The Hottest Boutique Hotel Openings of Fall 2023

From Asheville to Athens, we’ve rounded up our favorite boutique hotels due to open this autumn. Read on to see which ones made our wish list. 

The Radical (Asheville, NC)

East coasters have been moving left and right to Asheville, North Carolina. For those who want to visit and see what all the hype is about, elect to stay at The Radical: a formerly-derelict 1920s-era cereal factory rebirthed as a boutique hotel packing 70 guestrooms & suites. Towering raw concrete pillars, exposed brick walls, and eclectic street art permeate the setting. Set in the River Arts District, The Radical will open in October.

Life House, Palm Springs (Palm Springs, CA)

Boutique hotel group Life House opens its doors for the first time on the West Coast. The 66-key stay occupies an erstwhile edifice initially constructed in 1965. The design ethos draws inspiration from Pam Springs’ iconic midcentury architecture, pairing it with Japanese minimalism and desert botanical motifs. The pool bar & cabanas are perfect for those who love to sit under the sun and read a book. 

Romeo Roma (Rome, Italy)

Romeo Roma is the late iconic architect Zaha Hadid’s final expression and work. Opening in December, the palatial building will stock 75 guestrooms & suites inside. Expect a revamped 1500s noble-owned palazzo with 16th-century frescoes, a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse, an indoor & outdoor pool, plus a Sisley Paris spa.

Brown Spices (Athens, Greece)

Athens’ buzzy neighborhood of Psiri will welcome Brown Spices this month: a 63-key boutique hotel with a namesake that nods to the area’s spice markets. It occupies two interwar epochal buildings with a preserved 1930s façade connected via an atrium. Three Mediterranean-centric restaurants, a rooftop pool & bar, plus an in-house spa equipped with a Swedish sauna, hammam, and two treatment rooms amplify guests’ stays here.

Hemlock Neversink (Upstate New York)

This retreat in Upstate New York spans 230 acres dotted with 33 guestrooms. Individual wellness plans for guests, a nature-concentrated spa, and rural surroundings that brew a sense of calm are on the menu here.

Mollie Aspen (Aspen, CO)

Mollie Aspen will premier this December in Colorado’s poshest ski town. The 68-key boutique hotel sports a blend of understated luxury and residential comfort: natural woods, earthen ceramics, and hand-dyed textiles dominate the décor. A lobby bar and restaurant with year-round outdoor seating, a laid-back all-day café, plus a top-floor rooftop pool and terrace that transforms into a buzzy lounge by night are what you can expect here.

The Fifth Avenue Hotel (New York City, NY)

Opening in New York’s Midtown neighborhood this season, it’s almost certain The Fifth Avenue Hotel will be one of Manhattan’s coolest new haunts. A mirror-clad lobby and visionary design by Martin Brudnizki have piqued our interest as boutique hotel nerds. 

The Rounds at Scribner’s (Hunter, NY)

Opening Fall 2023 in Upstate New York, Scribner’s Catskills Lodge will debut The Rounds at Scribner’s: 12 private lodges situated north of the property’s existing buildings. Contemporary and vintage furniture pieces, private outdoor cedar soaking tubs & showers, plus a central oculus that’s perfect for those who like to look at the starry sky are all on the agenda when staying here.
