Meliá Hotels International to open its third hotel in Italy

Meliá Hotels International has announced the addition of a five star hotel in Genoa (Italy) to its portfolio opening in September; this will become the third hotel operated by the company in the country. The company has signed a total of 11 hotels so far this year (an average of one every three weeks!) and continues to improve the positioning of its most well-known brand, Meliá Hotels & Resorts, in the city hotel market with the incorporation of this modern hotel in the centre of Genoa, with facilities in keeping with the brand’s new quality and service standards.

The Meliá Génova is located in Vía Corsica, the heart of the city within a historical building built in 1929 and was completely refurbished and converted into a luxury hotel, known until now as the “Bentley Hotel” (THI Collection).

Providing 99 elegant rooms, the hotel offers stunning service including a wonderful Presidential Suite measuring 80m2, whose privileged panoramic terrace with sea views and exterior Jacuzzi makes it one of the most exclusive experiences in the entire city.

An a la carte restaurant and a lounge bar provides the hotel with dining options noteworthy for their unique combination of traditional flavours from the Italian region of Liguria and their sensorial vanguard architecture. Guests at the Meliá Génova will be complemented by the Wellness Club, equipped with swimming pool, Turkish bath, whirlpool bath, tropical showers and fitness area as well as catering to the hotel’s business clients with spacious facilities for events and meetings, thanks to its congress room and two meeting rooms, all equipped with the latest technology.

Meliá Génova, which has been added to the Meliá Hotels International portfolio under a lease agreement, will open in September. Before the end of the year, the Spanish company will also open its second hotel in the Italian capital, The Gran Meliá Roma, a majestic project for the most exclusive hotel brand and one of the city’s most luxurious hotels.
