Luckily, you have us. And we’re obsessed with new hotels. Here’s a list of hotels that have opened – or are opening – this month.

London is never short on devastatingly cool hotels, but L’Oscar is hoping to jump to the front of the pack. For starters, the property has an alluring history as a former church, first built in 1906, in the West End neighbourhood of Holburn. Second, it’s got designer Jacques Garcia (the mastermind behind the fame of La Mamounia and NoMad), who creates an elegant atmosphere in the hotel’s 39 rooms through seductive décor. It’s also got an intriguing website, with as many hidden nooks and secret doors as we imagine the property will have in real life. Oh, one last thing: the name is a nod to Oscar Wilde, so expect things to get weird.
Rates start at around £395 a night.
The Southern California–bred luxury brand will take its five-star service and relaxed design style South of the border with Montage Los Cabos, which is due to open at the end of this month on the Santa Maria Bay. The resort promises 122 guest rooms, suites and casas, as well as 52 Montage Residences, a Spa Montage, farm-to-table restaurants, two pools and a children’s club. Even better, it’s located on a swimmable beach – a rarity for Cabo.
Rates start at around $825 a night.
Joie de Vivre Hotels have opened their latest spot in the Mount Vernon hood of downtown Baltimore. The 110-room hotel has some crazy-cute guest rooms that, yes, may be a bit heavily decorated, but they feel more authentic than most new hotels that are geared towards millennials. Also, this hotel has rentable karaoke rooms on-site – which is just the greatest thing ever. Now, we only need an excuse to get to Baltimore.
Rates start at around $141 a night.
