Dezeen promotion: a perforated, cylindrical cultural centre in Miami and bespoke Danish-designed guestrooms in a New York hotel are among the shortlisted projects for this year’s Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design Americas.

The AHEAD Americas awards recognises hotel and hospitality projects completed in North and South America, and Canada between September 2015 and December 2016.

Winners will be announced in a ceremony at Herzog & de Meuron’s Perez Art Museum in Miami on 28 June 2017.

Shortlisted projects are divided into 12 categories: Bar, Club or Lounge; Event Spaces; Guestrooms; Hotel Renovation & Restoration; Landscaping & Outdoor Spaces; Lobby & Public Spaces; Resort Hotel; Restaurant; Spa & Wellness; Suite; Urban Hotel – Conversion; and Urban Hotel – Newbuild.

Among the 48 nominees, six of the shortlisted hotels are in Mexico and Colombia, with the majority located in the United States.

The overall winners will be selected by AHEAD’s judges, a panel of leading hospitality architects, designers, owners, operators, developers and industry commentators.

The judges include Randa Tukan, senior vice president and global director of hospitality at HOK’s Toronto Office; Bill Barrie of the Americas, The Ritz Carlton and Edition; and Kenneth Allen Villamil, global vice president of product and brand development at the Park Hyatt, Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Centric and the Unbound Collection Hotels.

The AHEAD Awards celebrate the best new hotels in Asia, the Americas, the Middle East & Africa, and Europe. The Americas event is the second of eight regional award ceremonies taking place around the world in 2017 and 2018.

The winners of the AHEAD Asia hospitality awards were announced during Singapore Design Week last month at the Capitol Theatre.
