We have a selection of new luxury hotels due to open in 2014. MONDRIAN LONDON – Opening Spring 2014
In spring 2014 Morgans Hotel Group will launch its fifth Mondrian branded hotel in the group, Mondrian London. Situated on the banks of The River Thames in Sea Containers House, the hotel is a striking presence between the OXO Tower and Blackfriars Bridge. Mondrian London is being designed by Design Research Studio, under creative direction of Tom Dixon. It is the first hotel for Design Research Studio and a new London venture for Morgans Hotel Group, also marking the first collaboration between the British interior design practice and the American hotel group.
The 359 bedroom hotel will embody the elegance of a transatlantic 1920’s liner combined with a healthy dose of 1980s post-modernism reference. The main lobby will feature a giant, external and internal, copper clad wall inspired by the hull of a ship, running from outside the building and glamorous leading guests to the entrance hall within. The vast, 1500 m2, ground floor area includes one river-side restaurant and a breakfast bar.
A roof-top bar will be edged with glass boasting views of the North and South of the city inspired by the top deck of a cruise liner. Drawing from the signature colours of the Morgans ‘Agua’ brand, the spa architecture will graduate from white through to darker shades to encourage relaxation and calmly leading guests towards an exclusively designed secret water feature.
A 61-seater screening room, to be used for TV and film premiers, will continue the maritime theme using bold blue colours. The hotel will also feature a series of flexible break out and meeting rooms.
GENERATOR PARIS – Opening Late 2014
True to all existing Generator locations, the Paris property will be in the vibrant 10th Arrondissement and the Canal St-Martin neighbourhood, an area rich in art galleries, boutiques, bars and restaurants and only 15 minutes’ walk from both Gare de l’Est, Gare du Nord and Bastille.
Generator Paris will be the brand’s largest property, accommodating up to 950 guests in a range of dorms, private rooms and luxury penthouse apartments, all of which will be en-suite. The interiors will include a café lounge and a vibrant nightclub bar, all of which will be crafted to reflect the surrounding neighbourhood and the distinct Paris culture by The Design Agency, Generator’s expert design leaders.
THE NORMAN, TEL AVIV – Opening Spring 2014
Situated in the charming King Albert Square lies The Norman. Converted from two historic buildings dating from the 1920’s, the elegant hotel remains true to its Bauhaus architectural surroundings and features a remarkable contemporary art collection.
The Norman is made up of 50 rooms and suites that include two penthouse apartments with extensive terraces and hardwood floors.
The hotel has two restaurants; the Dining Room and the Rooftop Terrace. The Dining Room serves exquisite Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of Israeli flair and has an alfresco dining area in the garden. The Rooftop terrace has a gorgeous 360 degree panoramic view of Tel Aviv. Alternatively, guests can opt for the in-room dining option.
The Norman is located in close proximity to the trendy Rothschild Boulevard – Tel Aviv’s first boulevard. By day, Rothschild is a commercial hub with key financial institutions lining the street. By night, it is buzzing with diners and party-goers, proving it to be the place to be seen.
The Norman’s Concierge is eager to share their expertise with guests allowing them to experience the true sense of Tel Aviv. After having explored the beautiful city of Tel Aviv, guests can retreat to the hotel and enjoy the hotel’s signature pomegranate martini by the pool, or indulge in a relaxing outdoor massage.
