THE original spa town of Baden-Baden celebrates a new record in tourism: in 2016, for the first time, the city counted more than one million overnights in one year.
Exactly 1,007,866 guest nights were achieved in 2016, accounting to 2.5 per cent more than the previous year. About 37 per cent of all visitors were international guests and visitors from France, Switzerland and the Arabic countries were the biggest contributors.
The ‘Roomers Baden-Baden’, the city’s first luxury lifestyle hotel has opened its doors in October last year. The new built hotel has 130 spacious guest rooms and suites as well as a standalone gourmet Pan-Asian restaurant. The lounge bar with a rooftop terrace and infinity pool provides a charming environment with beautiful views of the Black Forest. The 500 sq m spa is overlooking Baden-Baden and offers a hammam, sauna and steam bath and a variety of wellness treatments.
The renovation works at the hotel Radisson Blu Badischer Hof in Baden-Baden are also completed. A total of 147 hotel rooms were equipped with new furniture and modern technical highlights. Natural colours and elegant wooden or carpet floors characterise the room design. Public areas such as the lobby, restaurant, conference rooms and the impressive monastery hall were also renovated. The modern features and fresh design harmonise perfectly with the historical elements of the former Capucin monastery building. The hotel also introduced new services such as high tea in the afternoon, turn-down service and a new gastronomical concept.
