The Luxury Collection
The Luxury Collection brand was established when ITT Sheraton purchased the controlling interests of CIGA (Compagnia Italiana Grandi Alberghi, or Italian Grand Hotels Company), an Italian hotel chain, in 1994 (ITT Sheraton was to one day itself be purchased by Starwood - see above).
ITT Sheraton kept CIGA's original logo (the four horses of St. Mark) for The Luxury Collection brand logo, however as of September 2009, The Luxury Collection no longer uses this logo; each Luxury Collection hotel now uses its own logo.
Many of The Luxury Collection's hotels and resorts pertain to their
location or surroundings and vary in age and theme; the 552 room
Palace Hotel, San Francisco, California USA was the world's largest
hotel, many Luxury Collection hotels were once residencies for
European aristocracy and monarchy, for example, Hotel Imperial in
Vienna, Austria was once the residence of Prince of Württemberg.
Notable guests of Hotel Elephant in Weimar, Germany include Goethe,
Liszt, Johan Sebastian Bach and Leo Tolstoy.
