Press Release: The Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin gains Certified Conference Hotel and Certified Business Hotel accreditation!
Berlin, August 2010 – Conference facilities covering 1,000 sqm, a ballroom for up to 700 people and drive-in exhibition vehicles, 10 flexibly designed meeting rooms with multimedia equipment, an exclusive VIP lounge, a spa area for relaxation and, as required, a professional events team to lend a hand with planning, preparing and running functions – the Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin’s unique incentive concept has proved its worth: this 4-star superior hotel, close to the Alexanderplatz has now been officially recognised as both a Certified Conference Hotel and a Certified Business Hotel.
The hotel was tested in 7 categories during a three-month audit process. The test criteria included the hotel having its own professional conference section with appropriate equipment, the availability of information material, a standardised procedure for processing quotations within 24 hours, professional F&B services specifically for the conference area, comprehensive event support with a central point of contact, a transparent billing process plus facilities and services tailored to the needs of business travellers (e.g. mobile phone coverage, Internet access, TV with a news channel and a work space in the bedrooms). Daniel Roger, Managing Director of Leonardo Hotels Germany, explains: “We are proud to have passed this test. For event planners and business travellers such awards provide a more transparent overview of the products and services available, thus taking away a significant workload and enabling them to book with greater confidence. We are therefore planning to have other Leonardo Hotels, first and foremost the Leonardo Royal Hotel Munich that opens in 2011, accredited as a Certified Conference / Certified Business Hotel.”
With 346 bedrooms, including suites, the ‘Vitruv’ restaurant and ‘Leo90’ bar and lounge, the 4-star superior Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin is located in the immediate vicinity of the famous Alexanderplatz. The generously proportioned function rooms with capacity for between 10 and 140 people have a friendly, well-lit ambience and are equipped with flip chart, pin board, presenter’s case, overhead, PC and slide projectors, screen, lectern, telephone, fax, WLAN, ISDN / high-speed Internet and Hi-Fi. Andreas Neudahm, senior interior designer, explains: “Our objective was to create modern and above all flexible facilities, thought through in every detail, which guarantee that meetings will go well. Every minute detail that could be of interest to business travellers or for parties and celebrations of all kinds has been taken into account.” One facility that also offers lots of room for realising big ideas is the Leonardo Royal Ballroom. With a ceiling height of 4.5m and room for up to 700 people, plus exhibition vehicles, it is the largest ballroom in the Alexanderplatz area. As a further option, every event is also rounded off in culinary terms by a creative and above all excellent banqueting service. And for anyone for whom that is still not enough, the VIP lounge offers exceptional exclusivity – a relaxing atmosphere combined with a comprehensive range of additional services, such as separate check-in, an extended culinary offering and free Internet access leaves nothing to be desired.
