Six Boscolo Hotels in Europe are to join the
Autograph Collection, Marriott International’s fastest growing
The first four Boscolo Hotels will join Autograph
Collection in September 2011, with the remaining two hotels
expected to join by January 2012. The first four hotels are:
• Boscolo Palace Roma, Rome, Italy
• Boscolo Venezia,
• Boscolo Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
Boscolo Budapest, Budapest, Hungary
In 2012, the following two

Last year, Marriott International launched
Autograph Collection, a group of luxury
hotels, each hand-selected for their originality, character and
uncommon details. The first four Autograph Collection Hotels in
Europe were added in Spain in May of this year, and with the
addition of these six Boscolo properties, located in some of
Europe’s most beautiful cities, Autograph Collection has now grown
to 26 properties globally.
“These Boscolo Hotels are an
incredible addition to the Autograph Collection,” said Amy
McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott
International in Europe. “Located in some of the most spectacular
cities in the world, each hotel is truly one-of-a-kind. Autograph Collection is an exceptional opportunity for both Marriott and our
hotel partners, as we are now able to offer truly original and independent hotel experiences to our guests and as part of
Autograph Collection, our partner hotels are able to tap in to the
power of Marriott’s sales and reservations engines. We strongly
believe that Autograph Collection will continue to be a huge
growth platform for us and a key component of our European
expansion strategy as we seek to reach
80,000 rooms in Europe by
The new Autograph Collection hotels include:
87-room Boscolo Palace Roma is located on
Rome’s famed Via Veneto. Designed in the 1920’s by Marcello Piacentini, the elegant boutique hotel just completed a

Venezia is housed in the historic Palazzo Rizzo Patarol, formerly
home to the French embassy. The hotel boasts one of the largest private
parks in Venice, once host to Vivaldi’s violin concerts.

is located in Prague’s
historical centre. The hotel is housed in the former headquarters of the Czech postal service.
Located in the heart of
Budapest, the 185-room Boscolo Budapest was built in 1894

unique in its stucco and gold decor.
The 238-room Boscolo
Exedra Rome is located on a magnificent piazza within the ancient
Roman ruins of the Diocletian Baths and the Basilica degli Angeli
