In 2019, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) commended the Portuguese government for making tourism a priority with a 8.1% growth in 2019 and contributing USD $45.5BN to the nation’s economy. This meant that €1 in every €5 came from tourism in Portugal. This level of growth is the highest of any country Europe. Of course, coronavirus changed everything. The astonishing growth, however, resulted in the expansion of new neighborhoods in Lisbon that allowed new hotels and restaurants to flourish. Nestled in one of Lisbon’s new and growing areas is a luxury apartment hotel: Upon Lisbon where 129 fully-equipped apartments provide travelers the comforts of both a hotel and of a home.
