Iconic Hotels – the concept
Iconic Hotels is based on a realisation that the needs of people seeking luxury 5 star hotels are not met by traditional online reservation agencies whose staff sell 10,000s of hotels and must therefore be generalists - and whose website pages are standardised for all hotels from 1 star to 5 star deluxe.
Iconic Hotels' staff are trained on the full inventory of rooms and suites, and guest services at each iconic 5 star hotel. Our staff know which hotels and room options best meet your specific needs; whether that is accommodating a family securely in inter-connecting rooms or suites, or meeting your business requirements for connectivity and access to business support facilities.
Our website, IconicHotels.co.uk, presents a mini-site for each hotel which includes comprehensive descriptions on every room and suite type, high resolution photography of all rooms and all facilities and exclusive video tours commissioned by Iconic Hotels of all rooms and public areas of each hotel. Iconic Hotels offers every room and suite type at each hotel with the best rate guaranteed.

After-sales service and 'Virtual Concierge':
Other online agencies will confirm your reservation via a digital feed, email or fax to the hotel. 9 times out of 10 this impersonal approach is fine. However due to technical and human error, there are occasions when this method leads to a guest arriving at a hotel that has no record of the reservation. Even the hotels themselves can make simple date and room errors in uploading reservations. This leads to a scenario that we appreciate, must be avoided at all costs. So Iconic Hotels has created a safety net. Every reservation is assigned a Reservation Manager who follows-up each reservation with personal contact with the hotel. We exchange written confirmation with the hotel to ensure and confirm that your reservation has been recorded correctly on the hotel's booking system.
Our Virtual Concierge service provides you with a toll-free telephone line for any assistance you require whilst at your destination. From theatre tickets to advice on restaurants, places to see or simply directions to a destination. As a guest of Iconic Hotels, no request is too much to ask. Simply call 0800 496 8888 (International: +44 1872 266 198).
