New and Renovated: Coast to Coast

Portland Regency Hyatt, Oregon

This 600-room property—which is accepting reservations beginning Jan. 7—is directly adjacent to Oregon Convention Center and smack-dab in the middle of the city’s neighborhood divisions. It’s a full-service hotel with 20 event venues spanning 38,000 sq. ft., a multicultural barbecue restaurant and a 24-hour guest market with local treats and snacks. The property is just a few miles from the Portland International Airport (PDX) and a quick walk from a MAX rail station.

Graduate Annapolis, Maryland

This 216-room addition to the spirited coastal swatch of Annapolis spunkily tributes the surrounding collegiate Navy influences and bayside culture. With a refreshingly modern seafaring style throughout and more than 20,000 sq. ft. of event space, guests find their sea legs in no time. Fresh tastes aren’t limited to decor:  The coffee shop serves up breakfast sandwiches and third-wave coffee, while Camp Severn’s bay-inspired menu and nautical cocktails help you bring the day into harbor.

The Hoxton, Downtown LA

The uniquely concepted Hoxton has brought its upscale communal vibe to the Fashion District. It boasts 174 guest rooms, in four different sizes. The Apartment, the brand’s event space, hosts up to 120 people and offers home-away-from-home intimacy. It’s accessible to The Pantry, a gorgeous gathering-friendly kitchen space, prestocked for get-togethers. Groups can also utilize Sibling Rival, an all-day lobby restaurant, or head to the rooftop for poolside nibbles or dinner, backset by city views.

Hotel Effie, Miramar Beach, Florida

It provides 250 guest rooms and 65,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, as well as 2,400 acres of beaches, bike trails and a bayfront that includes 15 tennis courts and four championship golf courses.
