Hotels coming soon!
After the whirl of the festive season, life is settling back down into its usual routines. And it’s only natural to be looking ahead to the next adventure already, to the next time that we can relax and shake off the stresses of the everyday. If you’re still looking for a neat reward for those New Year’s resolutions, there’s a veritable treat to be had in some high-end holiday living!
We’ve all heard the stories about arriving at your holiday destination and the hotel not being finished but if you’re looking to go upscale, then 2015 will see a raft of new luxury accommodation being completed. There are some hot hotels in great destinations about to open and you can get in early to sample their riches!
The Flexicover Team looks up a selection for you to investigate!

The hotel will have a vast rooftop bar and terrace with amazing views of the Big Apple. There will be a casual café in the lower ground level as well as a signature restaurant, Charlie Palmer @ The Knick’, on the fourth floor.
