World’s First Hotel Missoni Opens In Edinburgh, Three More To Follow

Developed in collaboration with Italian fashion house Missoni, the Rezidor Hotel Group has opened its first Hotel Missoni in Edinburgh, Scotland, with 3 more Hotel Missoni properties set to open in Africa and the Middle East.

 

Hotel Missoni Edinburgh

Located on the corner of George IV Bridge and the Royal Mile, the 136-room hotel is within walking distance to Edinburgh Waverley station and features the signature style, colours and glamour of Missoni.

 

The Hotel Missoni Edinburgh features a unique design direction of black and white, animated with bursts of colour and trademark Missoni prints. Creative Director Rossita Missoni has also included the work of designers she personally admires, such as Marcel Wandes, Eero Saarinen and Arne Jacobson, into the overall decor of the hotel. 

 

Each of the 129 rooms is furnished with a luxury bed paired with linens from the Missoni Home collection, Italian-design bathroom with toiletries specially created for Missoni and scented with one of the brand’s fragrances, 26-inch LCD television with on-demand movies and AV connections for laptops and ipods. Guests also enjoy complimentary high-speed internet access, 2 telephones, personal safe, a complimentary “healthy minibar” and an Illy coffee machine. There are also 7 Suites ranging in size from 44 square meters to the 67-square meter Suite d’Argento.

 

At the heart of the property is the Cucina Missoni all-day dining restaurant. Capable of accomodating 100 diners, the restaurant’s atmosphere changes from relaxed and open at breakfast and lunch to vibrant and intimate at dinner. Cucina offers a menu of fresh, seasonal and authentic Italian dishes, served on china and glassware from the Missoni homeware range. Guests can also relax over drinks at Bar Missoni, located in the lobby. A variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, including cocktails unique to the hotel, will be offered.

 

For meetings and events, Hotel Missoni Edinburgh has 3 private rooms available, ranging in size from 28 to 75 square meters. Each room is stylishly designed with Missoni interiors, with the largest capable of being divided into 2 adjoining areas. The 3 rooms are complemented by a 100 square meter space, which can serve as a breakout area or pre-function space. Meeting planners are assisted by the hotel’s events team, who will ensure that events are tailored according to their individual requirements. Other facilities at the hotel include a fitness area located on the 2nd floor and a parking area for guests with their own transportation.

Following the Edinburgh property, the Hotel Missoni brand is set to expand with new hotels being developed in Kuwait, Oman and South Africa.

 

The Hotel Missoni Kuwait is a 169-room property located in Kuwait’s Salmiya district and is scheduled to open by end 2009, while the Hotel Missoni Jebel Sifah in Oman will have 250 rooms and 50 apartments when it opens in early 2012. The Rezidor Hotel Group has also announced the development of the Hotel Missoni Cape Town, set to open next year in time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The 157-room hotel will be located in Cape Town’s city center, with features such as a rooftop terrace with swimming pool offering views of Table Mountain.
