Pandemic Travel Hiatus = 5 New Properties

While the tourism industry has been on a bit of a hiatus over the last 18 months, hotel companies did not pause the developments of new properties. Now that travel is picking back up and there’s on an uptick movement for 2022, we have new properties opening up around the globe that are ready to welcome your clients.

Debuting in London, on 15,000 sq. ft., the Beaverbrook Town House occupies two revamped Georgian townhouses and features 14 suites, a Japanese restaurant and bar, a garden and an events room.

Instead of a formal reception area, the property offers a cozy library filled with London-centric books for borrow; and instead of a formal staff, guests are greeted by personal assistants who can offer plenty of local recommendations for exploring. In the guestrooms, the minibars are stocked with guest’s preferred treats, whiskey decanters, and tea stations. The bedrooms also feature four-poster and half-tester beds, antique bureaus and ensuite bathrooms.

Onsite, guests can dine on contemporary Japanese cuisine at Fuji Grill and Omakase Sushi Bar. For those ready to explore the surrounding city, the property offers private-shopping experiences, plus in-room massages and beauty treatments to unwind.

Located along the Paseo de Reforma, The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City is now open and offers views of Chapultepec Park. The property is 58 stories high and features 153 guestrooms and suites. A double glass facade offers open-air terraces with city views, while the interiors were designed to serve as a looking glass into Mexico City with the use of metals, mirrors and glass that serve to reflect the exterior into the interior.

The hotel features a wide range of curated amenities designed for cultural discovery and epicurean adventures including The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with an exclusive Club Concierge, a heated indoor pool, a large fitness center and a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa with six treatment rooms. The Ritz-Carlton Spa sources local ingredients and botanicals, which are then paired with the healing and spiritual traditions of Mexico City’s Aztec culture. In addition to the treatments, the spa features steam rooms, saunas, and a timeless capsule room. Onsite, guests can dine at Samos, a Mediterranean inspired restaurant on the 38th floor.
