If your listening out there, please add on a site in your web page that keeps us up to date on what's going on in your hotels. Which ones have closed, which ones are going to open, and which ones are in the middle of renovation. Had been thinging of going to the one on Capri, now it's gone. Would love to go to a Marriot in Florence, there is none, will consider moving some of my business trips to Hilton.
Regards new hotel openings, there are two places to check:
Insiders Lobby. If you scroll down, you'll see the section on new hotels. It might make sense to make this more prominent.
New Hotels. This is a comprehensive listing by country and by US state. The number of guest rooms, event spaces and square footage of the largest space is shown.
Interestingly, the Marriott Vacation Club at Lake Shore Reserve Orlando due to open in June 2010 will be the largest property opening in Florida with 541 villas compared to the JW Marquis Miami with 313 guest rooms. Both of these are dwarfed by the JW Marriott at LA LIVE with 878 guest rooms and the JW Chicago with 619 guest rooms.
