The Tivoli Oriente hotel, in Lisbon’s thriving Parque das Nações business and leisure neighbourhood, presents ten floors of newly refurbished rooms as well as its Family Rooms to cater for the growing leisure guest market. The 11-meeting room Conference Centre has also been totally completely renovated.
The hotel opened its doors in 2001 and quickly established itself as the area’s landmark hotel. With its 279 bedrooms and 12 meeting rooms, sleek façade of smoked glass soars above the busy thoroughfare and tree-lined pavements below.
A highly popular and sought after hotel, it has now invested in ten floors of totally refurbished rooms and bathrooms. The hotel’s Conference Centre was also completely renovated and now offers a total area of 1,200m², equipped with the most recent audio-visual technology and lighting. With 11 venues, the hotel can hold up successful meetings and events for up to 550 people. Most recently, the hotel was the official hotel for the 2016 Web Summit which attracted over 30,000 entrepreneurs and investors to Lisbon.
With its strong and high demand from business and meetings with clients, who together represent some 70% of the hotel’s occupancy – the Tivoli Oriente boasts a perfect location in Parque das Nações, home of the major technological companies; walking distance from the Lisbon’s Exhibition Centre and many local attractions like the multipurpose MEO Arena, as well as the Santiago Calatrava designed Gare do Oriente trains and bus transport hub. Lisbon airport is only 10 minutes’ drive from the hotel.
For summer 2017, the hotel will be opening its own Sky Bar Oriente on the 16th floor with a show-stopping 360º view over Lisbon, the Tagus River and the Vasco da Gama Bridge. Perfect for events, parties and sundowners, it is set to be the area’s hot spot for the season, with gourmet snacks and salads, signature cocktails and cool sounds from our DJ set.
Superior and Family Rooms
Together with interior decorator Maria Ilharco, and spanning ten floors, the new rooms make the most of a palette of cool turquoise and restful charcoal grey – two colours that mirror the variety of vistas, over the River Tagus and the urban lines of the city itself. In line with Tivoli’s More Future sustainable development strategy, the focus is on local craftsmen and suppliers.
The rooms all offer such distinctive touches as a 32” screen and Nespresso coffee-machines, whereas the bathrooms boast spacious walk-in showers, rain shower type heads and ample glass-topped vanity area. “We’re very pleased with these rooms and our guests’ reactions to them have been highly enthusiastic – we now have all 279 rooms in the hotel fitted out to the same Tivoli standard which our clients expect from us. The revamped Conference Centre has also been a resounding success with our regular clients”, declares General Manager Vitor Matias.
As a response to the growing family clientele, the Tivoli Oriente now presents its own, very practical version of Family Rooms – they comfortably accommodate three people with an innovative and comfortable cushion-packed bed, permanently in place – far superior to the rollaway beds most hotels offer.
The renowned T/Bed is the highlight of any Tivoli bedroom and the new rooms at the Tivoli Oriente are no exception: the down featherbed and lighter-than-air duvets are crowned by four generous pillows, encased in the finest hallmark Tivoli bed linen, ensuring that all-important result: a really good night’s sleep.
