Starwood Hotels & Resorts will introduce its wellness brand, Westin Hotels & Resorts to Hamburg, Germany’s vibrant cultural centre with the new Westin Hamburg Hotel, scheduled to open in 2010.  Westin Hamburg will be part of a landmark development, including the highly-anticipated Elbe Philharmonic Hall.  The hotel will be designed by world-renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron as part of the highly anticipated Elbe Philharmonic complex, Europe’s most ambitious development projects.

Expected to become a cultural and architectural landmark, this urban development will also include luxury residences and a multitude of culinary, cultural and nightlife options all set in the heart of upscale HafenCity.  Tailored to both business and leisure travelers, the ultra-modern 10-storey Westin Hamburg Hotel will feature 244 guest rooms including 39 suites, all with the iconic Westin Heavenly Bed, a restaurant, a cafe, destination bar, lounge and a spa including a Westin WorkOut fitness centre and an indoor swimming pool.

With over 1.8 million inhabitants, Hamburg is Germany’s second largest city. It is one of the most popular leisure destinations in Europe and recognised as a cultural and commercial centre, with stunning architecture and a vast array of entertainment and shopping options. Through a joint venture with Arabella Hospitality Group, Starwood currently operates more than 30 hotels in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Mallorca and South Africa under its Westin, Sheraton, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and Four Points by Sheraton brands.
