Grand Bohemian

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Av had an event at the new Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook, a Birmingham neighborhood. We haven't stayed the night here, but after seeing these pics he took, I'm ready.

There's a small series of Grand Bohemian hotels, which are Kessler Collection, which are in turn part of Marriott's 'Autograph Collection'.

The on-site restaurant (another ampersand restaurant!), Habitat Feed and Social, seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of place, but I'm also interested in their cooking school (the instructor until very recently was Clif Holt who has just returned to Little Savannah).

The new site Suiteness aims to help guests get in bigger/better accommodations -- and hotels get more occupancy in suites (which are occupied only about 20% of the time). From TechCrunch:

Plus, the nicest ones aren’t listed or even available to book on hotel’s websites. Brands are afraid to showcase their unique inventory, and assume that the suites will be filled by loyal VIPs who wouldn’t book online anyways.

Suiteness isn't yet in many cities, and none yet in the South, though if you're just thinking geographically there is Miami, but I just checked availability for Las Vegas, and the rates (well, some of them anyway) weren't as astronomical as I would have imagined. A one bedroom suite at the Venetian for a couple of dates I put in were just low $300s, and the penthouse suite at the Bellagio, 1500+ sq ft, was low $500s. Of course, the Nobu penthouse was almost $3000. Best part: the pics the site has of all the rooms.
