All signs point to 2022 being one of the busiest travel years on record. But if that luxury European vacation seems out of reach this year, you can take comfort in the fact that an exciting new generation of hotels has opened its doors here in the United States. Beverly Hills with a sleek new property. New York, meanwhile, is finally picking up the pace with the revival of the legendary Chelsea Hotel and the opening of a luxury property on Wall Street, signaling the ongoing evolution of one of Manhattan’s oldest neighborhoods. If you’re looking for an escape from the city, a one-of-a-kind Maine property designed by Todd Snyder or a reimagined 19th-century Sonoma mansion might be quicker. Whatever you’re looking for, this selection of nine new American hotels is sure to keep you happy.
The Maybourne Hotel, Beverly Hills
European glamor and Californian cool form an intoxicating cocktail at the Maybourne, the Beverly Hills outpost overseen by the same group that runs Claridge’s in London. With rooms designed by Bryan O’Sullivan, the hotel has a comfortable, open and high sensitivity. Think round sofas covered in nubby wools, custom-carved marble, wooden lamps (which we wish we could bring home), and a beautifully curated selection of artwork. Don’t miss a morning massage or facial in the beautiful spa (you won’t want to leave), an afternoon lounging on the pool deck overlooking the Hollywood Hills, or an evening at the Terrace restaurant followed by of a cocktail in the impeccable André Fu’s designed bar. No matter what time of year you visit, we recommend the Perfectly Frozen Mojito. It’s far from London.
Hidden Pond Bungalows, Kennebunkport, Maine
A recent collaboration with LLBean has brought Todd Snyder, the two-time CFDA winner, known for his seminal work designing menswear at J.Crew in Maine. Snyder continues to leave his mark on the Pine Tree State, this time with the 20 bungalows he designed at hidden pond, a 60-acre property in Kennebunkport. Each of the cabins has a fireplace, an outdoor shower and a screened-in porch. New England follower John Derian inspired oyster shell wallcovering in one room. Snyder’s imprint extends right down to the libations: A Dark and Stormy, the creator’s signature drink, awaits every visitor.
The Ritz Carlton New York, NoMAD
A bold new hotel is blooming in Manhattan’s Flower District. The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad has taken root with a personality suited to the neighborhood: the 219 rooms, 31 suites, and 19 residences feature a variety of floral inspirations, from curved furniture with lines of petals to chandeliers that resemble vines and flower stems. The hotel is equipped with a team of design stars, including Martin Brudnizki, who is responsible for Nubeluz, a rooftop bar. Relaxation is assured with a signature facial by skincare guru Augustinus Bader and in-room amenities by Diptyque. Refreshment is provided by Spanish-American chef José Andrés and his Mediterranean restaurant Zaytinya, designed by hospitality superstars Rockwell Group. And there’s even more in store: Andres’s Bazaar at the end of 2022.
Wildflower Farms, Auberge Resorts Collection, Hudson Valley
Ninety minutes from New York City, where the Hudson Valley meets the foot of the Catskill Mountains, Auberge Resorts is opening its newest property this fall and taking reservations now. The Grand Porch, the glazed reception area, signals wildflower farms‘wide open embrace of its surroundings. Conceived by Ward and Gray, the property has 65 self-contained accommodations, a spa, outdoor pool and hot tubs, and Clay, a restaurant focused on the ingredients that grow right outside its doors. The hotel further connects its guests to nature through its cooking school, Maplehouse, and hiking trails that traverse the 140-acre property. Be sure to book the impressive Ridge Suite, which includes a cozy fireplace and an outdoor terrace, which will turn the view of nearby Shawagunk Ridge into your private living room.
Chelsea Hotel, New York
Perhaps no opening this side of the pandemic has been met with more anticipation by New Yorkers and tourists alike as the Chelsea Hotel, the iconic building on 23rd Street that has welcomed everyone from Edie Sedgwick to Patti Smith to Bob Dylan. Owners of favorites Jane and the Bowery have brought this legendary hotel back to life. The hotel’s legendary bones remain, but rooms have been refreshed with lush velvet upholstered furniture, monogrammed linens, and marble bathrooms. Also back: the lobby bar and beloved Spanish restaurant El Quijote.
La Madrona, Sonoma County
Originally the private residence of 19th century California banker and miner John Alexander Paxton, madrone, which opened in late April 2022, is now a remarkable 24-room hotel and restaurant designed by co-owner Jay Jeffers. The property features ornate walls and ceilings, while custom rugs brighten the living rooms and grand entryways. And lovers of old things will be delighted: Jeffers has decorated the hotel with more than 200 pieces of original antiques, including a number of treasures from the original Paxton family. This being Sonoma after all, the eight-acre property also includes a restaurant of the same name run by star chef Jesse Mallgren.
Hotel Clio, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Denver
As visitors to Denver today seek the opportunity for outdoor adventure, Hotel Clio, with its golden accents and earth tones, pays homage to a group of earlier explorers who discovered a large gold deposit nearby more than a century and a half ago. Belonging to the Luxury Group of Marriott International, the 199 rooms and suites of the Hotel Clio have been designed by Wilson Ishihara. The hotel has a large fireplace in the lobby and its on-site restaurant Toro Latin Bar and Kitchen, run by chef Oscar Padilla, where guests can explore the menu with weekly guacamole-making classes and tequila tastings.
Ned NoMad, New York
Like many New York businesses, the NoMad hotel in Manhattan has been a victim of the pandemic. But the team behind Soho House has reincarnated the Beaux Arts building into a new property, the Ned.
Former NoMad guests will find familiar spaces, including updated versions of the Elephant Library and Bar. The Ned, with 167 Art Deco-influenced rooms, two restaurants and four bars, includes the second members-only Ned Club, which made its London debut five years ago. (A third is now planned in Doha, Qatar, to open ahead of this fall’s World Cup.) Members can take advantage of the rooftop terrace and Magic Room event space. Not a member? The Ned NoMad is home to Venice-inspired Cecconi’s, the global hot spot’s first appearance in Manhattan.
Wall Street Hotel, New York
One of New York’s oldest neighborhoods, the Financial District holds an important place in the global imagination as the world capital of commerce. But the banking mecca is shaking off its buttoned-up reputation with the Wall Street Hotel. Guests can choose from 180 rooms, designed by Liubasha Rose of Pink Ink Workshop, which features thoughtful book selections and bar offerings, as well as unobstructed views of New York Harbor. Star chef John Fraser is behind modern French bistro La Marchande, and rooftop bar Tontine is set to open. Still not convinced Lower Manhattan is the new place to be? Rent a free bike and see for yourself.
