The Top 25 Hotel Brands in the World

July 18th, 2019

“True pioneers in wellness,” as one reader described it, Six Senses delivers innovative treatments, best-in-class amenities, and dining experiences that are as indulgent as they are health-conscious. All of these aspects work in concert to help guests of all ages develop more mindful habits. Also impressive is what another reader touts as the brand’s “incredible commitment to sustainability.” There’s even a designated vice president who oversees initiatives devoted to that purpose, including replacing plastic water bottles with recyclable glass ones at all of the brand’s 17 properties. But perhaps what makes Six Senses’ diverse portfolio so consistently popular among T+L readers is what one fan described as “true emotional hospitality” — the kind of gracious, intuitive service that leaves each guest feeling special and seen.

These are the High Line’s hottest new buildings

April 10th, 2019

Scandinavian superstar Bjarke Ingels’ latest New York project, the XI, just topped out at 76 11th Ave. Its twin twisting towers offer 236 units and views over the High Line and Hudson River. “With its punched windows and gridded structural façade, the XI echoes the pragmatic rationality of the neighborhood’s historic warehouses, while its sculptural geometry gives it a kinship to the local arts community,” Ingels says. No two units are alike in the 36-story project (opening in 2020), but the standout is definitely the 5,663-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bathroom penthouse, asking $28 million. Spanning a southwest corner with a 239-square-foot covered terrace, it sits above a new Six Senses New York Hotel, which emphasizes sustainability and wellness amenities.

A “BIG” Deal: The XI’s Topping Out Party

March 8th, 2019

Yesterday afternoon in Chelsea, we joined a small group to scale the side of a building in a construction hoist for a topping out party. For those not savvy with real estate lingo: a “hoist” is the elevator that operates outside of the building for construction workers to access all levels of a site from the outside before internal elevators are assembled; and a “topping out” party is a celebration for when all concrete has been poured and sealed on every level of a project. The scenario was one for something truly special—The XI, developed by HFZ Capital Group and designed by Bjarke Ingels.
