At the start of 2023, we are happy to share
some exciting hotels opening this year.
Bulgari Hotel Rome
The new Roman hotel will be the Italian group’s flagship location, strategically located in the central Piazza Augusto Imperatore, in the very heart of the Campo Marzio neighborhood. Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel took on both the architectural project and the hotel’s interior design, seamlessly blending elements of the original 1930s modernist building with classic Roman architecture and materials – such as travertine marble and red brick. A rotating collection of both modern and antique art will draw on the city’s legacy as one of the world’s most renowned cities and its position as an enduring cradle of arts and culture. The hotel will count over 100 rooms, most of them suites, and the prestigious Il Ristorante curated by Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito and The Bulgari Bar.
Bulgari Hotel Tokyo
Bulgari Hotel Tokyo will occupy the top seven floors of a 240m tall ultra-skyscraper in the Yaesu neighborhood – within walking distance of some of the city’s best attractions, including Imperial Palace and the vibrant shopping areas of both Nihombashi and Ginza. The hotel will offer 98 guest rooms in various configurations, including multiple luxury suites and an extraordinary Bvlgari Suite with views over the city from the 45th floor. Bulgari Hotels’ iconic features, such as Il Bar, Il Ristorante, the fireplace Lounge, and a 1,500sqm Bulgari Spa, complete with a 25m indoor pool, will add a further luxurious touch to the guest experience.

Virgin Hotels New York City
NoMad, New York

Virgin Hotels New York City will sit at the heart of the booming NoMad neighborhood and deliver a vibrant yet sophisticated hospitality experience in one of the world’s most exciting cities. To create a contemporary space that seamlessly melds the classic Virgin aesthetic with the dynamism of the Big Apple, Virgin Hotels tapped the Brooklyn-based design team at MARKZEFF and community-minded architecture firm Stantec to spearhead the design of the New York City property. Guests will find clever layouts for work and play and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the cityscape at all 460 Chambers (guest rooms) and Suites, including Sir Richard’s Flat, the property’s impressive 2,800-square foot suite spanning across the hotel’s 35th and 36th floors. The property will also be home to multiple culinary destinations, including Everdene, a sprawling 4,000-square foot indoor/outdoor venue that captures the city’s energy through shareable dishes and drinks and rotating entertainment, and The Pool Club, the seasonal deck and bar where overnight guests have exclusive access to lounge against the backdrop of the Empire State Building.
