This year brings an exciting collection of new hotel and resort openings around the globe. From historic landmarks turned into boutique resorts to iconic city hotels and beachfront properties, here are just a few of the most talked-about new hotels in 2023. You may just want to book a visit for yourself!


Sun seekers will soon flock to the new Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley in Scottsdale, Arizona. Set on 20 lush acres, the hotel is the centerpiece of the $2-billion, 122-acre luxury master-planned development known as the Palmeraie, a top shopping and entertainment destination.

Guests at the 215-room resort, which includes oversized suites and detached casitas, will have beautiful views of Camelback Mountain and Arizona’s expansive sunsets. A 400-foot pool will be a popular spot to enjoy the region’s famed, pleasant weather in the fall, winter, and spring. 

Opening in fall 2023, the resort is only minutes from Old Town Scottsdale and the Scottsdale Wine Trail, a series of six tasting rooms all pouring Arizona wines.

The A-Frame Club in Winter Park, Colorado, is offering 31 newly constructed A-Frame cabins— which are well integrated into Winter Park's natural environment—just in time for the 2023 ski season. 

Winter Park is a favorite ski destination with Coloradans. It’s laid-back vibe, authentic mountain town atmosphere, and top-notch ski resort draw visitors year-round.

Sydney is a bucket-list destination, and the new W Sydney is just one more reason to visit this top Australian city. Part of Sydney’s attraction is its location along the water, and the W Sydney is nestled on the city’s stunning waterfront, overlooking Darling Harbour.

Conceived and created by award-winning interior specialists Bowler James Brindley, the hotel has a bold, sophisticated design. Flowing angles reach to the sky and beautifully showcase the hotel's setting. Staying true to W Sydney’s extraordinary architecture, no two rooms are alike. The rooms have sleek, modern décor and the interior palette was inspired by the hotel’s marine environment. 

Slated to open in 2023, the W Sydney features 585 luxury rooms and suites, an AWAY® Spa, rooftop bar, infinity pool, and the brand’s iconic pool deck with stunning views of the water.

Opening in February 2023, the Inn at Mattei’s Tavern in Los Olivos, California, has 67 luxury guest rooms and cottages that blend the simplicity of modern farmhouse design with the style of nearby ranch life.

The hotel, located on a historic piece of land with many aged palm trees, is close to nearby vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley. 

Originally opened in 1886 during the California Gold Rush, the Inn at Mattei’s Tavern was a popular stagecoach stop. It was the center of social life through the 1930s, and the property has remained a favorite local landmark ever since.

Today, the Inn at Mattei’s Tavern features an open-air destination restaurant, a signature spa, an outdoor pool with poolside bar, cabanas, firepits, and more.


Located in the former home of one of Greenville, South Carolina’s prominent families, Hotel Hartness showcases its historic architecture along with 69 new suites and four spa suites. 

The crown jewel is Spa H, a luxury spa located on the edge of the hotel’s nature preserve. Designed for tranquility and relaxation, the spa offers treatments to rejuvenate the body and mind. Signature treatments include the Honey Magnolia Parfait or Bourbon Bubble body polish. Hotel Hartness will open in winter 2023.
