US: Boutique Hotel brand The Kessler Collection has announced the opening of its second North Carolina property, The Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte.
The hotel’s initial opening was planned for this March but was delayed.
The hotel hopes to capture the artistic spirit of the area, blending art, music and architecture together with Argentinian Bohemian inspiration. The 254-room hotel hopes to serve as the Queen City’s height of luxury.
Richard Kessler, Chairman and CEO of the Kessler Collection: “We’re beyond proud to bring this vision to life and introduce our bohemian flair to the heart of uptown Charlotte. Delivering on our development strategy, the collection is creating inspiring places for guests and locals alike in this popular destination.”
Design has been centred around Argentinian aesthetics, blending materials from the area such as embossed teal leather and brass. Colour and vibrancy have also been key inspiration points for designers.
Robert Fischel, Principal and Hospitality Practice Area Leader, Gensler, said: “Working closely with the Kessler team to bring this exciting and memorable project to reality has been very rewarding, and Gensler is proud to be a design partner. The team’s focus on quality design and attention to detail creates a guest experience unique of the Kessler Collection and creates a vibrant cultural destination within the city.”
The hotel provides a wide array of amenities including a gourmet South American restaurant, versatile indoor events spaces, an executive lounge and a rooftop bar. The hotel is further nearby a wide variety of cultural spaces, including sports stadiums, museums and arts centres.
