Movenpick to open new hotel at Stuttgart Airport
Movenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to open a new airport hotel, situated adjacent to the S-Bahn and the planned ICE airport station and tram terminal stop.
“Our existing hotel opened nine years ago and overseen by Jürgen Köhler, general manager and director of Operations Germany, is highly regarded as an excellent hotel choice in this important economic centre,” said Ola Ivarsson, chief operating officer Europe. “With this new project, we are proud to support all the stakeholders, not least Stinag,
Stuttgart Invest AG and Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH, in their efforts to transform this first-class location into one of the most important hubs in Germany.”
Ulm architects Mühlich, Fink & Partner will design the 262-room hotel on the site of a former airport administration building.
On the culinary front, the hotel will have a 150 seat restaurant and a bar with seating for 100 guests.
For events and conferences, the design incorporates a 740-square metre ballroom in addition to several meeting rooms. When combined with the conference space at the Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport & Messe, just a short walk away, it will create the biggest meeting and event space in southern Germany, at almost 3,000 square metres.
There are currently eight Mövenpick hotels in Germany, three in the Netherlands, one in France, four in Turkey and five in Switzerland. Another hotel will also open in Basel city centre in 2019.
