"We are honored to have been chosen to represent this extraordinary mélange of prestigious hotels, many of which embody more than a century of eclectic history and distinguished hospitality."
Based in Cologne, Althoff Hotels’ ALTHOFF COLLECTION, AMERON COLLECTION and URBAN LOFT brands encompass some 20 luxurious European hotels. The group is
one of Europe’s largest privately owned hotel collections, begun in 1984 by Thomas H. Althoff and his wife, Elke Diefenbach-Althoff. The Althoff brands combine a dedication to gracious service, generous hospitality, fine dining, art, culture and design.
Jewels in the crown of Althoff Hotels include the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg in Cologne, the St. James’s Hotel & Club in London, the Villa Belrose in St. Tropez, and the Bellerive au Lac in Zurich. The group also has deluxe hotels in Bavaria and northern Germany, and it is currently restoring and renovating two of the country’s leading “grand hotels,” the Dom Hotel in Cologne, and the Althoff Frankfurt, formerly Villa Kennedy.
