2020 restart: a map of where hotels are reopening
The agency network Traveller Made is mapping the status of its hotel partners. Its goal: An interactive resource for the reopening of 950 luxury hotels and lodges.
Traveller Made, a network of 440 travel agencies in 70 countries, has produced “2020 Restart,” a map showing the reopening status of its preferred hotel partners. About 500 of its 950 preferred properties have provided information about their current status, including whether they are partially or fully open, and if not fully open, their timetable for reopening, among other details.
The organization’s president, Quentin Desurmont, said that the map will be updated as new information comes in, and he expects most of the properties in the Traveller Made Hotel Partner collection will be added to the map in the coming weeks.
Although the map was created with Traveller Made members in mind, the hotels are ones which can be booked by any advisor, and Desurmont offered it for posting on TravelWeekly.com so “as many travel designers as possible” can be aware of the properties’ status.
The Traveller Made Hotel Partner collection comprises 70% independent luxury hotels and lodges and 30% group properties, including the brands Belmond, Raffles, Fairmont, Peninsula, Aman, Hyatt, Kerzner, One & Only, Taj, Banyan Tree, Rocco Forte, Oberoi, Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Kempinski, Shangri-La, ,Rosewood, Six Senses, Langham, Como, Anantara, Sofitel Legend, Oetker, Alila, Viceroy, La Reserve, Cheval Blanc and Maybourne. In some cases, only a portion of the brand’s properties have reported their status at this point.
