Park Plaza Hotels announces completion of 61-room extension to art’otel berlin city center westPark Plaza Hotels, owner and operator of upscale and lifestyle hotels, announces the completion of a 61-room extension to the existing four-star art’otel berlin city center west, increasing the total number of rooms to 152.
At the heart of the extension will be the 400 m2 lobby with a reception area, a reading and internet corner with free internet access, two conference rooms offering daylight and a brand new stylish bar with completion set for January 2012. A new fitness and wellness area with sauna and relaxation room is already available to guests.
The group currently has six art’otels in operation in Germany and Hungary with an artistic concept differentiating it from traditional hotels. Each hotel is a gallery in its own right showcasing a collection of original paintings, prints and photographs of a signature artist.
Boris Ivesha, President and CEO of Park Plaza Hotels, said: “Art is the cornerstone of the brand, which is designed to appeal to the art-savvy traveller. It is a brand that is clearly unique, having created a niche for itself in the hotel industry. We are set for further growth with flagship art’otel properties under development in key locations in the heart of Amsterdam and in the lively Hoxton area of London.”
art’otel berlin city center west opened its doors in 2002 and displays 153 signed works of the famous pop-artist Andy Warhol and 63 photographs of his lifelong friend Christopher Makos. Additional works for the extension have been carefully selected and purchased at auctions and galleries around the world to ensure the extension displays ample works from Warhol and Makos.
