London may not yet have a Mövenpick. The Swiss-based hotel operator says that it is active with partners in securing a site, but a Paris operation is on its way. CEO Jean Gabriel Pérès has confirmed that contracts have been concluded to manage the former Courtyard by Marriott in the Neuilly business district. Now being sold as a Mövenpick the hotel will continue to be open throughout a floor-by-floor renovation to be completed in 2014. It is the 100th Mövenpick, which can trace its heritage back to 1948 and an ice cream product by the same name (now owned by Nestlé).
Next to the prestigious American Hospital, the hotel is a 10-minute walk away from the Bois du Boulogne. The hotel enjoys a fitness centre, underground parking for 180 cars and a secluded garden offering a sanctuary of calm in the capital. There are also 20 meeting rooms offering a total space of 1,100sqm. The multi-million-Euro renovation of the hotel will increase the number of rooms to 282 including 29 suites.
All rooms and bathrooms will enjoy a complete remodelling and be brought up to the standards required by Mövenpick. Unlike most competitors, the Zurich-based operation specialises in fully operating the hotel property, the site owner/backer a measured investor. www.moevenpick-hotels.com
