Templar Hotel is a luxurious, custom-built retreat in one of Toronto’s coolest neighborhoods. With unique art installations, bespoke high-end furnishings and exemplary service, it’s an eclectic urban hangout where guests can truly relax and unwind. When guests arrive at the Templar Hotel, an 8-story shard in the beating heart of Toronto’s chic Entertainment District, they quickly realize that this is no ordinary city hangout. Whether they are dropped off by the stylish airport shuttle (a Porsche Panamera) or walk from the nearby Metro Toronto Convention Center, they’re seen craning their necks to marvel at its shimmering glass and aluminum facade.
When we first went inside Las Clementinas in 2007, we had only a vague idea how wonderful a property it was. Clearly her façade was majestic and her gardens, with their twin 50-year-old 80-foot-tall palm trees and remnants of the old city wall, called our attention. We knew a bit of the history–how the gardens had been deed protected for the “embellishment of the city” and had ultimately been lost to foreclosure in the mid 20th century–but it wasn’t until we had spent six months cleaning away decades of debris that we truly understood that the building that the family of Sra. Clementina Herrera built in 1930 was one of Casco Antiguo’s masterpieces.
After three years of work, we are proud to announce the public opening of Las Clementinas Chambers, Café and Bar. Because her structural bones were intact, we were able to maintain the same distribution as Doña Clementina’s apartment building, which means that each of Las Clementinas chambers is really an apartment unto itself, with great space, light and views. While the spaces have kept their classic feel, and many of the common area historic finishes were recovered, the chamber interiors have been re-built completely with all modern comforts.

With the opening of the latest addition to its eminent Mondrian brand, Morgans Hotel Group enchants guests with yet another innovative vision by Benjamin Noriega Ortiz, inspired by Jean Cocteau’s cinematic interpretation of the tale of “La Belle et la Bête”. With Mondrian’s design, Noriega awakens the imagination and invites guests into a fantasy that offers an escape.

Located just minutes from the famous Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Elysees, the historic Le Royal Monceau has welcomed innumerable dignitaries, celebrities and artists since it opened in 1928.
Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris closed in 2008 for an entire transformation conducted by the famous French designer Philippe Starck. The hotel reopened its doors in October 2010 as a new generation palace where art and culture are predominant. The dream was to create somewhere different, a place that is first and foremost felt through the energy intertwined with its history, with Paris and its sense of hospitality. A dream to create a space that is above all in the mind and the senses, interspersed with encounters, sensations and emotions, ingrained with the French spirit, imbued with culture and devoted to true elegance: the elegance of intelligence, of human relations and poetic moments.

Nobis Hotel, located in Stockholm city has been designed for optimal function, beauty, comfort and atmosphere by world renowned Swedish star architect studio Claesson Koivisto Rune, in a style of contemporary and beautiful yet timeless and classic, durable elegance, mainly in natural materials of superior quality, subtly influenced by the colors, moods and features of our Swedish Royal Capital. Luxury of today is not about flash, flaunting or excess in any traditional sense. Contemporary luxury is a more subtle and complex quality: the privilege of enjoying our time in maximum comfort, ease, grace and efficiency, with a minimum of nuisance, regardless of our personal tastes and professional requirements.
With a location in two historic late 19th-century buildings on Norrmalmstorg square in the city centre of Stockholm, Nobis Hotel is an independent 201-room hotel offering every convenience and service any business and/or pleasure traveler could ever call for, in an environment of casual elegance.

As a part of Dorchester Collection, 45 Park Lane will act in a manner founded on fair treatment of our people, responsiveness to the needs of our guests, environmental responsibility, ethical business practice, and by making a positive contribution to local communities. 45 Park Lane has been considering corporate responsibility issues from the start; in the hotels’ design, in our chosen partners, and in the way the hotel will be managed once open in 2011.
This is evident in the redesign of the current concrete façade to incorporate eco-friendly fins, which will diminish solar gain to the building and significantly reduce the power required to run the air conditioning system. Further environmental benefits will be gained by sharing resources and initiatives with The Dorchester such as a ‘Turbo Cor Compressor’ and a CHP boiler. These services will be carried through a specially built underground tunnel running between the properties that measures 3.5 metres in diameter, 10 metres deep and 120 metres long. The tunnels dimensions are a result of our efforts to weave around the roots of the plane tree, one of London’s Great Trees (source: Time Out) on The Dorchester’s forecourt.
Prominently positioned in the heart of Singapore’s prestigious Central Business District and Arts and Cultural precinct, the luxury hotel is minutes from the nation’s iconic cultural landmarks and close to the main shopping belts of Suntec City and Orchard Road.
