    Best new hotels in the world include three peaceful stays in Upstate NY



    If you’ve got the post-holiday itch to travel, a list of the best new hotels that opened in 2022 has just been released by national publication Travel + Leisure (T+L) and three properties in Upstate New York have been included.

    The list of 100 hotels spans across 35 countries including Italy, South Africa, Paris, Maldives, across the United States and beyond. T+L writes that the list includes both indulgent stays and familiar brands that are at the top of their game and offering something new to travelers.

    Here is who they highlighted from Upstate New York:

    Piaule Catskill

    Owned by a homeware brand of the same name Piaule Catskill is a 24-room boutique hotel with a minimalist design overlooking the mountains.

    Its name, the French slang word for “digs,” is placed on a former bluestone quarry in Catskill, and the grounds include state-protected wetlands and nature preserves.

    The hotel features stand-alone single and double cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows and rain-shower bathrooms. Some come with outdoor decks and living rooms as well.

    The property also includes a spa which highlights a hot pool, mineral plunge, steam room, cedar sauna, and small pool.

    Take a group or private class of yoga or meditation, or book yourself an experience with massages, sound baths, and more. Travel and Leisure writes that the hotel, tucked into the forest, encourages the visitor to do nothing at all, but just enjoy the scenery.

    Inness

    Situated on half of a former golf club, Accord’s Inness is located just south of the Catskill Mountains. There are just 28 cabins each with a king bed, kitchenette with mini-fridge, french press, electric kettle, and table settings for two, stocked minibar, and a dining table.

    Each come with a private deck, including the expansive two bedroom king cabin.

    You don’t have to be an overnight guest to experience their restaurant with vintage chairs from a Belgian church and floor to ceiling windows that offer grand views of the grounds and the perfect place to catch a sunset over the mountains.

    The best part of the T+L editor’s visit? The complimentary snow tubes set out to zoom down their sledding hill on a winter’s day.

    Hutton Brickyards

    Sprawling across the Hudson Valley riverfront, an abandoned brickyard in Kingston was redeveloped by the partners at Salt Hotels, creating Hutton Brickyards.

    Over 30 cabins sit on 73 acres filled with details of yesteryear behind like a brick beach, half-sunken barges, and the remains of a brick-firing kiln. There is also a spa on the property with private wooden barrel saunas available to book.

    According to T+L, guest perks include breakfast delivered to your cabin as well as cocktails, if you choose to post your “Thirsty” flag outside your door during cocktail hour.

    The property recently opened a dozen guest rooms in Edgewood, a historic 1870s mansion where one of the brickyard’s owners once lived.

    According to Kingstonwire, in December, Hutton Brickyards and Salt Hotels have gone their separate ways. A rainstorm just before Christmas caused major flooding and damaged the property significantly, according to the Brickyard’s owner.

    The hotel’s website reads that it is closed for the winter to perform renovations and reopen under new management, Hutton Brickyards and Edgewood mansion is slated to re-open in spring of 2023. The properties have not yet announced who will be taking over the reins.
