Prague Marriott Hotel Welcomes Guests Following Major Refurbishment
In addition to a significant increase in the number of rooms, Marriott also presents a completely new interior, a bar, a restaurant, a café and expanded conference facilities. The summer season is welcomed with a new pop-up "Secret Garden" terrace.
Guests at the Prague Marriott Hotel, which is now open for business, can look forward to a brand-new experience thanks to a major refurbishment of the premises and a wide range of additional offers. With new health and safety measures also introduced, visiting the new-look Prague Marriott is a unique experience for domestic and international travellers alike. The overall cost of the refurbishment reached approximately 25 million euros.
The Marriott’s refurbishment and expansion has added 123 new rooms and suites to the hotel, taking the total number up to 416. Many of the new rooms feature balconies and terraces allowing guests to enjoy views of the old town spires. The lobby area has meanwhile been completely transformed into a new ‘Great Room’ concept: a welcoming, open space where guests can relax, dine, work and meet. The entire refurbishment was inspired by elegant modern design, incorporating wooden floors, muted colours, and sleek, tasteful décor.
“We are thrilled to finally be able to welcome guests to our renovated and expanded hotel,” said William Boulton-Smith, General Manager of the Prague Marriott Hotel. “We have created a sophisticated, modern design across a range of spaces perfect for personal relaxation, work, and socialising. Whether guests are arriving from the Czech Republic or abroad, and whether they are staying for business or leisure, we are ready to accommodate their every need”.
The Marriott’s transformation also includes a new signature restaurant. The Artisan, a modern, sustainable Czech culinary experience using high-quality local produce and fresh seasonal ingredients including herbs grown in the restaurant’s own “urban cultivator” and an open plan “theatre kitchen”. The Artisan is run by Executive Chef David Rejhon, who has a wealth of experience from roles in prestigious establishments around the world. The Artisan’s Sunday brunches have already proved a hit, and they will soon be joined by special ‘Afternoon Teas’ in the traditional British style, served with an Artisanal twist.
The Marriott also features a new bar, serving some of the finest cocktails in the city, while the Corner café serves freshly brewed coffee, house-made cakes and healthy snacks, which can be enjoyed in the hotel’s outdoor seating areas. And to celebrate the arrival of summer, a ‘Secret Garden’ pop-up terrace has been introduced in a hidden courtyard of the hotel which is available for private hires and serves barbecue specials and summer drinks.
The new-look Marriott also features a renovated and expanded conference floor with 2,000 square metres of premium meeting space. Facilities include two ballrooms, the larger of which has capacity for up to 600 delegates, and a range of breakout rooms and boardrooms ideal for smaller meetings, incorporating copious natural daylight and modern technology. Outside, the pre-function area is perfect for anything from coffee breaks and lunches, to cocktail receptions and exhibitions.
“The Marriott is the perfect place for business meetings and gatherings of all sizes,” says William Boulton-Smith. “Our conference rooms and smaller meeting rooms provide pleasant, professional working environments, while spaces can also be fitted out for special occasions like weddings and social events.”
The refurbished and expanded Marriott’s new offer to guests is complemented by strict cleaning and hygiene standards using the latest technologies. The Marriott’s BonVoy app allows guests to make specific requests prior to arrival, choose their room, check-in electronically, and even access their rooms using mobile key technology, providing them with added comfort and peace of mind throughout their stay.
