They divided their picks into six categories, including U.S. resorts, affordable luxury, on the water, "splurge" worthy stays, and others. Additionally, they noted, at the end of each entry, properties that have accessible rooms and common spaces that meet or exceed ADA or similar country-specific rules. The Best New Affordable Luxury Hotels Among places in Sumba, Indonesia, and Singapore, a Detroit hotel snagged a spot on the best new affordable luxury hotels list. Roost Detroit is in spot number 9. "Tucked inside Detroit’s iconic Book Tower; this Roost location merges the comforts of a contemporary home with the elegance of a bygone era. The building’s past and future blend seamlessly, thanks to a transformative renovation by the real estate firm Bedrock Detroit.," said one of their editors. The travel magazine highlighted the look of Roost Detroit. The property has been updated with a contemporary art collection curated by the Library Street Collective gallery and features pieces by local artists Senghor Reid and Sydney James. They have a 3,000-square-foot study that also serves as a co-working space and lounge that features private booths and conference rooms. There are several restaurants, including a chic rooftop bar named Kampers and Le Supreme. Number one on their list is the 21c Museum Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. It opened in August 2023 and is located in one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods. "Before the renovated, 10-story neo-Renaissance building found a second life as a hotel, it housed the downtown St. Louis chapter of the YMCA for nearly a century," said the outlet. According to the travel magazine, the hotel only showcases art from the 21st century, each piece hanging from an unexpected place, like on the walls lining the YMCA’'s former basketball court, gloss floors, suspended running track, and all. Even the hotel rooms act as mini-galleries, featuring unconventional layouts and exclusive artwork from artists with strong ties to Missouri.
