Motel One Stuttgart Bad Cannstatt – new room concept

In the contested hotel market in Berlin the flat-rate strategy of Motel One (from 62 Euro per Night Room) caused a sensation. At the revived prime location in City West between the Zoo Station and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, a new hotel tower with 582 rooms and a skybar with panoramic view will open next summer. Just a stone’s throw from the East Berlin Alexanderplatz the largest Motel One hotel with 708 rooms is scheduled to open in autumn of next year.

Motel One is growing in Europe: new hotel construction projects are arising in France, the UK, Spain and Switzerland.

Motel One – new hotels in:
Germany – 12 (4,200 rooms)
Switzerland – 2 (543)
UK – 2 (647)
Spain – 1 (300)
France – 1 (255)
Austria – 1 (60)

Motel One has long been a European hotel chain with locations in the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Austria and Switzerland. In the past year the sales increased by a whopping 26 percent to around 322 million euros. The average occupancy rate of the almost 13,800 rooms in 51 hotels increased slightly to 75 percent – which are dream values in the hospitality industry.

The most recent opening is now the third hotel in Stuttgart: The hotel in Bad Cannstatt offers 141 rooms and is located close to the so-called Stuttgart Beer Festival, which is, beside the Oktoberfest in Munich, one of the biggest festivals in Germany. For the first time the company’s room concept has been expanded to increasingly address business travelers: A new element is the comfortable lounge chair in leather by “Freifrau”, as well as the height-adjustable table from Vitra, which is tailored to the needs of the (business) guest. In addition, the guest can now find a safe for securely storing personal valuables.

Hampton by Hilton Warsaw Airport – Opening is scheduled for early 2014

Poland’s market leader is the hotel chain Orbis, belonging to Accor, with 54 properties (10,610 rooms). Last year Orbis opened six new hotels (775 rooms) and stays therefore behind the investments of international hotel chains. Hilton currently develops three properties by its Doubletree by Hilton brand, two Hampton by Hilton hotels, one Hilton Garden Inn and a large Hilton Hotel in Poland. The 17-storey high Hampton by Hilton in the Warsaw city center will become one of the worldwide largest properties of this brand and the largest one in Europe; the opening is scheduled for early 2014. So far Hilton operates five hotels in Poland.

The US hotel giant Marriott is currently constructing a Courtyard by Marriott and a Renaissance Hotel. The Louvre Hotels Group is currently developing two Golden Tulip Hotels. Starwood Hotels invests into a Sheraton Resort.

Poland’s hotel market still has lots of potential in the budget and low budget segment. Therefore the German budget design hotel chain Motel One wants to build properties in several city centers. The first Motel One with about 180 rooms will be built in Warsaw. They are currently looking for a fitting location in Krakow.

The hotel industry is primarily focusing on business travelers. Relating to the organization of trade fairs, congresses and other business meetings, Poland is now on the sixth place in Europe. This results from a survey by the Institute of Business Travel Management IBTM in November 2012. According to the consulting company Right Solution, Poland offers a good value-for-money ratio for business travelers.
