The newly opened Asbury Hotel, located in Asbury Park, N.J., is already making a name for itself as the new hotel hotspot—it was recently awarded the number one spot on USA Today’s 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards Best New Hotel in America list.

“We are thrilled to be named the best new hotel in America,” says David Bowd, Salt Hotels, part owner and operator of The Asbury. “The success just inspires us to continue to develop programming that will excite and draw visitors all year long.”

In addition to being named the Best New Hotel in America, the hotel recently revealed an interactive art exhibit, “Transparent,” with Danny Clinch, photographer and director. The popup will go through April 2017 and features images from Clinch’s career.

Its winter programming just kicked off, which includes an ice rink open on weekends, and seasonal food and beverage offerings. The opening winter event occurred on Jan. 21, and benefitted Tomorrow’s Children’s Fund, a nonprofit that supports kids fighting cancer.

Summer programming will include burleque shows, open mic nights, trivia, acoustic nights, and drag brunches.

“The success of The Asbury from its launch into the winter season further validated our confidence in Asbury Park’s potential to be a year-round destination,” says Brian Cheripka, senior vice president,  Land and Development for iStar. “We look forward to the many exciting updates 2017 will bring, both for the hotel and our upcoming projects in the city.”

Washington D.C.’s up-and-coming Capitol Riverfront neighborhood is the ideal backdrop for Thompson Hotels’ new 225-room property set to open this winter. Thompson Washington D.C. will flaunt 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views.

 

Pestana Hotel Group has announced that it will be opening its first property in New York. The new hotel, Pestana Park Avenue, is located at 23 E. 39th St. between Park and Madison avenues and within walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations Headquarters, Bryant Park, Fifth Avenue and many more attractions.

 

Situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Despite being just an hour and half from Pittsburgh and 40 minutes from Morgantown airport, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort can be found nestled in the pastoral countryside, surrounded by expansive landscapes of mountains, forests and waterfalls.
