We labeled it one of ten hotel openings we were psyched about and voila, the previously unnamed JDV Hotel in Hawaii is now open.
The Shoreline Hotel Waikiki opened its doors on April Fool's Day but it is serious about welcoming new guests. The 70s-inspired boutique hotel sits in the middle of some of Diamond Head's best shopping and restaurants. (The actual ocean shoreline is just under a mile away.)
While the vibe may be 70s inspired, the 135 rooms are outfitted with some of today's best modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and free WiFi. Rounding out the amenities are a Cha Cha Cha Mexican restaurant and bar, 24-hour front desk hosts and a Welcome Lei upon arrival.
And rates are totally affordable too. The hotel is celebrating its opening with a special room rate of $159 a night. Regular room rates won't be that much more starting at $195 a night. Go here to book.
At last! We have an actual opening date for the long-awaited Hyatt Union Square. Ok, ok, we've totally gone through this before but we kinda think Hyatt is going to get 'er done. We can't help but wonder if this had something to do with it.
Right now, the hotel's website is taking reservations for May 1. But it's going to cost ya. Courtyard studio rooms are starting at $429 a night on opening day. That includes the signature Hyatt Grand bed, a 37-inch flat screen TV with KoolConnect Online concierge, bathrobes, minibar, windows that open and a "tech wired writers table" (aka a fancy way to say "desk.")
Sadly, the WiFi is not free but if you're a Hyatt Platinum or Diamond member you can sign on gratis. The hotel is promising complimentary internet access in the public spaces, so there are ways to avoid the in-room internet charge.

All of the reviews are insanely positive with two being about the bar and restaurant options (the Radio rooftop, the STK eatery and Cucina Aselina are fully open for business), one review in French and another review praising the hotel design and recommending travelers pick a room as high up as possible to get views of the Thames.
While the price is right and the nightlife options are in full swing, the hotel is still in a soft-opening phase so there may still be some kinks to work out. Word is a full opening is expected in March but we'll be sure to update you when that's finalized.
'Til then, enjoy your time with ME.

After missing a hopeful December opening date, the first-ever hotel from master sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa is still set to open sometime in February. But exactly when in February? We headed over to the Nobu Hotels website to find out.
The site actually redirects you to the Caesars website where it's currently showing rooms open on February 4 for $269 a night. That's for a Nobu Deluxe King, the starting room category, and the pricing is pretty similar to what VegasChatter reported back in September. The hotel is completely sold-out for its opening weekend but after that rooms dip down to $249 a night. Most weekends through March are about $299 a night.
Planning on splitting the room with friends? A deluxe room with two queen beds goes for $289 while luxury king rooms are $299 a night weekdays.
Keep reading for the sweet suite options at the Nobu Hotel!
A new year, a new hotel for NYC!
Despite initially saying they would be open for NYC's Hotel Week, The Jade Hotel will now FINALLY open on February 1st and the opening room rates are pretty fantastic for a new hotel in Manhattan. Granted, it's the dead of winter but we'd be ok with spending $199 a night for a Grove Queen which includes free WiFi, Bigelow toiletries and a dandy retro-rotary phone to order room service on. Plus, that rate is a lot less than the $400 price tag mentioned back in October.
But if you're feeling flush, you could splurge on the Greenwich Penthouse suite on the top floor which has a walk-out balcony and a spa tub and a separate shower. (Sadly, it still only offers a queen-sized bed.)
Like all good new hotels about the open, the Jade has its Facebook page up and running with a bunch of photos of its Parisian-inspired decor. Have a look-see now at those snaps now and maybe we'll have some new ones for you shortly!

UPDATE: The hotel will actually open in October. A firm opening date is expected in a few weeks. We pulled the December 1st date from the LHW website.
We’ve been following the transformation of the venerable Café Royal in London from meeting place for artists and intellectuals (Oscar Wilde used to be a regular) into a hotel for the 21st century since way back in 2008.
We saw some of the construction progress earlier this year, with the hotel facing Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus, and an office/retail complex (including a giant Whole Foods) behind it. The site is in the middle of an area that is undergoing a little renaissance, with a chunk just to the south between Piccadilly and Jermyn Street being rebuilt (opposite the Le Méridien Piccadilly we talked about last week), the hotly-awaited Firmdale flagship a few steps east, and a planned 500-room pod hotel in the Trocadero complex just a bit further, right up to the shiny white spaceship that is the W Leicester Square.
With an expected pre-Olympics opening being missed and the website of parent group The Set Hotels having so few details available, we’ve eagerly awaited a first look at the hotel’s interiors. Imagine our surprise when we stumbled on a number of renderings over at The Leading Hotels of the World, where Café Royal is already listed.

Wow, that was fast! We only found out that Morgans Hotel Group was opening a Delano Hotel in Marrakech just the other month. And now we learn that hotel is already accepting reservations for its September 21 opening.
We found rates on the hotel's website for opening night at 4,090 MAD which is roughly $453. That's for a 400sq.ft. deluxe room with a king bed and a Juliette balcony which also includes free WiFi, breakfast and parking. Those perks are rather unusual for a Morgans Hotel! And if you book more than 21 days in advance you can get that room for just 3,440 MAD or about $380.
There's not much photography on the website yet but the hotel--designed by Jacques Garcia-- will have 71 rooms total, 30 of which are suites as well as the Bon R restaurant from Michelin-starred executive chef Michel Rostang and a Mediterranean Italian concept from Giancarlo Morelli. There will also be a 20,000-sq.ft. spa called The Pearl and a Sky Lounge bar.
This all sounds very swank indeed. So now, who's going to Marrakech on September 21st?

UPDATE 8.15.12: Sike. The Hotel Indigo Brooklyn actually opened as initially promised on August 1st, even though when we wrote this story the hotel's website was saying October 4. Nevertheless, you can check out our in-person visit of the new spot right here.
Well, it's still going to be an Indigo but the opening date has been moved to October 4. The hotel's website is up and running and we found rates for $224 a night for a queen-sized bed. That rate also includes a 37" HDTV, free WiFi and even a microwave and refrigerator. A king room was going for $254 a night while a king suite was $324.
We couldn't see any square footage measurements and we're not sure we can trust those room photos. The first one looks like it is up to Hotel Indigo standards with that hardwood floor. But the second one is a shot of the rooms at Aloft Brooklyn. What the what? See for yourself below.

We spotted Four Seasons Shanghai, Pudong earlier this year from the heights of the Park Hyatt next door. The start date for reservations has actually moved up a few days from September 1 at the time to August 28 now.
You'll find 187 rooms in the 55-story tower, alongside 73 luxury residences. Art-deco inspired design will bring a pared-down aesthetic to the rooms and public spaces, with splashes of red in a neutral color palette in the rooms. We liked some of the first images we saw here, so we're interested to see the end result.

Just the other day we thought we had covered all that was new on the Asian hotel scene but it turns out there's yet another hotel to watch out for---W Sentosa Cove in Singapore, a 240-room property on an island outside Singapore's city center.
The resort was initially set to open in August but now it's set for September 16. And to celebrate the opening the hotel has put together two "Welcome" packages, the first which starts at $306 US a night.
The Island Glamour Welcome package includes one night in a Wonderful room, breakfast for two at the Kitchen Table, and cocktails for two at the hotel's WOOBAR. The Marvelous Welcome package, on the other hand, ups the offerings with a stay in a Marvelous suite, breakfast for two, cocktails, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and complimentary two-way airport or local address transfers. A minimum stay of two nights is required and the package starts at $627 a night.
We found rates for the Island Glamour package are actually going for $309 US a night so it's slight $3 increase but the good news is that the welcome packages are both available through December 30th. Sadly, it doesn't include internet which is about $15 a day.
We found rooms for tomorrow night for just $85 a night. Yes, that's for a bunk bed but guess what? All the room categories at the hotel, including the queen bed category, are going for a special sample rate of $85 this month.
That's because the hotel hasn't quite finished up its construction so as a concession to guests willing to put up with "light construction work, intermittent or no access to internet or cable television" and no restaurant or bar service, rates are super, super cheap.
While we do prefer our hotel stays to have all their amenities and services at the ready, we can't turn away from an $85 room rate. Will you?
