Four brand-new hotels are among the new additions
The Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) collection has increased its numbers, adding six new member hotels, including four new openings.
Since its inception in 1928, LHW has grown from 38 founding member hotels to more than 400 hotels in more than 80 countries, making it the largest collection of independent luxury hotels.
LHW’s vice president of membership, Deniz Omurgonulsen said: “As 2023 travel planning begins in earnest, we’re delighted to introduce exciting new additions to our world-wide collection. The Winter Collection includes our first LHW hotels in new destinations Samarkand, Uzbekistan and Montevideo, Uruguay, alongside new additions in the classic Italian cities of Rome and Milan, the Austrian mountains and Swiss lakes.
