Starwood Opens a Luxury Hotel in Athens

News Starwood Hotels & Resorts is definitely a company that is ready to run risks. While so many business reports contain the information about poor results of Greek hotels and make negative forecasts, the famous hotelier plans to open a luxury hotel in Athens.

King George hotel in Athens is to open already this year. The property will belong to the famous Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts that unites best hotels in most popular tourist destinations. The hotel will be opened together with Lampsa Hellenic Hotels S.A. This hotel will become the eighth hotel in Greece under the Luxury Collection brand. Starwood plans to develop this brand actively and wants to have as many as 90 hotels around the world by 2016.

Both Lampsa and Starwood have expressed their hope that the Greek crisis will be a short one, and that the hotel will reach success and many devoted visitors.

The Luxury Collection has 85 hotels in its portfolio at the moment. These hotels are located in 30 countries, where they have proven themselves as extra quality hotels with exceptional service and the signature concierge service of the brand. King George will easily please even most discerning travellers who claim only the best. The building of the hotel is notable for its beautiful fa├žade made in the neoclassic style. This is a building with really long and respected history – the hotel was first opened in 1936. Wonderfully located in the historic Syntagma Square, this hotel can safely be called the center of the golden quarter of Athens. Near the hotel are located such famous tourist sites as the Parliament, the Acropolis and the Plaka Old City. Fashionista guests will also not be bored as the main shopping street of the city, Voukourestiou Street, is within walking distance from the hotel. The hotel will have 78 guestrooms and 24 suites that will feature fantastic views of the Acropolis. The hotel will have a signature restaurant, a bar, an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a business center, and a meeting space for all kinds of events and celebrations.
