Meliá Hotels announced that it is slated to open a fifth hotel in Düsseldorf, Innside Dusseldorf Hafen.
The new four-star hotel, which will be operated by the Innside by Melia design brand, will be located inside the Colorium building in the Medienhafen area of the city, also the capital of the Federal State of North Rhine Westphalia.
The landmark building at Speditionstrasse, 17 levels and 62 meters in height, was designed by the British architect William Allen Alsop for a private investor, and is one of the symbols of the new en vogue quarter. A facade, comprising over 2,000 colorful glass panels, was hung in front of it, displaying a mixture of full-color spaces and differentiated four-color elements.
A key feature of the building is the signal-red technology level on the top floor, protruding above the port basin and which is illuminated at night. An Innside Skybar & Lounge has been planned for this.
A total of 134 rooms and suites, as well as two conference rooms spread across floors five to 14 and the ground floor are planned. The Colorium's floors that are not occupied by the hotel will contain office rooms and showrooms.
Planning and realization of the hotel conversion will be carried out under Kai 18 Projekte GmbH in Dusseldorf, which was also responsible for the project development, planning and realization of the Innside hotel in Duesseldorf-Derendorf that opened in 2008.
