MINNEAPOLIS AND BRUSSELS—Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group announces the first member hotels of Quorvus Collection: The May Fair Hotel London, the G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh, and the Symphony Style Hotel Kuwait.
“We are delighted to welcome three iconic hotels to Quorvus Collection, our latest luxury brand,” announced Wolfgang M. Neumann, president and chief executive officer of The Rezidor Hotel Group, at the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference in Dubai. “Each property has its own unique style, personality, and heritage with one essential factor at the core—a five-star luxury hotel experience.”
Quorvus Collection is the latest brand created by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group to cover the luxury hotel segment. Member hotels are historic landmarks, contemporary residences, classic boutiques, and urban retreats—all different in scale, architecture, ambiance, and design, yet committed to the same service philosophy.
The May Fair Hotel London, owned and operated by Edwardian Group London, was first opened by King George V in 1927. It has 404 bedrooms, including 12 suites, a bar, a spa, and a 201-seat private screening room. “As a luxury lifestyle hotel in the heart of London, The May Fair is a historic building with a modern design,” stated Iype Abraham, commercial development director of Edwardian Group. “We are delighted to be a member of the Quorvus Collection and look forward to further enhancing our guest experience.”
The G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh, is situated in the heart of Edinburgh at the corner of George IV Bridge, Victoria Street, and The Royal Mile. It offers 136 rooms and suites, an award-winning restaurant that serves dishes inspired by classic Italian cooking, and a bar. The hotel also features three modern event spaces, a breakout area, and a city spa.
The Symphony Style Hotel Kuwait is part of the Symphony complex in Salmiya, the main shopping and entertainment district of Kuwait City. Eighteen floors high, the hotel has 169 rooms and suites, three restaurants, and six event spaces. It also offers an outdoor pool and a Six Senses Spa.
“These three unique hotels lay a strong foundation for the further development of Quorvus Collection. The Edinburgh and Kuwait hotels will join the Quorvus Collection immediately and we anticipate The May Fair joining the Collection later in the summer of 2014. We aim to grow a global portfolio of 20 hotels in operation and under development by 2020 through conversions and newly built urban hotels and resorts,” Neumann added.
