Brussels-bound travellers now have a fashionable alternative to their normal corporate hotel room. Warwick International Hotels' Royal Windsor Grand Place, located close to the Grand Place in the centre of the city, has just launched the last two of its 12 "Fashion rooms".
The Fashion rooms, which have been rolling out over the last two years, were designed by 12 established fashion designers, including Marina Yee, one of the "Antwerp Six", the group of students who took London Fashion week by storm in the eighties with their innovative ideas.The final two rooms (pictured) have just opened and are the concepts of Xavier Delcour and Christian Wijnants.
The Fashion rooms have the same in-room facilities as the hotel's 100 Business Premiere rooms, which include: free high speed internet access, flat screen television, safe, tea and coffee making facilities, and express check-in and check-out services on request.
The 266 room five-star hotel also has Superior rooms, Business Premiere rooms, Deluxe rooms and 16 Suites. For meetings there are 15 conference rooms, all with natural daylight, which can accommodate up to 300 people. The hotel also has a fitness centre with a sauna, which is free for guests, as well as a restaurant, two bars and a nightclub.
To promote the new rooms the hotel has a Fashion Addict Package from euros 229 for two people. The offer includes: a night in a fashion room, a "Fashion Tea" with desserts made by the hotel's pastry chef and a guide and map for all the fashion, food, art and lifestyle shops in Quartier Dansaert, the design district.
