History of Four Seasons
The first Four Seasons Hotel was opened in 1961 by Isadore Sharp, a young Canadian architect who believed in only operating medium-sized hotels of exceptional quality with an objective to be the best. As Isadore expanded the Company into what soon became one of the world’s leading luxury hospitality brands, he never lost sight of his guiding principle of The Golden Rule – the simple idea that we should treat others the way we would want to be treated. "The reason for our success is no secret. It’s The Golden Rule – the simple idea that we should treat others the way we would want to be treated." - Isadore Sharp, Founder and Chairman
The Golden Rule
Four Seasons guiding principle is The Golden Rule. Our people live each day with deep empathy, and always treat others the way they wish to be treated themselves. Our commitment to The Golden Rule comes to life through how we treat our guests, residents, partners, the communities, and environment around us, and of course, how we treat each other.
