Dorchester Collection was established in 2006 and since then, it has sought to acquire historical hotels and refresh them with their own values. Dorchester Collection’s 10 hotels are located throughout Europe and the USA and their pioneering approach sent a strong signal to the world of luxury hospitality. The company attracts visionary leaders and passionate staff to carry out its mission: pursuing excellence and innovation whilst honoring the individuality and heritage of its properties.


 

Four Seasons has an extensive history, tracing its origins back to the1960s when its first hotel was born. From these humble origins, the group now finds itself responsible for 96 hotels in 41 countries. Their people-based culture is renown throughout the world of hospitality and the connection with their guests is a coveted distinction – one that they still uphold now and always.


 

The powerful combination of Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel into FRHI in 2006 spelt a change for the future of hospitality, harnessing the extensive and individual skill set of each brand to progress together as one driven body, while succeeding to preserve the illustrious identities of most properties – much to the joy of their loyal customers.
