It’s that time of year when all the Top travel lists of 2015 are revealed – when Travel & Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, New York Times, Andrew Harper, Indagare and the like publish and circulate their lists of the hottest destinations and hotels for the year ahead. Admittedly, I devour them all.
Over the last few months, I edited names several times while assembling our own personal annual list of favorite new hotel openings. There are so many new places (both in 2014 and anticipated ones for 2015) we are excited to check out, that I had a hard time paring them down to our usual 15 – so this year we have three more than usual. Some will be expected (you know, the ones you see on almost every travel list) and some will hopefully be welcome surprises. As we already reviewed and posted some exceptional new openings last year – Nizuc in Cancun, Ham Yard Hotel in London and Park Hyatt Vienna – they will be noticeably missing.
