For those looking to kickoff the spring season in style look no further than Starwood, as once again it’s time for their annual Suite Week promotion over in New York City. The fun started earlier this week and runs through April 7, as room packages, discounts, and other goodies call all be yours—and at a discount.
Offers include a 30% discount on rates, complimentary WiFi, early check-in and late check-out, and plenty of other goodies depending on the property. Of course getting away now would be great, but even if you book now during the promotion you can enjoy the fun later—through March 24, 2016.
Many of the Starwood properties in New York City are getting in on the fun, so think of spots like W New York locations from Union Square to Downtown, plenty of Westin prosperities, and even The St. Regis New York—complete with that new Bentley fleet. Even properties in Hoboken and Jersey City are getting in on the fun as well.
In addition to the discount on rates those visiting the W New York can score a 30% discount on all Bliss Spa services, a Bliss welcome gift, two complimentary signature cocktails, complimentary breakfast for two, and even free parking. Other properties are offering up things like welcome drinks, discounted tickets, and free breakfasts for two.
So there you go—looking for a suite and some savings in NYC? Give a click over to your favorite Starwood property, and enter those credit card digits.

We’ve seen London hotel rooms with balconies, terraces, and outright gardens, but retractable roofs that turn it into an indoor/outdoor space where you can still watch TV even if a little British rain makes an appearance?
That’s a new one we think, on offer from May onwards at The Marylebone Hotel, when three new suites – the Marylebone, the Wimpole, and the Harley – will come online. Above a shot of the Marylebone suite’s terrace, the largest at 860 square feet inside and 430 square feet underneath that retractable roof. And yes, that is a fireplace you spot underneath the TV.
Yes, we did say inside two of the top suites at The Peninsula Paris, and we will take you on a full tour, but we had to start with this: a shot from the private rooftop garden of La Suite Katara, a vast outdoor space with knee-buckling views of Paris, including the replica of l’Oiseau Blanc (the French bi-plane that disappeared during its attempt to complete the first transatlantic flight) suspended next to the restaurant of the same name and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
Part of a trio (the third being the Historic Suite), La Suite Katara and La Suite Peninsula are the latest addition that round out the total of 200 rooms and suites in the 1908 grand hotel on Avenue Kléber. Ready to see what $22,000 and up a night gets you in the City of Light? Here we go.
Back in November, InterContinental Hotels reopened the former Ritz-Carlton in Sydney’s Double Bay as its second property in the city, following a multi-year closure and renovation of the hotel. Many a hotel in the central business district, including the ‘other’ InterContinental, can give you the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House views the city is famous for, but back in the day the likes of Madonna, Bill Clinton, and Princess Diana all opted to stay here instead. We wondered why, so we made the 15-minute cab ride to Double Bay and peeked inside the Royal Suite to find out.
Set on the hotel’s fifth floor, the Royal Suite is a one-bedroom suite with living room, study, bedroom, ensuite bathroom, powder room, dining room, pantry, and option for a connecting bedroom. The contemporary design really worked for us, with pale herringbone hardwood floors, white walls, and dark wood – but the real draw is in the direction of the light streaming in through the arched windows.

This is definitely not your mother’s penthouse suite, but for its unique design, funky features, and creative amenities, could be the “mother of all penthouses” for the hip (or hip hop) Manhattan lifestyle seeker.
The zany world of hotel penthouse design just got a new entry and the bar is now officially raised. Dream Hotels, the artsy brand that dares to go where no one else goes, has unveiled the new GuestHouse at Dream Downtown. With its vibrant design and endless amenities, sleeping is probably not high on the list of things to do.

After hearing about the special Signature Suites inside the Loews Regency New York since last summer, including one designed by Nate Berkus, this hotel design nerd was pretty excited to finally get to explore every high-end nook and cranny at an event hosted by Loews earlier this week. Here are her reactions:

Hotel Texas in Fort Worth
Fort Worth is well-known for its friendly rivalry with Dallas, one that pins the country feel of the former against the modern development of the latter. But there's a ying and yang within Fort Worth itself as well. Downtown Fort Worth is developing nicely into a mini-metro, yet the Stockyards remain frozen in time, a tribute to the city's origins as a town of cowboys and cattle.
Experiencing this contrast between city and cowboy when visiting Fort Worth is a must, and your hotel selection can go a long way towards achieving this.
The last time we heard about the Greenwich in TriBeCa, it was offering to bring you a Christmas tree direct to your suite. Now, more
suite sweet news: the hotel has opened a new, top suite: the TriBeCa Penthouse.
We said over the summer that entry-level Luxury Kings at the newly renovated Loews Regency Hotel in New York are a pretty excellent room choice already, but now, as the hotel wraps up its overhaul, it’s adding more choice with six designer-led Signature Suites.
You guessed right that one of those designers is Oprah’s own go-to guy Nate Berkus, who redid a 1,000 sq ft one-bedroom suite on the 21st floor. Above the bedroom, which we have to say, like most of his designs, we like a whole lot. It’s contemporary, uncluttered, and with interesting patterns, colors, and materials. More shots of the suite, and others, below.

Truthfully, we don’t know if it would be possible to make One&Only Reethi Rah any more luxurious, being the all-villa tropical-island getaway (and celeb-magnet) that it is.
The resort is trying nonetheless, introducing a new accommodation category that removes the understandably fundamental dilemma between wanting your own private pool, which confines you to staying on land, and wanting to see the Indian Ocean right underneath you, which means no pool.
The solution? Overwater pool villas, because of course.
The room decor at The Cromwell is eclectically detailed, mixing a lot of modern with a bit of faux-vintage items. But we were impressed with the luxury touches like the welcome beverages that are given to all guests (we chose sangria), the high-tech Toto Neorest toilet, the Eataly snacks in the pantry and the flat-iron at the vanity.
There was also morning coffee available on our floor at the elevator bank. (No almond milk or iced coffee though, #firstworldproblems.) We especially loved the bright pink Muk Hair toiletries, which left our skin and hair silky soft.
The Valley Ho Hotel in Scottsdale was once-upon-a-time a Hollywood hangout back in the 50s. It has been awarded up and down for its vibe and style, and while it may not have the celebrity status it once did, this week's opening of its new high-end suite shows it still has plenty of star power.
The Presidential Loft Suite is essentially a large apartment with 1,500 square-feet of interior space and a ridiculous 550 square-feet of balcony/outdoor space. Featuring two floors, the downstairs level has a living room, dining room, half bathroom, and a full kitchen. The bedroom is upstairs, with a walk-in closet, washer/dryer, and terrazo-tiled bathroom.
