Bristol Gets Makeover

The Bristol Hotel in Warsaw, which belongs to the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide chain, is undergoing an expensive revamp. As well as all the rooms, most of the public areas—the lobby, the bars, restaurants and keep-fit facilities—are being renovated. The work is planned for this year and the bill is expected to come to 9 million euros.

The renovation, which has already begun, will take in all the 205 rooms and apartments, the Kolumnowy Bar, the Marconi Restaurant and the pool. The lobby will be completely redeveloped and the reception is going back to its historical location from 1901. The hotel is also planning to open a wine bar to top off its culinary offerings.

“This is the biggest and most expensive renovation the Bristol has undergone in over 20 years and it began with the facade in 2008. I’m happy to say that, together with the owners, we’ll be able to bring back the spark to this magnificent building,” says Thomas Schoen, CEO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Poland.

“I’m sure that the new interior decor, the history of the hotel, and the first-class service for which we are famous will make this the most luxurious building in Warsaw once the renovation is finished,” adds Michael Goerdt, general manager of the Bristol Hotel.

The new interiors were designed by Anita Rosato, a highly regarded designer from London who specializes in decor for five-star hotels. Her studio has already implemented several impressive designs for Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

The interiors were inspired by the appearance of the hotel at the beginning of the 20th century and the art deco movement. These styles were supplemented with modern additions to produce a design that aims to be a chic fusion of all styles. The quality of materials, which were obtained from all over the world, was given special emphasis.

The renovation began in March and two floors have already been completed. The Bristol Hotel remains open for business every day and the renovation works have been planned so as not to disturb the guests.
