Marriott's Autograph Collection to Launch in Spain

Last year in the United States, Marriott launched the Autograph Collection, a portfolio of hotels and resorts described as "distinct" and "independent…representing upper-upscale and luxury properties with distinctive personalities."

This year, the collection will come to Europe with the addition of four new hotels in Spain. The first four Autograph Collection hotels in Europe are:

• AC Santo Mauro, Madrid
• AC Palacio del Retiro, Madrid
• AC Palacio de Santa Paula, Granada
• AC Baqueira Hotel & Spa, Baqueira

By May, these four hotels will join the company’s Autograph Collection as part of a recently announced joint venture with AC Hotels and its portfolio of 9,100 hotel rooms in Europe. The joint venture also includes the launch of a new brand, AC Hotels by Marriott, which will initially be comprised of up to 86 rebranded AC Hotels in Spain, Italy and Portugal, plus the four hotels joining the Autograph Collection.
