BY KATE WAHNSCHAFFE — Fall 2018
1. In May, Joie de Vivre debuted its first Baltimore property, the 14-story, 107-room Hotel Revival in the city’s Mount Vernon neighborhood. Highlights include two restaurants, three distinctive karaoke rooms, and works from more than 30 artists on display throughout. Grab a bite at the hotel’s year-round rooftop Topside restaurant and bar, which features views of the first Washington Monument and serves up seafood and local beers, with 13 brews on tap, as well as more than 60 bottles and cans from which to choose. From $159. 410-727-7101; jdvhotels.com
2. Housed in nine united 19th-century warehouses, the 196-room Eliza Jane hotel — part of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt and opened in March — draws inspiration from the former business spaces it now occupies in New Orleans’ Central Business District, just two blocks from the French Quarter. You’ll find small plates, cocktails, and coffee at the hotel’s Press Room lobby bar, which references the building’s ties to the Daily Picayune newspaper, decorated with old books, typewriters, and other antiques. For happy hour and dinner, stop in at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Couvant, which offers variations on classic French brasserie fare. From $200. 504-882-1234; theelizajane.hyatt.com
3. In the heart of Savannah’s Historic District, look for Georgia’s new peach: the Perry Lane Hotel, which opened in June. This Luxury Collection Hotel boasts three dining options, a rooftop pool and sundeck, 8,900 square feet of meeting and event space, fitness center, retail space, and more. Its 167 rooms exude a residential feel with oversize windows, lush fabrics, leather headboards, deeply hued walls, and eye-catching art. During your stay, borrow books from the hotel’s lending library, take a guided walking architectural tour of the area, or attend lectures by visiting artists and authors. From $239. 912-415-9000; perrylanehotel.com
