Where else should a hotel suite filled with American art, furniture and decor open but Washington D.C.?
The Park Hyatt in the capital city recently unveiled a special Made in the USA Suite in conjunction with the new exhibit of the same name at The Phillips Collection, which will be on display through August 31st.
Inside the suite are five giclee reproductions of the museum's American art masterworks including Marsden Hartley’s Off the Banks at Night; Arthur G. Dove’s Red Sun and Peppino Mangravite’s Political Exiles. The suite also includes some American-made furniture such as a timber rocking chair (made in Vermont) and artisanal items from the museum's gift shop like a spiral wrap bowl (Rhode Island), a WUD martini glass (Colorado) and stackable wooden blocks (Washington state.) Anonymously modern Hyatt decor no more! We kinda think all Park Hyatt rooms should get these little touches.
Guests who book the suite, which starts at just $399 a night, also get the following:
As part of the ongoing celebrations of the city's centennial, five Beverly Hills hotels are particpating in a Suite 100 promotion where you can choose from five special anniversary suites reflective of different decades from the past 100 years. The Montage Beverly Hills, L'ermitage Beverly Hills, The Peninsula Beverly Hills and The Beverly Hilton are all on board, but here is an in-depth look at The Beverly Hills Hotel's The Golden Age of Hollywood Inspired by Marilyn Monroe suite.
The rows of elegant town houses in London’s South Kensington can bring on an acute case of real estate envy, but for those without the multi-million pound budget to acquire their own, Doyle Collection's The Kensington Hotel is introducing an alternative you can get just for the night: its new 1,900 square foot Town House Suite.
The privately-owned hotel occupies four real Regency town houses just off of Old Brompton Road, which puts you a bit further away from the West End, but around the corner from the Natural History Museum and a stroll away from glorious Royal Albert Hall. The Town House Suite can be configured with up to three bedrooms, each with private bathroom. We love the classic fireplace and the little circular nook next to it in the above picture – how could you not want to curl up and never leave?
The W Washington DC , the closest hotel to the White House, has announced a new VIP Suites Program in all of its 23 "Fantastic and Marvelous Suites," seven "WOW Suites" and one "Extreme WOW Suite." The suite names are typical W branding but the VIP package is indeed inclusive.

· A dedicated VIP Concierge that is assigned to each guest
· Guaranteed table at POV nightclub

Planning a dirty weekend in London? We've already declared the rooms at the Sanctum Soho to be among the Sexiest hotel Rooms Alive! but, look out, the hotel's BXG Suite aka room 404, is possibly now the sexiest of the sexy after teaming up with luxury erotic specialists, Box Of Grey.
The suite is decorated with "voyeuristic" images of models Jenny Goodall and Tessa Kuragi by photographer Ray Burmiston and, if you pay £350 extra (on top of Junior Suite rates that start at $620) , comes with a "Bijoux Sanctum" flight case filled with restraints, a BXG leather mask, grey tie, Lelo Whip, feather, latex Bondage Bow and bullet vibrator.

If you haven't been to Vegas for a few years, then you're going to be blown away by the amount of changes that have happened in Sin City. Heck, even if you haven't been to Vegas in a year or two years, you might not recognize the latest re-incarnation of Fabulous Las Vegas.
Our sibling, VegasChatter is constantly chronicling the changes but if you've got a short attention span (and this is the internet so who doesn't?), here are 5 New Things to Try in Vegas (and 1 Big Thing to Avoid.)
1. THE PALMS' 24-HOUR HOTEL STAYS
We named 24-Hour Hotel Stays the Best New Service of 2013 and now, the trend has hit Vegas at the Palms Hotel and Casino. So if you check-in at 8pm on a Friday, you don't have to leave until 8pm on Saturday. There are some contingencies such as you must book through Palms.com and you must note your check-in time when you make the reservation. You also have to book either a Superior or Premier room, or the Ivory Suite to get the 24-hour stay. But it's totally worth it if it means saving you five hours from hanging around the airport with a nasty hangover. (Read more about it here.)
Unless you're a billionaire, then probably not. But we're always on the lookout for some spectacular suites and today, we've got plenty of photos of the Lotte Hotel Moscow which at 490 square meters claims to have the largest suite in Moscow. That's over 5,000-sq.ft. in American measurements.
The Lotte Hotel, part of the Korea's Lotte Hotels and Resorts group, describes itself as a 5-star hotel in New Arbat, the financial and shopping center of Moscow. The exterior looks corporate-y but inside the 300-room hotel is a French restaurant, Les Menus from 3-star Michelin Chef Pierre Gagnaire along with a modern fusion Japanese restaurant called MEGU. There's also a Mandara Spa, an all-day lounge that does tea and late-night music and an outdoor terrace that's open from May to October. And clearly, guests love the spot as it's ranked #1 on TripAdvisor.
We won't even try to guess how many rubles the Royal Suite costs, we do know that the regular rooms (at 48 sq. meters) start at around $300USD a night. But given that it's a dicey time in Russia right now (to say the least), you may want to wait a little while to book.

If you've walked along 57th Street, Manhattan recently, you don't need us to tell you that the Viceroy New York is a thing of beauty. Both inside and out, the first full hotel façade and interior design project by Roman and Williams positively glows; from the lantern-like glazed black brick-and-metal windows, to the in-room brass fixtures and marble countertops. The newest development is the opening of their Suite 57, a two-bedroom suite that takes up the entire front section of the 28th floor: what they are calling "a great New York City apartment".
The Lucifer bathroom
With Mardi Gras just ahead (March 4), New Orleans is hard to beat as a place to celebrate. While there are no guarantees that what happens in New Orleans stays in New Orleans, the Saint Hotel wants it to happen there. With the debut of five new luxury suites their message is clear—play naughty. It’s OK.
We loved the Saint Hotel when it opened in 2012, and we love it still. Now a member of Marriott's Autograph Collection, the Saint continues its unique blend of approachable luxury with the soul of New Orleans. The design concept of the new suites is to the credit of the hotel’s owners Mark and Lorenda Wyant. They created the setting -- the rest is up to you.
The suites are named after archangels Christopher, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Lucifer. Yes, Lucifer. Let’s have a look at the two Master Suites, the Archangel Lucifer Suite and the Archangel Michael Suite, which are about as different as night and day.
The W Chicago City Center hosted an early Valentine's Day bash on Tuesday night in their new Extreme Wow (or "EWow") Suite, which is different from any other suite in a few ways.
First: it has Space Invaders. That's right— just off the entrance, a small arcade area houses throwback games. As for the rest?
The 22nd-floor suite, which opened quietly in August, spans 1,500 square feet. In a made-for-entertaining living room area, a serpentine couch is topped with fuzzy throws and jewel-hued pillows; there's also a 55-inch TV and a high-top bar with seating for four. On the night we stopped by, the hotel's in-house mixologist Lauren Parton was whipping up personalized "love potion" sips behind the bar; we hear she works her magic, and can even lead demos, at all types of private W functions.
In the bedroom, a king-size bed is topped with 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets. A corner dressing salon—kind of perfect for bridal parties— has two, floor-to-ceiling mirrored wardrobes, a vanity desk with an illuminated oval mirror, and a three-way dressing mirror.
Everyone knows that everything is bigger in Texas but the saying couldn't more true with the suite offerings at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. Instead of giving its VIP guests the penthouse or the presidential suite, the Ritz is now giving them an entire wing of the hotel to occupy.
Called The Ritz-Carlton Suite Privacy Wing, the exclusive area includes the largest suite in the house--the 2,385-sq.ft. Ritz-Carlton Suite which has killer views of the city--along with four additional connecting rooms and suites, as well as a dedicated private main entrance, a nearby access staircase, a service elevator and keyed elevator access. The wing can sleep up to 16 people and gives each guest access to the Ritz-Carlton Club lounge.
Total cost? "Only" $7,500 a night.

Your children are probably in the backseat singing the soundtrack to the new Disney princess movie, "Frozen" right now so whether you want to tell them about the "Frozen"-inspired hotel suite is up to you.
But should you want to treat the kids, or yourself, Quebec's Hotel de Glace, a seasonal ice hotel, has now unveiled pictures of the Frozen Suite which is inspired by the two sisters' bedroom in the movie. It was even supervised by the film's art director.
Booking a stay in the Frozen Suite will also include time in a “Frozen Activity Cave” which may also feature elements of the movie. The suite will be unveiled this weekend but alas, won't last forever. The suite and the rest of the ice hotel will close on March 23rd.
There's no option to book the Frozen suite on the hotel's website, nor is there a price, but we expect it to be unveiled this weekend. So stay tuned for the update. In the meantime, a themed room adventure package starts at $399CAD a night and also includes a room at the Four Points by Sheraton in Quebec in case it gets too cold. Which will probably happen with little kids.
