Great Hotels of the World announces new hotel opening in Brussels

Great Hotels of the World are pleased to announce the opening of a brand new hotel, Thon Hotel EU (pictured), which will officially open on 26 April 2012, following a 24-month development.


Thon Hotel EU is a member of Great Hotels of the World’s Premium Collection. It is situated in the heart of the city’s European district and within easy reach of public transport links. The impressive four-star property has benefitted from the creative input of Altiplan Architects, who have created a modern yet fully functional building with open, bright and airy spaces. The interior was designed by Norwegian designer Trond Ramsokar, whose concept for the hotel was based around light, serenity and modern comforts.


As well as 405 guestrooms and 37 apartments spread over eight floors, Thon Hotel EU will also offer meeting facilities with its 10 multipurpose conference rooms, catering for up to 300 delegates in theatre-style. The largest conference room can be divided into three smaller rooms, providing an ideal setting for gala dinners, conferences, weddings and cocktail parties. All meeting and conference rooms have access to natural daylight and are fully equipped with essential audio and technical equipment. One meeting room will be specifically designated for video conferences. Guests can also enjoy international cuisine at The Twelve restaurant, inspired by the European flag and its 12 stars. 


Respect for the environment and protecting the planet are two of the Thon Hotel Group’s main priorities. The property will invest €72,500 to create solar panels as well as an additional €18,000 reserved towards green contribution, including mixing valves for eco-friendly showers. Further investment has been made to ensure that the property can create its own green energy on site. The property will also educate its staff and clients alike with regards to the protection of the environment. Moreover, the hotel will promote recycling, and will request that suppliers group their orders into as few deliveries as possible, choose green products and offer guests a special Green Package.


Nils Hauge, the hotel’s area director, explained: "Our natural target group will be business travellers to the EU capital. However, city weekend breaks for leisure travellers will also be important for us. Brussels is an attractive weekend destination and we will be able to offer reasonably priced weekend offers. Our hotel range in the city is broad, with hotels at the airport, in the city centre and in the EU district."
