Marriott International has opened the first property under its Renaissance brand in Poland, with the unveiling of the Renaissance Warsaw Airport Hotel.
The 225-room property is situated opposite the airport (or as the hotel’s website boasts “37 seconds or 67 steps” from the terminal doors), and close to the existing Courtyard by Marriott Warsaw Chopin Airport.
There are 225 rooms and suites featuring graphic art by the Polish Poster Gallery, while the hotel’s design has been inspired by the avant-garde modernism of the 1930s, 1960s and today, with “modern pops of primary colours in its art, textiles and furniture, inspired by the fashion, graphic design and pop culture of the time”.
Service innovations include a lobby area ‘Discovery Table’ staffed by ‘Navigators’ to assist guests with handpicked experiences, and nightly ‘Renaissance Bar Rituals’ social events.
Facilities include a signature restaurant offering “local Polish cuisine with a modern twist”, a swimming pool, fitness and events space with seven meeting rooms and a main ballroom.
Marriott is set to open 16 Renaissance properties over the next 12 months, and has highlighted its aim to “revamp the staid airport hotel experience”, with a forthcoming property at Amsterdam Schiphol, and the opening last year of the Renaissance Atlanta Gateway Hotel.
Commenting on the opening George Fleck, vice president of global brand marketing and management, Renaissance Hotels, said:
“As global air travel demand continues to grow, there is an increasing opportunity to reimagine airport hotels through clever, theatrical design and engaging guest experiences.
“We are thrilled to introduce Renaissance Warsaw Airport Hotel, whose design coupled with our savvy Navigators and entertaining Evening Bar Rituals provides an open invitation to experience something a little unexpected during our guests’ travels.”
