It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and we’re about to make your holiday season even more memorable by dropping the legendary Master List of 2019 Worldwide Hotel Openings. We know: it’s just what you wanted.

So, before you get all wrapped up in festive cheer and go to town on adding drunken, er, merry Boomerangs to your Insta-story, put down the hot toddy for a few minutes and take a gander at all the beautiful shiny presents we’ve picked out for you. These are the gifts that will keep giving throughout the year!

As is our tradition, the Master List singles out the newest batch of design, boutique, experiential, luxurious and innovative hotels across the world. Of course, there are always many openings from larger hotel brands, which are often included because of a desirable location or a new concept. And, to be honest, with all the consolidation that’s happened in the past few years, many hotels out there are now part of a larger brand.  #Fact. Still, many of hotels listed below have those cheeky rebellious qualities that we just can’t get enough of.*

Now, if this is your first time looking at The Master List, we only have one suggestion: bookmark this page so you can quickly (and frequently) come back to it. Ok, we have one more suggestion: if there’s an opening we missed, please do leave a comment to let us know! Sharing is caring, after all. 

Wishing you all a fun and fabulous 2019,

XOXO, LE Miami

*Of course, many of these hotels will be subject to delays. And some hotels may actually never open.

What’s interesting in 2019

  • This might be the year that Virgin Hotels begins to follow through with their plans for domination, since San Francisco, Las Vegas, and New York are all on the calendar for 2019.
  • Everyone and their mother is opening a resort in the Maldives this year, so make sure you’re bikini-ready!
  • In Europe, Marriott’s fun-loving Moxy Hotels will be making the rounds, as will Kimpton Hotels.
  • In Asia, Capella is making a return with a Bangkok property, while the Raffles Singapore, an institution of sorts, will reopen after a long renovation process.
  • New York is always opening lots of new hotels, and this year is no different; but what stands out is the TWA Hotel set to land at JFK.
  • Los Angeles’ hotel scene continues to be incredibly exciting with two Proper Hotels set to open along with a Hoxton, an EDITION, a Pendry and a Park Hyatt.

2019 seems like a great year to finally be bicoastal, wouldn’t you say?
