New Beginnings for Abbey Hotel Bath as it's set to re-open as a Marriott, Tribute Portfolio Collection Property
As the country starts to wake after many months of lockdown, it’s an exciting time for the hotel as it is delighted to announce that following a complete refurbishment, it will be re-opening as a Tribute Portfolio property, Marriott International’s newest collection of independent, characterful hotels. The hotel has undergone a total transformation into a stylish and contemporary boutique hotel and thus fits perfectly with the Tribute Portfolio’s ethos of offering hotels that marry captivating design with energetic social spaces and sincere service.
Designed by Street Design Partnership, the interiors are inspired by Bath’s artistic heritage. Bold print patterns, textured wallpapers and statement colours used throughout the hotel nod to the different branches of art and design celebrated in Bath including print, fine art, architecture and photography. The designers were further inspired by the bold primary colours that make up an artist’s palette and developed a colour bank of atmospheric blues, greens, oranges and yellows for the property. These rich tones not only complement the original grand architecture of the building by John Wood but also provide the perfect backdrop for the property’s extensive contemporary art collection, curated by Artist in Residence, Emma Taylor.
The hotel’s 65 individually styled guestrooms feature delightfully comfortable beds fitted with hypnos mattresses, oversized locally-produced toiletries and complimentary super-fast WIFI, water, tea and coffee. The large rooms in the hotel, Gallery and Gallery Family Rooms also come with Nespresso coffee machines and mini fridges. Guest rooms are designed with Art led themes in mind, offering a sophisticated and subtle appreciation for the arts including the genres of Cinematography, Gallery and Print.
Adding to the hotel’s ‘home from home’ feel, the day-to-night ArtBar sits at the heart of the hotel and is known as much for its vibrant social space and curated collection of artworks as it is for its bespoke cocktail menu. The delicious list of cocktails features classics like Bellini’s and Martini’s as well as personalised creations such as the South West 75, inspired by locally sourced Somerset ingredients.
