Autograph Collection Hotels has revealed the latest addition to its portfolio with the reopening of Hotel Elephant Weimar following a nine-month full renovation.
Located in the city centre’s historical market square, the hotel has been a cultural hub for more than three centuries, known for its classic Art Deco and Bauhaus features.
The boutique Hotel Elephant Weimar offers 99 guest rooms, all of which have been redesigned to capture the spirit of the property’s artistic and architectural heritage.
Three elegant and spacious suites are named after art, literature and architectural luminaries that have previously stayed as guests, including Lyonel Feininger, Thomas Mann and Walter Gropius.
John Licence, vice president, premium and select brands, Europe, for Marriott International, said: “We are thrilled to reintroduce one of Germany’s most historic hotels, uniting its rich history with an exceptional renovation.
“Exactly like nothing else, this timeless hotel upholds Autograph Collection Hotels’ values of vision, design and craft.”
The unique design is a result of the creative collaboration of Bost Interior Design and DK Architekten, which draws upon 1920s elegance fused with an eclectic mix of iconic German structural design and modern flourishes.
Taking inspiration from Germany’s leading literary figure, Goethe and his Theory of Colours, the colour palette throughout the property consists of rich, natural tones of grey, blue and dark emerald.
While a thoughtfully curated collection of contemporary artwork adorns the hotel walls, the hotel is especially proud to be exhibiting works from leading German artists Georg Baselitz and Elvira Bach.
Celebrated for its artistic and cultural heritage, the historic hotel remains the ultimate hub for city explorers and is situated a stone’s throw from the very best that Weimar has to offer.
