0 Comments

Marriott expects to open more than 30 luxury hotels in 2022.

The company currently has more than 460 luxury hotels and resorts in 68 countries and territories in its network, with nearly 190 properties in the development pipeline.

A global luxury trends study conducted in collaboration with creative agency Team One revealed that today’s affluent travelers are shifting from a ‘box checking’ mindset to a ‘traveling well’ mindset, taking a more thoughtful, intentional approach to trip planning.

“Our guests are seeking deeper, more immersive experiences that allow them to indulge in global exploration while sparking personal regeneration," said Chris Gabaldon, Senior Vice President, Luxury Brands, Marriott International. “As people reexamine and reprioritize what matters to them most, a shift that has accelerated over the past two years, we’re seeing a real embracing of deeper travel. Our guests are focusing more on where they travel and why they make the journey, seeking to foster a more meaningful connection to the destination as well as the people they meet.”

In 2021 The Ritz-Carlton brand was introduced in some of the world’s most coveted locales, including Maldives, Turks & Caicos and Mexico City.

In 2022, the brand expects to expand in Arizona with The Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley, The Palmeraie, as well as in New York City, debuting in the vibrant NoMad neighborhood.
