Marriott International plans to open more than 30 new hotels across its eight luxury brands next year, expanding its footprint in the segment with more than 200 properties in the development pipeline.

The Ritz-Carlton will see six openings this year, including its return to Australia with the debut of The Ritz-Carlton, Perth, a 205-room waterfront hotel. Other openings include The Ritz-Carlton Rabat, Dar es Salam in Morocco; The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City; and The Ritz-Carlton, Xi'an.

The iconic brand also expects to see the completion of a major renovation of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park and to continue to work towards the inaugural voyage of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection in February 2020.

In the coming year, St. Regis will continue to broaden its portfolio of more than 40 hotels in 20 countries. A major highlight will be the debut of the St. Regis Hong Kong, which boasts interiors created by acclaimed designer, André Fu. The brand is also set to expand its footprint in Europe with The St. Regis Venice, a combination of five 18th- and 19th-century palazzi situated on the Grand Canal. Promising views of the Nile and Old Cairo, The St. Regis Cairo will join the portfolio this summer.

W Hotels has eight hotels projected to open, ranging from Aspen and Ibiza to Muscat and Melbourne. The luxury lifestyle brand will see multimillion-dollar renovations planned or underway at more than half of its properties in North America, including W Washington D.C. and W San Francisco.

Created through a collaboration between boutique hotel creator and innovator, Ian Schrager, and Marriott, EDITION has already doubled its footprint, growing from four properties to eight. Next up, it will debut in West Hollywood with a scheduled opening in the second quarter of 2019, joining the recently opened EDITION Times Square.

Among the nine new Luxury Collection properties that will welcome guests next year are: Okinawa, Cesme, Buckinghamshire, and Budapest. For JW Marriott, major openings include the Maldives, Shanghai, and Savannah.
