The Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne, Switzerland, has unveiled three new conference rooms and 72 ultra stylish new business rooms following the completion of a major six-floor extension project. The Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne is situated directly on the shores of Lake Léman with astonishing views of the Alps.
The immaculately designed rooms in the new north wing are designed to satisfy a new generation of business travellers who not only need fast Wi-Fi and a safe place to store their laptops, but also a room that is contemporary as well as comfortable.
“Corporate travellers are increasingly discerning and it is critical as a business hotel that we not only cater to their every need but also offer extra elements that make their stay even more memorable,” said Christian Kramer, general manager of the hotel.
Among these elements are cutting edge ‘open space’ bathrooms with individual walk-in Italian style rain showers and separate toilet; a pillow menu with six different options; a 32-inch, 135-channel LED television; a Nespresso coffee machine; private balcony and an inviting interior design that is contemporary and bold as well as warm and inviting. Each room features soothing tones of dark purple offset by beige headboards, wooden motifs, bold carpets and historic images of the Ouchy area from Lausanne Museum. Every business need is also included from broadband wireless Internet connection and a spacious workstation to international sockets and a dedicated multi-functional “USB spider” for hard drives, smart phones, laptops, cameras, tablets or MP3s.
The new rooms are contained within six floors of the new hotel extension that has been designed with sustainability in mind from the start. The extension enjoys solar power and an energy-recycling heat pump for under-floor heating. There are also three new seminar rooms, Genève, Amsterdam and Berlin. Enjoying a total area of 107 square metres, each interconnecting room features state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and natural daylight. The Berlin room has access to a private terrace.
“Lausanne is growing in popularity as a business destination and as a place to hold conferences or meetings because of its stunning location overlooking the lake and Alps,” said Christian Kramer. “Now we have new rooms and facilities that complement these corporate requirements perfectly.”
The demand for the new rooms is underpinned by several large events taking place at the Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne. In March, the hotel hosted the Salon Immobilier de Lausanne, the most important real estate trade show in French-speaking Switzerland, in April the annual forum of the Fédération Equestre International and in August it is the venue for Althlétissima, one of the largest Diamond League Athletic meetings in Switzerland.
The 337-room Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne can comfortably accommodate up to 300 delegates in its 18 conference rooms and 430 square-metre function hall. All the rooms have been recently refurbished and many offer access to the hotel’s first-floor terrace that overlooks Lake Léman and the Alps.
