Emporium Hotel Featured Hotel Review

Monday, November 14th, 2011
Emporium Hotel

The term 'eye for detail' has been followed to the enth degree in one of the most exquisitely luxe boutique hotels in Australia.

Nestled in the heart of Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, minutes from shops, bars and restaurants, the 'Emporium Hotel' has been designed with the most finite details in mind.

'Emporium' owner, Francine John, enlisted master craftsmen, many locally based, to realise her design concepts inspired by the frangipani flower that is peppered throughout the property in various forms.

Located in a 'piazza' type precinct, the exquisite chandelier in the lobby takes my breath away but not as much as the personalised service offered by every staff member who crosses my path.

When you drive onto a property and the valet knows your name before you step out of the car, it still astounds me!

My multitude of luggage is carefully placed onto a trolley and the reception staff … Read the rest

A batik shop that has blossomed into a welcoming hotel

Saturday, June 25th, 2011
Hotel Susanthas

How nice to find a place to stay that has all the attributes of a boutique hotel but without the pretension and inflated prices.

Hotel Susanthas, adjoining the National Holiday Resort in Bentota, began life 40 years ago as the Susantha Batik Factory, a low-walled compound where brilliant batiks were produced for sale to tourists. Gradually it became a simple restaurant, expanding in 1982 to a guesthouse with seven rooms.

As more rooms and facilities were added it became known as Hotel Susanthas, blossoming successfully along with the flowers and trees in its glorious central garden in place of the batik factory.

Today it has 22 rooms including two new and fully equipped self-catering apartments.

The self-catering concept has been slow arriving in Sri Lanka, possibly because the infrastructure of supermarkets and specialist shops where tourists can buy their supplies, took time to spread beyond Colombo.

The two … Read the rest

21c hotel group, chef plan pizza restaurant: Garage Bar set for E. Market St. in July

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
21c Museum Hotel

The owners of 21c Museum Hotel and Michael Paley, the chef at Proof on Main at the boutique hotel, will open a restaurant featuring wood-oven pizza and Southern menu specialties to be called the Garage Bar at 700 E. Market St.

The restaurant is expected to open in July in a building that was long a service station and auto-repair shop, on the southeast corner of Market and Clay streets. Property records dating to 1938 show that it was once used as a saloon. The renovation, which is well under way, will retain the building's character as a garage.

Stephanie Greene, a spokeswoman for 21c Museum Hotel and for Proof on Main, said Paley will be the chef at the new restaurant and will continue to oversee the kitchen at Proof on Main. The Garage Bar menu will feature craft beer brewed off-site, Greene said.

Hotel offers home away from home

Spicers Balfour Hotel

THE weary traveller, especially one who must travel in his profession, appreciates the difference a boutique hotel can make to the well-being when on the road.

Spicers Balfour Hotel in New Farm, Brisbane, fits this bill perfectly. It’s more like a luxurious and classic Queensland home than a hotel.

With just nine rooms, its warm intimacy is felt the moment of entry. On our visit in February, fellow guests were a mix of couples and business people.

We saw this the moment after we’d settled into our luxurious room, checked out the Italian bed linen, and popped up to the roof-top bar for martinis and canapés, to find the interesting mix of guests all had the same refreshment needs as us.

Propped up at the bar overlooking the Story Bridge, watching the sun go down and waiting for the bridge to light up made us feel smug and gave us … Read the rest

Guests check out, artists check in at Boise hotel

Monday, May 9th, 2011
Modern Hotel Boise

Once a year, a former Travelodge budget hotel checks out all of its guests so it can check in artists.

The boutique Modern Hotel Boise, Idaho's Linen District turns into a bustling art gallery on the first Thursday each May, the Idaho Statesman reports. In just four years, the event grown into one of the city's most popular events.

The owners open the "rooms, courtyard, hallways, balconies, nooks and crannies to visual artists, dancers, musicians, designers and anyone with a cool idea," the paper says.

This year, the Modern Hotel Boise hosted some hotel-specific exhibits such as Sean Aucutt's and Bob Neal's suitcase sculpture installation and Elizabeth Hilton's "Turf Bed."

The event started as a grass-roots way to bring artists and the community together and also as a way to give the hotel some buzz, hotel owner Elizabeth Tullis told the paper. With little effort, 1,000 people showed up the … Read the rest

Morgans Hotel Group Sells L.A. Hotel for $137M

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011
Mondrian Los Angeles

Boutique hotel operator Morgans Hotel Group Co. said Tuesday it has sold an L.A. hotel to an affiliate of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust for $137 million.

The deal for the Mondrian Los Angeles amounts to $580,000 per room. Morgans will continue to operate the hotel under a 20-year management pact that includes an option for a 10-year extension.

Morgans said it used a portion of the proceeds, along with cash in escrow, to pay off $103.5 million in mortgage debt secured by the property. Net proceeds, after the repayment of debt and closing costs, are about $40 million. Morgans anticipates using the rest of the proceeds, along with gains from the planned sale of the Royalton and Morgans hotels in New York, to refinance debt.

"This is another important step in our transition to an asset light model, which will allow us to reduce our debt and expand our brands around … Read the rest
