Societe Des Grands Hotels Du Liban S.A.L (SGHL) is a hotel company that owns the Phoenicia and Le Vendome in Beirut.

SGHL was formed in 1954 to realise the dream of the late Najib Salha to build a world class hotel on the shores of the Mediterranean in Beirut.

The world famous American architect Edward Durell Stone was commissioned and the Phoenicia first opened its doors in 1961.
In a very short time the Phoenicia became the "Grande Dame" of Lebanon, and one of the most celebrated hotels in the region. Its reputation for class and luxurious living echoed around the globe.

In 1967 the second tower was completed adding another 300 rooms taking the total number of rooms to 600.
In 1974 Le Vendome was acquired as a sister hotel to the Phoenicia.
After the war both hotels were refurbished with Le Vendome reopening in 1996 and the Phoenicia in 2000.

Today both hotels represent prime real estate in Beirut sitting on land of approximately 12,000m2 and built up area of approximately 100,000m2.
