The Cloudveil, an Autograph Collection Hotel
The Cloudveil, an Autograph Collection Hotel, has made its debut in the heart of Jackson Hole, WY.

Designed by TruexCullins, CLB Architects and the IBI Group, The Cloudveil evokes Jackson Hole’s history and natural setting. As a nod to the oldest standing building on Town Square, the design team found inspiration for the hotel’s exterior through mixed-use of stately stone walls, wood and metals. The lobby features a three-story granite stone wall and oversized wood-burning fireplace anchored by a 3,000-lb. boulder front desk.

Venice V Hotel
Proper Hospitality has opened the Venice V Hotel in Los Angeles’ Venice Beach community. Set in a 1915 landmark building originally called The Waldorf, the beachfront property draws inspiration from Venice’s legendary skate park and surf scene.

Located on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, each of the boutique hotel’s 34 rooms, suites, penthouses and rooftop bungalows offers Pacific Ocean views. Rooms and suites feature open floor plans, hardwood floors and walk-in showers, while seven rooftop bungalows have private entrances.

Throughout the building, original period details are also revealed in exposed interior riveted steel beams, a central grand staircase and the restored elevator. Venice’s art culture is on display with local art pieces in each guestroom, as well as a 12 x 12 ft. lobby mural constructed entirely of 4,000 skateboard wheels.
