As the tourism industry continues to rebound from the pandemic, hoteliers across the country are—cautiously, optimistically—doubling down by introducing new properties to help inspire travelers to hit the “book” button. In California wine country, for example, where tourism took a 62% dip last year, Four Seasons is finally set to open its much-anticipated vineyard-set resort. “This is an exciting moment, (as) we open up reservations and begin planning guest visits in tandem with the world’s return to travel,” says general manager Mehdi Eftekari.
Meanwhile, in New York City, the city’s tourism agency, NYC & Company, is predicting that the city will host around 38.2 million visitors in 2021, after only seeing some 22.9 million in 2020. And because all those people will need somewhere to stay, the city is set to welcome a slate of new properties through the end of this year. As James Paspaley, executive director of the Paspaley Group of Companies, owners of the new Wall Street Hotel, sums up: “Having been restricted for so long, in our view now is the perfect time to offer something new and refreshing in a world that’s been dull and gray of late.”
Here, then, are 10 domestic hotels opening this fall and winter that will help bring some color back into traveling. From chic urban hideaways and southern charmers to a ski-in, ski-out getaway with its own fly-fishing rivers and 18-hole golf course, these new arrivals should help inspire your next passport-free adventure.
