Hot off the press! On our round-up this week, we’ve got up and coming properties from a luxury resort nestled on the Island of the Gods — to a “fitness science meets travel” hotel on the streets of Manhattan’s west side. Here are the newest hotels from around the world:
The Standard, London
Set to open this year, The Standard, London is housed in the historic Camden Town Annex and will celebrate the history of the building and neighbourhood — while connecting it to its future. The hotel features 266 rooms designed by Shawn Hausman Design (some including outdoor terraces and bathtubs overlooking St Pancras Station), a garden restaurant, as well as a destination rooftop restaurant.
