As a new year sneaks upon us, we can’t help but think of all that we have to look forward to next year, including some spectacular hotel openings from top luxury brands. As rebound travel continues to surge, so does the desire to experience new places. While there are many, many exciting hotel openings to look forward to next year, we have carefully curated the top ten that we are most excited about and know our clients will most enjoy.
Our affiliation with Brownell and Virtuoso provides you with access to exclusive value-added amenities for your hotel stays.

Something else to look forward to is the opening of the first Orient Express Hotel Minerva, opening in 2025 in Rome.
