12 New Hotels for Amsterdam

June 4, 2015 at 8:36 AM | by | ()

Every month, we tell you which hotel openings you need to know about (and which, inevitably, miss their deadlines). While we have a healthy list of arrivals around the world, there are a few places that are either consistently popular or having a bit of a hotel moment, so “new hotels for…” gives you a rundown of the openings you will want to know about for a particular destination.

Even on our Master List of Hotel Openings we highlighted Amsterdam as enjoying a bit of a renaissance – and so much has happened since then. Last year, Waldorf Astoria was the talk of the town, which followed the likes of Andaz and the Conservatorium. But in 2015, and the next few years, the Dutch capital is picking up steam, adding a range of interesting hotels. Tallying them up quickly took us to 12, and there will be more:

Mezzanine room

The time has come. Soho House Istanbul ever so quietly opened last week! There’s a gorgeous new website, with some incredible photos.

The rooms are booking up fast - though there's been no official announcement yet, we called yesterday to be told that this weekend was fully sold out. The first date they had available was Sunday – 22 March. For non-members, the starting rate is €200 + 8% tax. That’s a March special offer, for one of the small rooms – they won’t guarantee a room type until check in, but it could be a Tiny, Small or Small Plus room. (Rates for members are lower – they start at €150.)

The days are getting longer, the weather’s getting more bearable and the countdown is on for Soho Farmhouse, the new country house hotel by Soho House, which is opening in Oxfordshire in June.

We were originally doubtful that it’d make its predicted summer opening date, what with having to be constructed from scratch, but turns out we had no reason to doubt – the Farmhouse now has a website, and although it’s only a holder page and reservations aren’t yet open, it definitely feels on track.

They're still being rather coy about the details, though the numbers are now coming in: it’s a 93 acre site, and there will be 40 cabins of one, two and three beds, all of which are on the water (there are two lakes on property). In addition, the farmhouse itself will have seven bedrooms, and there will be a five-bedroom cottage. So far, so Babington House, with the variety of accommodation options.

Soho House Chicago

Amsterdam has quietly been upping its hotel scene in the past few months.

Recently, we've told you about the upcoming Generator Hotel/Hostel, The Hoxton, two new Sir Hotels, the Hyatt Regency, The W and Element Hotels, and the millennial-friendly Student Hotel. That's in addition to recent notable openings like the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam (last May) and the Andaz Amsterdam (late 2012.)

And now comes Soho House.

Pizza East at Soho House Chicago Delivers...on Cauliflower

January 20, 2015 at 2:39 PM | by | ()

We stepped out on the Virgin Chicago during our stay last weekend with a visit to the other new British import in town, Soho House Chicago in the West Loop nabe. But it was only for dinner and drinks. We didn't stay the night. Promise.

Having drooled over the pictures of Pizza East at The Shoreditch House in London (also a Soho House property), we were eager to get a piece of the wood-oven pizza pie stateside at Pizza East Chicago. But as it turns out, despite the restaurant name and despite its location in a city known for its deep dish, we actually preferred Pizza East's two starters to the main margherita pie ($16.)

Stop Everything and Look at These Mindblowing Videos of Soho House Istanbul

Sometimes a property comes along that is so mindblowingly different, superlatively amazing and completely unique that all you can do is let that mouth of yours fall unattractively open. This is one of those times.

Seriously, we just found footage of the new Soho House Istanbul. And all we can say is, if you thought the existing Soho House properties are good, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

It’s going to be the biggest property so far, with a whopping 87 bedrooms, Cecconi’s restaurant with “courtyard garden”, two – yes, two – rooftop pools (of which one at least is overlooking the Bosphorus, according to the video) and a nightclub, as well as the screening room, gym and Cowshed spa you’d expect.

But by far the best bit is the building itself: Palazzo Corpi in Beyoğlu, built in 1882 for a Genoese family, and then taken over (uh, quelle surprise?) by the US consulate 25 years later – the first US-owned diplomatic premises in the world (more on the US links here #history). Look at this video we stumbled on (ok, we didn't stumble, we were doing a pretty thorough stalking job on the property) – and be prepared to be wowed. (Sorry, privacy settings mean it's viewable but not embeddable.)

Your Early Christmas Present: Soho House Farmhouse Will Open In June

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Great Tew, Oxfordshire
December 2, 2014 at 8:25 AM | by | ()

When news broke over the summer of a Soho Farmhouse hotel in Oxfordshire, we predicted it’d be a couple of years off, given that they had to build the thing from scratch.

We were wrong: Soho House Farmhouse will be opening in June 2015!!! #squeal #swoon #reconfiguresadventcalendarimmediately.

The evidence? This job advert for an HR manager we found browsing the Soho House website this weekend.

It doesn’t divulge much more info – it’ll be “in the heart of” the 125 acre Great Tew Estate, the log cabins (rooms) will be “spread around lakes”, while there will be two larger properties for groups, the Cottage and the main farmhouse. It looks like there will be a screening room, the Electric Barn, as well as the Boathouse pool and, of course, the Cowshed spa. It sounds heavenly. No word on rates, but Soho House properties are generally pretty reasonable for what they are - even for non-members like us (REMEMBER: you don't have to be a member to stay, however many shifty people 'offer' to 'help you' with membership in the comments).

Inside The Soho House Chicago, Not Just for Members Only

A few weeks ago, Soho House opened their newest, exclusive hideaway in Chicago. We finally went to check it out for ourselves and we think, this might just be the one of the best hotels in Chicago.

The property has 40 bedrooms, three restaurants (all open to the public), a private cinema and a retro-styled gym with a vintage boxing ring and aerial yoga classes. Soho House is also located on a back street in the West Loop neighborhood behind the hottest restaurant precinct in town. (Since you can clearly work off whatever you ate the night before, there's no reason not to take a few steps to some of the eateries found on Randolph Street.)

Checking In On: The Soho House Chicago

The Soho House Chicago has been open for a week now and since we're still, um, working on our Chicago travel plans, we thought we'd do a cursory check of recent internet reactions.

The hotel surprisingly lacks a TripAdvisor page, so we're unable to find out the nitty gritty details of like quirky elevators or loud vents or issues with WiFi. But here's what we've gleamed about the new hotel from both the mainstream media and the (probably more important) social media:

New York Times: There's a custom, on-site boxing ring coming soon.

New York Post: Nine different products from Cowshed line the showers.

Eater Chicago: Go inside the Chicken Shop and Pizza East, both London-based restaurants that have spun off to Chicago.

Chicago Mag: The "ultra-indulgent" treatment from the Cowshed Spa is actually just a pedicure.

The Only Thing Better Than A Soho House Hotel: A Soho Farmhouse Hotel

July 31, 2014 at 8:30 AM | by | ()

Just when you thought Soho House was all about quietly colonizing the world, with Chicago on track to open next month, comes the welcome news that it’s not neglecting its origins. No, not the forthcoming City of London property, but something much better – another English country house hotel to rival Babington House.

The Soho House Chicago Will Open on August 11 at $240 a Night

We told you back in March that the Soho House Chicago would be opening in August and well, wouldn't you know? The Chicago spinoff of the London members-only club--with hotel rooms attached--is actually opening next month, on August 11 to be exact.

Located in the West Loop nabe in an old warehouse that was once home to the Chicago Belting Factory, the Soho House Chicago will now offer 40 rooms, ranging in sizes Small, Medium and Medium Plus.

The small rooms, which are going for $240 a night on opening night, start at 300-sq.ft. and include free WiFi; complimentary tea, coffee and homemade biscuits; and Cowshed products in the bathroom. The website also says a hair straightener will be included with the hair dryer. Score one for the curly-haired ladies out there.

The Medium rooms offer 450-sq.ft. of space while the Medium Plus rooms bump up to a generous 650-sq.ft of space with a bathtub in the bathroom. (The other rooms only have showers.) Rates for these rooms are going for $350 on opening night. Sadly, there are only illustrations of the rooms online and not real photographs. Hopefully, we can get some of those for you to peep real soon.
