COND NAST TRAVELER UNVEILS ITS 14th ANNUAL HOT LIST
May “Hot List” issue is the magazine’s annual guide to the hottest new hotels, spas, and clubs around the globe
(New York, NY) Cond Nast Traveler’s 14th annual May “Hot List” issue is the ultimate insider’s guide to the newest and hottest hotels, spas, and nightclubs opened all over the world in the past year. The editors scoured the globe to check out hundreds of new properties, rigorously evaluating each one on a standard set of criteria. The result is a definitive guide to the world’s most exciting new establishments destined to become instant classics.
The 2010 Hot List features 134 new hotels and resorts, 30 of the hottest bars and clubs, and 45 of the world’s most relaxing spas, all of which transcend industry standards in design, service, and amenities. Hot and trendy doesn’t have to mean pricey – 42 of this year’s hotels and resorts offer rooms for less than $250 a night.
The hotel findings range in size from a three-suite gem in Lisbon to an eco-forward 4,004-room showstopper on the Vegas Strip, and in price from a $130 per night at a boldly designed Mexico City tower to $3,600 for a slice of the good life at the private retreat of Malcolm Forbes on a South Pacific isle.
