Welcome to the Ultimate Hotel Guide
Although hospitality companies took a beating on rate during this time of economic uncertainty, guests wouldn’t suspect that anything is amiss. Perhaps it’s the sharpened sense of competition, but hoteliers seem to want to know more than ever about their guests and how to please them.
We defi nitely saw a slowdown after all those new hotels appeared in 2009, but there were still a few notable openings in 2010, among them The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Springs (Arizona) and the long-anticipated opening of the first Marriott-Ian Schrager collaboration, Edition, in Waikiki.
But the (relative) paucity of hotel openings gave us a moment to reflect on some of North America’s grande dames to see how some of our favorite luxury hotels of a certain age have held their own in the competitive world of hospitality. And that story got us thinking about another: how hotels have evolved and, in particular, how hotel design has progressed through the years.
We’ve noticed that lately the line seems to be blurring between hotels and tour operators. We were intrigued to see Fairmont’s apprentice and so-called “bucket list” programs offering everything from Formula 1 packages in Monte Carlo to French language lessons in Quebec to Rocky Mountain hiking.
Plus, we decided to take a look at two of our favorite sun-and-sand destinations, checking out all the recent renovations in Hawaii and taking a look at how Mexico, despite initial skepticism, became the all-inclusive capital of the world.
