June 2021 overview: More than 400 hotels to open this month [Infographic]
Our researchers have combed the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database and found 413 hotel launches earmarked for June 2021, mostly in Europe or North America.
In June, 413 hotels with 79,111 rooms are due to open their doors across the globe, according to our figures. We take a closer look at where these upcoming launches will occur and consider which are particularly worth watching out for.
June 2021 hotel openings by region
Europe and North America are neck and neck for top spot on a regional basis, with 142 and 141 new hotels lined up respectively. However, North America leads in terms of room count with 27,936 keys slated to go live, compared to 21,622 for Europe. This shows that, on average, the new hotels in North America will be larger than those in Europe.
APAC is also looking forward to a busy month, with 92 projects and 21,151 rooms due for completion. In the Middle East, 17 hotel openings are pencilled in, adding 4,550 keys to the area’s offering, comfortably ahead of both Africa (13 properties, 2,769 rooms) and Latin America (eight hotels, 1,083 keys).
Top national and urban hotel markets in June 2021
The US tops our national rankings, courtesy of the fact that it has 124 new hotels and 24,398 rooms almost ready to go – in other words, the lion’s share of North America’s openings are taking place in the Land of the Free. This month’s fastest growing urban hotel market is also in the US, as 13 hotels with 3,586 rooms are due to launch in New York.
Meanwhile, China’s upcoming openings make up almost half of all APAC’s launches – 42 projects with 9,870 rooms are nearing completion in the People’s Republic.
The remaining countries on the list are all from Europe, reflecting the continent’s high levels of activity on the regional leaderboard. In the UK, 31 hotels will bring 3,484 new rooms – and with seven new properties and 816 additional rooms, London takes second place among June’s top urban hotel markets.
Germany’s next in line with 19 new hotels and 2,219 rooms, followed by France with 16 openings and 3,158 keys.
This month’s fastest growing hotel brands
In terms of brand activity, Hampton by Hilton comes out ahead with 11 new hotels and 1,600 keys nearly ready. Not far behind, AC Hotels by Marriott is growing its global footprint by eight properties and 1,364 keys, while Radisson Red will complete seven projects and expand its offering by 1,385 rooms.
Of the 413 properties opening this month, 274 will be in the four-star segment while 139 are in the five-star category.
