Everybody’s Got A Rooftop: New Hotels with Skyline Lounging

new and renovated

The Ven at Embassy Row, Washington D.C.

Named the Danish word for “friend,” the 231-room Tribute Portfolio hotel opened this March in Dupont Circle. The hotel embraces the Scandinavian concept of “hygge” with elements like minimalist design, tea service and rooftop sunrise yoga classes to invigorate guests. Three flexible meeting spaces total 1,358 sq. ft. to rendezvous, with a private dining room and rooftop pool and bar also available to reserve. The Red Line Metro Station is just minutes away to whisk guests to the capitol’s many landmarks and attractions.

Hyatt House and Hyatt Place Tampa Downtown, Florida

The 17-story building just across from Tampa’s city hall offers guests a unique layout with a single lobby serving both the 230-room Hyatt Place and the 115-room Hyatt House. Design harkens to the area’s Havana influences, with jewel and citrus shades, tropical leaf motifs and vintage Cuban movie posters. The property has 3,600 sq. ft. of event space, a heated rooftop pool, fitness center and lobby floor restaurant. Its proximity to downtown Tampa, Tampa Convention Center and Tampa Riverwalk is a further plus.

The Pendry West Hollywood, Los Angeles

Old Hollywood glamour meets modern luxury at this newly opened Los Angeles property. With 149 Art Deco-inspired guest rooms and suites, 13,948 sq. ft. of meeting space and sweeping city views right on the Sunset Strip, it’s perfectly suited for guests wanting to soak up L.A.’s art and entertainment scene. And they don’t even have to leave the hotel. A private social club, rooftop pool and bowling alley are located on property, as well as an entertainment venue, screening room and curated art collection—plus two Wolfgang Puck-created restaurants.

106 Jefferson, Huntsville, Alabama

This Curio Collection by Hilton property opens this summer with 115 guest rooms in downtown Huntsville—the self-proclaimed “space city” gets a nod to its key role in the U.S. space program via the hotel’s rooftop bar and eatery (Baker + Able), named for  the first primates to survive a test flight into space. A grand ballroom and 2,000 sq. ft. of event space provide for smaller gatherings, in addition to the rooftop bar and a private dining room. Space-race era modern design, 12 luxury suites, chef-driven restaurant Revivalist and a 24-hour fitness center are just some of the other perks taking this property to new heights.
