It’s like clockwork: the annual Skytrax awards for best airport come around, and Singapore’s Changi Airport wins. So it did last month, for the third year running, and no US airport even made the top ten.
If flying in and out of Singapore is nice and award-worthy at the moment, wait until their next project is going to be completed. Called Jewel Changi Airport, it is an enormous mixed-use complex that should be ready by the end of 2018, and includes lots of things, like a new Yotel, but we have to start with the above: the 40-metre high Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall that will be at the heart of the complex. Just take in that rendering – can you imagine something like that greeting you at, say, Newark?
East & West, a new dining and lounge concept from China Grill Management, opened in the hotel last week and features a menu by Executive Chef Bradley Day that features shareable small and large plates and pays homage to the best of the eastern and western worlds -- kinda like the hotel itself.
The Yotel in Times Square has always been a fun hotel (remember their opening party? And don't forget about the Yobot) but we're especially digging their new Interactive Lego Wall which allows guests to get crafty with the bricks, and maybe even win a free stay.
Located on "Four", the 30-foot long installation encourages guests and visitors to make their own Lego sculpture and then spread the word via the hashtag: #mylegomasterpiece. Yotel is collecting snapshots of the block creations here. The Cunard ship might be our favorite.
Aside from showing off your Lego skills, hashtagging your photo will also enter you into the Yotel's contest to will a three-night stay in a cabin room with an outdoor terrace and hot tub. Full details can be found here.
The Lego Wall at Yotel will be up until March. It's actually doing double-duty as both a fun, interactive installation and a temporary construction wall. Behind the wall, the hotel is working on a new Club Lounge and a new dining area, to be unveiled March 2nd.
