Bethesda-based Marriott International Inc. recently added three hotels to its curated luxury lifestyle brand, Autograph Collection Hotels.

The hotels are The Envoy in Boston, Mass.; Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook in Mountain Brook, Ala., and The Citizen in Sacramento, Calif.

There are now 93 hotels in the collection, which was launched in 2010 and is the company’s fastest growing brand. Marriott International says it selects each hotel for the brand for its distinction as a landmark, for its design or for its resort amenities.

“We are very pleased to welcome these three exceptional hotels to our rapidly growing portfolio,” said Julius Robinson, vice president of Autograph Collection Hotels, in a statement announcing the new hotels. “Each property embodies our mission to deliver unique and authentic hotel experiences.”

The Envoy is a newly constructed property located in the city’s Innovation District. The hotel’s 136 rooms are designed with handcrafted décor and floor-to-ceiling windows. It also has a 4,000 square-foot bar on its roof with a waterfront view.

Located outside of Birmingham, Ala., Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook is a 100-room boutique hotel with an art gallery and offers wine blending and tasting sessions, cooking classes and a rooftop restaurant and terrace.

The Citizen occupies Sacramento’s California Life Insurance Building, the city’s first skyscraper, which was built in 1925. No two of its guest rooms are alike. It has a 3,000 square-foot tented roof deck with city views.
