Unlike many of their competitors, Rosewood is an unconventional brand in the world of luxury hotels. None of the properties in the collection incorporate Rosewood into its name, nor does any property fly a Rosewood corporate flag. Additionally, no two properties in the collection are alike. However, the differences are not just aesthetic. Each Rosewood Hotel and Resort incorporates the local culture, history and soul of its environment creating A Sense of Place® within each property.
