For two decades, Travel + Leisure has been asking its readers to vote for the world’s top hotels, taking into account value, service, food and – of course – design. The result of their votes is the magazine’s annual list of The World’s Top 50 Hotels. Click here to see the full list.
We are thrilled that two SB Architects-designed hotels have been included on the list: Calistoga Ranch, An Auberge Resort at #46, and the newly-renovated Farmhouse Inn at #8. Both represent the very best the California wine country has to offer.
This comes as no surprise to us. Amidst a robust development market, our portfolio of U.S. hospitality design projects continues to grow . According to a recent State of the Industry Report in Hospitality Design, 91.5% of its readers feel the hospitality design industry is on the industry. With U.S. hotel openings forecasted to grow from 726 in 2015 to 2,122 in 2017 (according to Lodging Econometrics), it looks like their sentiments are well-founded, and that the upswing will continue for some time to come.
