Hard to believe, but it really has been 30 years since ARCOTEL first saw the light of day.

And just in time for the celebrations, we are officially opening another exciting hotel.

The birthday celebrations got started in Hamburg with a glittering party at the ARCOTEL Rubin on Steindamm 63. Rainer Müller, General Manager of the ARCOTEL Rubin, and Günter Jung, General Manager of the ARCOTEL Onyx, hosted an effective and unique event, during which the invited guests learned more about the history and milestones of the ARCOTEL hotels. The guests were chauffeured to the PALAZZO dinner show in special party buses. Back at the ARCOTEL Rubin Hamburg, the party went on late into the night.
There were three reasons to celebrate in Berlin: 30 years of ARCOTEL Hotels, 10 years of ARCOTEL John F and 15 years of ARCOTEL Velvet. With an original house rally, guests were able to visit various thematic rooms during the evening and were playfully guided through the history of the ARCOTEL Hotels. Included was a Washington Room at the ARCOTEL John F, a Berlin Room at the ARCOTEL Velvet and a Viennese Coffeehouse Room with Austrian apple strudel, Sacher cake and specialty coffees. Around 260 invited guests accepted the invitation from Tanja Schwarzer, Area Manager Berlin.
In Linz, there were also two occasions to raise the glasses. Around 200 guests accepted the invitation to open the newly designed ground floor of the ARCOTEL Nike Linz and to celebrate the hotel group’s anniversary year. Gundula Feichtenschlager-Schimek, General Manager of the ARCOTEL Nike Linz; Dr. Renate Wimmer, owner of the ARCOTEL Group; and Martin Lachout, CEO of ARCTOEL Hotel AG, reported on the swift conversion and the history of the new premises. After the blessing of the house, chef de cuisine Adalbert Pachinger and his kitchen team at the uferei hosted a flying dinner as they showed off their culinary arts in the new show kitchen. After the cake was cut, the party really got started.
The book “ARCOTEL MOMENTS” was created on the occasion of our 30th anniversary under the auspices of Dr. Renate Wimmer and CEO Martin Lachout. The idea was to surprise the guests of the hotel group with a somewhat different kind of book to commemorate the anniversary year.
The book tells the story of the ARCOTEL hotels in their joint effort to leave as small a footprint as possible and to make a contribution to the future. The excerpts from the “Letter from a Bee to Mankind”, written by author and beekeeper Udine Westphal and published in our book, are immensely moving considering the urgency of the situation. Because it is high time that people realise how important the survival of the bees is for life on this earth. The “sweet idea” behind this book was to provide a culinary greeting from the ARCOTEL chefs de cuisine in Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart, Salzburg, Linz and Vienna.
Now if that isn’t a good reason for feeling generous?! In our birthday year, we are in a giving mood and turning the gift-giving tradition on its head, so you can celebrate with us.
On two days in this anniversary year, we will give you 30% off your room rate in one of our ten ARCOTEL hotels in Austria and Germany.
