ABOUT US

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts is a hotel brand made up of a vast community of men and women united by the same vision of travel and hospitality in France and worldwide.

OUR MANIFESTO

The more globalised and standardised the world becomes, the more we want to experience something authentic when we travel. Whether we’re stopping off for a few hours or a few days, for work or for pleasure, there’s nothing more exciting than chatting with locals and feeling the soul of a place.

At The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts, we believe that beyond every anonymous hotel there is a hotelier, beyond every city there is a neighbourhood vibe, and beyond every room there is service: the human touch. This is why each of us remains an independent hotelier and an artisan. We are as much of a movement as we are a brand.

Passion is what led each of us to build or invest in our hotel and choose this profession. Each of us offers one or several unique experiences. From luxury to budget hotels, the various categories all share the same commitment to quality and comfort, though each hotel approaches this in its own, personal way.

The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts are a new way of making the most of local life. A new way of experiencing a hotel with a more personal, authentic and human touch.

Our Values

Human

At The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts, we think that, in a world that is becoming more standardised all the time, the human touch is the only source of true authenticity, creating a real encounter with a place, a culture and other people. Each of our establishments is headed by an independent hotelier with his own unique story and who is passionate about what he does.

Our Values

Local

At The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts, we think that each individual and each location offers something unique to discover, to experience and to share. Each of our hoteliers is a perfect ambassador for local life.

Our Values

Experience

At The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts, all of our hoteliers have something unique to share: a recipe, a moment, a passion, a history. It is this diversity of unique experiences that makes each stay more authentic, human and memorable.

Our Values

Independence

At The Originals, Human Hotels & Resorts, each hotelier remains independent with his own style, character and qualities. Most have created their hotels from scratch or invested in a unique place and are not about to give up on that uniqueness or on the independence that expresses their personality so well.
