Our Favorite New Hotels of 2018

When planning a trip, so much of the focus is on the destination, but we think that the right hotel is sometimes even more important than the destination! Because of this, we work hard to learn more about you, your style, who you are traveling with, and your likes & dislikes, so that we can best match you to your hotel. As part of our job, we travel and visit as many hotels as possible so that we can see them firsthand. We are also constantly reading articles, press releases, and listening to webinars about new hotels, renovated properties, and locations. Lastly, we have multiple meetings every week with hotel owners and managers briefing us on their new hotel updates, openings, and other news. All of this information better helps us match you to your perfect hotel. If you’re looking to plan your next trip and don’t know where you want to go, perhaps make your choice based on the hotel this time! Read ahead for our top 5 favorite new hotels of 2018!
