Three hotels have unveiled plans to debut this summer: the Arrive East Austin in Texas, the Hotel Indigo Williamsburg Brooklyn in New York City and the citizenM Boston North Station.

Arrive East Austin

The 83-room Arrive East Austin is slated to open its doors July 10. The hotel will include two restaurants—Vixen’s Wedding and Lefty’s Brick Bar—as well as a gin bar and a coffee shop. Without a welcome desk, guests here will check in at the hotel bar and direct any requests via text message to a number listed on their room key. The hotel will mark the third hotel opening for Arrive Hotels & Restaurants. The brand launched its first hotel, the 32-room Arrive Palm Springs (Calif.), in 2016.
