Autograph signs Lucerne hotel
The Hotel in Lucerne joins Marriott International?s Autograph Collection. The property, which opened as a hotel 2000, is located in a building dating to 1907.
Owner Urs Karli ? a leading hotelier renowned for his innovative gastronomy concepts ? is behind the vision of The Hotel, and worked with award-winning French architect Jean Nouvel to transform the building into a unique space for a modern hotel.
John Licence, brand leader for Autograph Collection Hotels in Europe, commented: ?We are delighted to welcome our second design hotel from Switzerland into the Collection. The Hotel was the first boutique design hotel to enter this market, and is known for being part hotel, part contemporary art installation. It?s this unique attribute that makes it perfect for joining Autograph Collection Hotels.?
The brand anticipates signing its 100th hotel by the end of 2015.
