The Spanish hotel property Iberostar Hotels and Resorts is coming soon to Rome’s city center. That’s right, the Iberostar Fontana di Trevi is scheduled to debut there some time next year as part of that company’s ongoing plan to grow its presence in international city centers.
To be precise, the new hotel will be located on one of the main streets in Rome’s historic city center, between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, which are two of the international city’s most popular architectural sites. Also, the property will have a total of 67 rooms and it will stand six stories tall. It’s a 19th century building that combines Renaissance and Neo-Renaissance style elements.
French artist Daniel Buren will create a contemporary art piece that will be unveiled on November 9. Buren was commissioned for this project due to his work blending modernity and classical architecture, two concepts that are expected to form a quintessential part of the hotel’s identity.
The Iberostar Fontana di Trevi in Rome brings the number of properties in the company’s city hotel portfolio to 10, joining those located in New York City, Miami, Lisbon, Havana, Madrid, Barcelona and Budapest. It also represents a further move forward in its city hotels expansion strategy, designed to boost the company’s presence in the world’s top tourist capitals.
“Rome is one of the top international destinations attracting both business and leisure travelers, and Iberostar Fontana di Trevi is designed as a boutique hotel tailored to cater to both types of guests,” said Aurelio Vázquez, Iberostar Group’s COO. “The building is truly unique and boasts an unparalleled location, and we are working hard to offer first-class services and facilities.”
The Iberostar Group has a portfolio of more than 120 hotels in 18 countries.
It is also important to note that a recent report from the TOPHOTELCONSTRUCTION database paints a picture of a robust project pipeline in Italy. In fact, according to that report there are currently 65 projects in the pipeline there, which, once completed, will yield a total of 9,612 new rooms. Roughly 45 percent of those projects, however, are not slated to be completed until the year 2021 or beyond.
