With BLESS Collection Hotels, we are catering to this audience by amplifying the experiences that Palladium Hotel Group is already known for, such as convenience, premium services, high-tech facilities, exceptional design credentials, excellent gastronomy options, and super-fast Wi-Fi, as well as state-of-the-art health and wellness services.”
With this new brand, Palladium Hotel Group doubles down on its commitment to expansion and repositioning. This launch is the first of a series of new hotel openings that the company will announce in the next few months.
