Big changes at Dolce see formation of specialist conference division

This week, Andy Dolce, the founder, chairman and managing director of Dolce International announced the metamorphosis of the global Dolce brand into two divisions including Dolce Conference Hotels. In addition to a new name and logo, the group will enjoy further expansion and renovation, as well as sweeping design and operational changes throughout the collection.

“The essence of our brand has always been to deliver exceptional meeting and hospitality services,” said Dolce. “We are now taking our standards and expertise to a whole new level by creating spaces and experiences that inspire our guests and foster big ideas in a way not seen before in our industry. We hope to further distinguish our hotels, resorts and conference hotels by providing the most inspiring, most hospitable and most thoughtful environments for our guests.”

Andy Dolce praised the 2007 partnership with Broadreach Capital as a relationship that will enable the group to grow significantly in the future, and introduced the segmentation of its portfolio of 24 properties into two divisions, Hotels and Resorts, and Conference Hotels.

Another visible aspect of Dolce’s regeneration is the $100 million investment being made in capital improvements at a number of properties in the company’s portfolio, including Dolce Chantilly and Dolce Frégate Provence in France, Dolce La Hulpe in Belgium and Dolce Sitges in Spain.

Philip Maritz, managing director of Broadreach Capital, expressed great optimism about the company’s future, not only based on the investments and new initiatives, but because the company has grown in response to its guests’ needs. This philosophy has allowed the business to nearly triple its size in the past decade and positions Dolce Hotels and Resorts for further global growth and success.
