Preferred Hotels Adds 17 New Properties In the Third Quarter of 2018

Preferred Hotels celebrates the third quarter of 2018 with 17 new properties.

The one-of-a-kind independent experience is the key piece that unites these properties.

Below are the highlights of a few of the new locations.

Villa del Quar (Valpolicella, Italy) – Situated in the leafy vineyards of the Veneto region, within easy reach of both Lake Garda and Verona, this national monument turned luxury hotel traces its origins back to the Roman Empire as a place where weary soldiers would stop to rest their horses and take a break from the road. Today, the hotel comprises 25 luxury rooms and suites with exposed wood beams, period furniture, Venetian floors, and its standout 560 square metre master suite is the largest in Italy’s countryside featuring gated access, private gardens, butler service, and a heliport.

The Sanchaya (Bintan, Indonesia) – The stately hideaway is cocooned amidst 10 hectares of tropical gardens and white sand beachfront on Bintan Island, less than an hour from Singapore by ferry. The colonial-inspired estate comprises 30 expansive and immaculately furnished suites and villas with outdoor spaces and direct access to the beach.

Aliz Hotel Times Square (New York, United States) – Opening its doors this month as one of New York’s tallest hotels, the upscale property is perfectly positioned for business travellers and tourists alike – and their pet companions, too – who want to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of buzzing Midtown Manhattan. The 287 modern guestrooms and suites are elegantly appointed, with most offering iconic skyline views.
