Tips and deals of the week: Loco2.com; WestHouse, New York; Spanish Tourist Office iPad magazine

The website

Loco2.com launches a new system on Tuesday, enabling you to book multi-leg European rail journeys originating in the UK in one transaction. This also brings protection if you miss a train because of an earlier late-running departure.

The hotel

WestHouse opens on Wednesday 27 November with 172 1920s- and Art Deco-inspired bedrooms near Columbus Circle in New York – just in time for Thanksgiving. Doubles from $609 (£406), room only (westhousehotelnewyork.com).

The app

The Spanish Tourist Office has launched the first edition of its quarterly iPad arts magazine, SPN. It features an interview with Manolo Blahnik, a message from Ferran Adrià and tips on how to enjoy Ibiza in winter. Free, from iTunes.
