JW Marriott Hotel Changsha debuts in China’s cultural hub

May 26 2022 –

JW Marriott has expanded in China with the opening of JW Marriott Hotel Changsha. Owned by Jianhongda Industrial Group of Hunan, the first JW Marriott property in Hunan province welcomes luxury travellers to an urban oasis with meaningful design, warm service, and a holistic approach to well-being, allowing them to take in the moment and be fully immersed in Changsha.

JW Marriott Hotel Changsha

“We are thrilled to mark the opening of JW Marriott Hotel Changsha as part of our strategic brand expansion across key cities in central China,” said Bruce Rohr, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, JW Marriott. “For discerning guests, JW Marriott creates immersive experiences through thoughtful design, impeccable service and a commitment to restorative travel and holistic wellbeing.”

The new JW Marriott Hotel Changsha is located in one of the city’s upscale neighborhoods and main thoroughfares, close to commercial, retail and attractions such as Xiang River and Orange Island. The nearest metro station is a five-minute walk away, making the rest of the city and surrounding regions easily accessible from the hotel. Changsha Huanghua International Airport and Changsha South Railway Station are approximately a half hour’s drive.

Designed by HBA Singapore, the hotel’s interior integrates the traditional aesthetics of the region with high-end modern touches. From the arrival lobby, guests are transported by lift to the 35th-floor Sky Lobby, which celebrates elements from Changsha’s historic architecture with soothing natural palettes and a quiet design language that finds expression in simple architectural lines.

JW Marriott Hotel Changsha features 287 guest rooms, including 14 suites with floor-to-ceiling windows that infuse the spaces with natural light and offer spectacular views of the historic Xiang River and the skyline of Changsha. Color palettes in the guest rooms echo the natural hues of the Sky Lobby. Pieces of original art recall the intriguing heritage and culture of Changsha, such as abstract paintings in shades of copper and royal blue that evoke the bold brush strokes of Chinese calligraphy from the 1,000-year-old Yuelu Academy, one of China’s most prestigious institutions of higher learning. All guest rooms offer the residential comforts of home, with thoughtful amenities such as the latest smart in-room technology, LCD HD TVs and sound insulation systems.

Throughout the hotel, guests are encouraged to celebrate being in the present and focus on experiencing the benefits of a holistic approach to living. The brand’s signature JW Garden grows fresh herbs and vegetables such as mint, rosemary, chili, and cherry tomato, all of which are showcased across the hotel’s menus. The brand’s Family by JW™ program welcomes families traveling with children with a dedicated kids’ area and kids’ menu, enabling generations to reconnect over shared fun and meaningful experiences. On the 33rd floor, guests can access a haven of wellness, comprising a 24-hour Fitness Center, an indoor heated pool with floor-to-ceiling windows, and the hotel’s dedicated spa with an extensive menu of treatments designed to promote blissful relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind and spirit.

The hotel offers dedicated venues for memorable weddings as well as other social and business gatherings, including a 650-square-meter pillar-free Grand Ballroom that accommodates more than 500 guests. The Grand Ballroom features a 64-square-meter LED screen, as well as an additional 229-square-meter exclusive foyer for receptions and event breakouts. A smaller ballroom, the Sixth Capital Junior Ballroom, with simulated soft natural lighting, is ideal for smaller events. A separate VIP room and five multi-functional Meeting Rooms featuring integrated conferencing technologies offer a highly customizable selection of venues for different events.

“As the first JW Marriott hotel in Hunan province, it is our privilege to welcome guests to experience the JW Marriott brand’s principles of mindfulness,” said Doug Ariza, General Manager, JW Marriott Hotel Changsha. “We are committed to providing our guests a destination for them to be present in mind, nourished in body and revitalized in spirit by offering purposeful programs and genuine service.”

The spirited cities of Milan and Naples have long been a destination of choice for global jetsetters, and we’re delighted to answer to the growing demand for luxury lifestyle hotels with these two significant signings,” said Gianleo Bosticco, Senior Director Development, Italy, Marriott International.

W Hotels Check into Italy’s Fashion Capital
W Milan – Duomo will bring the brand’s magnetic energy and distinctive design to the heart of Milan’s Fashion District. Situated in a prime location, W Milan – Duomo will be within walking distance of the city’s cultural landmarks including Piazza del Duomo, Teatro alla Scala and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Milan’s vibrant and iconic shopping street, Via Montenapoleone, is just a three-minute walk from the hotel.

First built as a bank in the 1920s, W Milan – Duomo will blend Milan’s classic grandeur with W’s bold branding and innovative programming. Led by Milan-based architects Stefano Boeri Architetti and international design firm Yabu Pushelberg, the hotel is expected to feature 166 guestrooms and 36 suites, including an Extreme WOW Suite.

Design plans for the hotel’s rooftop include the brand’s signature WET deck, offering spectacular views of the Duomo di Milano. The vistas continue with plans for an exclusive rooftop bar, W Lounge, and a signature restaurant; all complete with outdoor terraces and positioned to offer panoramic views of the city and the perfect aperitivo.

W Naples is set to become a buzzing centerpiece in the heart of the historical Piazza del Municipio square. The charming building, also formerly a bank, will receive a multi-million-pound renovation, with the historic façade remaining untouched playing homage to its historic past.

Old-world charm meets W Hotels’ unexpected design and innovative programming as the hotel is expected to serve as the perfect gateway to discover Naples by foot. Guests will find themselves immersed in the heart of the locally charged cultural scene with the hotel’s location just steps from the ancient Via Toledo known as the shopping street of Naples, the famed glass domed Galleria Umberto I and the prestigious UNESCO-listed, Teatro San Carlo, which is one of the oldest opera houses in the world.

W Naples will also be within walking distance of Molo Beverello Port where guests can dine al fresco with seafront views, or take a day trip to nearby Rome, Capri, Positano, or Pompei.

W Naples is set to bring together noble grandeur, culinary delicacies and couture fashion. The hotel is expected to feature 78 guestrooms, including 17 suites, several of which offer private terraces. The interior transformation will be headed up by the acclaimed Rockwell Group and design plans include a signature restaurant, W Lounge and FIT fitness center.

“We are so proud to have the W brand come to Naples. The hotel will provide a new social hub for locals and tourists alike when visiting wonderful Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.” said Mr. Manuel d’Avanzo head of development of Solido S.p.A Group.

This announcement reaffirms the growth of W Hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, where the brand currently operates 14 properties and residences, with new openings planned across the region in exciting destinations such as, Portugal, Greece, Scotland and Czech Republic.

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Novena

May 24, 2022 –  Hotel giant expands country portfolio to 14 hotels across seven brands

IHG Hotels & Resorts and partner Marlow Hotels & Resorts today announce the signing of Holiday Inn Express  Singapore Novena.

With four Holiday Inn Express properties in Clarke Quay, Katong, Orchard Road and Serangoon, this will be the fifth property under the brand in Singapore, expanding IHG’s portfolio to 14 hotels across seven brands.

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Novena

Scheduled to open in 2023, the hotel will be rebranded from the former Quality Hotel Marlow. Currently closed, the property will undergo an extensive renovation that will commence this year to introduce Holiday Inn Express’ clean, consistent and comfortable stay experience to business and leisure travellers.

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Novena will have 231 rooms including 34 suites specifically catered to families, extended stay guests and large groups.

Facilities at the hotel include flexible meeting spaces of more than 500 square metres, a gym, swimming pool and self-service laundry. The Express Café & Bar, an integrated lobby and food and beverage experience, will be the first of its kind in the region and the perfect setting for guests seeking a place to work, relax or recharge.

Holiday Inn Express Suites Singapore Novena will join more than 3,000 Holiday Inn Express hotels globally and more than 650 in the pipeline. Within South East Asia, the brand recently welcomed Holiday Inn Express & Suites Johor Bahru, and will introduce Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites properties in Phuket, Penang and Vientiane within the next few years.

Marlow Hotels & Resorts spokesperson said: “We made the decision to convert and upgrade our hotel to Holiday Inn Express & Suites Singapore Novena because we believe the brand’s positioning of providing simple, smart travel is ideal for meeting the changing needs of our guests.

“As borders reopen, we know that travellers will be looking for comfortable, fuss-free stays. The brand’s ‘rest-and-go’ concept is perfect for the Novena area, a commercial and medical hub which is also home to historical sites and local eateries, and will appeal to corporate, medical and leisure travellers to the vicinity.

“We have a strong relationship with IHG having had a successful partnership in Australia, and are confident our new hotel will benefit from the global appeal of the Holiday Inn Express brand and the power of the IHG system and its loyalty programme.”

Serena Lim, Vice President, Development, South East Asia and Korea, IHG commented: “It is fantastic to work with Marlow Hotels & Resorts on our second property together and we thank them for their continued trust in IHG. We are accelerating our growth in Singapore, having opened Holiday Inn Singapore Little India and voco Orchard Singapore in the past year. This agreement takes us to 14 hotels in the country, covering a wide portfolio of brands that appeal to all types of travellers.

“It’s another great example of the appetite of owners to join the IHG family as the strength, resilience and attractiveness of our brands continue to shine through as the industry recovers from the pandemic.

“The Holiday Inn Express brand celebrated its 30th anniversary last year and accounts for more than a third of IHG’s global pipeline. Its simple and smart travel experience provides an avenue for that warm in-person connection that has been so missed over the past two years. We look forward to increasing its brand presence across all of our markets in the region.” We welcome the Holiday Inn Express Singapore Novena.

Elizabeth line opens today in London – new railway stops at 41 stations – 10 of them new –

Singapore joins the Global Destination Sustainability-Index

Elizabeth line opens today

May 24, 2022-  when fully open – add around 10% more capacity to central London’s rail network as well as an estimated £42bn to the UK economy.

High-frequency services connecting to more places – for many the new railway means shorter journey times between popular destinations in the Capital. The travel experience is more comfortable on the spacious trains and in the new and newly refurbished stations.

Opening stage

The Elizabeth line is initially operating as three separate railways – services from Reading, Heathrow and Shenfield will connect with the central tunnels from autumn this year. When the final stage is complete, customers will be able to travel seamlessly from Abbey Wood to Heathrow and Reading, and from Shenfield to Heathrow.

From 24 May 2022 (subject to final safety approvals)

  • Services running as TfL Rail were rebranded as the Elizabeth line
  • The central section opened, adding nine new stations to the TfL network (Bond Street will open to Elizabeth line customers later in 2022)
  • Service starts with 12 trains an hour (a train every 5 minutes) running between Paddington and Abbey Wood from 06:30-23:00, Monday to Saturday.

Work will continue outside those hours, on Sundays (except for the weekend of the Platinum Jubilee, Sunday 5 June 2022) and select full weekends to allow for any testing and software updates. By doing so, we can bring forward the next phase of the Elizabeth line to this autumn. The number of trains running through the central area and direct journeys from the east and west is expected to nearly double in autumn 2022.

The line operates in London as three separate railways, in the east, west and through central London. Elizabeth line customers travelling between:

  • Shenfield and the central section of the route will need to change trains at Liverpool Street, walking to/from the new Elizabeth line Liverpool Street station
  • Reading or Heathrow and the central section will need to change trains at Paddington, walking to/from the new Paddington Elizabeth line station
  • Paddington and Abbey Wood only – no changes needed

    From autumn 2022

    The lines from Reading, Heathrow and Shenfield will connect with the central tunnels. This means customers travelling:

    • From Reading and Heathrow can travel east all the way to Abbey Wood without changing at Paddington
    • From Shenfield can travel west all the way to Paddington without changing at Liverpool Street

    By May 2023

    • The separate sections of Elizabeth line are fully connected and services run to the final timetable
    • 24 trains an hour will run at the busiest times between Paddington and Whitechapel.

Grand Hotel Brioni Pula Croatia- more than 30 million it cost to reposition the legendary Hotel Brion

Grand Hotel Brioni Pula

Grand Hotel Brioni Pula

May 24, 2022 – First Radisson Collection hotel on the Adriatic coast opens in Pula, Croatia

Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the debut of its luxury lifestyle Radisson Collection brand in Croatia, with the opening of Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel. This follows an extensive £30 million repositioning of the legendary Hotel Brioni, one of Croatia’s best-known hotels, by Radisson Hotel Group’s partner PPHE Hotel Group and its Croatian subsidiary Arena Hospitality Group.

Grand Hotel Brioni Pula

Pula is home to Istria’s main international airport and serves many holidaymakers each year as the starting point for their travels. It is a popular leisure destination steeped in Roman history, and provides easy access to the most historic sites, pristine nature and an outstanding coastline. The Grand Hotel Brioni Pula occupies a dramatic cliff-side location on the Adriatic, overlooking the Brijuni islands, which were the inspiration for the hotel’s name. It offers 227 rooms, infinity swimming pools, multiple restaurants and bars and sumptuous health and wellness facilities.

Originally built in the 1970s, the hotel was one of the most prominent tourist meccas in former Yugoslavia. In its heydays, with direct flights from the United States to Pula in the 70s, it was often a getaway for many celebrities, including artists, film stars and politicians. The 14 islets of Brijuni are the epitome of tranquility and exclusivity.

The interiors, designed by Studio 92 have the “wow” factor and will take your breath away. Throughout, the hotel features art by renowned Croatian artists, connecting the heritage of this iconic hotel with the modernity of today, and taking in the striking colors of the surrounding area. The interior design is enriched with Mediterranean materials and colors with Italian and Croatian stone including Botticino Classico, Grigio Amani, Kirmenjak and Kanfanar.

 

Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel features several restaurants and bars. With the freshness of ingredients at the heart of local Mediterranean cuisine, and paying significant attention to quality and provenance, all ingredients are sourced locally from trusted producers and artisans selected by our talented team of chefs.

Mandarin Oriental Mayfair set for winter opening

May 23, 2022 –

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is expanding its presence in London with the opening of Mandarin Oriental Mayfair, London this winter. Sitting on historic Hanover Square, in the heart of London’s most stylish neighbourhoods, where fashion, media, art, and business intersect, the new property is a discreet, sleek and intimate sister property to the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.

Mandarin Oriental Mayfair

The property comprises 50 guestrooms and 78 private residences, offering hotel guests and residents an oasis of calm and Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service alongside a vibrant atmosphere in the public spaces. It will house the first namesake Akira Back restaurant in the UK from Michelin Star award winning Chef Akira Back, as well as his ‘ABar Lounge’ concept.  There will also be an urban spa, focussed on renewal and recalibration.

“We are incredibly excited to open a Mandarin Oriental hotel in the heart of such an iconic location. Mayfair has such a rich history and pedigree within luxury, fashion and art and is continually evolving. This is a wonderful parallel for our new property, which will introduce delightful touches for which Mandarin Oriental is loved, but in a more intimate and informal setting. We feel that our warm, club-like atmosphere, which flows throughout the hotel, is set to make Mandarin Oriental Mayfair a new destination of choice in the area,” says Susanne Hatje who joins as General Manager direct from the iconic Mandarin Oriental, New York.

Design and Interiors
Designed by internationally renowned Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (the talent behind the Lloyd’s building and the ‘Cheesegrater’ in London, as well as the Pompidou Centre in Paris), the building’s design has a rich historic context, given its location on the corner of Mayfair’s oldest square.

A strong sense of place has inspired the interior design of the hotel’s public spaces, created by Tokyo based studio, Curiosity, who have based their concept on ‘a hub of nature and art’. As an homage to the hotel’s cultural and creative neighbours, artworks by local British artists feature throughout the hotel with one-off furniture pieces curated by Curiosity’s founder, Gwenael Nicolas.

Restaurants & Bars
Chef Akira Back makes his UK debut at Mandarin Oriental Mayfair. Born in Korea and raised in Aspen, Colorado, Michelin Star award winning Chef Akira Back brings a sense of adventure and boundless creativity to his culinary creations. The Akira Back brand is a diverse portfolio of over 20 restaurants and lounges around the globe which pride themselves on creating innovative culinary experiences combined with a social atmosphere and elegant ambiance. The mission statement is to make unforgettable memories for guests by revolutionizing the dining experience through one-of-a-kind dishes and gracious service.

Wellness
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Mayfair, will provide the perfect antidote to the fast pace of London life for hotel guests, residents and the local community, offering sublime serenity in the heart of Mayfair. The overall spa features an indoor 25-metre swimming pool, sauna, vitality pool, relaxation room and a myriad of bespoke wellness treatments that abound in a Mandarin Oriental spa.

Kimpton Hua Hin Resort Thailand opens in 2024 with 124 rooms

Kimpton Hua Hin Resort

Kimpton Hua Hin Resort

May 23, 2022 – The Kimpton Hua Hin Resort boutique luxury brand’s success story continues in partnership with AWC

Thailand – 23 May 2022: IHG Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading hospitality companies, is honoured to announce the signing of Kimpton Hua Hin Resort in collaboration with long-standing partner Asset World Corporation, Thailand’s leading integrated lifestyle real-estate group.

Opening in 2024, the 124-room resort will be the fourth Kimpton hotel in the Kingdom. Part of IHG’s Luxury & Lifestyle portfolio, the Kimpton brand’s popularity and growth in Thailand has accelerated at pace since its debut in Bangkok in 2020, thanks to its heartfelt service, boldly playful design and award-winning dining offers.

Kimpton Hua Hin Resort

The agreement is part of a long-term strategic partnership between IHG and AWC to jointly manage a portfolio of properties across Thailand featuring more than 1,200 rooms which includes the highly anticipated 302-room InterContinental Chiang Mai Mae Ping which will open this year. The announcement follows last year’s triple signing which included two hotels in Bangkok’s Chinatown – InterContinental Bangkok Chinatown and Vignette Collection Bangkok Chinatown, as well as Aquatique Pattaya, which is also part of IHG’s Vignette Collection.

A full renovation will see Kimpton Hua Hin Resort transformed from the former Imperial Hua Hin which closed in May 2019. Located on an idyllic beachfront, it will offer guests the choice of four restaurants & bars, a swimming pool, fitness centre, spa and meeting spaces.

Serena Lim, Vice President, Development, South East Asia and Korea, IHG said: “We’re delighted to partner with AWC to bring our joint vision for Kimpton Hua Hin Resort to life. As the fourth Kimpton hotel to be signed in Thailand – following Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, Kimpton Kitalay Samui and Kimpton Khao Yai – the resort will further strengthen the brand’s positioning in Thailand and around the world, and establish it as a hotel of choice for travellers seeking one-of-a-kind experiences.

“IHG has 30 hotels in Thailand and more than 30 in the pipeline, and we are proud to continue working with AWC to grow sustainably – together – over the next few years. As travel returns, we know there are great opportunities for us throughout the country.

“Our recent IHG search data shows Hua Hin in the top 10 searched destinations in the region for international travellers. We look forward to Kimpton Hua Hin Resort quickly becoming a great success, and can’t wait to welcome both domestic and international guests through its doors in 2024.”

Wallapa Traisorat, Chief Executive Officer and President, Asset World Corporation (Plc), AWC added: “AWC is confident that Thailand’s tourism industry has a strong long-term future, so we will continue to strengthen Thailand as one of the world’s most attractive destinations. The expansion of our cooperation with IHG further diversifies our hospitality portfolio and allows us to deliver even more impressive experiences while meeting a wider array of customer demands after Thailand reopens.

“Kimpton is an exciting brand offering thoughtful design and world class restaurants & bars. It will be a great brand to introduce to Hua Hin and elevate this lifestyle destination further. We’re confident that together with a global partner like IHG Hotels & Resorts, we will continue to lift the benchmark of Thailand’s tourism industry and bring new distinctive experiences across Thailand for both domestic and international guests.”

Hua Hin has been the seaside resort destination of choice for Thai royalty for almost a century and is well-established as a cosmopolitan weekend getaway destination for local residents. It is also popular with second-home investors seeking a stylish and scenic retreat away from the city, making it an ideal location for the design-led and distinctive Kimpton brand.

A two-and-a-half hour drive from Bangkok and just ten minutes from Hua Hin Airport, the destination of Hua Hin is famed for its white sandy beaches, picturesque golf courses and nearby Kaeng Krachan national park, the largest national park in Thailand featuring waterfalls, caves and hiking trails.

Thailand continues to be a strong growth market for IHG, and the signing of Kimpton Hua Hin Resort is the latest move by the company to grow its Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio in Thailand by 50%, as well as double its estate across all of its brands, in the country by 2026.

The Kimpton brand’s global expansion continues to move at pace, with 75 open hotels* and a 38-strong pipeline that will see it surpass more than 100 properties worldwide. In 2022, the opening of Kimpton Kitalay Samui in Thailand and Kimpton Margot Sydney in Australia further added to the brand’s growing presence in prime leisure destinations with Kimpton Naranta Bali opening soon.

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

Like many historic locales found throughout the Silver State, some of Nevada’s oldest history traces back to areas early explorers and pioneers were drawn to. In the scorching Mojave Desert heat, many pioneers were not drawn to the Spring Mountains for their spectacular scenery or even shady valleys, but for the water supply. The uncharacteristic bevy of natural cold springs in the area are what initially drew people to the picturesque valley in the 1830s, and interestingly enough, continue to do so to this day. 

This lush oasis proved invaluable to exhausted pioneers forging West, following the Spanish Trail. This heavily-depended-upon pioneer stopover proved to be a reliable place to rest and stock up on supplies required for the remainder of their journey West.

By the 1870s, the area had attracted James Wilson and George Anderson, who had recently acquired a large amount of funds after their working ranch was purchased by a former business partner. With deep pockets and serious ambition, Wilson and Anderson took over the property, maintaining the two existing buildings and land. Additionally, James’ wife Annie and her two sons James Jr. and George Jr. occupied the land and expanded the existing cabin on-site during the 1870s. Tragedy struck in the early 1880s when Annie mysteriously vanished and was never seen or heard from again. James also dies in 1906, passing the ranch onto James Jr. and George Jr., who eventually sold the ranch in 1929.

 Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

The next owner of the ranch—Williard George—had even mightier dreams when getting hold of this iconic property. As a big-time fur coat maker for the Hollywood elite, George had plans to purchase the Spring Mountain Ranch and turn it into a chinchilla ranch to support his business. Though not difficult to predict, his grand idea eventually failed and the ranch turned hands again, this time to radio-turned-movie star Chet Lauck.

When the Wilson family originally got hold of the property in the 1870s, the blacksmith shop and original expanded cabin were the only structures on-site, rivaling some of the oldest buildings in the state of Nevada. When Chet Lauck moved on-site, he constructed the main house in 1948, which serves as State Park Headquarters for the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area today. By the 1950s, Spring Mountain Ranch commanded the attention of Hollywood stars—both foreign and domestic—due to its alluring remoteness and exotic beauty.

German movie star Vera Krupp honed in on Spring Mountain Ranch State Park property in 1955, after divorcing from coffee guru Alfred Krupp in Germany. With a brand new, immaculately constructed mansion on her hands, Vera was in heaven. Here, she spent her days rockhounding, hosting parties, ranching with the boys, and living life to the fullest in the Spring Mountains until she fell ill and needed to relocate to be closer to adequate medical care. Despite a serious personal interest in selling the property to the Nevada State Parks system in order to preserve the property, Howard Hughes snapped up the Spring Mountain Ranch in 1967.

Visiting Spring Mountain Ranch State Park Today 

Skip the crowds at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and head for Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, which offers the same experiences without thousands of people. With six babbling springs on the property, Spring Mountain Ranch State Park owns all the water rites, and that alone is worth more than all 520 acres of land and all the buildings put together. Crazy, right? Be sure to take notice of the natural amount of water on the property, which is what makes such a deliciously manicured lawn possible for your enjoyment. Think about it: a lawn in the middle of the Mojave Desert? Not exactly something most people living or visiting in the region can enjoy—at Spring Mountain Ranch, this is arguably the largest, though simplest, attraction. 

Reserve a large amphitheater-style area that is equipped to host 200 people, discover amazing hiking loops throughout the park (complete with charming picnic areas with featuring shade, barbecues and tables) and be sure to swing through the historic Main Ranch House for an even more detailed glimpse of the owners who once lived here. Ask about Living History Programs, Summer Theater, and special events like “Yoga on the Lawn” or “Paint with a Ranger” offered throughout the year.

Andaz Condesa Hotel Mexico City opens its doors

May 20, 2022 – Hyatt Announces Plans for First Andaz Condesa Hotel Mexico City

213-room Andaz Condesa Mexico City will mark the second luxury Andaz property in Mexico, representing Hyatt’s continued growth of its luxury lifestyle portfolio in Latin America

 Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Grupo Murano for a new luxury lifestyle hotel, Andaz Condesa Mexico City, to be located in Mexico City’s Condesa neighborhood.

Andaz hotels enable guests to go beyond the familiar and satiate their curiosity about the world and local cultures through immersive experiences that capture the essence of the surrounding destination.

Andaz Condesa Mexico City will occupy the tallest building in the I421 mixed-use complex.

Guests will quickly become immersed in the architecturally significant, creative community nestled amongst art nouveau mansions, sidewalk cafes, and international bistros.

Additionally, Andaz Condesa Mexico City will offer one of the city’s tallest rooftop pools with brilliant views of the city’s historic landmarks.

Andaz Condesa Hotel Mexico City: “We are delighted to bring the Andaz experience to I421 and it is an honor to announce this project,” said Owner and COO of Grupo Murano, Marcos Sacal. “Andaz Condesa Mexico City will fit in perfectly with the spirit of I421 as the project is expected to provide signature touchpoints designed to elevate the senses through meaningful and regionally distinctive guest offerings for today’s luxury and lifestyle traveller seeking to immerse themselves in Mexico´s culture.

The hotel will add to Hyatt’s existing portfolio of properties in Mexico City, including Hyatt Regency Mexico City and Hyatt House Mexico City/Santa Fe.
