Could the next 12 months usher in a renaissance in the hotel industry?

It just might, as more brands and portfolios announce new property openings. The Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) collection announced on Tuesday eight new members and 13 new hotel openings throughout 2021.

LHW is a small but compelling portfolio of 400 luxury hotels and resorts in more than 80 countries. While each property is unique and offers a different set of experiences, each one was selected because it meets extremely high standards in terms of its hard product and service.

The organization says its “independent hotels [are] united not by what makes them the same, but the remarkable details that make them different.”

Let’s look more closely at the new properties joining The Leading Hotels of the World.

Should you join the Leaders Club loyalty program?

If you plan to visit several LHW hotels in one year, it could make sense to join the Leaders Club loyalty program. It costs $175 per year and includes perks such as one prearrival, one-category upgrade annually; continental breakfast for two daily; free in-room Wi-Fi; points-earning opportunities (1 point per dollar spent); access to special rates and experiences; and other benefits during each stay.

Leaders Club members can also access a special “first look” package at the eight properties that are part of the “Spring Collection.” The package includes round-trip airport or train station transfers, a guaranteed upgrade at check-in and flexible check-in and checkout policies.
