CORINTHIA Hotels Inter-national has successfully reopened its landmark 517-room Corinthia Alfa Hotel & Congress Centre in central Lisbon, Portugal, after the property has undergone complete refurbishment and upgrade to five-star status.
The project was completed on time, entailing the total strip-out of the 24-storey property down to its concrete shell, and a subsequent refit and upgrade of all interiors, mechanical & electrical installations, as well as the Hotel’s façades.
The Alfa Hotel & Congress Centre is one of Lisbon’s landmark hotels, located at the heart of the city’s financial district. International Hotel Investments acquired the hotel in August 2001 with the scope of upgrading what was then a four-star mid-range property into Lisbon’s foremost five-star conference and leisure hotel.
The hotel was shut down at the end of February 2003 and the complex task of refitting the property’s interiors and back of house equipment initiated. The hotel’s facades and external glazing were also changed and upgraded to match the modern, elegant lines of its interiors. The refurbished five-star hotel now comprises 517 bedrooms, a 280-cover main restaurant, a 120-cover Portuguese restaurant and a lobby bar.
