Dolce International has changed its name to Dolce Hotels and Resorts. The name change reflects the breadth of services and amenities that will soon be offered to the company’s meetings, leisure and individual business-travel clients and guests.
In conjunction with Dolce’s name change is the approximately $100-million investment being made in capital improvements at several properties, including Dolce Valley Forge, King of Prussia, Pa.; Dolce Basking Ridge, Basking Ridge, N.J.; Dolce Chantilly, Chantilly, France; Dolce Frégate, Provence, France; and The H Hotel, Midland, Mich. Additionally, a new spa is being added at Dolce La Hulpe, in Brussels, and the spa at Dolce Sitges, outside of Barcelona, is being expanded.
Other planned hotel improvements include cyber-cafés at breakout locations, and updated business centres featuring a concierge overseeing groups’ needs.
