Hotel rooms

November 2021 preview: more than 30,000 new hotel rooms to be launched [Infographic]

November is already upon us, so let’s dive into the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database to see which markets are most active at the end of the year.

In November 2021, 176 four- and five-star hotels will open around the world, our dedicated researchers have discovered. We take a look at the regions that will see the most growth and highlight some eye-catching properties that are close to completion.

Most dynamic regions in November 2021

North America tops the list region by region, with 61 hotels and 11,939 rooms nearly ready for action. 48 of these projects will open in the United States alone, making it comfortably the most active domestic growth market.

Europe is in second place, with 52 imminent openings that will involve 8,260 keys. Germany and the UK lead here with 11 and eight launches respectively, although the latter wins in terms of the number of additional rooms with 1,449 keys, compared to 1,214 in the region’s largest economy.

APAC will also see significant growth this month – 34 hotels and 6,811 rooms are due for completion in the coming days. Unsurprisingly, China is the key national market here, with 11 additional hotels contributing 2,551 rooms to its growing hotel scene.

In the Middle East, 18 projects are expected to start in November, including seven in the United Arab Emirates. Africa and Latin America end the list, with nine and two openings respectively.

Of the 176 new hotels, 117 will belong to the four-star category, while the remaining 59 will belong to the five-star segment.

The most anticipated hotel openings this month

Undoubtedly one of the most exciting openings of November, the new Steigenberger Doha will be the talk of the town once it launches. With 220 rooms, junior suites, suites and a presidential suite, it will also offer a large conference center with a 400 m² ballroom, a fitness center and a health spa. In addition, there will be two international restaurants – one specializing in Lebanese cuisine and the other featuring a 200 m² terrace – and a shisha bar.

In Ireland, the Samuel Dublin will soon begin welcoming guests just around the corner from the Convention Center Dublin, the International Financial Services Center and 3Arena. Although part of the Dalata portfolio, its branding will be bespoke and in line with the surrounding development of Spencer Place. This four-star, 200-key hotel will occupy the former London and North Western Hotel, which dates back to the 1800s.
