Modern Design Meets Bavarian Charm
German interior-design company, Studio Lux Berlin, sought inspiration from the Westend district’s rich history to create a thoughtful, locally inspired design narrative where industrial heritage meets Bavarian charm. Guests are welcomed into comfortable, contemporary and functional public spaces, beginning with the Greatroom lobby, which hosts the westhub bar & lounge – a stylish social hub designed to inspire and connect guests whether they are travelling for business or leisure. The interior design of the public spaces nods to the neighbourhood’s industrial heritage, incorporating materials such as warm metals and brick to create a strong sense of place, while the rich green colour tones used throughout the hotel harmoniously balance these materials to retain an intimate and inviting feel.
The more refined material palette of the hotel’s 398 spacious guestrooms and M Club, an exclusive lounge for Elite Marriott Bonvoy members and guests of executive and higher room categories, evokes a distinctly residential feel. All guestrooms allow keyless access and include design touches that nod to the local culture, such as lion heads on each wall, which are said to bring good luck to guests that stroke them.
Innovative Spaces for all Occasions
The arrival of Munich Marriott Hotel City West will bring an unparalleled MICE venue to the city of Munich, incorporating innovative, flexible design and forward-thinking technology into its 20 exceptional meeting and events spaces – totaling 2,440sqm over two entire floors of the hotel.
