If, like us, you’re a sucker for tall buildings, you’ll be all excited about the opening of the Shanghai Tower, which will top out at 2073 feet – the second tallest structure in the world – when it opens in a few months in Pudong with 121 floors. There will be a 120th-floor observation deck, offices, restaurants, cafes “sky lobbies” (areas open to the public) and, oh yes, a five star hotel.
Will it be Shangri-La? Mandarin Oriental? No! It’s one you might not immediately think of, Jin Jiang International Hotels, a major Chinese group. The Shanghai Tower J-Hotel will occupy floors 84-110 of the skyscraper, with the lobby on floor 101.
The ball drop in Times Square is so last decade—you know it's true when it's all about gimmicks like putting Jersey Shore guidette Snooki inside of the lit-up ball, hamster-style. The New Year's Eve tradition that's fistpump-free for 2011 is the first-time pineapple drop at the Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu.

From today until Sunday 28 February, you can book a room on weekends from £149 ($233), or Sunday to Thursday for £199 ($312). It’s quite a hefty saving – at normal prices, a stay this Saturday night would cost you £290 and up.
It’s sales time! And just when the shop ones are trailing off (unless you’re in the mood for everyone else’s rejects), London’s Landmark Hotel has started its own sale.
It may not be quite on the same scale of The Hoxton’s £1 offer, but it’s still not bad – stay before 30 April, and you can get a weekend room for £140 ($200). At £229 ($327), weekdays are a bit more, but you’re still saving half the price on the official rates – although the 20% off spa treatments that they’re also offering could gobble up your spare change…
The sale ends on Sunday, so move quick. After all, you wouldn’t want to end up in the Cromwell Crown…
