Business Traveller tries to report on as many of the new hotel openings worldwide as we can, but it’s not always possible to dedicate a whole news story to each and every one.

So here we round-up some of the new properties which have been unveiled this month. We’ll aim to keep this updated throughout the month, and then start a new feature for February, and so on.
