COUNTY WICKLOW, IRELAND—The Autograph Collection recently debuted the Powerscourt Hotel located here, representing the first Autograph Collection hotel in Ireland.
Earlier this year, Autograph Collection announced its continued growth in Europe with the inauguration of the St. Ermin's Hotel and Threadneedles in the heart of London, and The Glasshouse in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Powerscourt Hotel will expand the collection of independent lifestyle hotels to include nearly 50 locations in the United States, Asia, Europe, Caribbean and South America.
The Powerscourt Hotel is set near the village of Enniskerry, only 25 minutes from Dublin City. The hotel showcases Palladian-style architecture and offers guests a host of amenities including a 20-meter Swarovski crystal-lit indoor pool. Additionally, the hotel features two golf courses and a 30,000-sq.-ft. luxury spa by ESPA.
The Powerscourt Hotel is owned by Brehon Capital Partners and Midwest Holding and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, a U.S.-based global hotel management company.
"This is an incredibly exciting time for the Autograph Collection in Europe, and a significant event for us in Ireland," stated Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe. "Our European portfolio of Autograph Collection hotels offer travelers an enviable range of artistic, culinary and cultural adventures and this magnificent hotel is a hugely powerful addition."
The Autograph Collection is Marriott International’s exclusive portfolio of upscale, independent hotels.

In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
