Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott International’s exclusive portfolio of hotels, welcomes a new Swiss boutique hotel to its collection on 8 July 2015. Located in a beautiful corner building established in 1907, The Hotel, which opened in 2000, is an urban design hotel with exceptional park views set in the heart of Lucerne.

Spread across seven floors, the hotel incorporates 30 studios and suites, each providing guests with an unforgettable experience, as a play of light and color produces individual effects in each room - all of which are different. The four penthouse suites all feature roof terraces, whilst the 10 garden and park loft suites come complete with patios. All rooms are fully air conditioned and equipped with modern amenities including Wi-Fi, minibar and Nespresso machine.

Completely conceived and designed by Nouvel, the interiors are an architectural marvel and bear Nouvel’s classic hallmark – the interplay of wood and steel. All of The Hotel’s vertical panels are made from wood, whilst the horizontal panels are made from stainless steel. The purposefully understated corridor leads guests into the rooms, each with large windows that open up breath-taking views of the city and the park adjacent to the hotel. Each room is unique, with different ceiling or wall projections depicting 30 film scenes from Nouvel’s own personal background, creating a cinematic experience for guests.

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.”

He continued, “The portfolio is growing rapidly within Europe, and we have no doubt that guests of The Hotel in Lucerne will have an unforgettable experience, as they do at all of our Autograph Collection properties.”
