Accor introduces Handwritten Collection

Believing hotels are where genuine connections are made and authentic travel experiences are enriched, the hoteliers of Handwritten Collection invite travellers to experience a twist on traditional hospitality without turning it on its head.
Whether they’ve arrived from a thousand miles away or for their staycation, guests are offered a balance between quirk and charm, giving each the so-good satisfaction of having found a gem.
Like a handwritten note, hosts’ singular touches are subtly felt at select moments throughout. From a welcome that cascades into conversation, to freshly baked treats that have guests sneaking seconds into their pockets. No two hotels or stays are the same, and that’s how they like it.
A host with a passion
