CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a contract with a family-owned company based in Munich for an Andaz hotel in Munich. The first Andaz-branded hotel in Germany, Andaz Munich will join hotels currently located in London, New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, and soon, Tokyo. The Munich property is expected to open in 2017.
The 274-room hotel will be developed in central Munich in a cultural district known as Schwabinger Tor. Situated between Leopoldstrasse and Berlinerstrasse, Andaz Munich will be part of a mixed use site, which will include newly constructed upscale residential apartments, retail shops, offices, theaters, and restaurants.
Andaz Munich will offer 234 guestrooms, 36 junior suites, three executive suites, and a presidential suite. The hotel will also feature an all-day dining restaurant, a lounge and rooftop bar, as well as an extensive fitness center with spa and pool facilities. Conference facilities will include a ballroom, seven conference rooms, and pre-function space.
“We are eager to expand the Andaz brand presence in Europe, and especially in Germany,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president of acquisitions and development—Europe, Africa, and Middle East for Hyatt. “Andaz Munich will bring to life the brand’s mission of creating inspiring, indigenous experiences and immersing guests into the destination’s local culture with an array of unique activities.”
Andaz Munich will collaborate with local artists, musicians, designers, and other cultural influencers to deliver events and programs on themes unique to its location in central Munich. The Andaz Salon, the brand’s signature cultural program, features interactive, on-property, and virtual events conceived to support and nurture each hotel’s community of emerging talent.
