Guess Where? Hotel Lobby

201103-b-guess-62jpg

This week, we sent one of our writers to explore NYC and we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers to tell her where to go. Can you guess where she is in this photo? She writes, "Daylight flickers in the lobby. . . filtered not just through a skylight but through the second floor swimming pool. Funny to look up and see the undersides of feet paddling around." What do you think?

Log in and leave your guesses below and check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 8/08/11: Congrats to denise.lao and kittiekatkixazz! You both were right. This is the lobby of the Dream Downtown on the edge of New York's Meatpacking District.

L.A.’s New Vintage-Inspired Hotel

Mr. C Beverly Hills

A Bellini with your room key? That’s a given at the just-opened Mr. C Beverly Hills. After all, that’s C as in Cipriani—known for legendary restaurants and cocktail lounges around the world. Brothers Ignazio and Maggio created a hotel in the former Loews Tower that is true to their Italian roots, with Old Hollywood touches: a travertine-and-rosewood-clad lobby, decked out with Eames loungers and Egg chairs, gives way not to a check-in desk (which is hidden from view) but to a swank, Jazz Age–style bar and Italian restaurant serving freshly baked pizzas and house-made pastas. An updated 1930’s ocean-liner glamour defines the 138 rooms—vintage black-and-white photos and burgundy Chesterfield sofas line the neutral-toned walls—while private balconies overlook the teak pool deck. In a city where dramatic entrances are de rigueur, Mr. C has just made his. 1224 Beverwil Dr., Beverly Hills; 877/334-5623; doubles from $349.

Ritz-Carlton's Second-Ever "Reserve" to Open in Puerto Rico

201107-b-dorado-1jpg

Soon there will be a new reason to be enchanted by Puerto Rico. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company announced that it will open its second-ever Reserve property—one built to LEED Silver standards—in Dorado Beach. The luxury island destination first grabbed travelers' attention when Laurance S. Rockefeller opened one of his eco-friendly RockResorts in the area more than 50 years ago. In December 2012, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve hopes to boost interest in the tropical sanctuary with a 115-room oceanfront hotel and residences and a renovation of the original Dorado Beach Resort.

The brand's exclusive Reserve extension features "low-density" boutique resorts in exotic corners of the world, with more indigenous materials, as well as local products and traditions. At this time, the only other Reserve location is Phulay Bay in Krabi, Thailand.

Hotel Snore Controls Aim To Banish Sleepless Nights

Reuters Life! |  Guests at an international hotel chain may sleep more soundly after the introduction of "snore patrols" and "snore absorption rooms" at a number of sites worldwide.

Crowne Plaza is trialing the first "snore absorption" rooms at 10 hotels in Europe and the Middle East, whilst six branches in Britain have implemented "snore patrols" this month in a bid to combat noisy sleepers.

"Snore monitors" patrol corridors in the designated quiet zones of Crowne Plaza hotels in the cities of London, Leeds and Manchester. Their job is to listen out for offensive noises and knock on the door of guests who snore too loudly.
