World of Wonder 

Hotel Bardo Savannah
Private dining room in Saint Bibiana at Hotel Bardo Savannah

The opening of Hotel Bardo Savannah transforms a 19th century Southern Gothic structure into an urban resort and private club with a “riot clash” aesthetic. The two-acre resort features an eclectic design throughout, with extensive art pieces, numerous tiny gardens along the pathway to the resort pool and more surprises. The concept was developed by New York City-based real estate development and hospitality firm LEFT LANE, which specializes in transforming historic properties.

The property’s onsite restaurant, Saint Bibiana, serves coastal Italian fare. Bar Bibi, the pool bar, maintains the theme with smaller coastal Italian bites and a refreshing cocktail menu. The property also debuts a holistic gym and wellness spa concept with Saltgrass, offering an extensive menu of restorative wellness experiences and a broad athletics program.

All 149 guest rooms emulate the hotel’s design aesthetic. Whether in a ground floor poolside room with a private garden, an upstairs suite with a Juliet balcony or a suite with a dedicated chef’s kitchen, guests are in for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Every event space offers its own character: The Carriage House, with a private event lawn, pays homage to the property’s former life as an 1800s mansion; spaces of diverse sizes are spread throughout the property, from private dining rooms to high-design spaces. Event space surpasses 15,000+ sq. ft., not including the option for tented events outdoors.

The Study at Johns Hopkins New and Renovated
Guest room at The Study at Johns Hopkins

Study Hotels expands its portfolio with the opening of The Study at Johns Hopkins. It stands at the main gate of Johns Hopkins University campus, at the heart of the historic Charles Village neighborhood in North Baltimore.

The new property is an adaptive reuse—the building’s 100-year-old historic façade was restored and is celebrated in the community. Inside, guests will find a space that emulates an academic spirit and the university’s personality as they immediately encounter a collection of a life-size montage of historical artifacts painted by artist Christie DeNizio. 115 guest rooms and suites provide abundant natural light and warm furnishings plus the brand’s characteristic leather reading chair, as well as writing desks and large, operable windows.

The onsite restaurant Dear Charles, too, provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere that seeks to inspire a sense of history and belonging, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner to both walk-ins and reservations.

Its public space, referred to as the “Living Room,” is furnished with eclectic furniture and large bookcases, as well as an active art gallery. 2,500 sq. ft. of private meeting space make for an all-around inspiring and unique experience for groups.

The Finer Things in Life

W Boston New and Renovated
Meeting space at W Boston

W Boston unveils a multi-million-dollar renovation of its 5,000 square foot meeting and event space, with a distinct stylish redesign that emulates the hotel’s celebration of the “rebels” of Boston’s past and the values of originality and individuality. The hotel partnered with Boston-based artist Cedric Douglas, who created a large-scale artwork of outstretched hands touching—the piece serves as a symbol of the connection that will rise from the meetings that take place there. Organic textures, such as wood and granite, create an ambient atmosphere that reflects the property’s brand evolution.

Studio spaces of a range of sizes can accommodate different group sizes and feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the city. Technology, such as a wired business center and 80-inch wireless TV studios with built-in ceiling projectors offer a space for innovation to flourish.

The property’s commitment to sustainability inspired a green renovation process and green meeting options. Planners can work with the onsite F&B team to curate their event menus. W Boston offers 235 guest rooms, including two WOW Suites and one “Extreme WOW” Suite.
