Chevy Chase, MD – 11, August 2015. After over 15 years of successful co-operation, the Autostadt in Wolfsburg and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company have renewed the management agreement, confirming the continuity of their successful relationship. Located in Northern Germany, the luxury hotel is set within Autostadt, an automobile theme park next to the headquarters for Volkswagen, which attracts car enthusiasts from all over Europe.
Since opening in 2000, the hotel has hosted families collecting their new cars from the customer center and the glass car towers, foodies, and those looking for an unusual weekend escape. This fascinating location with a contemporary industrial aesthetic offers a floating spa on the river, a secret island picnic spot and a renowned three star Michelin restaurant, Aqua, by Chef Sven Elverfeld.
Otto F. Wachs, Managing Director of Autostadt in Wolfsburg and Herve Humler, President and Chief Operations Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company recently signed a new management agreement for the hotel. “The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg is a unique hotel, which has become a flagship for both Wolfsburg and the Autostadt. With service excellence consistently delivered daily, the hotel defines new standards and gives impetus for the city of Wolfsburg and Volkswagen as a center of excellence”, says Otto F. Wachs.
“We are delighted to renew our commitment with our partners at the Autostadt and thank them for their support and investment in both our relationship and the property. The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg has the new and upcoming design and is a benchmark for other hotels. We look forward to continue welcoming guests and delivering exceptional, personalized service at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg” added Herve Humler.
Last year the redesign by Elliott Barnes and the Autostadt team gave a contemporary update to the original concept created by interior designer Andrée Putman. Exquisite quality and craftsmanship are highlighted throughout the hotel’s interiors and form the backdrop for memorable guest experiences created by the ladies and gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg.
The signature Ritz-Carlton Club was added to the fourth floor of the hotel, offering guests with Club Level accommodations exclusive access to a Club Lounge with a dedicated Concierge team. Gastronomic presentations are served in a living room atmosphere with sofas and a fireplace.
Aqua continues to delight guests with the sophisticated harmony of aroma, flavor and textures created by Chef Sven Elverfeld. Aqua is consistently featured in the San Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants ranking and has been awarded Three Michelin stars. Recent additions to the property’s fine dining options include the launch of Terra restaurant, a new Deli and the redesign of Newman’s Bar with an adjacent smoking lounge.
