The origin of Bristol Hotels around the world
It is said that there are approximately 200 hotels named Bristol world-wide. But what’s the story behind this famous name? There are many tales regarding the origin of the name Bristol. The most dominant version claims that Frederick Augustus Hervey is credited for the name.
The 8th Earl of Bristol and Bishop of Derry (1730-1803), toured continental Europe with his own cook and entourage. Word of the earl's lavish tastes spread, so one theory for the popularity of "Bristol" hotels is that the earl's name became synonymous with the finest accommodation and luxury living throughout Europe
