Here’s one way to quickly forget the horrors of 2016—by visualizing yourself visiting all these gorgeous new hotels that will* open in 2017. Once again, we introduce the Master List of 2017 Worldwide Hotel Openings. And as always, it’s a lengthy one. Get ready to scroll! (At least we didn’t make it one of those nauseating slideshows. #yourewelcome.)

For those of you reading on the go–and honestly, who isn’t these days?—we have some TL; DR summary notes for you to whiz through.

In keeping with Master List tradition, we tried to limit this list even further to the unicorns of the hotel world, a tough task as design and boutique hotels become more formulaic than ever before. However, there are some big box hotel names on the list due to either location or significance (i.e. the opening of a handful of Canopy by Hilton Hotels, the chain’s attempt at wooing millennials.)

Geographically, when it comes to the most exciting city, New York is still hot hot hot. Even better, master hotelier Ian Schrager will debut his second-ever PUBLIC Hotel in New York this spring. (Unfortunately Schrager’s peaced out of the original in Chicago.) He’ll also sprinkle his hotel magic on four more EDITION Hotels throughout the world, if everything goes well. As for the EDITION Times Square, that will be coming sometime in 2018.

However, London, Los Angeles, Austin (randomly) and Los Cabos all have exciting AF openings set for this year. Predictably, Asia and the Middle East are fertile ground for over-the-top luxury hotel brands including St. Regis, Rosewood, and Bulgari. Other notable openings here and there include Ace Hotel Chicago, Pendry San Diego (a new lifestyle brand from Montage Hotels), SLS Seattle, a Bunkhouse hotel in Todos Santos, the return of Hotel de Crillon in Paris, W Tel Aviv, Andaz Singapore, and the Jackalope Melbourne. We’re sure many more hotties will be dropped into our laps as the year goes on!

Now for those of you who can linger, let’s make our way through the list, starting with Miami, of course.

As always, we’ve done our best to post the most current opening dates we could find but never fear, we’ll be updating those dates as the year progresses. And if there’s anything we’ve forgotten, leave us a comment at the bottom of the post and we’ll add it to the list.

*Of course, many of these will be subject to delays.
