A look inside the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database shows that Westin Hotels & Resorts will grow substantially in the coming years, with a distinct focus on the APAC region.

Marriott International’s Westin Hotels & Resorts brand will increase its global footprint by 49 hotels and 14,324 rooms in the next few years, our research shows. We take a closer look at this busy pipeline.

Westin’s opening plans by year

In 2021, Westin will open 18 properties with 5,381 rooms. What’s more, 2022 looks broadly similar – 14 launches and 3,573 new keys are being planned for next year.

For 2023, only three projects with 908 rooms are currently in the works, although we expect more will be announced nearer the time. As for 2024 and beyond, this is looking much healthier, with 14 new hotels and 4,462 keys already on the books.

Eyeing development opportunities in APAC

APAC is getting the most attention from Westin on a region-by-region basis, with 29 projects and 7,593 rooms being progressed here at present. 18 of these schemes will open in China, incidentally, expanding its footprint in the People’s Republic by 4,617 keys – and with five new properties on the way, Australia is the region’s second fastest growing market.

In North America, 12 new hotels with 3,812 rooms are on the cards as we speak, of which ten involve sites in the US.

Elsewhere, Westin will grow its presence in Europe by four properties and 1,448 keys, while two new hotels will launch in the Middle East. Only one property is currently being proposed for South America.

New Westin hotels worth knowing about

Disneyland Resort in California is expected to introduce another hotel to its collection by March 2021 – the 700-room Westin Anaheim Resort Disneyland. It’ll be the first newbuild property added in 20 years and boast a variety of amenities, including two pools, a fitness centre, concierge service and a kid’s play area. One of the hotel’s most eye-catching features is that guests will be able to dine under the famous fireworks at its rooftop restaurant.

Over in China, Westin Taiyuan will open its doors in early 2022. This 350-room hotel will cater for the growing number of business and leisure guests heading to the rapidly developing Shanxi province. Its noteworthy facilities will include a Chinese restaurant, a banquet hall, multifunctional conference spaces, a fitness centre and a pool.

Also in China, Westin Haikou will be set right on the water in the historic port city. Located within the Haikou Waitan Centre – close to major corporate offices, boutique shops, restaurants, bars, cultural sights and natural attractions – the 297-key property will offer several dining venues, a spa, a pool, a fitness centre and splendid views. Its opening date has been set for Q3 2021.
