Fairmont Hotels & Resorts announces its entry into the Czech Republic with the Golden Prague Hotel

“We are extremely excited to be teaming up with R2G, a group that shares our commitment to the market, our brand values and our guiding principle to luxury, authentic experiences and thoughtful service. This makes for an ideal partnership, which will only grow and flourish with the clear aim to make this hotel the prime luxury property in Prague”, said Francois Baudin, SVP Development Luxury Brands EMEA. “As the first Fairmont hotel in the Czech Republic, we will bring the brand’s character to life while infusing it with local presence, making it a place of occasion through high-quality furnishings and an extensive collection of artworks by renowned Czech artists.”

Fairmont Golden Prague will feature 300 guestrooms across eight floors. This includes 40 junior suites, eight suites and one stately presidential suite, which will offer stunning, picturesque views over the Vltava River. The ninth floor will feature an elegant restaurant offering locally inspired cuisine and a Sky Bar with spectacular views over the Instagram-worthy rooftops of Prague. In addition, 27 Fairmont serviced apartments adjacent to the hotel will be in operation as Golden Prague Residences after the hotel opening. The owner, R2G, also plans to renovate the spa and fitness facilities, the 16 meeting and event rooms, which are capable of accommodating more than 1,000 people, and the reception area, with new restaurant and bar venues.

“We are Czech owners and this hotel is truly unique and special for us. There is a lot of heritage connected with the site and the hotel and the choice of the right operator was absolutely paramount to ensure that the heritage is revived and lives on. Fairmont has great experience in managing iconic hotels. We are proud to collaborate with the brand and bring our hotel to the family with The Plaza in New York and The Savoy in London,” says Michal Smrek, CEO, R2G. “With Fairmont Golden Prague, we look forward to creating not only a luxurious retreat for travelers from around the world, but also a lively meeting place for locals.”
