Heritage and Unique History
Inspired by the heritage and distinguished identity of its first hotel, Warwick Hotels and Resorts developed a collection of hotels and resorts worldwide. An emblematic establishment of Manhattan since 1926, Warwick New York was built by early 20th-century media tycoon William Randolph Hearst for the love of his life, actress Marion Davies. The hotel inevitably became a Manhattan icon, best noted in the background of the famous photograph titled Lunch Atop A Skyscraper. Synonymous with New York glamour and understated elegance, the hotel has hosted countless celebrities throughout its existence and continues to host stars to this day. Regular guests of historical note include Elvis Presley, the Beatles whilst performing at the Ed Sullivan show and Cary Grant, a long-term resident.
Whether it was once the stately residence of English aristocrats, a refuge to glamorous superstars, or a stay between original stone temples amidst royal grounds handed down through generations, many Warwick hotels helped shape history and city skylines. For example, Hotel Westminster in Paris, where the Duke of Westminster once lived in the 19th century, celebrates its 200th anniversary as one of the first hotels in the City of Light. The Warwick Brussels is situated next to the Grand Place in Brussels where the Duke of Wellington inspected his troops before departing for the Battle of Waterloo. The royal family in Ubud, a region known for its musical heritage and Balinese arts, built Warwick Ibah Luxury Villas & Spa in Bali. The Denver Playboy Club, popular in the late 60s and early 70s, is now part of the colourful history of Warwick Denver Hotel. Tropical plants and wildlife surround the 209 luxurious cottages of the Misty Hills Country Hotel near Johannesburg, an oasis of calm filled with traditional African culture. Each Warwick hotel carries a unique story woven into the historical fabric of the city.
Paris, Brussels, Geneva, New York, San Francisco and Bangkok are among the many fascinating cities where Warwick hotels can be found. Proudly located in the heart of each metropolis, Warwick hotels serve as a calm refuge amidst the hustle and bustle. The city centre is often, quite literally, at the doorstep of Warwick hotels.
There is a common purpose behind our endeavours; to create a tasteful and welcoming ambience where guests’ needs are anticipated and expectations surpassed. We care for and cherish traditions and take pride in combining local characteristics with understated elegance and attentive service.
Each of our hotels has a unique story to tell - many retain the intimate ambience of a private residence. While they are all equipped with modern day comforts and amenities, our hotels are a product of a thoughtful restoration; a celebration of the heritage and roots from which we came. We invite you to embark on the Warwick Journey with us and discover the vibrant history behind each hotel.
The Evolution of Our Logo
Every hotel name may have a story, but few hotels can claim inspiration from royalty. From dawn of Warwick, “The Monarch” has represented living and, more importantly, receiving the royal treatment. It symbolises Warwick Hotels and Resorts’ promise - that wherever the emblem reigns, so does a different level of service and sophistication.
Today, our mark still exudes that promise, but it has evolved with our innovations in service excellence into a most iconic form. Our mark is a refined symbol that fluently communicates our enduring passion to surpass expectations, cherish local traditions and provide the upmost in service amid our hotels and resorts’ luxuriously unique settings.
