The beautifully renovated Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota opens

Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota
As hand-tooled wooden doors with wrought iron grillwork swing open to reveal shining parquet floors and fine woollen carpets, freshly polished panelling and majestic stone columns, a beloved local landmark begins a new chapter in a storied history: welcome to the new Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota.

“It’s an incredible day for Bogota as we welcome guests back to Casa Medina,” says General Manager Luis Argote, who leads a team of 140 hand-picked staff, including many familiar faces.  “Colombia is attracting a new generation of cultural explorers, and now Four Seasons sets a new standard in luxury hospitality with the first of two hotels in Bogota.”

The multi-lingual Four Seasons team is pleased to assist with itinerary planning for history buffs, art lovers, active families and romantic wanderers to discover the best of Bogota. The Hotel also introduces a new destination amid the city’s vibrant culinary scene with Castanyoles Raciones y Tapas, an open concept restaurant and tapas bar designed by Saul Sasson. Executive Chef Pablo Peñalosa is adding some spice to the menu of Spanish specialties, and Four Seasons veteran Chef de Cuisine Lucas Curcio offers dishes learned from his Spanish grandmother. 

In celebration of its grand opening, the Hotel is offering the Experience More package, which includes a USD 100 hotel credit, and, for more time to explore the city, the Stay Longer in a Suite – Third Night Free package.

The Celebrated Casa Medina, Now Brilliantly Restored and Updated
Sixty-two rooms and suites – no two alike – are reached via the original wooden staircase, which curves sensually past bright stained glass windows depicting songbirds, a favourite motif of original architect Santiago Medina Mejia. Medellin born and Paris educated, he built Casa Medina in 1946, carefully assembling reclaimed floors, columns, paneling and ironwork to create an exclusive enclave of apartments in this fashionable area of the city.  Recognised for its architectural heritage in 1984 and turned into a hotel in 1988, it soon became the chosen address for the city’s power elite to meet, and a home-away-from-home for an international who’s who from rock stars to industry leaders and heads of state. 

Now, with restoration by architect Milena Vargas and original architectural details enhanced with residential-style furnishings and a collection of traditional and contemporary artwork selected by designer Lauren Rottet – plus the addition of myriad conveniences for the modern traveller – Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota takes its place among the finest luxury hotels in the world.

Four Seasons Hotel Bogota, located a short distance from Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota in Zona T, the city’s stylish shopping and dining area, is set to open in early 2016.
