Portugal: Vignette Collection, IHG’s luxury and lifestyle brand, has added the Convent Square Lisbon hotel to the portfolio, marking the second property in Europe.
The 121-room hotel is housed in a former convent located in the Baixa neighbourhood of Lisbon.
It features an all-day dining restaurant Capitulo, outdoor courtyard with fire pits, and a wellness centre with a sauna, gym, and indoor plunge pool.
All Vignette Collection properties offer Memorable Rituals – an experience which connects guests with the hotel’s identity and local area. At Convent Square Lisbon, guests can infuse their own daily blend of tea which pays homage to Portugal’s heritage as the nation to bring tea to Europe.
The Means For Good initiative also encourages each hotel in the collection to partner with a chosen non-profit organisation. Convent Square Lisbon will join forces with Corações Com Coroa to support its campaign for the empowerment of women by funding housing and school materials for young girls and sponsoring women through a hospitality internship programme.
Tom Rowntree, VP of luxury and lifestyle brands at IHG Hotels & Resorts, said: “We are delighted to see Convent Square Lisbon, Vignette Collection join IHG’s ever-expanding luxury and lifestyle portfolio. Vignette Collection is unique – each property one-of-a-kind, with a distinct outlook and story to tell. The collection is united by a shared vision to harness travel’s ability to benefit people, place, and planet, and together, offers thoughtful venturers the opportunity to make positive change through authentically storied experiences.”
Vignette Collection is IHG’s first collection brand and aims to reach 100 properties in 10 years. Currently, there are six Vignette Collection hotels.
