The YOTEL brand expands its East Coast footprint beyond New York City and Boston with a new opening planned for Washington, D.C. this fall. The YOTEL brand is known for its modern, tech-forward design and unique social settings.
YOTEL overtakes a current property to create YOTEL, Washington, D.C., transforming all existing guestrooms into signature YOTEL “cabins.” The lobby gets a tech-forward upgrade, with self-service check-in kiosks for a more efficient check-in experience. The hotel’s 21,000 square feet of meeting and event space also receives an upgrade. When complete, the hotel will offer more than 400 guestrooms.
The property’s current Art and Soul restaurant remains, with a few slight changes to both décor and menu. The rooftop terrace receives new life as well, resulting in one of the largest rooftops and pool decks in the area.
“We are part of a progressive culture and movement here on The Hill and we’re incredibly proud to be the first hotel to usher in a new generation of YOTEL travel experiences to complement this evolving neighborhood,” said Shawn Jervis, general manager, YOTEL Washington, D.C. “YOTEL is at the forefront of innovation, hospitality and design and we look forward to showing visitors a fresh way to stay on Capitol Hill.”
“Our rapid global expansion is very exciting and further asserts our prominence in the United States and on the world stage. We have a proven track record operating globally with hotels in many of the key feeder markets to Washington — Boston, New York, San Francisco and Europe,” added Hubert Viriot, CEO, YOTEL. “Furthermore, the hotel offering in Washington is fairly traditional and YOTEL is ready to introduce our cleverly designed cabins ideal for short and long stays.”

Homer and Janet by Homer Review
The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.

Escape to Colorado with The Sebastian – Vail
Review: InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: Shortly after 1 p.m., our Uber driver delivered my husband and me to the drive-up entrance of the Wilshire Grand building, the tallest building on the West Coast and home to InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. Attentive valets greeted us and directed us to the dedicated elevator, which whisked us up to the 70th-floor lobby. Though it was early afternoon, our room was ready, and the desk staff checked us in quickly and directed us to the elevator to our 53rd-floor room. We strolled past several comfortable seating areas and a large bar and lounge, tastefully adorned with understated holiday décor. All were wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows, affording stunning views of the sun-splashed city and the ocean beyond.

Review: Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: After an early-morning departure from the East Coast followed by several flight delays and a long Uber transfer from LAX, I was quite happy to finally arrive at the circular driveway of Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza. Entering the glass doors into the light-filled lobby, I was immediately greeted by a pleasant aroma in the air and no line at the check- in desk. Check-in was speedy, and individually packaged baked goods and water awaited arriving guests.
