Proving you can mix business with pleasure, we present our annual shortlist of the best new openings around the world. A smart new generation of business hotels has sussed that hitting the road in the name of work can, in the right hands, be a positive experience. What you need is a mix of great design, good service, delicious food and a little je ne sais quoi. Here we bring you the rare gems that have it all sorted. To pick the ten winners, we have tapped a coterie of well-travelled creatives for our judges (see our October issue). Check back in November to see their selection.
