Marriott International's collection of independent hotels, Autograph Collection Hotels, is adding four new properties from around the globe.
The additions include Florida's Saint Hotel Key West, the Q&C Hotel and Bar in New Orleans, Michigan's The Inn at Bay Harbor and Hotel Nassau Breda in the Netherlands.
Hotel Nassau Breda opened just last month, while the Saint Hotel Key West and the Q&C Hotel and Bar recently underwent major renovations.
Boasting just three dozen rooms, the Saint Hotel Key West is the smallest of the four properties. But what the hotel lacks in inventory it more than makes up for in charm and history. One of the oldest operating hotels in Key West, the property formerly known as the Southern Cross Hotel reopened last year with a new name following a $22 million purchase and transformation.
Like the Saint Hotel Key West, the Big Easy's Q&C Hotel and Bar boasts tremendous history. The 196-room hotel is more than 100 years old but is equipped with all the modern amenities today's guests covet thanks to a complete renovation in 2014.
The 95-room Hotel Nassau Breda opened May 26, 2016 but features a historic charm courtesy of its location along one of the oldest streets in Breda's city center.
The Inn at Bay Harbor in Bay Harbor, Michigan also benefits from its unique locale. The 123-room inn is situated on the shore of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay. In addition to lakeside dining and a wine bar, the property boasts a full-service spa and saloon as well as a golf club.
"We are very pleased to welcome these four properties to our rapidly growing and diverse global portfolio," said Autograph Collection Hotels' Vice President and Global Lead Julius Robinson in a statement. "Exactly like nothing else, each destination has been thoughtfully selected for its bold originality, rich character and uncommon details."
Launched in 2010, Marriott's Autograph Collection is already closing in on 100 hotels worldwide.
