The Drifter Hotel

Built in 1956, The Drifter Hotel restores mid-century nostalgia to New Orleans' Mid-City. From the neon sign to the vintage light fixtures, the low-rise is a love letter to a bygone era. Check-in starts at a warm wood and tile bar, also serving specialty coffees from La Colombe, while a mix of food trucks and on-site pop-ups host a variety of palates. The 20 rooms and suites are decked out in custom retro-inspired furnishings and pastel hues, offering views of the pool and tropical courtyard. Drinks are served at the poolside bar and include a mix of frozen cocktails, Japanese beers and sakes, and local wines to be enjoyed under the floating disco ball.

  • Jackalope Hotel

    Backed by the vineyards of the Mornington Peninsula wine region, the Jackalope Hotel offsets its rustic landscape with a whimsical scheme. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a 20-foot sculpture of the hotel's mythical mascot by Emily Floyd. This art-driven motif is continued throughout the space with curated pieces and installations from artists and designers known around the world. Custom tile, rain showers, and Japanese baths accompany the 46 dens. While contemporary in design, each room features floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces to welcome in views of the surround fields. A pair of restaurants offer two unique dining experiences — an alchemy-inspired joint where you can dine under a 10,000-lamp Jan Flook chandelier or wine bar serving the local produce in the atmosphere it was created.

  • Detroit Foundation Hotel

    Housed in the former Fire Department Headquarters, the Detroit Foundation Hotel pays homage to the city's past while showcasing its bright future. Large arched doorways, vaulted ceilings, original marble flooring, and exposed brick exhibit the DNA of the historic building, working as a backdrop to the artwork and installations of neighboring artists. The 100 guest rooms are a testament to the modern Motor City as everything from the iron-welded door handles and bottle openers to the wallpaper and in-room private bar are crafted by local artisans, while antique woodwork and vintage rugs maintain the historic aesthetic. The full Detroit experience it capped off by a ground-floor restaurant, helmed by Michigan-native Chef Thomas Lents.
