As part of a brand expansion, Marriott will be debuting 30 new luxury hotels to various brand portfolios over the next few years — a welcome addition for folks who prefer to stay in higher-end properties in major cities.

Exciting New Openings Ahead

Marriott has traditionally excelled at the higher-end brand offerings, especially with its Ritz-Carlton and St. Regis hotels. These brands have been a staple in the international luxury travel market for years, and over the next year we’re going to see some exciting additions to these brands and others as part of Marriott’s expansion into the luxury sector.

Here are the new hotels we can expect over the next year or so (keep in mind, many hotels have opened this year as well):

The Ritz-Carlton

Here are the new hotels, slated for opening in 2022 and beyond:

These hotels expect major refurbishments:

St. Regis

Here’s what we can expect for new hotels in 2022:

  • The St. Regis Marsa Arabia Island, The Pearl
  • The St. Regis Chicago
  • The St. Regis Belgrade
  • The St. Regis Kanai Resort

The St. Regis San Francisco is undergoing a major renovation and is expected to open soon as well.

On tap for 2022 includes:

The Luxury Collection

The Luxury Collection hotels are independent-feeling hotels that are almost like private boutique properties. In 2022 we’ll see openings in the Dominican Republic, Georgia (Tbilisi), India, Mexico, and Spain.

JW Marriott

JW Marriott hotels are Marriott’s flagship higher-end hotel. In 2022, these JW Marriott hotels, as well as several others, are expected to open:

  • JW Marriott Burj Rafal Riyadh
  • JW Marriott Cairo Mena House
  • JW Marriott Guadalajara
  • JW Marriott Jeju
  • JW Marriott Madrid

Hot Tip: Learn about the best ways to earn lots of Marriott Bonvoy points and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points for hotel stays for maximum value.

Final Thoughts

It’s always great to have additional choices of premium hotels when you travel — these can make for great points redemptions, and most of these new hotels are opening in major cities, some without a lot of luxury options already.

Including the 2021 openings, Marriott is opening up over 30 major refurbished or new hotels in the luxury category, so it will be exciting to try some of these properties out!
