Hilton’s Luxury Hot List: Global properties and brand signatures to debut in 2024 and beyond

Debuting in Q1 2024, Waldorf Astoria Seychelles Platte Island will set a new benchmark for luxury in the Indian Ocean, with the resort just 20 minutes by plane south of Mahé, in a pristine atoll fringed by palm forests, migratory seabirds and turtles, and protected by its own lagoon and coral reef. The resort will be home to a collection of seafront villas, all equipped with their own private pool and personal concierge.

A beacon of timeless glamour and luxury for more than a century, Waldorf Astoria New York has always been the place to be in New York City and is expected to reopen in late 2024 following an extensive restoration spearheaded by renowned interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. Featuring 375 hotel rooms and 375 private residences, Waldorf Astoria New York will retain the scale and beauty of the original Art Deco architecture alongside fresh contemporary furnishings, opulent finishes and carefully preserved unique hotel artifacts including the Spirit of Achievement and Cole Porter’s piano. The hotel will feature some of Manhattan’s largest rooms and suites, a hotel spa spanning over 30,000-square-feet, fitness center, a signature restaurant, and nearly 35,500-square-feet of state-of-the-art event spaces incorporating the latest technology, including renowned heritage spaces such as the Grand Ballroom, Jade Room, and Astor Salon.

Rolling out in 2024 in partnership with Proof & Company’s award-winning bar and beverage consultancy arm, Proof Creative, guests will enjoy a bespoke cocktail ritual paying homage to Waldorf Astoria’s iconic Peacock Alley. The ritual will be performed tableside where a team member host will present guests with a modern tantalus containing handcrafted custom cocktails. Telling a story with each sip, these cocktails serve as a passport to Waldorf Astoria’s pioneering history, forward-thinking innovation, and each property’s authentic sense of place.

Travelers will also have more reason to return to their favorite hotel and resort destinations in the new year with exciting property transformations. First up, Las Vegas, where Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas will roll out a floor-to-ceiling redesign of all guest rooms and suites; upgrades to meeting and event spaces; and a new arrival experience with the complete redesign and relocation of the 23rd-floor lobby and front desk to the ground floor.
