WHR was founded over 35 years ago starting with its first hotel – the iconic Warwick New York, acquired in 1980. An emblematic establishment of the Big Apple since 1926, The Warwick Hotel New York was commissioned by William Randolph Hearst with inspiration from his love, actress Marion Davis, and was built next to the Ziegfeld Theatre to host their Hollywood friends. Since then, the hotel continues to host celebrities and is synonymous with New York glamour and understated elegance.
Inspired by the heritage of this hotel, Warwick has developed a collection of luxury hotels and resorts worldwide derived from its identity. Each Warwick hotel is bound by its individuality along with its own remarkable and unique story to tell. Warwick Le Crystal – Montréal welcomed its first guests in May this year.
