IBA have been retained on the stage-by-stage renovation of the hotel which is the largest conference hotel in Central Europe with over 800 rooms. The phased renovations have been carried out across 2 ownerships and 3 different GMs. The project commenced with a new fitness / spa complex in 2001 and continued in 2010 with the construction of the acclaimed ‘Cloud 9’ roof-top bar. Further refurbishments followed in the 2010s, including the main restaurant, the café bistro and conference areas, and culminated in the renovation of all guest rooms from 2017 till 2019. The latest ongoing projects include the refurbishment of the executive lounge and meeting facilities, the ground floor lobby / reception remodeling and a 6500m2 new build conference hall extension. Over time these projects have evolved and IBA has been invited back to refresh and update areas which were first completed more than a decade earlier.
