According to the countdown clock on the official website for Hotel 718, the new lodging house will start accepting guests at the beginning of April. The hotel, which is at 231 Duffield Street, between the Fulton Mall and Willoughby Street, has been in the works since 2009. This stretch of Duffield has become quite the hotel row, as there is both a Sheraton and an Aloft directly across the street. The hotel will also have a ground-floor restaurant called the Marrow run by the co-owners of the West Village restaurants Perilla and Kin Shop, but a glimpse behind the glass of the restaurant space makes us wonder if it will open at the same time as the hotel, because it still looks quite raw. The 128-room property will have stuff like a sundeck and a fitness room, but no word yet on rates.
