Welcome to our first hotels issue. Naturally,

we cover various hotels throughout the year, but this
issue was created to take a deeper dive into a handful of
innovative properties and brands, along with the people
behind them.
There's a lot to celebrate in these pages, but a few
highlights include a look at two brands shaking things up
(pages 29 and 35); five new hoteliers who are rethinking
the norm (page 55); four hotel leaders who are elevating
their brands with fully immersive experiences (page 91);
and three standout projects that defy expectations (page
105). One is the restoration of Eero Saarinen's former
TWA terminal at JFK Airport into a hotel. Rarely has
there been such fanfare over an opening, but architecture, history, and aviation buffs
alike have been flocking to the highly anticipated redo, and with good reason.
What struck me, besides its amazing backstory, is the incredible collaboration that
it took to seamlessly marry such an extensive and authentic preservation with two
new hotel towers. You feel like you have gone back in time when you walk through the
building, and that's partly because each person involved, from owner Tyler Morse to
the designers and architects, considered this a passion project and greatly respected the
building-understanding the responsibility and the opportunity involved in working on
such an iconic project. It may look like they used a light touch, but the amount of work
that went into creating what it is today is astounding. As Richard Southwick, partner
and director of historic preservation at Beyer Blinder Belle, who has been working on the
building for some two decades said during our interview, "If we do our job right, people
will forget what it looked like before we started."
In the fall, we're partnering with a few iconic hoteliers for what will be an exciting
slate of events. Ian Schrager, whose advice had an impact on Brad Wilson of Ace Hotels
(page 98), will be headlining our second annual HD Elevate conference on September
18th in New York. In an intimate conversation, the visionary hotelier (and our 2018 guest
editor) will share tidbits of his career, the secrets to his success, and what's next-an
appearance not to miss. Head to hdelevate.com for tickets.
We are also excited to announce our 2019 guest editor will be Kit Kemp, cofounder
of Firmdale Hotels. Under her guidance, the November issue will celebrate the craft,
art, and color that define her signature, layered spaces, which, thanks to her attention to
detail and artisanship, have attracted a cult following. We're looking forward to what she
comes up with.
I hope to see you at one of our upcoming events in New York: whether it's Elevate,
Women in Design (October 4th), CitySCENE (October 10th), BDNY (November 10th-11th),
or Platinum Circle (November 12th). Until then, enjoy the rest of the summer.
