A new brand in luxury hôtellerie
Unveiled in 2018, The Dedica Anthology is a collective of contemporary-minded hotels that occupy exceptional landmark buildings in key European cities.
There are currently seven hotels within The Dedica Anthology, each individually named to reinforce its unique personality and sense of place. They are: Palazzo Naiadi in Rome; Palazzo Matteotti in Milan; Grand Hotel dei Dogi in Venice; Palazzo Gaddi in Florence; New York Palace in Budapest; Carlo IV in Prague; and Hotel Plaza in Nice. Two associate properties come under the aegis of the brand: Hotel Bellini in Venice and New York Residence in Budapest.
About our brand
We believe that travelling is about living in the moment and allowing it to change us. This happens when we discover the wonderment of belonging, surrounded by the people who make the place, and a feeling that there is nowhere else we would rather be.
The Dedica Anthology is a collective of places where people want to be and return. It is a vibrant haven of world-class hospitality, an upbeat blend of details and rituals with a subtly Italian attitude. It is for discerning, curious, contemporary-minded travellers, for whom discovery is about people as well as places.
Underpinned by values of authenticity, curiosity and open-mindedness, The Dedica Anthology is the promise of curated, contemporary hôtellerie.
About our name
Our brand name is composed of two parts. The Italian word 'dedica' (deriving from the Latin 'dedicare': to dedicate) means to devote one's time to a particular purpose, or to assign a work of art in someone's honour. We draw from this our dedication to making a personal difference to a guest's experience, reflecting the sense of curation that is the intrinsic promise of the brand. 'Anthology' describes the collection of unique stories represented by each of our hotels and their guests.
Our company and CEO
A luxury hospitality brand that is also a champion for Italy, The Dedica Anthology is headquartered in Milan and led by the renowned hotelier Stephen Alden on behalf of its investors, Värde Partners and Deutsche Bank.
