ALHI adds new member hotels in Sydney, Czech Republic

The Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) further expanded its global portfolio with the additions of hotels in Sydney, Australia and in The Czech Republic.

The Langham, Sydney joins as ALHI’s first member hotel in that global destination, and as ALHI’s second member hotel in Australia, joining The Langham, Melbourne. Meanwhile, the Augustine Hotel Prague in Prague becomes ALHI’s first member hotel in that city in The Czech Republic.

Both have now joined the ALHI Global Sales Organization (GSO) network, and its established global sales force throughout North America. The hotels now receive ALHI’s dedicated GSO services and sales support to North American corporations, associations, independent planners, business executives and incentive specialists desiring to conduct meetings and/or incentive programs at the hotels. The hotels also became the newest members in the global portfolio of Associated Destinations Worldwide (ADW), ALHI’s global sales specialist team to support planners, which was added to the ALHI team in the last year.

Augustine Hotel Prague blends 800 years of history with five-star deluxe service and modern amenities. The property was created from seven different buildings of historical significance, including the 13th Century Augustinian St. Thomas Monastery, after which the hotel takes its name. Located on the south bank of the city, close to the Prague Castle, The Charles Bridge and Old Town, this hotel features 101 rooms and 4,285 square feet of meeting space. Among the onsite amenities are a spa, the monastery’s library, a 200-capacity ballroom, the Lichfield Restaurant (housed in a glass-covered courtyard), the Lichfield Café & Bar and The St. Thomas Brewery Bar.

Nestled near the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Langham, Sydney is situated near the Rocks district and the Central Business District. Formerly known as The Observatory Hotel before it joined Langham Hospitality Group in August 2012, the 96-room hotel offers 4,520 square feet of meeting space and is surrounded by exclusive boutiques, restaurants and tourist attractions. Onsite offerings at the sophisticated The Langham, Sydney include a spa, a fitness center, a 65-foot heated swimming pool with marble columns, steam rooms, sauna, the Galileo Restaurant, the Globe Bar & Brasserie and daily afternoon tea.

In addition to their membership in ALHI’s worldwide portfolio, The Langham, Sydney and Augustine Hotel Prague become ALHI’s newest members in its “ALHI Passport Collection,” consisting of ALHI’s 27 Four- and Five-Diamond quality member hotels and resorts outside of the United States, while the U.S. portfolio expands beyond 100,000 rooms and suites.
