Travel + Leisure's 2011 "It List" of the World's Best New Hotels


W Retreat Koh SamuiFor the last six years, Travel + Leisure has published an annual "It List" of the world's hottest new hotels. Last year the magazine's editors singled out just 45 noteworthy newcomers, and this year, the number's climbed up to 50- in all corners of the globe. The USA Today Hotel Check-in blog got a sneak peek at the list today, which they organized by type of hotel.
