The hotel remained closed for a few months due the Covid-19 lockdown and during that time proceeded with the next phase of its ambitious renovation plan. Its interior areas, lobby and conference rooms were upgraded and now feature a new contemporary chic style combining earthy materials such as oak wood and marble with modern elements.
The new shades of interior surfaces and the lighting offer a feeling of warmth and relaxation.
In the courtyard, the new specially designed Marco Polo Garden, is ready to welcome hotel guests as well as visitors for coffee, drinks or food throughout the day.
The new area combines a natural setting with quality services, in line with all the necessary rules of safety and hygiene.
“The hotel’s management remains true to its investment plan, despite these extraordinary conditions, with the aim to offer high-standard hospitality. Its new vision and philosophy is expressed through its renewed team consisting of experienced executives of the hotel industry,” the hotel’s management said in an announcement.
According to management, the five pillars of trust in which the hotel has invested – size, technology, safety, training and flexibility – ensure a comfortable, safe and modern environment.
The first phase of Grand Hotel Palace’s renovation included its rooms.
The five-star hotel is a member of The Luxury Hotels group which is owned by the Dedeoglou family. Together with its sister property, Mediterranean Palace, it offers a total of 384 rooms, 20 conference rooms, two underground and two outdoor parking areas.
