There is more to Design Hotels™ than ‘just’ design. Each of the company’s member hotels represents a story. A story of innovation, sustainability, originality and individuality. From humble beginnings, with only ten members, the company has grown into a global network of more than 290 independent hotels in more than 60 countries. Each property is hand-selected and checked personally. To be a member of Design Hotels™, not only design and service are critical, but those individuals behind the hotel – “Originals”, as the company calls them – and their vision is equally, if not more important. Every year, the company also publishes the Design Hotels™ Book, a beautiful coffee table book which showcases its members and celebrates designers and architects making a splash in the hospitality industry with its Influencers List.
