Rocco Forte Hotels is a group of luxury hotels and resorts.[1] It was established in 1996 by hotelier Sir Rocco Forte and his sister, Olga Polizzi, to create a group of luxury hotels in locations around the world. The group comprises a number of properties, each with its own name and distinct personality.

History[edit]

Sir Rocco Forte and Olga Polizzi are the children of Lord Forte, the late hotel magnate. The rights to the Forte name were initially lost in 1996, when Granada plc bought the Forte Group.

The group began as RF Hotels, changing its name to Rocco Forte Hotels in 2003 and The Rocco Forte Collection on 29 July 2007. The group name then reverted to Rocco Forte Hotels in 2011. The group's sales offices are located in London, Rome, Frankfurt, Moscow, Madrid, New York City and Los Angeles.

As a brand of Rocco Forte Hotels Limited, the group owns and manages luxury five-star hotels. Brown's Hotel, Hotel de Rome and Hotel Amigo are members of The Leading Hotels of the World.[2]
