Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel, set to open this spring, will become this city’s first multi-sensory, interactive "living" hotel.

While European construction projects are being postponed or curtailed, China’s development continues at a rapid pace. Following the opening of the world’s biggest building in Chengdu and the announcement that a ‘groundscraping’ five-star hotel is being built, downwards, into the sheer rock face of an abandoned quarry near Shanghai, the latest project to attract attention is the ‘horseshoe hotel’ opening fully in Huzhou in October.
