Steigenberger Hotel Group: Steigenberger Grand Hotel in Brussels

FRANKFURT, September 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Brussels is the latest addition to the locations of the Steigenberger Hotel Group. The Frankfurt based hotel company is taking over a 269-room luxury hotel in the Belgian capital at the beginning of January 2013, and will run it in the future as Steigenberger Grand Hotel Brussels.

Steigenberger is expanding its activities abroad, and will take over the operation of a landmark hotel building, part of the Wiltcher's complex, located Avenue Louise in Brussels with effect from 1 January 2013. The hotel will continue to be managed under the Conrad brand until the end of 2012. Following the Steigenberger Hotel at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in September this year, this is the second international acquisition within just a few weeks. It is the logical continuation of Steigenberger's strategic expansion into major European cities and capitals; alongside Brussels and Amsterdam, Steigenberger's locations include Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt and Zurich.

The future Steigenberger Grand Hotel Brussels is ideally located right at the centre of the city, in the elegant Avenue Louise very close to the Royal Palace, Grand Place, the European Parliament, the Exhibition and Convention Centre, and the most important tourist sights of Brussels.

An investment programme for the coming years has been agreed with the owner, AG Real Estate, in order to give guests the best possible quality and service, in line with the international Steigenberger standards.

"We are delighted at the chance to realize our first Steigenberger Hotel in Belgium, together with our partner AG Real Estate. The Steigenberger Grand Hotel Brussels will be one of Belgium's top hotels, and an excellent addition to our portfolio," said Matthias Heck, Management Board of Steigenberger Hotels AG.

This luxury hotel behind a historic façade has 269 guest rooms, including 32 suites and a Royal Suite, plus the restaurant "Café Wiltcher's" and the "Loui Lounge and Bar". It has conference facilities for up to 600 people in 16 conference rooms. The hotel also has the city's largest column-free ballroom with 550 sqm, and there is underneath the hotel a 3,200 sqm fitness center and spa complete with pool operated by Aspria.

Steigenberger Hotels AG is one of Europe's leading hotel companies. It has its head office in Frankfurt/Main and operates 80 hotels in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Egypt. The umbrella organisation Steigenberger Hotel Group comprises the two brands Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts (47 individual first-class and deluxe hotels) and InterCityHotel (33 mid-class hotels located directly at transport hubs such as railway stations and airports). Steigenberger Hotels AG has been in the sole ownership of Mr Hamed El Chiaty since 2009.
