“Munich Marriott Hotel City West will become the epitome of modernism and event innovation in the city, setting new standards nationwide and abroad”, explains René Mooren, Munich Marriott Hotel City West General Manager in the press release announcing the opening in September 2023. The guests will enjoy an especially comfortable feature in the hotel’s bathrooms: All 398 rooms of every category feature TOTO WASHLET.

 

Shaped by its history as a diverse industrial district, Munich’s Westend neighbourhood has experienced a remarkable transformation over the past few decades. Today, Westend is a cool, colourful and inspiring place to be, cleverly connecting Munich’s traditions with young urban lifestyles. Likewise, Munich Marriott Hotel City West has a characteristically Munich feel that is open to the world.

 

Expertly designed: Lighting, materials and inspiration from the neighbourhood’s history

This fusion is subtle yet palpable throughout the entire building. Munich Marriott Hotel City West is inviting, elegant and timeless, yet edgy. Studio Lux Berlin was responsible for the interior design. Founder and Managing Director Joern Siebke has extensive experience in holistic room design and creating unique atmospheres. Trained as a landscape architect and architectural lighting designer, he has collaborated with renowned architectural and interior design firms on a number of international hotel projects for over 20 years – constantly elevating his abilities to craft hotel spaces with extraordinary atmospheres. Munich Marriott Hotel City West features natural earth tones, warm metals, wood and brick as an homage to the district’s industrial heritage. The accentuated, carefully curated lighting truly turns heads in its interplay with handcrafted, structured spaces, reflective high-gloss elements and bold, rich materials. The end result: an expertly designed and memorable hotel interior that could be the backdrop of a film.

 

TOTO WASHLET make all the difference – the best quality in the most private of spaces

All 398 rooms and suites at Munich Marriott Hotel City West are divided into nine categories. What they all have in common is their unique, warm and understated elegance, exuding a feeling of peace and calm. The rooms also feature locally inspired design elements – like the lion’s heads on the walls, which guests are encouraged to rub for good luck. Or the wood panelling reminiscent of Alpine homes. The special twist is found in the most private of spaces and makes the biggest difference: All 398 rooms of every category at Munich Marriott Hotel City West include TOTO WASHLET. Joern Siebke explains why they decided to install TOTO WASHLET in every room: “TOTO products are considered differentiators that give Munich Marriott Hotel City West an elevated quality, setting it apart from other properties on the market.” He continues: “It’s possible to book a standard room here and still experience TOTO WASHLET – something that’s reserved for guests in only the most elevated suite categories at other hotels.” Hotel bathrooms are essential to making people feel comfortable, which is why the developers chose TOTO WASHLET. “We’ve seen this development in showers over the past several years. Rainfall showers – once a real highlight in hotel bathrooms – have become almost expected standard features. International business travellers and a certain clientele already associate the TOTO brand with high quality and exclusivity. To make the real difference, we wanted to give our guests a next-level experience in the most private of spaces – the bathroom,” explains Joern Siebke. All guests will enjoy the many convenient features, exceptional hygiene and comfort that TOTO WASHLET has to offer.

 

Exquisite dining options – for major events or private celebrations

The owners wanted an exquisite hotel that would fill a gap in Munich’s MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions/events) market. Studio Lux Berlin did just that with a versatile concept that makes so many things possible over nearly 1,600 m2 and three floors. The hotel has an extraordinary range of flexible, adaptable spaces for meetings, conferences, conventions and celebrations – from the column-free ballroom spanning over 900 m2 with its own entrance and space for over 600 guests to the small, cosy meeting studio with just 20 m2 of space. The event space on the first floor even has its own open-plan show kitchen attached to the studio, allowing conferences and meetings at Munich Marriott Hotel City West to be transformed to special events for connoisseurs.

 

Guests have a wide variety of dining options to choose from: Assoluto Ristorante & Vineria has an open-plan kitchen and serves authentic Italian delicacies. The open restaurant area also incudes a separate Wine Room for more intimate gatherings and tastings. People can enjoy their morning coffee or a quick afternoon snack at Assoluto Café. westhub bar & lounge provides a lovely, relaxed space for more casual get-togethers. Elite members of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty programme and guests staying in executive and higher room categories can enjoy free refreshments around the clock at the exclusive M Club Lounge on the seventh floor. Another highlight is the spacious rooftop terrace available for event bookings, which provides a stunning view of the city and the Alps.

 

A visit to Munich Marriott Hotel City West is more than just a visit to Munich – it’s an excursion into an entirely new world full of beauty and extraordinary comfort for every guest.
