Whether you're traveling for work or enjoying a much-needed getaway with your family, a memorable hotel stay can make or break a travel experience. Each year travelers are offered more options as new hotels open their doors.

  • Margaritaville Times Square

    Margaritaville Times Square
    New York City

    The Caribbean should be far from Midtown Manhattan, but the best of both worlds come together at the new Margaritaville Hotel in Times Square. The 234 guest rooms are decorated in coastal colors and the Landshark Bar and Grill opens to the only outdoor pool in Times Square. The signature Margaritaville restaurant dominates the second and third floors with a 32-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty and New York’s most extensive tiki bar. Additionally, The Five o’Clock Somewhere Bar on the 32nd floor offers a great outdoor view of the Manhattan skyline. You can almost see the Caribbean from there.

  • Resorts World Las Vegas

    Resorts World Las Vegas
    Las Vegas, NV

    The first new resort hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in a decade, Resorts World is a 3,500 guestroom marriage of three Hilton hotels. Topping out at 59 stories, it's also the most expensive, with a $4.3 billion price tag. Close to the Las Vegas Convention Center, its 5.5-acre pool complex on the fifth floor is the largest on the Strip. Inside, the Asian theme and color scheme dominates more than 40 food outlets (GrubHub provides room service), a state-of-the-art theatre, and of course, a casino.

  • Gordon Hotel

    Gordon Hotel
    Eugene, OR

    10Best Contributor Gerrish Lopez remarks, “Eugene has its first modern boutique hotel, one that wouldn’t be out of place in L.A. or Brooklyn.” Creativity is the theme at The Gordon in Eugene. Just steps away from the 5th Street Public Market, Hult Center for Performing Arts, the Sessions Music Hall, and the university district, this boutique hotel with 82 rooms caters to its artistic guests. Over 200 works of art line the walls, and the digital Great Wall in the lobby spans two floors.

  • Daxton Hotel

    Daxton Hotel
    Birmingham, Michigan

    This chic hotel in a Detroit suburb opened in 2021 and sets a new standard for guest accommodations. With a 400-piece artwork collection on display and a Peleton-equipped fitness center, Daxton’s staff intend to spoil their guests. The 151 rooms range from 340 square feet to the 1,410 square foot Colby Suite with a private bar and outdoor terrace. Modern meeting accommodations range from a private dining room for 16 to theater-style seating up to 425 - great for small events to memorable weddings. Madam, the hotel’s restaurant serves from breakfast to late-night (try the Wagyu strip loin with bone marrow and sweet scotch bonnets for dinner), and the square bar is sheltered under a geodesic dome.

  • Four Seasons New Orleans

    Four Seasons New Orleans
    New Orleans, LA

    With commanding views of the Mississippi River and the warehouse district, the 33-story Four Seasons New Orleans boasts 341 guest rooms and 92 condominiums. This landmark property underwent a $450 million post-hurricane conversion to take its place as the premier hotel in the Big Easy’s Central Business District. Enjoy classic New Orleans dishes at the Miss River or Chemin a la Mer restaurants, or beverages in the lobby’s Chandelier Bar, or lounge by the crescent-shaped rooftop pool on the fifth floor.

  • The Goodtime Hotel

    When you're in South Beach, you're there to have a good time, and that's what this new hotel is all about.

With room views of the Atlantic and Biscayne Bay, Goodtime also has a private beach, two pools, and two bars to soak up the Miami Beach sunshine.

  • Hyatt Centric Beale Street

    Hyatt Centric Beale Street
    Memphis, TN

    If you’re in Memphis to soak up some Beale Street vibes, it makes sense to stay at the only hotel on Beale Street. The Centric, with 227 guestrooms, puts you within easy walking distance of the neighborhood’s music, landmarks, and barbecue. Hyatt repurposed a manufacturing facility dating back to 1879 into indoor and outdoor event space with original brick walls and a river view. The hotel restaurant serves Latin-inspired dishes inside or on the patio with views of the Mississippi River; cocktails are available in the lounge bar or the rooftop Beck and Call.
