Since it was founded in the late 1980s, JJW Hotels has built a strong portfolio of luxury hotels in prime locations such as London, Edinburgh, Leeds, Paris, Cote d’Azur, Vienna, The Algarve and in the Middle East, Cairo. Today’s acquisition by JJW is another move towards expanding the luxury and boutique hotels in the UK and complements recent acquisitions in Europe such as the Palais Schwarzenberg in Vienna. This historic property with its royal connections now sits alongside JJW’s renowned 'Grand Hotel Wien' also in Vienna, the Scotsman Group comprising The Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh, 42 The Calls in Leeds, and La Tremoille in Paris’ golden triangle’. Also in Paris’ 8th arrondissement are JJW’s luxury Hotels Balzac and De Vigny.
