What's Worth It
Spring has sprung and popping up alongside the roses are some very chic new properties we’ve been eager to sink our teeth into. From Parisian flea market décor to landmarks-in-the-making, read on to discover four new locations just announced by some brands we call old favorites – from L.A. to Hong Kong.
What was once home to Lillie Langtry, mistress of Edward VII and pied-à-terre of Oscar Wilde, is now being turned into Belmond’s first property in the British Capital. The Cadogan Hotel has undergone a 4 year, 50 million dollar renovation and is finally set to open its doors this spring. Guests will get to enjoy exclusive benefits such as access to the private Cadogan Place Gardens, which Belmond will undoubtedly take advantage to host afternoon tea outdoors. British art will adorn the walls of the historic building, with over 400 pieces commissioned to local artists.
One of the most buzzed about hotel openings of the year is from Italian group JK Place. The first foray outside their native Italy. The 30 rooms will be stylishly decorated with Italian pieces as well as gems found from Parisian flea markets. The basement of the old embassy building will be transformed into a Sisley spa, which will include a pool. On the ground floor Mickey Grendene will open Casa Tua, creating an all-day eating and drinking place, from morning espressos to late night Spritzes.
Rosewood’s new Asia property was first announced back in 2016. After some delays, the Rosewood is finally set to open in March 2019. With a total of 322 rooms and 91 suites housed in the former New World Trade Centre building, the new luxury property is set to become an instant landmark in the city’s skyline. The hotel will also be home to Rosewood’s new signature wellness offering, Asaya, which will span two floors and offer alternative therapies, lifestyle and nutritional coaching.
Hoxton Downtown LA
The gentrification of Downtown Los Angeles is being led by the many opening of luxury hotels. The latest one to announce its opening this year is the Hoxton. With sister properties already in Portland and New York already doing well with the American market, the Hoxton’s new opening in LA is highly anticipated. Known for its F&B outlets and chic décor, this outpost of the British hotel group aims to inspire cultural discovery and be a meeting spot for locals through its seriously on-point foodie options.
