Dorchester Collection was established in 2006 to manage a portfolio of some of the world’s foremost luxury hotels in Europe and the USA and its launch signalled a change to the strategic goals of the company. By applying its unrivalled experience in owning and operating some of the world’s great individual hotels, the company’s vision is to become the ultimate hotel management company, with a passion for excellence and innovation, honouring the individuality and heritage of its hotels. This will be achieved through both acquiring hotels and managing hotels on behalf of third party owners. People know the hotels of Dorchester Collection. They are icons in their own right with worldwide reputations as places offering the best and most sought-after experiences of good living, charm, elegance and service. Each hotel celebrates its own original character enriched by contemporary styling and state-of-the-art facilities. With historic buildings in outstanding locations each hotel also embodies the culture of its city.
