Six Hot New Hotels

April 26, 2011

Travellers have come to expect a binary relationship with their lodgings: super cool, fleetingly “hot” hotels with the focus on style over service.

Now that’s changing. Fast. Paris is a perfect example: revamping its famed “palace” hotels even as three major foreign players descend on the City of Light. London is another perfect example. Ahead of next year’s Olympics, there’s been nothing short of a stampede to open refurbished or entirely new hotels to serve the hordes that will surely come to the capital.

The biggest statements are coming from global brands such as the W chain, or high-end international operators such as the Dorchester Collection, about to announce the opening of their latest property, 45 Park Lane.

So, whether you choose a remarkable five-villa resort at the end of the world or opt to go local with an international chain, don’t expect to stint on style in search of a great stay. Find below the images of 6 hot new Hotels to have a look at:
