SUITE FAMILY LIFE IN THE CHARLES HOTEL
Family is an integral part of Rocco Forte Hotels’ philosophy, with the Forte family working successfully in hospitality for four generations. Through this experience and expertise, Rocco Forte Hotels is able to provide exquisite service and packages to enhance guests’ stay. With a focus on families, The Charles Hotel, Munich, continue to expand their offering, with the introduction of two new suite categories with two bedrooms, offering space and comfort for families staying in the hotel. The Rocco Forte Suite experience is especially designed with families in mind.
The perfect suite for the entire family
The new Two Bedroom Suites are 113m2 and 145m2 respectively, and consist of two separate bedrooms with a comfortable king size bed, as well as a detached living area with sofa and dining table. Floor-to-ceiling windows with French balconies offer beautiful views at any time of the day. The two large bathrooms with under floor heating, rain shower and bath tub provide every comfort for guests. The exceptional location of the hotel means guests stay in Munich city centre, yet overlook the Old Botanical Garden, creating a wonderfully tranquil atmosphere. Director of Design at Rocco Forte Hotels, Olga Polizzi, used natural fabrics and warm colours for the interior design. The interior of the suites combined with certain design highlights, such as the paintings created exclusively for The Charles Hotel, create a feeling of wellbeing throughout the suite. The Executive Two Bedroom Suites in the corner towers of the hotel impress with their 180 degree panoramic view over the city. The Presidential Two Bedroom Suite with its roof terrace offers a spectacular Alpine view.
The Families R Forte and Suites Programme
The Charles Hotel cares for guests of all ages. A small ladder is provided when checking-in at the Reception so that youngsters can fill in their own registration form. As with all of the Rocco Forte Hotels, upon arrival at The Charles, each child will receive their own passport to collect visa stamps from around the hotel with the possibility of winning prizes. In the room the children will find Charly the cuddly lion on the bed, as well as perfectly fitting bathrobes and slippers. The hotel also offers a Kid’s spa menu and a children’s menu at the restaurant ensuring the youngsters are happy in all situations.
The Suite Experience Programme includes breakfast at Restaurant Davvero or in the suite, wireless internet access, as well as a choice of videos on demand. Check-in takes place in the suite while the staff can fulfil all requests from the guests, such as restaurant bookings, transfers or booking concert tickets. Time-consuming unpacking of suitcases is taken care of by the staff and clothes are ironed on the same day. When settling in, the whole family can enjoy the daily in-suite-aperó-bar, which offers an intriguing selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as sweet and salty snacks and tasty treats from the hotel kitchen.
In Restaurant Davvero guests are spoilt by the Chef with fine Mediterranean cuisine, with tables spilling onto the terrace in the summer months. The Charles Spa, with Munich’s longest indoor hotel pool, sauna, steam bath and state-of-the-art fitness appliances, is at the guests’ disposal for relaxing hours or an efficient workout. At weekends the youngsters are wonderfully taken care of from 9.30am until 2.00pm at the Kid’s Club, and at other times child minders are available. Last but not least, the extremely competent Concierge team fulfils even the most unusual wishes of the guests – naturally also of the children.
Frank Heller, General Manager of The Charles Hotel says, “We would like to provide parents with the perfect accommodation and take over as many tasks as possible so that they can spend precious time with their happy children.”
