Travel + Leisure unveils 2011 list of world's 50 best new hotels

The sumptuously furnished lobby of the Leela Palace New Delhi is a sophisticated public space that features a $5 million art collection.

Today, Travel + Leisure unveils its sixth annual list of "IT" hotels around the globe to highlight what the magazine's editors consider the world's best new hotels - and Hotel Check-In has a sneak peek for you.

The hotels that landed on this year's list range from a sexy, pricey skyscraper in New York - the Trump SoHo - to hotelier Liz Lambert's stylish yet more affordable Hotel Havana on San Antonio's Riverwalk.

But these 50 special hotels aren't just in the USA, although the US has the most hotels on the list for a single country (8 hotels).

The others, based on geography, are in: Europe (12 hotels); Asia (12); Africa and the Middle East (8); Mexico and Latin America (6); Caribbean (2), and Australia and New Zealand (2).

The list contains mostly independent hotels, but it's sprinkled with a few recognizable names such as Starwood (4 hotels), Ritz-Carlton (2), Waldorf Astoria (1) and Four Seasons (1) and Marriott (1).
