This upscale brand got its start in 1906 as the Italian chain Compagnia Italiana Grandi Alberghi, which included some of the most famous luxury hotels in Italy. Nearly a century later in 1994, the Starwood Group (which is now a part of Marriott International) purchased CIGA and its entire portfolio, which had expanded to include high-end hotels in Spain, Austria and Sardinia. Having been rebranded to better showcase what these hotels are all about, The Luxury Collection now comprises more than 100 hotels across 41 countries, including the United States. The amenities and decor in each property spotlights the history, the architecture and the culture of its surrounding city: For example, the spa at Hacienda Temozon in Mexico's Yucatan region offers treatments inspired by ancient Maya traditions, while The Liberty in Boston still retains some of the architectural elements of the former Charles Street Jail. And at each hotel, guests can expect excellent customer service, which is what earned The Luxury Collection properties several spots on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Europe and Best Hotels in Mexico rankings. What's more, because The Luxury Collection falls under the Marriott banner, frequent visitors can redeem their Marriott Rewards points at any property.
