The Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings in 2011

January 12, 2011 at 4:01 PM | by | ()

Is the economy up or down or on the mend or what? That is the million, er, trillion dollar question. We're not economic experts here but judging from our Master List of 2011 Openings, we'd have to say that the economy is definitely reviving.

What's on tap for 2011? Lots of brand expansion, particularly from Starwood Hotels. We hope China likes Sheraton! Speaking of China, the hotel rush from last year continues well into this year with brands like Marriott and Hyatt opening like gangbusters all over.

Another country getting more love than in the past? India which will see lots of Starwood, Marriott and Hyatt properties in 2011. However, we're more excited about the hotel revival that seems to be happening in several countries across Europe, but especially in London.

As always, this is just a starting point. We will keep adding and updating these hopeful hotels as we get the info. And instead of handing you some definitive list that cannot be updated or changed, we're relying on you, and us, to keep the list ever-changing, expanding, shrinking or whatever the hospitality gods have in store for us.

Know of a hotel opening in 2011 that's not on this list? Or know of a different opening date than the ones listed here? Put them in comments below.

*As you can see the opening dates change frequently. We are constantly updating this list but for the absolute latest info on the hotel, click the hotel's name and you will be taken to a new page containing the newest stories about that hotel.
