The Shangri-La Bosphorus’ opening this past May was highly anticipated as it features the largest accommodations in Istanbul. It also has more than 1,000 pieces of original art throughout the property, a three level atrium, and water views. Guests can also find meeting, spa, and health facilities on this new property.
The recently opened Langham Chicago provides great views of the skyline, Chicago River, and Lake Michigan with its floor-to-ceiling windows. This hotel is located in the iconic Mies van der Rohe building, which was declared a Chicago landmark.
The Cicada Lodge in Australia has 18 rooms that display work from local artists. This hotel is definitely a must for visitors looking for a new adventure. Guests can swim under neighboring waterfalls or take a ride in a helicopter for views of prehistoric rock sites. This property not only puts this location on travelers’ radar, but also preserves the culture of the indigenous Jawoyn people of this region of Australia.
