[Photos] The Leading Hotels of the World welcome seven new properties

The upscale hotel collection unveiled seven additional members, thus significantly strengthening its portfolio in Europe (five hotels) and South America (two addresses).

Several renown properties are joining The Leading Hotels of the World network: its portfolio expands across seven destinations, including two European capitals. In London, The Lanesborough (93 rooms) is a historic hotel renovated in 2015, located a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park. Céleste, its Michelin-starred restaurant, is headed by French Chef Érich Fréchon. In Rome, the intimate Portrait Roma (14 studios and suites) is joining the exclusive network. The property is located near the Piazza di Spagna and its famous Spanish stairs, a popular neighborhood for luxury shopping.

The collection's additional European addresses are located in three high-profile destinations for luxury hospitality; first of all in Courchevel, with the addition of the Barrière Les Neiges hotel (22 rooms and 20 suites) which is set to experience its first season this winter. Also a new opening of 2016, Il Sereno hotel (34 rooms) will also welcome its guests in the heart of the Alps, this time on the shores of Lake Como. Finally in Hamburg, The Fontenay (131 rooms) will contribute to the strengthening of the city state's upscale hotel supply. The property, whose opening is now slated for early 2017, is a newly-built hotel located by the Außenalter, the city’s largest artificial lake.

Both of the network's new South American members operate in Chile. In the capital, The Singular Santiago, Lastarria Hotel has 62 rooms. The Singular Patagonia is a 57-room property located in the center of the celebrated eponymous southern region. This atypical hotel is the former home of the Frigorifico Bories, a cold storage plant built in the early 20th century. Entirely renovated, it was classified as a national monument in 1996.

Launched in 1928, The Leading Hotels of the World is a network of 370 upscale addresses worldwide. Its portfolio now encompasses 75 countries and territories.
