Dusseldorf’s luxury boutique hotel The Wellem has joined Hyatt’s upmarket The Unbound Collection, marking the brand’s first property in Germany.
Located in the historic Andreas Quarter, the 102-room hotel was previously operated under the Hyatt House brand and is within walking distance of the famous shopping boulevard Konigsallee and the Rhine river. The building was first constructed in 1913 as a courthouse and has been preserved over the years.
The hotel is named after Jan Wellem, a member of Germany’s Wittelsbach dynasty who played an important role in transforming the city into “the centre of culture and fine arts that it is today”, and pays homage to its namesake through its art-filled interiors. A collection of contemporary art, including works by renowned artists such as Jeff Koons, is on display throughout the public spaces and guestrooms.
Additionally, guests have access to the hotel’s private Art Concierge, who offers background on the masterpieces within the property as well as tours at the nearby K20 art collection and Arts Academy of the city of Dusseldorf.
The hotel’s studios and suites each have separate living and sleeping areas, Bluetooth speakers and SuitePads to communicate with reception, while art suites on the fifth floor also offer access to the hotel’s rooftop terrace.
The hotel has three restaurants, specialising in both German and Mediterranean cuisine.
Till Westheuser, General Manager at The Wellem, said:
“As a nod to the art displayed within the property, The Wellem’s mission is to celebrate the individuality of each guest entering through our doors.
“The hotel offers the perfect playground for individually-minded guests and we want them to create their own story-worthy experiences at Germany’s first hotel within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand portfolio.”
To celebrate the opening, World of Hyatt members will be able to earn 500 Bonus Points for qualifying nights from November 10, 2020, until January 31, 2021.
The Wellem is the seventh property in Europe to open as part of The Unbound Collection, joining the Great Scotland Yard Hotel in London, Hôtel du Louvre in Paris, Parisi Udvar Hotel in Budapest, Hotel Martinez in Cannes, Hotel du Palais Biarritz, and Hotel Sofia Barcelona. The brand also plans to début in Japan in 2022.
