prop­er­ties in 12 coun­tries. Her ho­tels have in­cluded the Lanes­bor­ough — Rose­wood’s first ho­tel — in Lon­don, the Car­lyle in New York City and the Rem­ing­ton in Hous­ton. There also are the Ca­neel Bay and Lit­tle Dix Bay re­sorts in the U.S. Vir­gin Is­lands, as well as other trop­i­cal re­sorts on Caribbean is­lands. In Hawaii, Caro­line’s Ho­tel Hana-Maui is a pop­u­lar place to re­lax.

Caro­line’s style for the de­sign of ho­tel in­te­ri­ors has al­ways been one of mix­ing styles. Think Coro­man­del screens and mar­ble floors in some prop­er­ties, and in oth­ers, French fur­nish­ings paired with rich col­ored silks and bro­cades. Caro­line al­ways se­lected fab­rics for ho­tel rooms and for lob­bies with the same care that she would select fab­rics for her own dresses.

On a Caribbean hol­i­day, she’ll wear happy is­land col­ors, with cot­tons, linens and prints that look like they be­long in a trop­i­cal par­adise — and her is­land ho­tels take the same ap­proach. For her more stylish city prop­er­ties, you might find sil­ver and gold in hand­some bro­cades along with richly toned satins and braided trims — a proper way to dress a ho­tel lobby or your­self for a night out on the town.
