A new hotel has been added to Germany’s Autograph Collection. The Hotel Elephant Weimar will now form part of the soft brand’s collection after its reopening following a nine-month renovation. We take a look inside this latest addition to the Autograph Collection in Germany.
Haunt of famous writers and artists
Marriott’s collection of luxury independent hotels under the soft brand Autograph Collection now includes the famous Hotel Elephant Weimar in Germany.
The hotel occupies a focal point at the center of the city. The hotel has always been part of the city’s history, and was a haunt of famous writers, artists and designers for many years, forming part of the cultural nexus of the city.
John Licence, vice president of premium and select brands, Europe, for Marriott International, said, “We are thrilled to reintroduce one of Germany’s most historic hotels, uniting its rich history with an exceptional renovation. Exactly like nothing else, this timeless hotel upholds Autograph Collection Hotels’ values of vision, design and craft.”
A historic transformation
This boutique hotel boasts 99 guest rooms and suites, all of which have been elegantly restored to capture the historic character of the hotel, while at the same time bringing it into the modern era.
The unique design is the result of a collaboration between Bost Interior Design and DK Architekten, who drew on the style and grace of the 1920s, as well as the existing art deco and Bauhaus elements already present in the hotel for the renovation.
The colour palette of greys, blue and emerald is taken from Goethe’s Theory of Colours, a clear reference to Germany’s literary history. The colour scheme is complemented by the carefully curated artworks that are peppered throughout the hotel.
Among the amenities now offered by the hotel is the Lichtsaal room, the cultural heart of the hotel, which will stage literary readings, theatre productions and live music concerts.
Guests will also be able to indulge in the new state-of-the-art spa that is due to open in February.
Business travelers will also be able to avail of the ample meeting and event space offered by the hotel, all of which are equipped with conference technology.
The hotel is also putting renewed focus on its culinary offerings, the highlight of which is the Restaurant Anna, which specialises in local cuisine using seasonal produce from the region.
