Premier Hospitality International 1.9
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Hospitality International.
In this month’s issue we take a look at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; we check out the Amerikalinjen Hotel in Oslo; and we explore the Britannia Hotel in Trondheim.
The Palms Casino Resort, known as ‘Palms’ is internationally recognised for its exceptional accommodations, high energy night life, and pools and restaurants. The resort, in one phrase, captures the energy of Las Vegas in one setting.
Each of the three towers of Palms offers a view of the Vegas strip. Named Palms Place, Palms Fantasy Tower and Palms Ivory Tower, they all include incredible guest rooms, suites and villas, and amazing entertainment venues. The Resort is undergoing a multi-faceted $690 million renovation that will touch virtually every aspect of the property.
Amidst the growing intrigue about Norway’s increasingly dynamic capital, Oslo Amerikalinjen has opened its doors. Occupying one of the city’s most recognisable buildings, the 20th century former headquarters for the Norwegian American line, this surprisingly intimate 122-room property is layered with equal doses of subtle nostalgic references and forward-thinking design.
Prompting the hotel’s concept of ‘people in motion’ is its home inside the headquarters of the former cruise ship company, Norwegian America Line, which was designed by prolific Norwegian architects Andreas Bjercke and George Eliassen in 1919.
First opened in 1870 to welcome aristocratic Britons in search of the world’s best salmon fishing, Trondheim’s Britannia Hotel reopened on 1st April after a multi-year $160 million dollar renovation. The rebirth of the Britannia is the brainchild of Norwegian financier, Odd Reitan, who was born in Trondheim in 1951 and who, at age 14, developed the dream of owning the hotel.
The Britannia offers 246 rooms and 11 suites, six restaurants and bars – including its original Palm Court, a spa, gym and indoor swimming pool.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape landscapes around the globe. Go well!
