    After 18 months of construction, the 4-star angelo Munich Westpark opened under management by Vienna International Hotelmanagement AG. The festive grand opening gave some 500 invited guests a chance to take a look at the harmonious concept for themselves. The angelo Westpark is the second angelo brand hotel in Munich. Like the angelo Hotel at Leuchtenbergring, which opened in 2008, the angelo Munich Westpark was developed by Austrian company UBM Realitätenentwicklung AG and its subsidiary Münchner Grund Immobilien Bauträger AG. Just three weeks after the first guest was checked in, some 500 invited guests, including investors, friends and acquaintances of the angelo hotels in Munich, celebrated the grand opening of the new 4-star accommodation. The festive grand opening reflected the infectious joie de vivre of the angelo Munich Westpark, with a fashion show by renowned Munich designer Kay Rainer and an automotive presentation by Wiesmann, the leading manufacturer of puristic sports cars. The chef de cuisine wowed the guests with exquisite finger food and a cryo-cooking station, offering amazing sorbets prepared with liquid nitrogen and plenty of know-how. The evening’s musical entertainment was provided courtesy of the musicians from Austrian jazz band “Die Frequenz”.

    The angelo Hotel Munich Westpark
    The new 207-room 4-star angelo Hotel Munich Westpark opened in the district of Sendling on 9 January 2013. The colourful, linear design concept is a remarkable blend of light-flooded architecture and bright yellow, luminous coral red and intense anthracite tones that never fails to hit the mark with business guests, conference attendees and city tourist. The spacious conference area, with a capacity for up to 350 people, offers a convincing, pillar-free design on the ground floor, with natural daylight in all rooms and a directly adjoining terrace. An integral part of all angelo hotels is the restaurant Sunlight and the popular lobby bar Jazz with its black-and-white photographs of big-name jazz greats. A private dining area is available for special occasions with up to 35 guests.

    The new angelo Hotel Munich Westpark is conveniently located, with excellent access to the ring road Mittlerer Ring and the A95 and A96 motorways, and has 70 underground parking spaces. Marienplatz square, Theresienwiese (Oktoberfest) and the central railway station are reached quickly and easily with the S7 train and U6 underground line from Harras station, just a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

    The angelo Hotel concept: Seven times in Europe
    The angelo hotels stand out for their sophisticated, colourful design and are already attracting a steady stream of fans of modern architecture in Prague, Pilsen, Katowice, Bucharest, Ekaterinburg and Munich. The seventh angelo in Munich at Westpark will continue the success of the predecessor projects.

    The hotel was developed as part of the LIVE-WORK-STAY complex that also comprises apartments, offices and commercial space. The investment costs of the entire complex amount to around € 50 million. “This mixture of hotel, office and residential space highlights the long-term use of the approx. 9,500 m² property as well as its ideal relationship to the location,” says UBM board member Martin Löcker, explaining the investment strategy. “Although LIVE-WORK-STAY won’t be completed until this summer, the business success of the project can already be seen.” Tenants have already been found for more than half of the office space on Albert-Roßhaupter-Straße; the interior of the remaining vacancies can be designed according to individual wishes and needs. The 26 owner-occupied flats in the quiet and secluded inner courtyard have already all been sold and the first residents will move into their new flats in March. The multifunctional use even helps to improve the recreational quality: hotel guests, as well as office tenants and residents, will benefit from the 2,700 m² city garden adjoining the angelo Hotel in the back and the flats in the south.
