Marriott International announced a major milestone in its Marriott Bonvoy portfolio of independent hotel brands, with the opening of the 200th Autograph Collection hotel, the 50th Tribute Portfolio hotel, and the opening of the 120th Luxury Collection hotel. Together, all three Collection brands are expected to expand their global footprint to nearly 70 new locations in 2021, including 24 new market entries.
Among these new openings, the Luxury Collection is expected to debut Matild Palace (the 120th hotel, shown), in Budapest, Hungary this spring. MKV Design transformed Matild Palace for today’s luxury traveler with Hungarian-influenced design elements and artwork referencing Budapest literature.
In Italy, there’s Grand Universe Lucca, part of Autograph Collection. The 55-room boutique hotel features surprising elements such as the existing building wall foundations dating back to Roman times and an ancient glassblower’s fountain remnants in the cellar.
