Rom wird um ein Six Senses und Intercontinental reicher …
Bei IHG gibt es leider eine gewisse Schwäche im Luxussegment. Hier baut IHG derzeit aus.
Zwei neue IHG Häuser können wir für Rom erwarten. Das Intercontinental Rom De la Ville ist vor Jahren ausgeschieden. Es wird 2022 durch das Intercontinental Rom im ehemaligen Ambasciatori Palace Hotel ersetzt. Bereits 2021 kann man in Rom ein Six Senses erwarten.
Six Senses Rom in 2021
“Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini was built in the 18th century by Tomaso De Marchis, who adorned it with beautiful windows representing the epitome of Baroque motifs for Cardinal Mario Mellini. It was constructed on the site of an original palace of Cardinal Giovanni Michiel, nephew of Pope Paul II, built in the late 1480s. Over the centuries the palazzo has served as a residence for the São Marcelo cardinal-elders, Salviati, Cesi and Mellini (hence the long name) before it was passed to the Aldobrandini family and on to the Order of the Servants of Mary.
Protected by the Roman municipality and UNESCO listed, the main façade, which overlooks Via del Corso, is being restored back to its grand origins. The central staircase will also be preserved.
“As stewards of such a cultural and historical site, we are responsible for celebrating its past and conserving its potential for future generations,” said Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs. “It also speaks to my heart. I studied culture and art in Florence and feel at home in Italy. This is more than a building to me. It is a human project, which is why we are teaming up with the architects and designers who feel as passionate and excited as I do. We want this to be a place of harmony and connection for our guests, sprinkled with a lot of love.”
The interior design is by Patricia Urquiola, awarded “Order of Isabella the Catholic” by King Juan Carlos I of Spain and inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 2011. Mindful of the building’s authentic heritage, the design gently fuses a contemporary vision of hospitality. The ground floor is a social floor for gatherings, meetings, performances and events. The open kitchen trattoria and bar will lead out to a gallery and seating area complete with travertine marble, oak and bronze. Outside will be a botanical garden filled with plants that promote well-being.
The central floors will house the guest rooms and suites, many with notably high ceilings. A key feature is the range of quirky room types, staying true to how Six Senses likes to keep things original. The crowning glory is the large rooftop terrace with panoramic views, complete with an organic fruit and vegetable garden for recreating a Roman banquet or two.
The redevelopment is owned by the Orion European Real Estate Fund V, a fund sponsored by Orion Capital Managers, a European real estate private equity ﬁrm.
Six Senses Rome is set to open in late 2021.”

Intercontinental Rom in 2022
“The luxury hotel will be set on the iconic Via Veneto, in the Ludovisi area of the city, close to the Villa Borghese. The existing property – which includes 160 rooms and suites, a restaurant, bar, spa and public areas – will be restored to create a sense of discreet, modern luxury for visitors and locals alike.
Designed in the early 1900s by architect Carlo Busiri Vici in the neo-renaissance style, the palazzo building was originally home to ambassadors staying in Rome, opening as a hotel in 1993. Guests will benefit from its proximity to the city’s wealth of art and history, thanks to a prime position less than a kilometre walk from the Galleria Borghese, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. The hotel can be easily reached from Rome’s Ciampino or Fiumicino international airports and is less than 10 minutes from the city’s main rail station.
IHG joins a strong consortium including the US-based fund, Oaktree, Westmont Hospitality Group, strategic investment partner and operator, and UniCredit S.p.A, the project’s senior lending bank. The project is held by a newly established real estate investment fund managed by Milan-based Castello SGR, one of Italy’s premier real estate management companies.”
