NH Hotels launches upscale NH Collection NH Collection Palazzo Barocci, Venice, is the first property in the collection

NH Hotel Group has unveiled a new premium brand as part of a strategic five-year plan announced by the group earlier this year.

Officially unveiled earlier, the NH Collection will house the company’s upper-upscale hotels and aims to fulfil the demands of the discerning leisure and business traveller looking for top-quality products and services in strategic city locations.

All hotels featured within the new brand will offer extraordinary comfort levels and personalised care with high attention to detail.

Guests staying at an NH Collection hotel will enjoy a host of new services known as ‘Brilliant Basics’ which make up NH Hotel Group’s core offering.

These include amenities like professional hairdryers and Nespresso coffee machines in every room. T

These exclusive hotels offer additional services including express laundry, courtesy pressing, in-room newspaper, high-speed Wi-Fi, late check-out, late breakfast and top fitness facilities.

The occasion was marked by the official opening of the NH Collection Palazzo Barocci in Venice, a 59-room boutique hotel located opposite the iconic Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge.

Dating back to the 17th century, this elegant property is traditional yet contemporary, creating a link between the past and the present.

A luxurious base from which to discover Venice, the NH Collection Palazzo Barocci boasts its own private dock so that guests can arrive by boat or gondola.

There are five different types of rooms, each designed to provide guests with the highest level of service, with some offering stunning views of the Grand Canal while others overlook the Canaletto gardens.

There are a range of dining options including a bar-cafeteria, a cocktail bar and a lounge bar in the garden terrace. 

By the end of 2014, the NH Collection is expected to have 33 hotels in Spain, Italy, Mexico, Argentina and the Czech Republic.

The portfolio will increase to 42 NH Collection hotels in 2015.
