New hotels galore
PARIS GAVE LONDON THE RITZ and now London has exported its own hotel concept, with The Hoxton Paris bringing a touch of the 21st-century East End to the 2ème arrondissement (from £145; thehoxton.com). The fifth Hoxton is due to open soon in New York’s Williamsburg, pipped by The Williamsburg Hotel. After an earlier soft launch, the latter is now set to unveil its rooftop bar and pool (from £160; thewilliamsburghotel.com). When colder weather comes to New York, Sri Lanka will be in prime season. The Wild Coast Tented Lodge brings safari-style posh tents to an Indian Ocean beachside spot by Yala National Park (from £290; resplendentceylon.com). In stopover favourite Qatar, florid fantasies run riot at The Mondrian Doha (from £210; morganshotelgroup.com). And, at the budget end, Steel House is a Copenhagen hostel with smart industrial design (double room from £58; steelhousecopenhagen.com).
