Tivoli Oriente in Lisbon presents new Family Rooms and refurbished Conference Centre
The Parque das Nações’ hotel, in Lisbon’s thriving business and leisure neighbourhood presents ten floors of newly refurbished rooms as well as its Family Rooms to cater for the growing leisure guests. The 11-meeting room Conference Centre has also been totally completely renovated.
The Tivoli Oriente, in Lisbon´s contemporary neighbourhood of Parque das Nações opened its doors in 2001, and quickly established itself as the area’s landmark hotel. With its 279 bedrooms and 12 meeting rooms, sleek façade of smoked glass soars above the busy thoroughfare and tree-lined pavements below.
A highly popular and sought after hotel, it has now invested in ten floors of totally refurbished rooms and bathrooms. The hotel’s Conference Centre was also completely renovated and now offers a total area of 1,200m², equipped with the most recent audio-visual technology and lighting. With 11 venues, the hotel can hold up successful meetings and events for up to 550 people. Most recently, the hotel was the official hotel for the 2016 Web Summit which attracted over 30.000 entrepreneurs and investors to Lisbon.
With its strong high demand from business and meetings clients, who together represent some 70% of the hotel’s occupancy – the Tivoli Oriente boasts a perfect location in Parque das Nações, home of the major technological companies; walking distance from the Lisbon’s Exhibition Centre and many local attractions like the multipurpose MEO Arena, as well as the Santiago Calatrava designed Gare do Oriente trains and bus transport hub. Lisbon airport is only 10 minutes’ drive from the hotel.
For summer 2017, the hotel will be opening its own Sky Bar Oriente on the 16th floor with a show-stopping 360º view over Lisbon, the Tagus River and the Vasco da Gama Bridge. Perfect for events, parties and sundowners, it is set to be the area’s hot spot for the season, with gourmet snacks and salads, signature cocktails and cool sounds from our DJ set.
Superior and Family Rooms
Together with interior decorator Maria Ilharco, and spanning ten floors, the new rooms make the most of a palette of cool turquoise and restful charcoal grey – two colours that mirror the variety of vistas, over the River Tagus and the urban lines of the city itself. In line with Tivoli’s More Future sustainable development strategy, the focus is on local craftsmen and suppliers.
The rooms all offer such distinctive touches as a 32” screen and Nespresso coffee-machines, whereas the bathrooms boast spacious walk-in showers, rain shower type heads and ample glass-topped vanity area. “We’re very pleased with these rooms and our guests’ reactions to them have been highly enthusiastic – we now have all 279 rooms in the hotel fitted out to the same Tivoli standard which our clients expect from us. The revamped Conference Centre has also been a resounding success with our regular clients”, declares General Manager Vitor Matias.
As a response to the growing family clientele, the Tivoli Oriente now presents its own, very practical version of Family Rooms – they comfortably accommodate three people with an innovative and comfortable cushion-packed bed, permanently in place – far superior to the rollaway beds most hotels offer.
The renowned T/Bed is the highlight of any Tivoli bedroom and the new rooms at the Tivoli Oriente are no exception: the down featherbed and lighter-than-air duvets are crowned by four generous pillows, encased in the finest hallmark Tivoli bed linen, ensuring that all-important result: a really good night’s sleep.
To ensure the best experience to all customers, the hotel is certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 3 areas: Quality Management (ISO 9001:2008), Environmental Management (ISO 14001:2012) and Health and Safety Management (OHSAS 18001).
Parque das Nações - a thriving neighbourhood and a lively community
The Parque das Nações – literally Nations’ Park – is actually the former Expo’98 world exhibition site, previously an industrial heartland of the city. It has developed into one of Lisbon’s most exciting neighbourhoods. Here, successful contemporary urban landscapes provide endless variety: sleek residential condominiums, bustling shopping malls and dozens of corporate headquarters, bordered by the waters of the River Tagus and the stunning Santiago Calatrava-designed Gare do Oriente train station.
Although best-known as a business and meetings hotel, the hotel’s prime location also attracts the growing leisure and family guests, who flock to the Parque das Nações’ many visitor attractions – the MEO Arena, the Oceanarium, the Science and Knowledge Museum, the Lisbon Exhibition Centre or simply to try the dozens of riverside restaurants, cafés, bars and esplanades.
