The IntercityHotel Braunschweig opened for business at the start of the week, the first of the upper mid-range hotels operated under the brand to feature the new interior design by Matteo Thun. Located right next to the main railway station and the BraWoPark shopping and business centre, it offers 174 rooms, a conference area, a restaurant, a bistro and a bar.
IntercityHotels have also been working with leading chef Pierre Nierhaus to rework menus and culinary offerings. Guests in Braunschweig can, for example, choose between light and modern dishes and familiar classics. Another innovation is the introduction of a special mobile app developed by the company hotelbird which allows visitors to use their smart phones to check in and out, open the door to their room and pay the bill.
“The launch of the IntercityHotel Braunschweig is the starting signal for a whole new generation of IntercityHotels,” said Puneet Chhatwal, CEO Deutsche Hospitality. “We are delighted to be able to make our guest experience even more pleasant by offering a modern interior, convenient technology and a new gastronomic concept.”
Overall project development in Braunschweig was by the Hamburg-based B&L Group. The architectural firms of Reichel+Stauth from Braunschweig and php prasch buken und partner from Hamburg are responsible for the design of the hotel. The general contractor is W. Markgraf GmbH & Co KG of Bayreuth.
