Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed the contract for a second Mövenpick hotel at Stuttgart airport.
The new-build hotel, located by the S-Bahn and the planned ICE airport station and tram terminal stop, is expected to open in spring 2019.
“Our existing hotel opened nine years ago and, overseen by Jürgen Köhler, general manager and director of operations Germany, is highly regarded as an excellent hotel choice in this important economic centre”, commented Ola Ivarsson, chief operating officer Europe.
“With this new project, we are proud to support all the stakeholders, not least Stinag, Stuttgart Invest AG and Flughafen Stuttgart, in their efforts to transform this first-class location into one of the most important hubs in Germany.
“The enhanced cooperation with a partner of Stinag’s calibre is an important step in the development of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in Europe,” Added Ivarsson.
The atrium-style hotel lobby will be a green oasis with an invitingly relaxing ambience.
Ulm architects Mühlich, Fink & Partner will design the exceptional 262-room on the site of a former airport administration building.
On the culinary front, the hotel will have a 150 seat restaurant and a bar with seating for 100 guests.
For events and conferences, the design incorporates a 740-square metre ballroom in addition to several meeting rooms.
When combined with the conference space at the Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport & Messe, just a short walk away, this will create the biggest meeting and event space in southern Germany, at almost 3,000 square metres.
“The new hotel will not only increase Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ profile in Germany, but also expand our European portfolio, which represents an important part of our corporate expansion strategy,” said Olivier Chavy, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ new chief executive.
There are currently eight Mövenpick hotels in Germany, three in the Netherlands, one in France, four in Turkey and five in Switzerland. Another hotel will also open in a premium location in Basel city centre in 2019.
