Hotel Bristol Reopens

Warsaw’s historic Hotel Bristol has reopened following an extensive multi-million dollar renovation, joining Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury Collection brand. Since its founding in 1901 by former Polish Prime Minister Ignacy Paderewski, the hotel has cemented its reputation as one of the city’s icons, providing unrivaled hospitality for discerning travellers drawn to its glamour, decadence and prestigious location on the fashionable Royal Route.

 

Behind the majestic neo-renaissance facade, London-based hotel designer Anita Rosato has created an interior that preserves and recaptures Hotel Bristol’s illustrious history and romantic charm. Art Nouveau influence bespoke design accents found throughout the 112-year old property, with the lobby’s grand floral display of palm trees and freshly-cut blooms a contemporary re-interpretation of the original winter garden by Viennese architect Otto Wagner.

 

206 guestrooms and suites, ranging from 24 to over 100 square meters, feature a colour palette comprising understated shades of ivory and blue that create a soothing backdrop for the contrasting charcoal and ebony furnishings. Timeless accessories evoke an elegant ambiance that gently remind of the hotel’s history, with luxury bedding, chic marble bathrooms complemented by modern conveniences to encapsulate the glamour and decadence of its heyday.

 

Exquisite dining returns to the hotel with the Polish and Mediterranean offerings spearheaded by Chef de Cuisine Michal Tkaczyk at the Marconi Restaurant, enjoyed in a sophisticated and romantic setting with its classic interiors. The legendary Cafe Bristol enchants with its original Viennese-style interiors and coffee aromas best enjoyed over traditional dishes and patisserie, while the majestic Column Bar captures the essence of the heritage hotel where curved leather banquette seating and tall-back wingchairs hark back to the elegance of yesteryear as guests enjoy signature cocktails such as “The Nocturne Fizz”, a vodka-based concoction inspired by the Mazovia region. Wine lovers will appreciate the array of wines from renowned vineyards at the new Advinture Wine Bar, where the intimate yet vibrant decor provides an unforgettable oenological discovery.

 

13 conference rooms featuring Art Nouveau decor are equipped with state-of-the-art meeting equipment for business travellers and event planners. When business has been taken care of, guests can retreat to the wellness area, featuring an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, wet and dry saunas as well as massage services. The Luxury Collection’s signature concierge service is also available to guests seeking experiences beyond the hotel.

 

Hotel Bristol joins 5 other Starwood hotels in Poland under the Sheraton and Westin brands, including the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel, The Westin Warsaw, Sheraton Poznan Hotel, Sheraton Krakow Hotel and the Sheraton Sopot Hotel, Conference Center & Spa.
