10 New U.S. Hotels We’re Excited About
There’s no denying that this is an exciting time in the luxury, American travel space. We have our eye on many promising, new hotels across the country– both from renowned hotel brands and fresh, young hospitality groups. From Central California to Upstate New York, you’ll find these hotels tap into intriguing (and perhaps underrated) parts of the country and provide authentic stays true to the region. Of course, luxurious amenities, thoughtful design and excellent guest service are prerequisites. These are hotels that ignite curiosity, provide rejuvenation, and serve as excellent base camps for an adventurous American road trip.
Check out these ten new and upcoming hotels that the All Roads North team is excited about:
Why we love it: The passionate people behind it, as well as the property’s storied, Wyoming history.
3 Spear Ranch is a 1,200 acre boutique ranch and resort nestled in Wyoming’s Wind River Valley and Absaroka Mountains. Just a 90 minute drive from Jackson Hole, it’s the perfect base camp from which to explore the beautiful Grand Tetons and immerse yourself in nature. A vintage 1892 billiards table, a natural hot spring on site, and endless thoughtful amenities make this place a warm home away from the hustle. Plus, there’s an all-star team with deep, local roots. Married duo and Wyoming natives Creed and Sascha Garnick partner with hospitality veteran General Manager Chandler Minton to bring their mutual vision to life: one where rugged western romanticism combines with personalized service.
Los Olivos, California
Why we love it: We’re excited for this much-needed luxury base in one of our favorite under-the-radar areas of California.
Another exciting restoration project by the Auberge Collection, The Inn at Mattei’s Tavern is a luxury stay in Los Olivos with a wild California gold rush history. Its past lives include its beginnings as a stagecoach stop in the 1880’s and a sneaky speakeasy location during the Prohibition. Now, The Inn at Mattei’s Tavern was reimagined with new luxurious touches while paying homage to an interesting past. It’s the perfect place from which to enjoy the blossoming fine dining scene in the area (check out the newly Michelin-starred Bells restaurant), go wine-tasting, and ride horseback through the mountains and valleys of Santa Ynez.
Why we love it: It’s been a minute since any fresh, bespoke stays opened in the area and we’re loving the contemporary design and commitment to sustainability.
Set to open in the summer of 2022, Ambiente is located in the heart of Sedona, Arizona. The new property embraces the surrounding cathedrals of red rock with stunning natural views from each guest “atrium.” Ambiente has noted conservation as a main goal at the heart of the hotel’s construction and ongoing service, with projects such as restoring an ancient, natural waterway on the property.
New York, New York
Why we love it: This is the first Six Senses property in North America and the first of the brand’s new urban collection.
The Six Senses reputation is well established for creating exceptional guest experiences in beautiful tropical locations. Now the brand is bringing that same ethos to the city, kicking off its first urban collection with the XI in New York City. Of course, the new property is located in an unparalleled location between Hudson River and the High Line in Manhattan’s dynamic West Chelsea neighborhood. The property will use natural-hued fabrics and materials to create the tranquil ambiance that Six Senses is known for amidst the bustle of the city that never sleeps.
5. High Hampton
Cashiers, North Carolina
Why we love it: Everything the Blackberry Farm team touches turns to gold.
High Hampton has a long, 100-year history as a beloved destination for summer travels and weekend getaways in North Carolina. However, over the past two years, the acclaimed family and team behind Blackberry Farm oversaw the revitalization of the Inn, cottages and restaurants. The rustic charms of the creaky floors and antique, locally-crafted furniture remain, but now with the glow of the Blackberry Farm design team’s golden touch. Air conditioning and heat were some welcome additions, for starters, but there’s also the reconfigured bedroom spaces to allow more space and the modernized, stylish bathrooms.
Big Sky, Montana
Why we love it: This is the first One&Only resort in the United States!
Set to open in 2024, Moonlight Basin promises to bring the thoughtful luxury of the One&Only brand to the mountains of Montana. The expansive 8,100-acre property will serve as the perfect base camp from which to explore the surrounding Big Sky area. Across every season, the stunning mountain landscape provides endless opportunities for exploration in the snow or the sun– like skiing, fly fishing, kayaking and biking.
Why we love it: This exciting, young hotel group has opened a location in one of our favorite locations in the Northeast.
Life House took inspiration from Upstate New York’s storied legacy as a retreat and inspiration for creatives when creating this property in the Berkshires. Billed as a “writer’s mountain retreat,” the reimagined 1970’s lodge taps into the tradition of cozy fireside conversation, craft cocktails at the communal bar, and misty mornings. The guest rooms are filled with earthy tones and retro patterns, as well as luxury touches such as La Labo bath products and Revival NY linens.
Why we love it: The food. Southern comfort meets fresh, seasonal fare directly from the property’s working farm.
An idyllic countryside setting. A working farm. Warm Southern hospitality. These are just a few of the components that contribute to the wonder of Southall among the rolling hills of Franklin, Tennessee. The Inn at Southall includes 62 guestrooms and 16 separate cottage accommodations, inspired by the surrounding bucolic landscapes and committed to utilizing local craftsmanship.
9. Albert Hotel
Why we love it: We’re thrilled to see a bespoke hotel option added to Texas Wine Country.
Albert Hotel in Fredericksburg, Texas is a blend of old and new, with four original, historic buildings in addition to new construction providing a contemporary flavor. Expected to open in the late 2022, this buzzy new hotel is spearheaded by New Waterloo, an acclaimed hospitality group with notable projects in Austin and Santa Fe. The spacious property’s two acres provides plenty of room for the 110 new guest rooms, swimming pool, three restaurants and spa.
Hudson Valley, New York
Why we love it: We love the natural focus and beautiful location.
As the name suggests, Wildflower Farms was created to be deeply in touch with the scenic meadows, brooks, orchards and arcadian surroundings of Hudson Valley. The Auberge property is set to open in autumn of 2022, bringing 65 luxury, free-standing accommodations to the expansive 140 acre property. Nature will be at the forefront of the Wildflower Farms experience, both on property and due to its close proximity to landmarks such as the Hudson Valley River and Catskills Mountains– all just 90 minutes from New York City.
