The THP research team has been busy this month inputting over 160 new entries in the database, and here we profile three of the latest hotels to keep a watching brief on.

These major new projects span Asia, Africa and North America and represent segments from serviced suites to convention centre sites.

Omni Raleigh Hotel

Omni Hotels & Resorts, in partnership with Preston Hollow Community Capital and Provident Resources Group, is developing a convention hotel in the core of downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

The dynamic addition to the Raleigh skyline will be built on an over one-acre plot across from the Raleigh Convention Center and Martin Marietta Center for the Performing Arts. Expected to open in 2027, Omni Raleigh Hotel will be a notable  addition to the chain’s growing portfolio of over 50 luxury hotels.

This will be the third Omni property in the state of North Carolina and the first for the capital city.
