Since 2020 has been a wash in many ways when it comes to being able to follow through with your travel plans with friends and family, we are always curious to see what new hotels might be coming our way in the coming months. As many of the primary hospitality brands are powering forward with construction and renovations of hotels around the world, we were able to connect with the team at Hilton to explore what they have on the horizon. We like what we see, and here are 10 exciting Hilton hotel projects that are creating a lot of buzz in the industry, including one major project that actually includes three individual Hilton properties.

“Travel is an unstoppable force, and thanks to new research from Hilton, we know our guests are eager to get back to exploring the world and creating new memories with friends and families,” said Danny Hughes, Executive Vice President and President, Americas. “We are ready to welcome them back to our incredible portfolio of hotels in the Americas, including at some of our newest properties opening in 2021. From luxury hotels in locations like Cancun and Southern California to thriving destinations like Las Vegas, we are focused on expanding our portfolio to the destinations where we know our guests are craving to travel as soon as they are able.”

As Hughes references in his quote, Hilton recently released survey data that shows 95% of Americas are missing travel right now with 9 out of 10 respondents saying that travel memories are the fondest they have. In fact, 94% of respondents in the survey plan to travel once restrictions are lifted, with two-thirds making travel a priority and planning to take a bucket list trip. So as you continue to make plans for 2021, this collection of hotels from the Hilton brand is filled with properties that are certainly worthy of your consideration. We look forward to bringing you even more details in the coming months. Safe travels!
