New hotel openings 2020

I just read an article (in Portuguese - haven't found anything in other languages yet) about Accor announcing Jo & Joe in Rio (Brazil).

They managed to acquire all the derelict houses in Largo do Boticario, a beautiful colonial cul-de-sac in Cosme Velho (near the tramway for the Christ Statue in Corcovado). It's a lovely, quiet corner of Rio which has been in disrepair for over 30 years. The property will feature swimming pools and a bar with capacity for 300 people. IIRC the area was initially slated for a luxury hotel project, but obviously this model seems to make more sense.

Hats off to Accor for investing in Rio when most other operators are leaving/shelving plans for expansion. I admire them for continuing with Mama Shelter despite what probably seems like dismal occupancy rates (I stayed there a week before carnival, at the height of the high season at what looked like a 10-20% occupancy).

I would find it more useful if all announcements regarding hotel openings went in the same thread, even if the opening date is later than 2018...

Wasn't aware this was the etiquette in this forum. Happy to have mods merge it into the appropriate thread.

Accor PR:

MGallery Pompei Habita 79
Only 200 metres from the entrance to Pompeii, a UNESCO archaeological site, the MGallery Pompei Habita 79 has been revamped with style and in compliance with the highest current standards. This monumental 19th century building will welcome you in its 79 rooms, its spa, fitness centre, its 2 conference rooms and its 150-seat café. The centrepiece of the property is an incredible rooftop and a bar-restaurant offering a unique view of the ancient ruins of Pompei.
25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino
In spring 2020, the 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino (Florence) will welcome its first customers. You may even be a part of it! It is hard not to be tempted by Florence’s old town, in the heart of which the establishment will open its doors.
Sofitel Dubai Wafi: the largest Sofitel in the Middle East
497 luxury rooms and suites, 10 meeting rooms, over 2,300 square meter of meeting facilities... astonishing figures!
Mövenpick Hotel Basel
The Mövenpick Hotel Basel, with its 264 rooms and suites, will bring the brand’s promise of heartfelt service to life in this important cultural and commercial city in Switzerland in 2020.
Swissôtel Kursaal, Bern
The 4-star property will open its doors next year in the Swiss capital. Its charming asset: its panoramic view of the Alps and the medieval old town, which also is a UNESCO world heritage site. The hotel will have 171 rooms with a contemporary design true to its Alpine heritage.
Pullman Paris Montparnasse
After more than 2 years of closing for a complete renovation, it will make its big comeback next year. The 957-room Parisian giant will be decorated the warm colours of rosewood and will alternate between mineral and metallic materials, for a warm and modern atmosphere.
Others:
Adagio London Stratford aparthotel
Novotel Paris Porte de Versailles
JO&JOE Roma
ibis Baku

unfortunately Italy is an unserved market by all the hotel chains, except BW, that is pretty useless as reward program.

There is a whole gap on all the east coast, 550 km from Rimini to Bari without any Accor / Marriott / Hilton / IHG

Mgallery in Pompei (the 3rd one Accor in Naples area) would be very interesting even as business option, depending on rates out of peak period, to sleep near Naples avoiding the central area.
