Established in 1993 as the first of its kind, with a portfolio of only 10 iconic member properties, Design Hotels™ today represents and markets a hand-selected collection of privately owned and operated hotels—each a wholly unique creative expression—in hundreds of destinations around the globe, from world capitals and exclusive mountaintops to hidden beaches, off-the-beaten-path escapes, and beyond. Far more than a loosely affiliated assortment of properties, Design Hotels™ unites hotels that reflect the vision of independent hoteliers—“Originals”—with a passion for genuine, culturally rooted hospitality and cutting-edge design and architecture. Design Hotels™ members go beyond merely curating their own neighborhoods—though they do that with great passion, providing truly local experiences—they curate culture within their very own establishments. Our member properties transform the hotel from a place offering accommodations into one that creates platforms for shared experiences among people united by passions, ideas, and inspirations. As a global lifestyle brand and full-service marketing consultancy, Design Hotels™ offers its members customized B2B services, including global launch campaigns, sales representation, revenue management, strategic marketing, public relations, and branding. And of course, we bring together an engaged community of followers who seek out travel inspirations and Original Experiences and find them in new hotels, established, transformative, and unexpected.
