A new year always brings new hope and excitement! And while most travel still isn’t possible right now, we are hoping the world will open up at some point in 2021. And when it does, we are ready to explore new places and stay in stunning new properties. Preferred Hotels and Resorts is the world’s largest independent hotel brand and one of our absolute favorites. Their collection consists of over 750 hotels across 85 countries, and there are several new ones opening up in 2021!
We wrote all about our recent stays at two of their properties in the United States: Montage Laguna Beach and Eau Palm Beach Resort. Because of their diverse portfolio, I highly recommend joining their rewards program which is absolutely free to join, and they do NOT bombard you with unnecessary emails. I have personally been an I Prefer Rewards member for years now and I love all the perks such as welcome drinks, early check-in and late check-out, room upgrades, free internet, and so much more. Being able to earn points that are redeemable for free hotel stays is also a huge plus for someone who travels as much as I do.
But without further ado, check out our top 10 new Preferred Hotels and Resorts properties opening in 2021 that we are MOST excited about….
