The HNH Hospitality Group has broadened its offer with the Grand Hotel Des Arts in Corso Porta Nuova in Verona.
Constructed in the early 1920s, this elegant building was once the private residence of the Reichenbach family, members of the Austrian nobility. Subsequently the property was transformed into a large hotel, preserving its architectural value and turning it into a premium hotel in the city, thanks to its strategic location in the city center as well.
Since 1990, the hotel has been managed with great passion and foresight by a family of entrepreneurs from Verona, who have made it one of the best hotels in the city.
The structure has five floors, 62 guest rooms and suites, a bar, an elegant breakfast room, two meeting rooms that can seat up to 120 people and a relaxing garden with an adjacent courtyard.
After having planned investments, the hotel will be inaugurated under the Hotel Indigo® brand of the IHG InterContinental Hotels Group, one of the world’s leading hotel companies with 843.000 rooms and over 5.600 hotels in more than 100 countries.
“With great satisfaction today we add an important block to our group’s growth and expansion plan – comments Luca Boccato, CEO of HNH Hospitality. Verona is a strategic city for us and the Grand Hotel Des Arts puts us in the historic center of the leisure segment, joining Best Western CTC Hotel Verona, another structure in our portfolio. Important operating synergies, once the rebranding has been completed, will also be developed with the Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena, which our group has just inaugurated in Venice.”
Eric Viale, Managing Director, Southern Europe, IHG, commented: “Verona is the perfect location for a unique, design-led boutique brand like Hotel Indigo, which has had significant owner and guest interest in Italy. HNH Hospitality is an important partner for us and, following the recent opening of the Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena, we are delighted to work together to further grow the brand’s presence across the country.”
The Hospitality department at Cushman & Wakefield, one of the most important private companies in the global real estate market, acted as an advisor, putting the HNH Hospitality group at the helm to manage the hotel in Verona.
Dario Leone, Partner, Head of Hospitality at Cushman & Wakefield in Italy, comments on the operation: “Reaching this agreement confirms that the operators are broadening their interest toward different destinations than the main Italian cities. The search and selection of the operator for the Grand Hotel Des Arts affirms the leadership of the Hospitality team at Cushman & Wakefield in Italy for this typology of services. The agreement further strengthens the excellent commercial relations between Cushman & Wakefield and the HNH Hospitality Group, being the third operation in the last few years”.
