QATAR: Italian tourism award… for Katara Hospitality’s hotel

Excelsior Hotel Gallia Milan.

The Excelsior Hotel Gallia Milan, one of Katara Hospitality’s flagship international investments, has been awarded a prestigious Italian tourism industry award for its pioneering design and architecture.
The hotel, which is currently undergoing a major renovation and expansion, won the “Tourism for Italy” in the “New Hospitality Structures” category which was announced at the Expo Italia Real Estate exhibition in Milan last week.
The award recognises the leading tourism projects in Italy and was accepted by Studio Marco Piva, the architecture and design firm overseeing the hotel refurbishment.
Chief executive officer of Katara Hospitality, Hamad Abdulla al-Mulla said: “This is a wonderful endorsement of the unique work we are currently undertaking with our partners Studio Marco Piva to further enhance this iconic hotel in Milan. We take our responsibilities very seriously when it comes to refurbishing well-loved properties, respecting the heritage of the local community that is often reflected in these landmark buildings.”
The Excelsior Hotel Gallia Milan, first opened in 1932, is one of the “youngest” hotels amongst Katara Hospitality’s growing international investments.
The refurbished hotel will consist of 235 rooms and suites, wellness facilities, a variety of exclusive dining options and unique conference capabilities covering over 1,000 square metres of function space.
Studio Marco Piva, a leading Italian architectural and design firm, won the bid for both the architectural plans as well as the interior design of the hotel.
Working in partnership with Katara Hospitality, Studio Marco Piva will deliver a balance between the old and the new, creating a dynamic relationship of shapes, spaces and materials that will see the hotel return to its past splendour.
