WorldHotelsTM Expands Global Portfolio with Stunning
New Properties

Brand welcomes five new properties across U.S. and Europe

Phoenix, Arizona (September 9, 2021) – WorldHotels Collection is proud to welcome five spectacular properties to its collection of the finest independent hotels around the world. From a historic landmark in San Francisco, California to an immersive hotel in Milan, Italy, these new WorldHotels properties provide the unique luxury and lifestyle preferred by today’s sophisticated traveler.

“We are thrilled to welcome these exquisite properties at an exciting time in the company’s history as we celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary this year under the theme ‘A WORLD Reimagined,’” said David Kong, President and Chief Executive Officer of WorldHotels. “Each of these unique and sophisticated properties is an ideal fit for our brand and strengthens WorldHotels’ reputation as one of the finest portfolios of independent hotels and resorts around the globe. Bringing these hotels into the portfolio at a time of tremendous challenge for the hotel industry, especially in the upscale and luxury segments, is particularly meaningful because it serves as a marker of the strength and resilience of our brand and industry.”

Built in 1914, Hotel Bijou is a landmark hotel that combines the historic elegance of San Francisco with modern comfort and eclectic style. The hotel features 65 spacious guest rooms recently renovated with a chic and modern Art Deco design, transporting guests to the roaring 1920s. Ranked on Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards Top 15 Hotels in San Francisco, Hotel Bijou also offers unique experiences, such as an in-room spa service with specialty massage services and a relaxing wellness package that focuses on meditation and breathing. Located in San Francisco’s Union Square, the hotel is just moments from the Moscone Convention Center, public transportation, great shopping and nightlife.

Ten Hill Place is one of Edinburgh's premier City Centre hotels. This innovative Edinburgh hotel is within easy walking distance of Princes Street, the historic Old Town and the City Centre's main tourist, shopping and business districts; yet peacefully situated away from the main thoroughfares. The Festival Theatre is across the road, the National Museums are around the corner and the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace are just a stone's throw away. Ten Hill Place is owned by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and all profits go back into training surgeons worldwide. Historic and contemporary rooms are available within Surgeons' Hall for conferences, meetings, and social events.

A blissful retreat where traditional meets luxury, the Murrayshall Country House Hotel is ideal for outdoor getaways, family holidays and business events. The charming hotel is set within a 365-acre private estate in the beautiful countryside, three miles from the city of Perth and four miles from Scone Palace, and boasts two impeccably presented golf courses. Most of the 40 individually styled bedrooms and suites have views overlooking the lush gardens or surrounding golf courses and foodies will love what's on offer on the carefully crafted menu of the hotel’s award-winning restaurant. The luxury four-star Murrayshall Country House Hotel will leave guests feeling invigorated from their stay.

The WorldHotel Casati 18 combines the traditional Italian elegance and contemporary convenience of Milan. Personalized service is only one of the luxuries that guests will continue to remember long after their stay. Hidden away on the quiet Via Felice Casati, the hotel offers guests a tranquil reprieve from bustling Milan, which lies waiting a short distance away.

With its recent renovations, the 100-year-old Hotel Haarhuis offers travelers the perfect combination of rich history and modern service. Guests can grab a coffee at the onsite HOEK Coffee and Pastry, or visit the hotel’s restaurant, Perron 5, which offers incredible culinary journeys with fresh and pure homemade ingredients. A truly unique travel experience.
