Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has announced the first members of its luxury Quorvus Collection, including its two properties from the now defunct Hotel Missoni brand.
The G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh (formerly Hotel Missoni Edinburgh) and the Symphony Style Hotel Kuwait (formerly Hotel Missoni Kuwait, pictured below) have joined the collection of “expertly curated luxury hotels inspired by the lifestyle and sensibilities of the contemporary global traveller”.
Carlson Rezidor ended its tie-up with fashion brand Missoni earlier this year (see online news March 3), and the two hotels within the portfolio have since been renamed.
The May Fair Hotel London (owned by the Edwardian Group which also runs the Radisson Blu Edwardian brand under a franchise agreement with Carlson Rezidor) will also join the collection later this year.
Carlson Rezidor announced plans to launch two new global brands (the Quorvus Collection and Radisson Red) earlier this year (see online news February 20).
According to the group, the Quorvus name originates from the Southern sky Corvus constellation featuring the five brightest stars”, with member properties being “historic landmarks, contemporary residences, classic boutiques and urban retreats – all different in scale, architecture, ambiance and design, yet committed to the same, unparalleled service philosophy”.
