The West Hollywood EDITION, Los Angeles, California

The EDITION brand is ready to make its mark on the west coast with its latest outpost in West Hollywood. Inside, the hotel will be home to 190 guest rooms, as well as 20 luxury two-to-four bedroom residences. There will also be a restaurant, a spa, a lobby lounge and a nightclub/bar venue. Come the scorching LA summers, the rooftop pool will be a tip-top hangout; it’s plenty large for a proper dip and is flanked by greenery and flora.

The Times Square EDITION, New York

When the EDITION opens on Times Square, it will have a whopping 452 rooms with four different levels of public spaces, including a performance venue and a high-end fitness centre. The rooftop’s expansive – and verdant – beer garden will also boast impressive views over Times Square. Talk about a central location.

Sage Lodge, Pray, Montana

It’s fitting that the area surrounding this southwest Montana resort is named Paradise Valley; the setting is quite spectacular. Sage Lodge looks out across the banks of the Yellowstone River, miles of golden grassland, and the towering Emigrant Peak. It’s also 35 minutes from Yellowstone National Park. The 50 rooms and cabins will have huge windows to make the most of the views, and a muted colour scheme. Fly-fishing is set to be a big draw with more than a mile of riverfront. You can also try other outdoor pursuits like hiking and horseback riding before a meal in the grill restaurant or unwinding in the spa.

The Hoxton, Williamsburg, New York City, New York

The Hoxton’s first US hotel opening has generated a lot of hype, and rightly so. Bedrooms carry the brand’s trademark minimalist design and are decorated with plenty of local touches – think handmade ceramics, shelves filled with books chosen by NY residents and bespoke patterned bed linen from Brooklyn homeware label Dusen Dusen. The Williamsburg location should hardly come as a surprise, knowing that The Hoxton group likes to opt for creative areas – this neighbourhood is where many of the city’s artists and chefs live. We’re betting they’ll all be flocking to the hotel’s rooftop bar with views of Manhattan come summer.

Celino South Beach, Miami Beach, Florida

The standout feature of this chic and fun Ocean Drive newcomer has got to be its rooftop, glass-bottomed pool. Inside, three Art Deco buildings have been combined to offer 132 guest rooms – 82 of which will boast ocean views. The vibe is pared-down 1940s Miami beach glamour: expect plenty of pastel colours, oversized potted plants, quirky art and patterned cushions. There’s also going to be another outdoor pool, a coastal Mediterranean restaurant and a slinky Spanish tapas bar.

Perry Lane Hotel, Savannah, Georgia

This swish hotel will bring a new wave of attention to the elegant city of Savannah when it opens its downtown doors this spring. All 167 rooms are decked out in soothing colours with Frette Italian linens, Byredo bath products and a minibar. Many include cosy nooks and wraparound sofas for reading and relaxing. Look out for the quirky, local art on the walls and tableside trinkets like boat models and vintage barometers. Communal spaces such as the cheese and wine ‘market’ and the rooftop pool bar are just the ticket for pre-dinner drinks.

Under Canvas Mount Rushmore, Keystone, South Dakota

These safari-inspired canvas tents lie just 10 minutes away from Mount Rushmore, and most importantly, they succeed in striking the balance between embracing the great outdoors and providing hotel luxuries. Many come with king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms (some with freestanding tubs), wooden flooring and private decks. Opt for the Stargazer and you’ll be able to pick out The Big Dipper from the viewing window above your bed. There will also be a restaurant, and plenty of activities ranging from gold panning to horseback riding.

The Source Hotel, Denver, Colorado

This hotel is opening next to – and as an extension of – Denver’s much-loved food market Source, where 25 different vendors operate (think Mexican street food and creative cocktails). Upstairs, there will be 100 light and bright rooms with polished concrete floors – some with views of the Rocky Mountains. Minibars are a selection of what’s on offer downstairs, and the silk-screened Source tote bag in your room comes in handy when shopping for gourmet souvenirs. A rooftop gastropub, beer garden and pool terrace completes the offering.

Hotel Bennett, Charleston, South Carolina

Say hello to this new Southern belle. Hotel Bennett will feature grand floral displays, designer pedestal tubs, a sleek spa, elegant fabrics and dramatic chandeliers. An ornate lobby with double staircases gives way to sophisticated rooms that have a classic beauty to them. Picture a muted colour palette, accents of gold and marble bathrooms. The hotel’s downtown location means it’s easy to wander most places in the city, and the views from the rooftop bar are charming. Do pause for afternoon tea in the Camellias lounge – it’s clad in antique pink stone, restored from when the building was the Charleston Library.

Bungalows Key Largo, Florida

Embrace the Key Largo cabana lifestyle in your very own white wooden bungalow. The Key’s latest all-inclusive, adults-only resort has beachfront and island options; both are a swathe of white, cream, grey and pastel hues. Coastal embellishments like coral-patterned cushions, large seashells and framed turtle photos add to the calming atmosphere. Other touches include the private verandas with sleek white soaking tubs, mint-green beach cruiser bicycles, and wide-netted hammocks swaying between the palm trees. To up the relaxation ante even further, there’s morning yoga on the beach, an oceanfront infinity pool and Zen Garden Spa with outdoor treatment rooms.

The Ramble Hotel, Denver, Colorado

The aesthetic of the 50 rooms at The Ramble Hotel is vintage with a thick layer of gloss. There may be wide-plank hickory flooring, antique Persian rugs, factory-paned windows, piles of old books and interesting art – but it’s all done in a stylish, planned-down-to-the-tee way with modern-looking chandeliers, plush pillow-top mattresses and chic block-colour headboards mixed in. New York cocktail bar Death and Co will take over the lobby to serve tantalising tipples, and will also select the drinking options for the in-room minibars.

Bobby Hotel, Nashville, Tennessee

The Bobby Hotel certainly won’t be making a shy entrance onto the Nashville scene – its bold personality spans quirky interior design to statement drinking establishments. Up top, there’s a rooftop lounge and pool with views over Music City, but it’s the 1967 former Greyhound bus that was lifted up here and fitted out for late-night parties that will really catch your attention. Downstairs, there’s dive-bar Bobby’s Garage and a lobby with modern chandeliers and funky furniture. Expect plenty of patterns when you do finally make it to bed, as well as cool urban lighting fixtures and leather headboards.

Lido House, Newport Beach, California

The California coastline is dotted with private beach homes – and with the addition of Lido House, you can finally feel like you have your own pad. The exterior has a distinctly Cape Cod-style aesthetic, and inside the rooms, the nautical vibes are on point. Think navy blue hues, striped carpets and cushions and seaside-themed photographs. There are also five cottages with their own rooftop deck and barbecue. Elsewhere, you’ll find Newport Beach’s only rooftop bar, a seafood restaurant, spa and saltwater pool with private cabanas and champagne cart service. Cheers to that.

Eaton Hotel DC, Washington DC

The first and flagship property of this new hotel brand will land in Washington DC this summer. The premise is to ‘merge hospitality with progressive social change,’ and create a place that is a hotel, media platform, co-working members club and wellness centre all at once. Attend the speaker series on political topics like climate change to really check in to the full experience. Rumour has it the agenda is anti-Trump, and that liberal cities Seattle and San Francisco are next on the agenda.

citizenM New York Bowery Hotel, New York

The lobby of citizenM’s forthcoming Lower East Side hotel exudes fun from the off. Loads of white lanterns hang from the ceiling, Vitra chairs and soft furnishings bring bright pops of colour, and the walls are full of shelves with funky objects and art. Rooms feel more pared back and functional in comparison, but include excellent features like wall-to-wall windows to maximise views, rain showers and extra large king-sized beds.

Palihotel Seattle, Washington

If you want an idea of how trendy this hotel will be, just know that it’s going to have Smeg fridges in the rooms. Design throughout the historic building will be fun and contemporary, with mismatched patterns and eclectic furniture. It’s also going to have a restaurant (The Hart and The Hunter) with food inspired by the deep south; dishes are likely to include butter biscuits with pimento cheese, and New Orleans-style barbecue shrimp.

Sophy Hyde Park, Chicago, Illinois

The interior design of this 98-room hotel is inspired by learning and will be based around the themes of gospel music, science, mathematics, art and literature. As for location – and given the theming – it’s in good company. The hotel is found in the South Side neighbourhood of the lush Hyde Park, which is also home to the University of Chicago and the Museum of Science and Industry. Even the entry-level rooms are generously sized, and all come with seating areas with corner sofas, colourful art and large marble bathrooms.

21C Museum Hotel, Kansas City, Missouri

Contemporary art will be at the core of 21C Museum Hotel in Kansas City, much like the arty hotel group’s other outposts across the United States. The free museum inside has 6,200 square feet of exhibition space, and will present a rotating cycle of exhibitions focused on the art of the 21st century. Get to know some of our generation’s most powerful artists before checking in to one of the 120 rooms. All have high ceilings, big windows and, of course, original artwork.

Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club, Miami Beach, Florida

A neon ‘Cadillac’ sign out front screams of old-school American motels, but inside it’s going to be all clean white lines, sleek design and chic vibes. Rooms are done up in soothing blue and white hues, and there’s a beachfront bar and a classy Italian restaurant. An outdoor pool surrounded by palm trees will be the spot for lounging, and will have its own ice-cream cart serving the hotel’s signature shaved ices.

Proper Hotel Downtown LA, California

If the first Proper Hotel in San Francisco is anything to go by, this Downtown Los Angeles incarnation will be a riot of colours, patterns and oh-so-Instagrammable backdrops. It’s set in a historic Renaissance Revival-style building on the corner of Broadway and 11th, and will house 148 guest rooms, two ground-floor restaurants, a gym, two presidential suites and a rooftop restaurant, bar and pool. iPhones at the ready.
