Who Opened, Who Didn't and Who's About to This Month
When we released our Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings for 2013 we promised we'd be keeping tabs on these hotels throughout the year. And we weren't playing around.
Aside from giving 5 hotel openings we're excited for and putting some hotels on the naughty delayed list, along with another 10 hotels to get psyched about, we're now doing monthly check-ins on the hotels listed on that master list. We'll also be highlighting some new properties that didn't initially make the list. As usual, we could always use your help. So drop in your hotel openings, hotel delays and new hotel tips in comments below!
