The D Collection on the other hand has two boutique hotels in Hong Kong. Finally, Silka Hotels is the group’s value hotel brand with more attractive rates for the price-conscious traveler.
The Dorsett brand features a mix of upscale and mid-scale hotels. The former are designated as Dorsett Grand, and there are currently three such hotels – Dorsett Grand Chengdu, Dorsett Grand Labuan and Dorsett Grand Subang in Malaysia.
Are they for business travelers? The business-traveler-oriented services vary between the brands, mostly concentrated in the Dorsett brand.
