BWH Hotel Group subsidiary WorldHotels has officially launched its newest collection of hotels: WorldHotels Crafted Collection. Created last year, the collection is officially off the ground with a portfolio of independent hotels and resorts.

"We announced this new collection just weeks before the world was ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic," said David Kong, president and CEO of BWH Hotel Group. "Despite the tremendous challenges that our hotels and industry have faced over the last year, Crafted Collection is quickly becoming one of the most authentic, daring and spirited collections of independent hotels around the globe."

"Crafted is not just another lifestyle brand; it is a new generation of lifestyle hotels made for a new generation of travelers that crave creativity, immersive experiences, great design, and ingenuity," said Gregory Habeeb, president of WorldHotels, North America. "Each hotel provides seamless, humble and expert service that creates an emotional connection with the guests, reminding guests why they love to travel."

  • Acme Hotel Company in Chicago

  • La Casa del Zorro in Borrego Springs, Calif.   
  • Warwick Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia
