PHOENIX-WorldHotels today announced the addition of five new properties to the brand’s newest collection of hotels: WorldHotels Crafted Collection. The Hotel Kung Carl, NOFO Hotel, The Winery Hotel, Hotel Frantz, and Hotel Ruth, all located in Stockholm, Sweden, have joined the exclusive portfolio of WorldHotels Crafted Collection hotels and resorts.
“We launched this new collection less than a year ago and we have already seen tremendous growth and success,” said Larry Cuculic, President and Chief Executive Officer of WorldHotels. “Crafted Collection is quickly becoming one of the most authentic, daring and spirited collections of independent hotels around the globe and we are thrilled to welcome these stunning new properties to our portfolio.”
The WorldHotels Crafted Collection is a new generation of lifestyle hotels for guests who love creativity and who are looking for experiences beyond the ordinary. Whether cool, urban, stylish or chic, the common thread connecting Crafted Collection hotels is that a concept, theme or story underlies the hotel’s idea. Here you are met by thoughtful elements in both whole and detail, in the form of beautiful architecture, exciting modern design, history and art.
“The goal of Crafted Collection is to create the leading collection of lifestyle hotels around the world. We are proud to offer Scandinavian hoteliers the opportunity to be part of a group of hotels where creativity, unique experiences and personal service are in focus. We are tapping into a critical trend where today’s travelers seek unique travel experiences and these five new Crafted hotels in Stockholm are no exception,” says Johan Michelson, CEO of BWH Hotel Group Scandinavia.

The Winery Hotel

“Crafted, that is craftsmanship, permeates everything we do at The Winery Hotel,” says Sarah Djerf, Marketing Manager at The Winery Hotel. “From our heart – the winery – where we produce wine from grape to bottle, to the kitchen where the flavors are composed in perfect harmony to the character of the wines. The craftsmanship also follows us into the interior details and the familiar welcome from our vineyard workers. All that together creates the atmosphere that makes our guests feel comfortable, enjoy and return, time and time again.”
