MGallery is a Collection of high-end hotels all around the world. Each hotel of the Collection stages with talent a unique personality and story, experienced by guests through its architecture, interior design and services.
Each hotel is inspired by one of the three typical atmospheres of the Collection. Some hotels present ”Heritage” origins, places filled with history; others reflect an aesthetic universe, a style, the “Signature” of a personality that contributed to their creation or decoration; still others promise a relaxing time, “Serenity” in a natural or urban retreat.
All hotels of the Collection invite guests to experience “Memorable Moments”.
Kristin Scott Thomas is the ambassador of the MGallery brand and signs the guide of the Collection
The MGallery Collection is now represented by a charismatic ambassador: Kristin Scott Thomas, an actress with an international career and a rich and diverse filmography.
Kristin Scott Thomas, recognised for her sensitivity and her unique personality, says that she "gives highest priority to films that transport you" and confesses to enjoy "being in places full of soul". It is therefore only natural that has agreed to become the ambassador for this Collection.
The MGallery guide leads travellers in search of new experiences to discover exceptional places. It is available to guests in all the hotels of the Collection. If an exceptional location is given an iconography, each hotel presentation tells the story of the site and uncovers its treasures and secrets.
The actress, who divides her time between France, Great Britain and the United States and travels the world, was involved in the creation of the MGallery guide. Through her travel notes, Kristin Scott Thomas also shares with readers a few of her many memories… City neighbourhoods to discover, specialties to savour, moments of life to share... Plus many personal favourites to savour freely.
MGallery and its Memorable Moments
Happiness is made of small moments of life… Moments of rare delight that you must seize when they arrive to transform them into unforgettable memories. This "very Epicurean philosophy" is adopted by the hotels of the MGallery Collection.
Indeed, whatever the destination you choose to set sail to, you will have the privilege of discovering, for an exceptional moment, an experience as unique as unexpected.
The Phoenix Hotel in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, offers you a journey "into the past" in a famous Mercedes Benz dating back to 1961 to discover an authentic batik workshop and the secrets of the old technique of fabric dyeing.
In Naples, the Palazzo Caracciolo will open the doors of its private Collection of figurines from the famous Ferrigno family. A visit normally unavailable to the public.
At the Hotel Francés in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, you will discover the colonial city in a carriage, while enjoying a glass of champagne before a romantic candlelit dinner.
As you can see, each hotel offers you its very own moment of pleasure… A break inspired by the personality of each hotel where lifestyle, culture and tradition combine to offer you a cocktail of emotion and happiness… like no other.
The "Living Room," warm living quarters
An open, intimate, warm and discreet space midway between a drawing-room and a lounge, our "Living Room" is a place that underscores the quality of the MGallery experience and immerses guests in the hotel’s story. By turns a café, reading room or library, the Living Room opens on to the other public areas of the hotel, fostering a friendly atmosphere where guests can socialize and bask in the spirit of the premises.
Another MGallery pleasure is the "S-room", a modern-day smoking room at hotels in countries where permitted by law. In a hushed atmosphere conducive to relaxation, guests may choose from a selection of premium cigars and feel free to enjoy a good smoke.
As for the hotel bar, a place for enjoyment par excellence, the fine selection of products on offer implies a thorough knowledge of each drink and its origin. Again, most of our hotels highlight their individuality for they all have their own original drink, a signature drink referencing the hotel's history and made exclusively with the finest ingredients.
The MGallery collection hotel network
At the time of launch in September 2008, the MGallery Collection comprised eight hotels in Europe and in the Asia-Pacific region. Today, it has expanded to the five continents with 48 hotels. The Collection will further grow to 100 properties by 2015.
This selective expansion strategy is premised on choosing hotels that are exceptional through their location, their design, their vision or their history, in major international business and leisure destinations.
