Famed for its cathedrals, castles and the ornate Charles Bridge, the Czech Republic capital of Prague has recently seen growth in its meetings offerings. As one high-profile example, the central Hilton Prague Old Town
has announced the completion of a multimillion-dollar renovation of its guest rooms and meeting space without sacrificing its original art deco splendor.
The hotel's 303 guest rooms have been refreshed with a new design that blends modern and classic elements, including spacious work desks, 55-inch flat-screen TVs and new-fangled mini bars. The rooms also have been fitted with new carpeting and a "relaxation corner" complete with lounge chair and standing lamp.
"The considerable investment made by the hotel's owners, M&L Hospitality
, will ensure an elevated guest experience at Hilton Prague Old Town," said Christian Schwenke, general manager
of the property. "Working closely with Chada
, the world-renowned interior-design studio, M&L Hospitality wanted to ensure the guest rooms and meeting spaces were stylish, comfortable and functional."
The Hilton Prague Old Town's almost 13,000 square feet of conference space also has been revamped, with a new carpet and color scheme throughout the 14 function rooms and 340-person-capacity Dvorak Ballroom.
"With the elegant art deco design elements throughout the hotel -- including the lobby, Zinc Restaurant, meeting floor and guest rooms -- we are bringing an authentic Prague experience into the hotel," added Schwenke. "Together with our highly personalized approach to caring for our guests, I am sure we are the top choice for leisure and business clientele traveling to Prague."
