CONTEMPORARY DESIGN AND FINE ARTS FEATURED IN GUESTROOMS AND SUITES IN THE MANDARIN ORIENTAL, MUNICH
Munich, July 5, 2007 – After a redesign period of only three months, the 48 guest rooms, 25 suites and hotel corridors of Mandarin Oriental, Munich now shine in new splendor. Around 7.5 million EUR was spent to renovate the second to seventh floor and the renovation of the hotel's façade.
The highlights of the refurbishment are the exclusive Mandarin Suite (325 m2) and the Oriental Suite (70 m2), with a striking, contemporary Asian design that makes use of premium materials and technical refinements. The new hothouses of the 2 suites are especially noteworthy, because they were made through inclusion of the patios. Featring sliding-glass doors, they ensure a spacious, bright ambiance and a spectacular view of Munich’s attractions. Ancient Asiatic works of art that are thousands of years old and valued at 3.8 million EUR make these suites private museums.
The guestrooms have also received an Asiatic flair thanks to exotic plants, priceless artworks from Far East and Oriental decor that reflects the heritage of this luxurious hotel chain. An eternal and subtle interaction between the Oriental and the Occidental has also been made through the cherry wood furniture in the neo-Biedermeier fashion, featuring workdesks, chests of drawers and tables. The latest technology, including B&O flat-screen TV's with more than 500 programmes confirms the hotel's dedication to the guests' satisfaction.
Lars Wagner, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Munich, comments the refurbishment: “Very individualized and highly professional service combined with innovative technology, an exclusive ambience and the very highest quality materials ensure that our guests enjoy a memorable, comfortable stay including all the modern conveniences – a perfect blend of service and contemporary hospitality.”
The architect Ralf Clausen of CM Design says: “Our goal was to create a combination of a modern and high-quality design while at the same time copying of the art-deco forms to make a sensation of well-being in the midst of true artworks, that date back thousands of years.”
