Building on the success of the Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport & Messe, Swiss company Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed a contract for another hotel located just 150 metres from the existing building.
The new hotel will be situated right by the S-Bahn and the planned ICE airport station and tram terminal stop.
“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”, comments 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 GmbH, 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.
Ulm architects Mühlich, Fink & Partner will design the exceptional 262-room on the site of a former airport administration building. Matteo Thun, the well-known South Tyrolean architect and designer responsible for the existing Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport & Messe, has been entrusted with the new hotel’s interior design, which will feature a green plant-filled oasis in the atrium-style lobby inviting guests to linger.
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.
On the culinary front, the hotel will have a 150 seat restaurant and a bar with seating for 100 guests.
“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”, says Olivier Chavy, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ new CEO.
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.
