The Rezidor Hotel Group and prizeotel are pleased to continue delivering on their joint venture with signing of a new prizeotel in Münster-City, Germany, scheduled to open in 2020. Karim Rashid, the renowned New York-based designer and brand curator, will once again showcase his'designocrasy' at the new prizeotel.
prizeotel Münster-City is at the central inner-city location on the second front of the main railway station "Münster Hauptbahnhof" and just a short walk from the city center, congress hall, and at the gateway to the Hanseatic quarter. The area around the former city harbor is considered to be one of the liveliest of the city in North Rhine-Westphalia. A modern hotel architecture created by kadawittfeldarchitektur complements the neighborhood's urban living. A three-building complex featuring one hotel (prizeotel) and two student accommodation facilities hosts a wide range of shops, offices and restaurants over 8,000 sqm area.
prizeotel founder, Marco Nussbaum is proud of the new addition, which complements the redesigned railway station setting. "A beautiful location in the heart of Münster and an innovative brand are going to lead to an incredible showcase of hospitality. With Karim Rashid, our celebrity designer, and our brand legacy of innovation, great service and design at economy prices, we look forward to adding a great hospitality experience to Münster, the cycling city."
prizeotel Münster-City is developed by Landmarken AG, one of the leading property developers in North Rhine-Westphalia. The hotel will have 195 rooms fit with free, high-speed Internet and straightforward mobile check-in/check-out.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer of The Rezidor Hotel Group, explains, "prizeotel continues to deliver a design-led, innovative and authentic experience in the economy segment. It offers a unique value proposition to owners and investors through its compelling guest experience, consistent investment cost, and attractive returns through fixed income leases"
