The 274-room hotel will be developed in central Munich in a cultural district known as Schwabinger Tor. Situated between Leopoldstrasse and Berlinerstrasse, Andaz Munich will be part of a mixed use site, which will include newly constructed upscale residential apartments, retail shops, offices, theaters, and restaurants. Guests at Andaz Munich will experience the personal style, comfort and sophistication for which the brand is known in the hotel’s 234 guestrooms, 36 junior suites, three executive suites, and a presidential suite. The hotel will also feature an all-day dining restaurant, a lounge and rooftop bar, as well as an extensive fitness center with spa and pool facilities. Conference facilities will include a ballroom, seven conference rooms and pre-function space. “We are eager to expand the Andaz brand presence in Europe, and especially in Germany,” said Peter Norman, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Development – Europe, Africa, and Middle East for Hyatt. “Andaz Munich will bring to life the brand’s mission of creating inspiring, indigenous experiences and immersing guests into the destination’s local culture with an array of unique activities. We continue to see a positive response from our Andaz guests across in Europe – at Andaz Liverpool Street London and Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht – and we believe Andaz Munich will continue to bring excitement to Europe’s travelers.”
