First new room at The Hotel, Brussels – inspirational, elegant and innovative
Today the first new guest room of The Hotel was unveiled during a press conference. This room provides an exciting first glimpse into the spectacular, full-scale renovation to come.
The stylish, elegant room features the ideal mix of comfort and technology.
The most striking feature of the new room is the revolutionary layout. Gone are the obligatory desk, corner armchair, curtains, and traditional floor and table lamps…. A leather sofa runs across the entire width of the room, accented with a practical oval-shaped table. The space has been optimized to provide the visitor with maximum utility, whether it’s to work, relax or simply enjoy a great view of Brussels. Traditional curtains have been replaced with sliding semi-transparent panels that can filter in light. The room can be electrically darkened. Another striking detail is that the bathroom is also part of the open-plan space. This contributes to the overall feeling of spaciousness, but also allows the visitor to admire the fantastic views, even from the shower!
For the tech savvy, modern, cosmopolitan guest Technology has become increasingly important to the modern business traveler. At The Hotel, guests can use the MediahubTM to connect their electronic devices (smart phone, tablet PC, digital camera, video camera, iPod, iPhone, game console, etcetera) to their in-room television, providing instant access to their own music, videos photos and games directly through the TV, which acts as their own personal entertainment centre. Smartphones and tablet PCs equipped with stereo bluetooth can stream audio wirelessly through the TV.
The first new rooms will be ready to welcome guests in April 2012, with more to follow by September 2012. All 424 rooms will be ready by spring 2013.
