

  Site Where: 22-36 Nguyen Hue Boulevard, 57-69F Dong Khoi Street, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, District 1
January 2, 2015 at 8:25 AM | by | Comments (0)

Just in time for the New Year! It’s another Times Square hotel, but not Manhattan; this one is in Ho Chi Minh City, aka Saigon. The Reverie Saigon – the latest addition to the Leading Hotels of the World group – will open February 1.

It’s part of the modern Times Square building in District 1, taking over the 27th-39th floors of the building, and has 286 rooms. Don’t expect traditional Vietnam looks, though – it’s been designed by four Italians, who’ve lent it an opulent, almost Venetian feel. Rooms look very different from each other – you can go from an over the top frilly headboard and gilt mirror combo (above)…

A corridor

Last time we heard about Generator Paris, it was with very basic renderings and an uncertain 2015 opening date.

Well, Christmas surprise – things have moved quickly. It’s now taking bookings from 1 February.

The building is, of course, an old office block in the 10th arrondissement, 15 minutes walk from the Eurostar at the Gare du Nord. It’ll be the biggest Generator so far with 950 beds. We only have renderings, so far, but there are more of them, now:

Cuba Will Celebrate Its New Year and New Start with a New Melia

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Jardines del Rey, Cayo Coco, Morón, Cuba, 69400

Could there be better timing for your opening announcement? Just as Obama resumes relations with Cuba, Meliá announces the January opening of its 27th hotel on the island, the Meliá Jardines del Rey – a five star, all-inclusive on Cayo Coco.

The behemoth hotel (the largest on Cayo Coco) sits on Playa Flamenco, one of the newest stretches of beach to be colonized by hotels, and is built “in the style of a sugar plantation” with 1176 rooms dotted about 25 buildings, some of which overlook the Caribbean. A central building will house the main buffet and bar, but there will be a “boulevard” with nine themed restaurants, handicraft stalls, sports facilities and pools. At night, there will be six bars and your typical all-inclusive live music.

Real-life Photos from Inside the Ritz-Carlton Bali, Now Open

Not only did a kind tipster point us to The Ritz-Carlton Bali missing from our list of hotels opening this month, he also provided us with a set of photos of the days-old hotel. We first looked at the beachfront / cliff-side hotel last summer, now we have much more detail on the return of Ritz-Carlton to the Indonesian island and can compare rendering to reality. Speaking of Ritz-Carlton, Bali, and renderings, we also have a whole bunch of new ones for Mandapa, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve that will open in Ubud next summer.

Our tipster was at the resort a day after the first guests arrived, but noted that while it looked stunning, quite a few rooms and the spa weren’t ready. The above shot is taken from the top of the cliff overlooking the majority of the resort down to the beach, and construction is still visible on the left, although in the aerial view we saw last year all there was meant to be were trees.

Check Out the Stocking-Top Beds at Beijing's Newest Boutique Hotel

China, bless its little cotton socks, is not a country that we’ve traditionally associated with a thriving boutique hotel scene (the recently opened Jade Gallery Boutique Hotel in Chengdu, for instance, has an onsite casino!). But while the rest of the world busies itself with the millennial market, it looks like China is focusing on its boutique properties.

The latest to open is the Sofu Hotel in Beijing. It’s a fun location, on Huguosi Hutong (Street), a traditionally styled shopping street, which is also home to one of Beijing’s most famous snack bars.

It's Time to Riff on the 1980s in Chelsea's Newest Hotel

Last time we met Riff Hotel Chelsea, the 80s-themed hotel in Chelsea (NY not LON), it was getting ready to break open the bright colors and go all "retro-contemporary".

And now it’s here! The Chelsea Star is no more; the hotel silently riffed into its new incarnation earlier this month (no big statement opening? Not very 80s). All rooms are now renovated, and they’ve even installed a (temporary) 12ft high Santa in the courtyard. The verdict?

Say 'Ciao' to Milan's Latest Business District Hotels

Where: Milan, Italy
December 16, 2014 at 8:30 AM | by | Comments (0)

It may not be your first choice for an Italian trip… yet. But Milan is going to be so hot next year with the Expo Milano 2015, which will draw people from all around the world.

In preparation for the Expo, expect lots of hotel openings and renovations. Following the man-meat of Moxy, two of the first to come through are the B&B Hotel Milano Cenisio Garibaldi, which supposedly opened last week (though it’s not showing availability till 1 January), and the Lagare Hotel Milano Centrale which is scheduled for February.

Your Newest Hot Hotel Room Will Be a London Hospital Bed

Hospital (n)
An institution providing medical and surgical treatment and nursing care for sick or injured people

That’s not what the Hospital Club in London is, though. They will care for you, of course – care for you beautifully, in fact. You don’t have to be sick to go there, but you do have to be a member.

Or, at least, you did have to be a member. Because from January, the hospital is getting a hotel wing, and it’s open to us all. Just as you were starting to think Soho House was the only private members’ club that mattered!

A new boutique hotel has opened in Tel Aviv and, from the looks of it, it's a keeper. The Norman Tel Aviv, in the heart of "White City," blends its local history with modern art and design, while taking a much hipper approach to elegance. Just the way we like it.
