Travel + Leisure today revealed its 2017 It List, featuring the best new and radically redone hotels and resorts of the past year.
The Dewberry in Charleston, South Carolina; Asilia The Highlands in Tanzania (pictured at top); Santani in Sri Lanka; and Pulitzer Amsterdam in Amsterdam are among the 44 hotels around the world named to the coveted list.
Travel + Leisure looks at all the major hotel openings around the globe and uses its wide network of editors and contributors to determine the highly selective It List. Every property on the Travel + Leisure It List contains a unique quality, whether it's redefining a neighborhood, displaying innovative design or shaking up the culinary scene.
Travel + Leisure Editor Nathan Lump said: "At Travel + Leisure we know that hotels are key to unlocking great destinations, and they increasingly provide or facilitate incredible experiences themselves. This year's It List properties are those that we believe capture the essence of what it means to be a great hotel today, and we know they will provide travelers with fresh inspiration to hit the road."
The 12th annual Travel + Leisure It List is available now at www.tandl.me/itlist and will be featured in the March issue of Travel + Leisure, on newsstands February 14.
