Hotels schedule 2023 openings

Bluebird Lake Placid, January 2023

Lark Hotels is adding the Bluebird Lake Placid (N.Y.) to its growing Bluebird by Lark portfolio, a collection of redesigned, contemporary hotels, motels and ski lodges. Slated to open its first phase on Jan. 11, Bluebird is conducting extensive renovations of the downtown property to open Bluebird Lake Placid throughout 2023. Bluebird has opened three properties in the past year.

Bluebird Lake Placid will have be a lakeside retreat with 90 rooms. With interiors designed by Elder & Ash, Bluebird Lake Placid will echo the secluded ambiance of the surrounding mountains and Lake Placid’s history as a longtime vacation destination. The design of the hotel will stray from the classic Adirondack-style of the region, instead taking cues from Scandinavian and Japanese alpine influences that focus on natural materials, muted colors, clean lines and curated furnishings inspired by year-round alpine activities.

Eastwind Oliverea Valley, January 2023

Eastwind Hotels is set to open the Eastwind Oliverea Valley in January, bringing its Scandinavian-inspired accommodations to New York's Catskills region. Eastwind Oliverea Valley has an on-site restaurant and bar, pool and a new room category.

The third property from founders Bjorn Boyer, Julija Stoliarova and Dan Cipriani is the brand’s first ground-up build. It will have designer-curated midcentury vintage furnishings across its 30 rooms, all of which will have different layouts and decor curated by Stoliarova. 

The all-weather, wood A-frame freestanding cabins will be available in four types, all outfitted with queen beds: Lushna cabins, Lushna cabins with decks, Lushna suites and double Lushnas, a new category catering to more varied guest needs. Some rooms will have vintage desks, rain showers, seating nooks, private patios and refrigerators. The accommodations are meant to highlight the natural surroundings with the use of earth tones, organic materials and vintage decor.
