Ask any devoted traveler why they roam, and they’ll tell you much the same thing: to discover. Travel, at its core, is about stepping out of one’s comfort zone, about being immersed in new cultures, places and ways of life. Yet speak to any true traveler, and they’ll also tell you one other thing: it’s exhausting. At the end of a day filled with incredible sights, sounds, flavors and experiences, there’s nothing more welcome than retiring to a sanctuary of calm – even better if that refuge boasts spacious accommodations, relaxing spa amenities and a location in the very heart of a captivating destination.

Founded by independent hoteliers dedicated to the art of exceptional hospitality, WorldHotels™ presents a portfolio of independent properties around the globe that do just that, expertly curated to inspire life-enriching experiences which connect people and places, while also offering inviting spaces and indulgent comforts for travelers seeking to recharge after each exciting day of discovery.

The WorldHotels™ repertoire comprises four unique collections, each exuding its own personality that appeals to the needs of today’s discerning traveler. The collections include WorldHotels™ Luxury, featuring iconic landmark properties that constitute destinations all their own; WorldHotels™ Elite, centring on outstanding service and sumptuous style in sought-after locations; WorldHotels™ Crafted, characterized by creative design and immersive experiences that capture the spirit of a city; and WorldHotels™ Distinctive, promising affordable luxury and comfort in vibrant neighborhoods across the globe.

Every WorldHotels™ property, regardless of collection, is defined by its unparalleled experiences, superior standard of service and profound sense of place – the kind of hotel that true travelers seek.
